Cyberpunk 2077 and Why You Should Be Very, Very Excited

CDProjekt Red released a new CG teaser trailer for it's sci-fi themed roleplaying adventure yesterday. And man - you should be excited.

For those who don't know, Cyberpunk 2077 is based off the lore from the Cyberpunk 2020 Pen and Paper Roleplaying game, initially debuting in the late 80s.

We haven't been shown any game play, but I'm not worried - because these are from the geniuses who brought us the masterpieces that were the Witcher games. Enough said, as far as I am concerned.

So what is Cyberpunk? Lemme' esplain - no, there is too much; lemme' sum up. (CD Projekt RED, Cyberpunk 2077, Dev, Next-Gen, PC, The Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings)

The moment I saw guns I lost all interest. I like the developer so I'll keep an eye out and see how this game turns out.

Oh my not a gun!

How many games have released with melee weapons primarily swords?

*cough* Chivalry: Medieval Warfare *cough*

Mount and Blade, Chivalry, War of the Roses, then there's also EYE: Divine Cybermancy, Warhammer 40k Space Marine has a pretty robust melee system too. Then there's that over-produced Dynasty Warriors Franchise as well.

Sad fact of the matter is - melee weapons just aren't as fun to play in FPS or even TPS games. Hacking limbs off in chivalry is fun, and yeah it's actually probably more skillbased than shooting, but IMO it also gets repetitive, and quickly.

I'm not getting my hopes up until I see actual in-game gameplay. nope not going to do it. not this time. not again. :'(

You're missing the point entirely, but okay.

It's made by CD Projekt RED!


Also it's Cyberpunk which we need more of along with Steampunk as I grow ever so tired of Modern Warfare!!!

I may not be a huge fan of Cyberpunk or even familiar with more than a hand full of examples of the genre but I was pretty sure this was going to have guns in it the moment it was announced.

In fact by the looks if it, the video is pretty much exactly what I was expecting although I'd still rather have had it been in game. I can't say I'm hyped up but I'm definitely intrigued and am looking forward to seeing more and am hoping for the best.

I love what the video did show, and am curious if the man in white (or gray?) might be the main character, an important npc, or simply pure tease. Whatever it is, its a very "modern" interpretation of a Bladerunner-esque setting and want to see where it all ends up.

As I said... Don't know many examples but its what I can compare it to the most.

You want a cyberpunk game without guns?
hylandpad  +   1122d ago
Cyberpunk typically has guns though - Warhammer 40k, Shadowrun, Blade Runner - all these Intellectual Properties feature extensive use of futuristic weaponry.

However, I am inclined to agree with you - CDProjekt Red, in my mind, can do no wrong.
3-4-5  +   1121d ago know guns and Cyberpunk go together like Peanut Butter & Jelly right ?

I was so pumped for Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The game ended up being pretty good, but it wasn't quite up to the standard of its predecessor. The world needs more Cyberpunk-themed games. I'm excited for this game as well as the new Shadowrun Returns game.

More cyberpunk. Less post-apocalypse, please.

"More cyberpunk. Less post-apocalypse, please."

This entirely depends o the game, genre and studio in my opinion.

Cyberpunk was pulled off brilliantly in Deus Ex, but if rumours are to be believed that Fallout is going in that direction, i don't think it would fit.

It fitted the tone perfectly in Deus Ex as the subject matter of the game was built around it, while Fallout was made for post apocalypse and the bleak, baron wastelands are what sucks me into Fallout everytime and would feel out of place in another style.

Like i said, totally down to personal preference, game and genre.

YES. This is probably going the first open-world Futuristic (Not retro-futuristic) game ever created! Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Need gameplay to pass judgment.

Games have the power to create unique, unrealistic and fantastic worlds, yet, most of the devs this gen just chose to go for the realistic war scenes or post-apocalyptic zombie crap. We need more sci fis, steampunk, cyberpunk games!
NYC_Gamer  +   1122d ago
I'm excited to learn more about the game
Hicken  +   1122d ago
Stuff like this just makes me want another Ghost in the Shell game. One that's closer to S.A.C.
hylandpad  +   1122d ago
I got a very GitS feel from this. Totally agree
OneAboveAll  +   1122d ago
This game is going to be great! I'm a fan of Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell so this is going to be great!
Hazmat13  +   1122d ago
never heard of this game but as soon as i read cyberpunk i knew i would love it! the trailer, the music, the crazy blade lady, i will keep my eye on this one. looks epic.

if cd project is at the helm, its a day one sale for me

I day one buy games by devs like cd project, naughty dog, blizzard and bethesda (the pc versions always work great for me, i know poeple complain about bugs, never had a single game breaking bug in over 1000 hours combined in es3, es4, es5 and fallout)

without question pretty much, they have proven to me with quality gameplay and fast updates for any small issues that they deserve the full brunt of my money

also, for cd project, I buy right from gog, so they can get the most money!
