Cyberpunk 2077 Coming Together As The Most Ambitious RPG Ever

So, you wanna be a cyberpunk? Then listen up, and listen up good, ‘cause there are three rules all cyberpunks live by 1) Style over substance, 2) Attitude is everything, 3) Always take it to the edge, and 4) Break the rules.

For starters, Cyberpunk 2077 is dripping with the garish, neon-bright style of an ‘80s retrofuture. Chromed-up dirt girls side-eye sneering slick side-buzzed corpos, pink and purple neon signage illuminate streets down which futurized ‘80s cars speed down the steel and glass canyons of glittering spires alongside graffitied slums.

This game is going to keep so many people sane dealing with the end of 2020.

The end of the year will be epic. New consoles, new games. It’s been a long time coming

If anyone can deliver this - its CD Projeckt Red.

Thanks for sharing this information.

This seriously gonna be GOTY 2020. I'm really hyped for this.

averagejoe265d ago

Technically it won't be since it's releasing too late. It'll be in the running for 2021 GOTY.

King_Noctis5d ago

You're right. The condition for entering GOTY contention is kindda silly imo.

Hmm that means it will be going against the Zelda sequel, Elder Scrolls 6, and Horizon Forbidden West in 2021

Most ambicous = never bother adding 3rd person view

King_Noctis5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

First of all, it is “Ambitious”. Secondly, do you ever blame games like The Last of Us, Tomb Raider, Gears, or Assassin’s Creed for not adding 1st person view?

Those games you listed are not RPG's that feature character creation from scratch. They don't require customization when the character is mainly predetermined. For many of us, part of the fun in an rpg is actually seeing the character we spent time creating and experiencing the world with them, like digital action figures in a sense. This doesn't work well when you can only see what's in front of you.

This game will feature one of the most extensive character creation system we've seen to date..all for a character who will only appear in mirrors?? Seems pointless to me. Why bother promoting how elaborate your character can look if YOU can't see them??? Even the shot advertised in this article is a picture of V..who will not be seen!

They should have added BOTH perspectives so the player can choose what THEY feel is most immersive to them.

“ They should have added BOTH perspectives so the player can choose what THEY feel is most immersive to them“

I understand about the customization part. But you’ve gotta realize that this game was built around 1st person view. You can’t just add in third person without changing some of the game’s mechanic or animation.

@cjqnsnyc; Deus Ex was first person view, Elder Scrolls have both, but 3rd person always felt akward to me. I’m not gonna lie, I was dissapointed when CDP stated we could only play in first person, but that doesn’t mean the game isn’t ambitious.
