Cyberpunk 2077 Demo Reveals Controversial First-Person Gameplay

The thing that makes me most want to leave the meat space (a cyberpunk term for the "real world") for Cyberpunk 2077 though, it's a huge open world game that's a closed single-player experience at a time when it feels like nearly every large game is throwing us into always online space. More details will come as the team has them ready. Gameplay impressions published last night offered some more information about how combat will work in CD Projekt Red's upcoming RPG. In the hour I spent with Cyberpunk 2077 there was swearing, full frontal nudity, serious violence and some body modification that made me say 'eew.' There are noodles in the game, though, so it's not all bad really.

In Cyberpunk 2077 you play as V - a hired gun on the rise - and you just got your first serious contract.

We learned a lot of things during our demo session with CD Projekt's long-awaited Cyberpunk 2077 today, including that you'll be able to play the game as either a woman or a man, each with full voice-acted dialogue. In a nutshell, it's a 'first-person RPG, ' they said (via IGN). Other than that, the combat control seems wildly different, the character creation, and NPC perception is all incredibly detailed and also promises replayability. You can also mod weapons and, by using drugs, augment yourself.

Character customisation will feature heavily, your cyberpunk character V being male or female with a range of options for making their look unique.

Game Noir - With its mature approach to storytelling, Cyberpunk 2077 adopts elements of noir cinema and inserts them into the future of video games. As explained by the developer, players will "experience all of it entirely through V's eyes", which is a reference to the title being in first-person.

- comment on an uncooperative character's tattoo to please them, or end a conversation early with a well-placed bullet.

In addition to the live demo and more details, CD Projekt Red released a bunch of screenshots from the game and, hopefully, we will not wait long for the next update.

Go Anywhere, Do Anything - Cyberpunk 2077 is fully open-world, which means Night City is yours for the taking - if you're prepared.
