CD Projekt Red lifts lid on Cyberpunk 2077


The first gameplay details on CD Projekt RED's Cyberpunk 2077 have emerged, most notably that unlike The Witcher 3, this game is a first-person RPG.

Something to look forward to: Cyberpunk 2077 was unveiled on Sunday in a short in-engine trailer, but now we're finally getting some meaty information about the game.

You can read the full information below, unedited, since it's too good to change anything of it.

The protagonist, called V, can be either male or female. "One of the things that's important for us is that we don't want you to be driving all the time. we want the player to explore the world on foot, because it's such an awe-inspiring place", said Rowley. If players aren't happy with their starting apartment, it sounds like they'll be able to use their "blood money" to invest in additional properties. In doing so, it has also revealed the biggest surprise of all: The game will ditch the third-person view of its The Witcher franchise for a first-person view better suited to the game's gunplay.

In a world where you have no future, what matters is that you control who you are.

Fluid Class System - Become a Netrunner, Techie or Solo... or a mix of all three. It's Cyberpunk 2077, forsaking all others.

There's a bullet-time-like ability that allows you to slow down time. As is the cyberpunk way, the city is run by corporations and crime.

It's an open world that you open up more with "street cred".

During a very brief E3 Coliseum panel hosted by Geoff Keighly, CD Projekt Red's Kyle Rowley, (associate design director) and Peter Gelencser (level design coordinator) took the stage to chat about some of Cyberpunk 2077's systems. Quest designer Patrick Mills confirmed that it's a single-player only game, but that their R&D department had worked on some multiplayer concepts and ideas as well. Offering dozens of activities like side quests and Street Stories, the game is a good fit for both hardcore completionists and gamers who like to focus on instant action.
