The first full trailer for the long awaited first person adventure/shooter game Cyberpunk 2077 has just been released. The game is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification.
Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification. You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character’s cyberware, skillset and playstyle, and explore a vast city where the choices you make shape the story and the world around you.
Critics seem overall pleased with Cyberpunk 2077, but one common theme across reviews is that it’s fairly buggy. GamesRadar’s review mentions things like “missing vehicles, floating weapons, or random stuck menu bars,” but notes that that CDPR has promised to patch out that sort of stuff with the Day One patch.
In a Twitter exchange, CD Projekt Red’s Fabian Mario Döhla says that “a bunch of issues reviewers encountered (and reported) have been fixed already, [and] some more are part of the update.” Döhla also says Cyberpunk 2077 is “a different game with the console update,” seemingly referring to the Day One update.
Noteworthy in the trailer (which features some gorgeous real-time rendering, but stilted animated performances that trigger our Uncanny Valley reflex) is the appearance of Keanu Reeves as Johnny Silverhand, a significant character in the game. It was Reeve’s appearance at 2019’s E3 Expo that went viral with his remarks back to the audience that they were “all breathtaking”.
Cyberpunk 2077 available December 10, 2020 for Microsoft Windows, PS4, Stadia, and XBox One. It will release for Playstation 5 and XBox Series X/S in 2021.
