We Finally Get a Look at Cyberpunk 2077!

Six years after announcing the game, and five after the first teaser trailer, CD Projekt Red has finally our first real glimpse of Cyberpunk 2077. I think it’s safe to say it was the greatest trailer of all time for what might be the greatest RPG of all time? Okay, I’m exaggerating. Cyberpunk will just be the greatest game of its generation.

Taking place in Night City, California, Cyberpunk 2077 puts the player in the customizable shoes of a hired gun named “V” and throws them into a world of brain jacks, robotic modifications, and cyberpunkian dystopia. A hidden message from CD Projekt Red confirmed a few things. V will be a creatable character. There will be no microtransactions. The company promises the DLC and expansions will be handled just like The Witcher 3. Right now they will not speculate on a release date or the size of the world.

As for the trailer itself, it was absolutely packed with hidden details. Cyberpunk 2077‘s world is one of mega-corporations and public unrest. One of the largest corporations, Arasaka, features throughout the trailer. A couple more appear with business based in space travel and medical attention. There’s a vast diversity to life in Night City, not just racially but culturally, and players will need translator implants to understand languages they don’t already speak. Gangs play a prominent role, as do guns.

And in a subject of some debate, look at how bright this trailer is! Some people were disappointed about this, but cyberpunk settings are not exclusively Blade Runner-style nighttime settings where it rains all the time. Even Blade Runner itself isn’t always like that. Cyberpunk 2077 is filled with cyberpunk haircuts and cyberpunk technology in a cyberpunk city. It looks amazing. If you really want night and rain, I’m sure the game will have time and weather cycles to fulfill your wish.

It looks amazing. I can’t wait to learn more about this game.
