The first in-game look of Cyperpunk 2077! It starts off looking more like an FPS game but as the video progresses we see more and more RPG elements.
Update 12-21-2020: The game is out now and I have my Cyberpunk 2077 review posted.
What We Learned From The Cyberpunk 2077 Demo
A lot of the stuff from my What we know about Cyberpunk 2077 post was shown to be true in this video. Along with a few new things. Here are some of the highlights!
Multiple Ways To Do Quest
It looks like you will have options on how to deal with missions and quest. Not sure what they call them in this game yet. Skills you learn like hacking also add more options.
The decisions you make will also affect things in other parts of the game. Like what happens in the Witcher games.
Vehicles And Driving Confirmed
We saw the player driving around Night City in the demo and even some high-speed gunfights.
It kind of looks like you can have a robot follow you around but they did not show it off to much. I am not sure if it can help in combat or not.
Unique Weapons And Combat Skills
We see the ability to bounce bullets off walls to hit enemies behind cover. We also see the player climbing up a wall with some mantis blades coming out of her arms.
There were lots of examples of environmental objects being destroyed during gunfights.
There’s no official word on this yet but we do know the specs of the computer that was used to run the demo.
- CPU: Intel i7-8700K @ 3.70 GHz
- MB: ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-I GAMING
- RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V, 2x16GB, 3000MHz, CL15
- GPU: GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
- SSD: Samsung 960 Pro 512 GB M.2 PCIe
- PSU: Corsair SF600 600W
Cyberpunk 2077 Price
This was not part of the demo but I noticed that Newegg has the game up for pre-order. Based on their websites it looks like Cyberpunk 2077 will cost $59.99.
UPDATE: The current release date is set to December 10, 2020.
I was kind of expecting a Witcher game in the future but I feel like Cyberpunk 2077 is way more than that. It kind of felt like some kind of a mix between Witcher 3, Deus Ex, Grand Theft Auto, and Watch Dogs. But way bigger then all of them. The amount of detail in the environment and the number of NPC’s walking around made Night City look amazing. I wonder what kind of computer we will need to run this game!?
