CD Projekt Red has unveiled a new look at the gameplay for the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077.
In a 14-minute clip streamed live on the internet on Friday (August 30), the company gave fans their first proper look at the game in over a year, having released a massive 48-minute demo walkthrough in 2018.
The new demo footage is a condensed version of the one shown exclusively to E3 attendees earlier this year, showing off more of the gameplay and not just its alarmingly realistic cinematic cutscenes.
As revealed in the demo, there are no set classes in Cyberpunk 2077. Instead, players will be able to craft their own classes by combining different skills to suit their needs.
The footage also showcases two different characters with contrasting builds, one being a “strong solo” player who is intended for strength and combat, and the other being a “netrunner” who is used for stealth missions and hacking technology.
Check out the new gameplay footage below:
Players will also be encouraged/forced to make choices throughout the RPG, like deciding whether to join the law enforcers or attack them.
Perhaps more importantly, however, the footage also gave fans their first in-game look at Johnny Silverhand, the character voiced and motion-captured by Keanu Reeves who’ll be the player’s companion throughout the game’s story mode.
CD Projekt Red announced Cyberpunk 2077 all the way back in 2012 and, believe it or not, it WILL be released before this century enters its eighth decade. To be precise, it’s set for release on April 16, 2020.
