CDPR outs Cyberpunk 2077 as a 'first-person RPG'

CDPR outs Cyberpunk 2077 as a 'first-person RPG'

All-in-all those who witnessed the Cyberpunk demo note that you should stop expecting this to be a cyberpunk version of The Witcher. V has an apartment and can have one-night stands - CD Projekt Red was keen to point out that it is very much an adult game. Impressions from a hands-off gameplay demonstration (via Eurogamer, link below) says that "you can blow people's legs off and shoot glass out". Through numerous interviews conducted with CDPR employees today, we've learned that the game will be a first-person perspective RPG with driveable vehicles, character creation, backstory generation, wallrunning, and brutal melee combat.

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.

Cyberpunk 2077 is likely to be at least a year or two away yet, so it makes sense for CD Projekt Red to keep its options open. In doing so, it has also revealed the biggest surprise of all: The game will ditch the third-person view of its The Witcher franchise for a first-person view better suited to the game's gunplay. Players will be able to actively comment on an NPC's appearance or tattoos to butter them up, or they can end the conversation early with a "well-placed bullet".

Unlike the 2077's source material, the Cyberpunk 2020 pen-and-paper RPG, the game will not include classes or roles in the traditional sense.




Finally, Cyberpunk 2077 will feature a unique dialogue system.

Given this huge and detailed world has absolutely no loading screens, I get the feeling I could spend time in it as easily as my own life.

The protagonist, V, has customizable gender, skills, equipment, cosmetics. Then use your blood money to invest in properties all around the city.

With dozens of hours of main story quests, and many more of additional activities, there's always something to see and do in Night City.
