, the new game from the makers of The Witcher 3, has at long last had a proper reveal at E3 2018. The first real Cyberpunk 2077 trailer got shown at the conclusion to Microsoft's E3 conference, rather awesomely, and CD Projekt have been showing Cyberpunk 2077 off during the show.
So at last there's some solid information about Cyberpunk 2077! Here's everything we know about, including the Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date, the details on the Cyberpunk 2077 Character Customisation, what are the Cyberpunk 2077 System Requirements? Will Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer be an option? We also have screenshots and other media for you to view.
Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date
At the moment Cyberpunk 2077 does not have a release date, not even a vague 2019 - so it may be even further away.
Cyberpunk 2077 Platforms
Cyberpunk 2077 will release on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC, so definitely this generation at least.
Cyberpunk 2077 Story
From the press release:
"You play as V, a hired gun on the rise, who just got their first serious contract. In a world of cyber-enhanced street warriors, tech-savvy net-runners and corporate life-hackers, today is your first step to becoming an urban legend."
Cyberpunk 2077 First-Person RPG
Unlike The Witcher series, Cyberpunk will be played entirely in first-person, with gun combat (although katanas are possible too), and only move to third-person in cutscenes and in vehicles - so will actually be closer to the Deus Ex series.
Cyberpunk 2077 Character Customisation
You can choose a male or female character and customise them completely, unlike The Witcher or Deus Ex - everything from hair to tattoos. Attributes can be altered too, including strength, constitution, intelligence and reflexes. There are no character classes to choose from, but there is a dynamic class system which alters as you play - with options including Solo, Techie or Netrunner, with optional classes such as Rockerboy and Corporate unlockable too. The character will be fully voiced.
Cyberpunk 2077 System Requirements
While we don't know what the official system requirements for Cyberpunk 2077 will be, we do know what machines it was running on at E3 2018. CD Projekt Red's community manager Alicja Kozera revealed on the game's Discord Server that the demo was running on an Intel i7-8700K CPU and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080Ti GPU. Here's the full specs:
- CPU: Intel i7-8700K @ 3.70Ghz
- MB: ASOS ROG STRIX Z370-I GAMING
- RAM: G.SKILL RIPJAWS V, 2X16GB, 3000Mhz, CL15
- GPU: NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX1080Ti
- SSD: SAMSUNG 960 PRO 512GB M.2 PCIe
- PSU: CORSAIR SF600 600W
Cyberpunk 2077 Single-Player
CD Projekt have confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 at launch will be a completely single-player game.
Cyberpunk 2077 Online Multiplayer
While Cyberpunk will be purely single-player at the start, CD Projekt suggested in an interview with Eurogamer that they have some form of multiplayer being developed at the studio, which may make its way to Cyberpunk 2077 after the game's release.
Cyberpunk 2077 Gameplay and Weapons
The story and quest system is similarly to The Witcher 3, and likewise there will be a focus on choice and consequence that will shape the story - "you will be able to affect the main story pretty significantly" CD Projekt told Eurogamer. You can drive vehicles, and you can shoot weapons while driving. Combat is a mixture of ranged and melee combat. Ranged weapons fit into three classes - Power Weapons (heavy), Tech Weapons (penetrating), and Smart Weapons (tracking).
Cyberpunk 2077 World
The game is set in Night City, "the most violent and dangerous metropolis of the corporate-ruled future" which is set between San Francisco and Los Angeles - and has elements of both. Quests and points of interest are everywhere, and most things can be interacted with - such as advertisements telling you where you can buy products. Unlike The Witcher 3, which has a large playing area spread horizontally, Cyberpunk's city is far more vertical with towering skycrapers. There will be a full day/night cycle.
There are six districts - the E3 demo was set in Watson, but there are also slums areas or rich mansions. Everywhere will be dangerous in different ways. Players will have different home bases as the game goes along - starting with one, and then others can be purchased.
