The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 Rumoured Easter Egg

Wednesday, 13 Jun, 2018

You probably guessed it from the trailer already, but yes, vehicles will indeed be integral to getting around Cyberpunk 2077's world.

Following the explosive Cyberpunk 2077 trailer reveal at Microsoft's E3 conference, CD Projekt RED has shown off the RPG's gameplay in a closed-door demo session, and first details have emerged.

He then went on to explain more of the philosophy of how you present perspective in games, saying, "Third-person works well in games like the Witcher when you have a lot of motion and movement around you". Impressions from a hands-off gameplay demonstration (via Eurogamer, link below) says that "you can blow people's legs off and shoot glass out".

Night City - in between SF and LA (fictional city). Fortunately, CD Projekt Red appeared at GameSpot Live during E3 to answer questions during a brief 15-minute interview. CD Projekt called it "visceral" and that's definitely one word for it.

You can enjoy some new artwork below, showing scenes and player character samples for a male and female V. It has multiple, deep progression systems with skills attributes and perks. As you progress, you'll develop skills in urban warfare and network hacking, as well as modify your body with cyberware like infra-red eyes or neural reflex boosters.

Jack In, Run the Net - Night City is fully connected and offers countless cyberspace access terminals.

While the viewpoint is in the first person for shooting and moving around, driving can be done in first or third person. You can also mod weapons and, by using drugs, augment yourself. V can scale walls using Mantis Blades to get a new vantage point (or use them to carve up your enemies like the turkeys they are).

Game Noir - With its mature approach to storytelling, Cyberpunk 2077 adopts elements of noir cinema and inserts them into the future of video games. "At launch we're concentrating on the single-player game". However, doing so doesn't manifest itself in the form a of a choice at the start of the game.

It's kind of amusing that a game that revolves around a world that's connecting to a network is letting you disconnect from one.

We don't know when Cyberpunk 2077 will release, but we do know that it's coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
