Cyberpunk 2077: create your own stories in Night City
Cyberpunk 2077 – since the announcement in May 2012, one of the most anticipated games of the developer CD Projekt Red. Little is still known about the real story. It is only clear that the creators drew inspiration from the board role-playing game called Night City (“Night City”) of Mike Pondsmith’s cyberpunk series. Night City is the name of the city, which will also become the main platform for the development of action in Cyberpunk 2077.
Time in a board role-playing game is 2020, that is, 57 years before the time of a computer game. Its plot is based on the destruction of an entire urban area due to military clashes between gangs and corporations. Cyberpunk 2077 is likely to show the consequences of such destruction and give the main character a chance to get a lot of money in this environment.
The player-controlled character’s name is V, this is a real “cyberpunk.” The player in accordance with his preferences will be able to change all the parameters of the body of the protagonist, for example, his abilities, appearance and even gender. V is constantly on the lookout for another profitable business in order to survive in Night City, where drugs, corruption, crime and poverty rule.
Nothing more is known about the plot of Cyberpunk 2077, but the game’s release date has recently become clear – April 16, 2020. The project will be available for PS4, Xbox One and Windows.
Cyberpunk 2077: a combination of open world, role-playing and first-person shooter
Cyberpunk 2077 – in the already familiar manner of CD Projekt Red – is an extremely ambitious project, the gameplay of which can already be judged by the official trailer. The main character V. stands out especially. The player will be able to choose for him a variety of characteristics: from gender to appearance.
During the game, you can modify his body in every way, which will significantly affect the ability of V. The devices for modification are very diverse and range from goods from the black market to military equipment. For example, one modification gives the main character the opportunity to get the blades built right into his hands, while others give him hacking tools or a neighborhood scanner.
But that’s not all the gameplay mechanics that await us in the sci-fi role-playing action shooter.
- Interactive open world: CD Project Red relies on a vast open world where numerous objects such as billboards, beverage machines, or moving objects play a role. They help the main character to receive information or create him advantages in battle. So, for example, you can move cars to protect them from a hail of bullets.

The first-person perspective provides the opportunity for free movement in space, easy transitions from the game world to dialogs and in-game videos.

- Romantic relationships: as in The Witcher, you can build the love line of the protagonist. In this case, you will have a choice between hetero-, homo- or bisexual relationships. You yourself will decide which of the potential partners you agree to give a chance.
- Vehicles: V can use various vehicles to get from point A to point B, to escape from opponents or to catch them. How free this system will be implemented is not yet known.
