Cyberpunk 2077 Trailer is an upcoming role-playing first-person shooter video game, being developed and published by CD Projekt RED. The game was announced during the 2012 CD Projekt Red Summer Conference as the official video game adaption of Mike Pondsmith’s pen and paper RPG Cyberpunk 2020. Originally titled Cyberpunk, the 2077 subtitle was added in late 2012.

Cyberpunk 2077 Trailer Setting

Cyberpunk 2077 Trailer is a continuation of the events of Cyberpunk 2020, taking an alternate path to that of Cyberpunk V3.0. The game is set in the dystopian metropolis of Night City. It is in the Free State of Northern California. Night City is located south of San Francisco around the area of Morro Bay, CA. During Cyberpunk 2020, Night City is said to have a population of more than five million inhabitants. However, this number is suspected to be considerably larger in 2077.

Following an economic collapse sometime during the early 21st century, the United States is forced to rely on large corporations to survive. These corporations deal in a wide range of areas, such as weapons, robotics, cybernetics, pharmaceuticals, communications and biotechnology, and many of these companies operate above the law.

Cyberpunk 2077 Trailer follows the story of V — a hired gun on the rise in Night City, the most violent and dangerous metropolis of the corporate-ruled future. A robust character creator will allow players to choose V’s gender, visual appearance, as well as historical background — all of which may influence the shape of the game.

The world is inspired by the works of authors such as William Gibson (author of Neuromancer) and Phillip K Dick, whose novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and subsequent movie adaption Blade Runner heavily influenced the creator, Mike Pondsmith, in creating the original tabletop RPG.

Cyberpunk 2077 Trailer Gameplay

Cyberpunk is an open world, non-linear RPG with an FPS style in which players are able to heavily customize their character to suit their play style. Gun play, exploration, player choice and activities such as hacking are to feature heavily throughout the game with missions, quests and objectives being completed in a variety of different ways.

One such example of gameplay is non-english speaking characters featured throughout Night City. Players may be required to purchase a translator implant to understand them, with varying levels of success based on the implant they buy.

The game was originally stated to be a single player experience with multiplayer elements. It was reported in early 2018 that the multiplayer components may have been scrapped, however in June 2018 CD Projekt stated that they had multiplayer “in R&D” but it would not be included for the game’s launch.

The world will have dynamic weather and a day/night cycle to make it truly immersive.

Perspective

Cyberpunk 2077 Trailer is played primarily from a first-person perspective. A new combat system has been developed around this perspective that includes the use of guns, melee, powers, and even combat stimulants that grant additional bonuses, such as increasing speed. Players may choose a third-person perspective whilst driving vehicles, such as cars and motorbikes. Although players can utilize flying machines, these are all automated.

Attributes

Player characters will have attributes like Strength, which can be raised via leveling and installing cyberware. Skills and perks can also be selected; skills are related to performing actions – such as hacking, crafting, specific weapons, etc. – while perks can be unlocked with both Street Cred and XP.

During character creation, instead of choosing a predefined gender, players now choose a body type that is customizable and can pick between a male sounding or female sounding voice. Other tabs that have further customization options include Birth Record, Biometric Scan (face, hair, scars, coloration), Appearance (style, clothes, makeup, piercings, tattoos, mods), and Biostats.

One can also choose from a set of background stories (Nomad, Street Kid, or Corporate) and other elements to fully flesh out their characters (like childhood hero, key life events, and what drove them to Night City), all of which will have an impact on Cyberpunk 2077 Trailer. Selecting a background story doesn’t lock a player into that for the rest of the story: if a player decides to betray their original background group, they can do so (like go from Street Kid to Corporate).
