Cyberpunk 2077 was first introduced to us way back in 2012 which promised gamers something even better and bigger than CD Projekt Red’s previous game release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – which was a sure favourite in the gaming industry. Cyberpunk 2077 takes place in the future in a fictional city called Night City which, is said to be “located” between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The city is massive and has six districts for you to discover without loading screens. It is completely uninterrupted and there’s plenty of vehicles to drive around town in.
Character creation has become a big part of gaming and it’s no surprise that Cyberpunk is going down this route. Within the character creation, you can play different genders, have wacky hairstyles all the way down to tattoos. Like the Witcher, you can have romantic relationships with characters within the game and you can really define your character and their sexuality any way you like – there’s NPCs who are gay, bi and straight which gives it a realistic feel.
However, sexuality isn’t the only thing that is diverse in Cyberpunk 2077, there’s so much more to your character and its creation that really makes it realistic. You can also create your character’s back story and how you set this story up will affect how other characters regard you. Thus, opening up many opportunities to your gameplay. You have your own apartment which is set up like a base where you can equip your weapons and street cred as well as for taking partners back to.
Along with the vast character creation menus, you can also upgrade yourself or your Cyberware. There are plenty different skills to unlock to allow gamers to play how they choose, for example: you can have augments that zoom in on your enemies to upgrading the amount of damage you can do. In addition to this, there are also side missions which could actually affect the main storyline. So, it makes gamers really think of how they want to play.
Although the date for release has still not been set, there has been speculation that it will be released between 2019 and 2021 and it will be released on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4. Multiplayer won’t be released with the launch of the game but it cannot be said that it won’t be released after launch.
