Almost a week we got a sneak peek into CD Projekt Red’s highly-anticipated title Cyberpunk 2077, during Gamescom 2019. Gamescom 2019, which went live on August 19th, introduced the gaming industry to many new games and hardware via trailers, also showed new glimpses of the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 from GPU manufacturer Nvidia. And now, the company has released a new trailer boasting off the visual perfection the game features.
The new video seems to be a compressed version of the one shown behind closed doors during the E3 2019 event. From the video, we can clearly see that there are two characters available, both possessing a different set of skills. One is a strong built character showcasing skills like strength and direct combat, whereas the other character is a sly ‘net runner’, built around hacking and manipulating technology around the game world.
Moreover, the demo mainly focuses on a particular mission from “near the middle of the game” which is set in a dangerous part of the Night City called Pacifica which can be said as a “heap of disappointment”, currently being shred into pieces by ongoing gang wars. V is sent to infiltrate a rundown mall which is now controlled by a gang called the Animals, who are well known for their skills in using the deep dark web.
Cyberpunk’s release date has been scheduled as of April 16, 2020, and will be released for PlayStation 4, Windows PC (via GOG, Steam, and the Epic Games Store), as well as on the Xbox One. It will be further available on Google’s much-awaited cloud streaming platform Stadia.
