New Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay video reveals futuristic features and some of the story beats. Flying cars haven’t looked this good since Blade Runner.
There is a new Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay video that shows off unseen parts of the game like flying cars, super strength, and a lot more. The video is 25 minutes of neon-colored gameplay played in 4K on a console provided by CD Projekt Red and went on YouTube this last Thursday. It already has over a quarter of a million views on a channel with only ten thousand subscribers, showing just how much anticipating there is for the title.
Cyberpunk 2077 was originally set to come out in April, but due to COVID-19 shifting everyone’s plans the release date got pushed back to November. This has left many fans impatient and antsy to get their hands on it. People want their techno RPG fix, and they want it now. This is the most recent of of many gameplay videos with the oldest having come out back in 2018.
The gameplay starts with Jackie, the protagonist’s criminal best friend, and the protagonist trying to steal the same car. From there it jumps around in the story and throughout the game world, showing off different settings and all their pretty textures. One of the most exciting features shown is Braindance mode, a super recording implant that lets the player relive moments the machine witnessed. It gives players full control of these digital memories and looks like it will play somewhat like Batman: Arkham Knight‘s detective sequences. This RPG will be more than just a conversation simulator or a shoot ’em up.
Outside of what this game might do that’s new and exciting to RPGs as a genre, Cyberpunk 2077’s core gameplay still looks smooth and despite poor controller aiming in this particular video, the preview teases some of the car-to-car combat which seems exciting for when Cyberpunk 2077’s multiplayer component debuts in 2022. There’s perhaps some discussion to be had about the time-to-kill on the gunplay (weak bullets!) but later they show off a machine gun which seems to have much more of an impact on the game’s nameless enemies. The driving looks good and there’s even some boxing combat on display – which we hope builds on one of The Witcher 3‘s best parts (the fist fights.)
This Cyberpunk 2077 video shows a lot of polish around character and environment, with not as much polish on what players will be actually doing. The shooting appears fine in this console preview, but it’s nothing spectacular at a glance and the HUD elements are annoying. It’s of course a “WORK IN PROGRESS” as is splashed along top of the video – and there are undoubtedly settings to customize some of this – so we look forward to getting our own hands-on session with the title. Screen Rant has pitched for a preview opportunity of the game.
