WARNING: ADULT CONTENT IN GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE
CD PROJEKT RED today did what we all wanted. They finally release gameplay footage of their upcoming game, Cyberpunk 2077. While some of the media have been able to view gameplay, the general punlic has only been shown cinematic trailers of the game. That ended today as CD PROJEKT RED released gameplay footage from their current development build.
“What we’re releasing today was recorded from a game deep in development.” — says Adam Badowski, Cyberpunk 2077 Game Director and CD PROJEKT RED Head of Studio. “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!”
I don’t know about you, but this has got me super excited. I’m a big fan of this development studio thanks to the Witcher series and I can’t want to see more of what Cyberpunk 2077 has in store.
