What is Cyberpunk 2077 about?
Cyberpunk 2077 is an action role-playing game from the Polish developer studio CD Projekt RED. Based on the pen-and-paper role-playing game Cyberpunk 2020, it plays 57 years later in the dystopian city of Night City in California, an open world with six different regions - a megalopolis whose inhabitants are obsessed with power, glamour and body modifications. You slip into the role of V, a lawless mercenary in search of a unique implant - the key to immortality. However, the world is broken. MegaCorps manage every aspect of life from the top floors of their sky-scraping fortresses. Drug pushing gangs, tech hustlers and illegal Braindance slingers run the shady streets below, the in-between where decadence, sex and pop culture meet violent crime, extreme poverty and the unattainable promise of the American Dream. Become an urban legend!
The Open World role-playing game with its first-person perspective has already made a great impression and promises to deliver a truly unique and immersive single-player experience. Should the developers manage to maintain the very high level of quest, game and level design over the entire length of the game, Cyberpunk 2077 should certainly be a blast. Technically, the Polish developers tackle the obviously potent Red Engine 4 with something remarkable: Besides the first-class animations, the very chic in-game illumination and the very credible, physics-based materials, it is especially the almost crazy attention to detail, the very high farsightedness and the credible behaviour of its numerous inhabitants that make the dystopian world of Cyberpunk appear extremely organic and lively. The presentations of the game have so far left us in a really great mood.
