Out of nowhere, CD Projekt Red started broadcasting a strange cryptic video on YouTube and Twitch.
After many hours, the live broadcast switched up and a full gameplay video for Cyberpunk 2077 was showcased.
Whilst not many actual gameplay elements were shown, we got introduced to the world of Cyberpunk 2077, we were shown some gameplay and RPG elements.
More importantly, all 48 minutes of the gameplay video was shot in the game. No additional rendering or cutscenes were added.
In the beginning, the gameplay video showcased the player creation screen. Players will have many options at their disposal to adjust their character. They can change their appearance, their starting traits, and their gender.
The gameplay video also showcased how story-rich Cyberpunk 2077 will be. It touched on some of the environments we will get to see for ourselves when the game launches and it also showcased some of the world-building elements and lore that CD Projekt Red has created.
The gameplay video also showed off a boss fight and some of the gun mechanics. Many people made comparisons between Cyberpunk 2077 and games like Divinity and Borderlands. By that, viewers mean that damage counters are shown on-screen and the gun mechanics feel a little less fluid than your typical FPS game.
So far, we do not know when Cyberpunk 2077 will launch but 2019 has been set as the earliest potential release window. If you’d like to watch the gameplay footage mentioned in this article, you can find it here.
