CD Projekt Red held a live stream yesterday which eventually showed off almost an hour of gameplay footage for Cyberpunk 2077.
Let’s face it, Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be big, so much so that CD Projekt Red can hold a live stream at random, show off 48 minutes of gameplay footage, and still have plenty of game left over to keep players coming back for more.
In the video below, players will be able to get a taste of what to expect in the game, from how in-depth character creation will be, how combat will play out and some of the abilities available to players, as well as a look at the game’s incredible setting.
If you’ve got some time today, I’d definitely recommend putting time into watching this playthrough.
Along with the video, Adam Badowski, Cyberpunk 2077 Game Director and CD Projekt Red Head of Studio sent out a message:
“What we’re releasing today was recorded from a game deep in development. Since many of the assets and mechanics in the current version of Cyberpunk 2077 are most likely to be modified, we initially decided to show this gameplay only to media. Elements like gunplay (both in terms of visuals and how RPG stats influence it), netrunning, car physics, or the game’s UI — everything’s pretty much still in the playtest phase and we felt uneasy about publicly committing to any particular design. Animation glitches, work-in-progress character facial expressions, early versions of locations — all this made us hesitant to release what you’re about to see.”
“However, we are also well aware that many of you want to see what the media saw.” — adds Badowski. “Although this is probably not the same game you’ll see on your screen when we launch, we still decided to share this 48-minute video with you. This is how Cyberpunk 2077 looks today. Let us know what you think!”
So while the game looks pretty great, there’s plenty that could change by the time the game eventually launches.
