Cyberpunk 2077 - Trailer (CDPR)

Recommended Posts

This is first person apparently with cover based gunplay (driving is first and third person). Interesting. The Guardian's game editor also said it's also not as colourful as the trailer suggested, but she was impressed with the gameplay.

Some good summaries are coming out from the press previews:

 

Cyberpunk Info from GameSpot Stream:
  • Game is FPS perspective
  • FPS perspective made to feel more personal
  • RPG with Shooter Elements not a Shooter with RPG elements
  • Multiple different progression systems (Skills, Perks, etc.)
  • V, protagonist - urban merc/hired gun.
  • Full character creation system (Gender, Looks, Lifepath/Backstory)
  • You DO NOT pick classes in the beginning, class system is fluid based on choices
  • Dystopian Cyberpunk future shown in sunlight on purpose. Full Day/Night Cycle. Noir themes bleed through environment and aesthetic
  • Characters from Cyberpunk 2020 lore will appear
  • Netrunner Techie and Solo are main focused classes
  • You can combine classes
  • Optional classes exist (like Rockerboy and Corporate) and you can pull perks from them to add into your own custom class
  • Story and quest system from Witcher 3 is implemented into Cyberpunk similarly.
  • Choice and consequence is HUGE. Emphasized that the game is an RPG first and foremost
  • Story is personalized by player choice.
  • Combat - Ranged combat and Melee combat. Learned lessons from Witcher 3. FPS Melee combat.
  • Weapons - 3 branches - Power Weapons (heavy hitting/stagger), Tech Weapons (penetrating through cover), Smart Weapons (tracking/following)
  • Vehicles - Motorcycles, Cars, hinted at flying cars.
  • V is a fully voiced character. Both Male and Female completely voiced.
  • V's personality is shaped by player. Backstory and interactions shape V's personality.
  • Cyberpunk is a dark dystopia in the same vein as Witcher 3 being Dark Fantasy
  • Details of the world - everything has a purpose. World design was a huge focus in setting the tone.
  • Night City - in between SF and LA (fictional city). Inspired by both cities.
  • 6 unique districts in the city. Each area has its own feel on top of the base Noir feel
  • Exploration is encouraged.
  • Witcher was horizontally huge, Cyberpunk is vertically huge.
  • You can enter buildings, Mega Buildings exist as well with multiple floors and multiple areas to explore within a single building.
  • No level scaling. 2 forms of XP - Core XP - Main Missions and Street Cred - Side missions
  • Higher Street Cred opens new exclusive vendors and fixers (new jobs)

Character backstory customisation sounds really deep and extends to picking childhood hero according to Easy Allies. Daniel Bloodworth from Easy A also said there is a lot of brutal graphic violence on display (the sequence he described sounded rather nasty to say the least). Curious to see how they handle that. The E3 demo press got to see was, unsurprisingly, also purpose built for the show.

I can’t stop listening to the song from the trailer. It’s Spoiler by Hyper and it just *perfectly clicks* for me with the cyberpunk theme :)

Can’t believe how freaking sensitive people are these days!!!! They didn’t need to apologize for that at all, imho. Ridiculous. 

 

The thought-police-rage-machine that has infected public discourse is ironically very similar to the universally bemoaned uncivil and abrasive mentality of online discourse in general.  When you're not face to face with someone, you are more likely to be a dick.  I think that same mentality is in play with stuff like this.  If we were chatting in person, would you be so quick to call me a narcissist, or evil , or racist, sexist, homophobic, tree hugger, hippy, baby killer, uncle tom, or whatever other politically charged name?  Calling someone a bad person doesn't make you a good person.  And yet I think that's the feeling that drives a lot of these public shame-fests.

 

I'm not pardoning people who actually do shameful things.   Just saying that the act of shaming, in and of itself, can be a little shameful too.

Yes. Yes I would.

 

But I think this is part of the problem - so many people these days do 99% of their "socializing" via social media, which distorts and over/under emphasizes so much. I'm always ready to call someone out on their bullshit, and, in fact, I'm more likely to do so in person because I have the nuances and context of body language, location, relationship, whoever may be listening in, etc.

 

I don't think it's that people are overly sensitive. I think they're just socially stunted.

Yeah, add me to the group that would absolutely call you on your shit face to face. I don't need to hide behind anonymity and I've been told outright that I'm a "dick" because I happen to be brutally honest and direct in my interactions with people be it face to face or online. Maybe that's a character flaw but it's one I'm happy to cultivate because it saves me a great deal of bullshit and interactions with people who have no interest in having a good faith debate/conversation about anything.

No, it is not.

Well, it can be.  Depending on how that sword is wielded.  If I call you a fat fuck, and then duck under my truth-teller shield, then I am an abrasively cruel asshole who thinks that "honesty is a virtue" is a license to be a dick.  If on the other hand, someone says "I don't know why I can't lose weight" and you politely and honestly tell them that the donut in their mouth doesn't help, then you're both genuine and funny.  Maybe.

Sometimes people need to be called a fat fuck to jar that donut out of their mouths though. Again, context is key. I called my friend a "fat fuck" just the other week actually. He needed to hear it.

That's my point entirely.  I cannot broadly claim to be a truth-teller to justify every shitty thing that I say.  It matters who, what, where, when, etc...  The details matter.

 

Also, I need to leave room for the possibility that I might be wrong before I dive headfirst into my "truth-telling."  I debate people all of the time.  And I always regret it when I go too far.  Presenting inflexible indignant righteousness.  Why the hell did I do that?  I'm never going to convince anyone of anything that way.  No matter how "honest" I'm being.
