However, it is stressed that Cyberpunk 2077 is an RPG with FPS elements, not the other way round. After the trailer dropped, though, CD Projekt Red went nearly totally silent on the matter bar an announcement in 2015 that it would be concentrating on The Witcher franchise for the next two years, the claim that the game would be far bigger than The Witcher 3, already a hefty title, and the disclosure of an alleged security breach at the company in which an attacker was said to be ransoming internal files relating to the game.
After the debut of the first major Cyberpunk 2077 trailer during E3 2018, CD Projekt Red devs provided various press outlets with access to almost an hour of gameplay action.
Players can expect more information to leak out in the coming days following CD Projekt RED's private demo session.
Cyberpunk 2077 has a full day/night cycle. Cyberpunk 2077 also lets you attack enemies when behind the wheel, as the AI takes over driving duties.
We learn about the protagonist V, that players can shape however they want, some information about the story, and plenty about gameplay, which will be in first-person perspective. The story will be personalized by each choice you make.
In a world where you have no future, what matters is that you control who you are.
Camera viewpoint aside, players will be able to create their own character (male or female) and select a unique backstory for them by generating a "lifepath", a carry-over from 2077's pen-and-paper roots. Then use your blood money to invest in properties all around the city. During missions, you'll clash with hostile netrunners defending corporate megabuildings - both in cyberspace and in the real world. As explained by the developer, players will "experience all of it entirely through V's eyes", which is a reference to the title being in first-person. 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.
