One of the 3 "classes" is "netrunner". In the demo, V supposedly did some " hacking".

I'm not too familiar with the source RPG, but I'm sure there'll be some hacking aspect to the game.

In the videos I watched the topic of using hacking techniques was briefly mentioned, while the augmentations you can have done to your physical body to give you extra capabilities was talked about in such a way that it sounds like major aspect of the game. Mentioned were augmentations that can be acquired either from a proper (legal?) source or the black market. And how you can use them to support what style you choose to play the game (stealth for example). Also, to draw a comparison to The Witcher III, there are "inhalers" with different narcotics with various effects that you can use to boost your abilities prior to entering combat (or for some other reason), similar to the Witcher's concoctions.

From what I've read and heard, it doesn't sound like there's 'proper hacking' (like a hacking game), and it's more, gain an ability, then press X to hack kind of thing.

That sounds great though. There never was a hacking mini game that didn't get tedious way way too fast.

that is some sexy gameplay footage. Those crowds! I wonder if they'd all react is someone was to randomly fire a gun?

Also, I want to see how well V can be made to climb those giant buildings.

The sliding-dash-shooting move is glorious albeit it feels OP. The whole "bolting bits of UI onto yourself through upgrades" is really cool, though I do hope we can turn off the GPS quest markers.

It does look very, very good, though you also have to wonder about how much is heavily scripted/made for the demo.

I love all the augmentation and weapon choices but as Ment says a lot of it seemed highly overpowered versus the grunts we saw. I hope stronger more versatile enemies show up that can counter you. For example I hope that there are enemies that can't be targeted by homing rounds.

I wonder how much traversal you really can do with those Mantis blades. Surely you can't just scale any wall you walk up to.

I wish they'd shown of some more detail on how conversations work. I assume you had deeper dialogue wheel like options that they skipped for the sake of the demo length? What ever the case the dialogue did seem very well written.

I was floored by the driving segment. Is the city really that open and that big? Could we had stopped the car at any moment and gone sight seeing? Can we just pop that spider drone and go looking around?

Seems crazy ambitious over all. CDPR makes the rest of the industry look second rate. Shame they apparently run their studios like sweatshops.

Ambitious is the word that sprang to my mind, too. Just watched it through on the big tv. The level of detail is stunning, although - granted - maybe just the demo (remembering the first Witcher 3 footage vs the final game - although maybe they'll have learned from that?). The transitions between scripted sequences and actual gameplay were seamless. Time to start saving for a new pc, I guess. V has the sexiest voice. The voice acting in general sounds excellent.

I was excited before. Now I'm hyped. Wow. Just . . . wow.

To be fair, the announcer DID say "and now, for the sake of it being a demo, we're gonna unlock some high-level skills for V to us in combat against these early-game grunts". So, mantis-blades and weapon-hacking aren't thing you'd normally be using that early. Likewise, V probably wouldn't afford that much reflex booster shots for that perma-slow-mo in the end there at this point, nor would she have the smart or corp weapons, which were clearly high-level gear.

Still, I'd have liked to see the damage model with V taking some serious damage, since this is an RPG, and that's inevitable what'd happen to me 90% of the time.

Interesting take on the car chase. I actually said 'wow' when watching that bit, even if it was on rails. Speaking as someone who always struggles with the vehicular combat in the GTA games, I liked the more cinematic approach to it a lot.

A single frame at the very end of the Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay reveal trailer contains a secret message from CD Projekt Red, echoing Badowski's statement about the studio's hesitation to share the video. As transcribed by Fixer on Reddit, it says:


Sorry to have kept you waiting for this for so long!

Did you like what you saw? Because for us, the fact that we're finally showing you Cyberpunk 2077 is HUGE. Please go to our forums, Twitter, Facebook, Discord, and do tell what you think. Is the game world how you imagined? Do you see what we meant by 'immersion' when we talked about CP2077 being an FPP RPG? How does our vision of 'cyberpunk by day' make you feel? We really want to know.

Aside from that, we think we owe you a few words of explanation on why we're showing you this gameplay now, some time after industry professionals and media saw it at E3 and Gamescom.

Each time we discussed the idea of showing the game to you (and we discussed this idea a lot), we were ending up in this 'we're not 100% sure' limbo. Why? Because (for most people), when a game dev shows gameplay footage from their game, it means that this is how the game is going to look or play like. It's not the case here. Cyberpunk 2077 is deep in development. We have a lot of design ideas, a lot of mechanics being playtested, but we don't know what we'll end up with at launch. This makes publishing videos like what you just saw risky—we don't want gamers saying 'But in that previous video that gun was shooting differently', or 'Why did you change the interface?' Change is inherent to game development and there's a ton of things being modified each day. Our fear was (and kind of still is) that you'll think what you just saw is how Cyberpunk 2077 will look like 1:1.

What gave us that extra confidence to show you a work in progress game? Good initial feedback from people who are accustomed to see games at various stages of development. What they told us (and they told us they really liked what they saw) gave us the boost we needed to show the current version of Cyberpunk 2077 to the most passionate and insightful audience—you.

So... here's what Cyberpunk 2077 looks like today (or rather looked like when we recorded the video). We sincerely hope you liked it.

Again, thank you for your patience and all the thoughts you shared with us.

Yours,

CD PROJEKT RED

I'll have a watch of the trailer later. My expectations aren't great with Projekt Red though as their hype trains haven't delivered for me in the past.

That's because you're cold and dead inside. The Witcher 3 was a masterpiece.

And wow, cyberpunk sure looks interesting.

It looked good and interesting, but I wasn't bowled over by what I saw in the way so many critics so far seem to have been. I'm sure there's a lot more to it, but other than the setting, it doesn't (yet) seem to offer much new from a standard action RPG. But they didn't reveal anything concerning the overarching plot, which might of course turn out to be awesome.

It was decent but didn't deliver on the hype (as is often the way). I still haven't found a desire to go back and finish that siege bit yet. Might wind up as a DNF.

If you haven't watched the video yet, check it out. It's nothing like Witcher besides great writing and high quality art work.

I'll watch it at some stage (can't really at work). Until I see it in action I'll probably remain quite guarded about it. I don't trust hype trains any more.
