Everything We Learned About Cyberpunk 2077 At E3 2019
CD Projekt Red’s upcoming vast dystopian world has our attention at E3 2019, and we’ve been rounding up every drop of info we can regarding the RPG.
While Keanu Reeves appearing on the Microsoft stage to unveil the release date is sure to be one of the biggest “E3 Moments” this year, his character in the game is more than a cameo. Reeves plays a digital ghost that regularly appears at your side over the course of the game, haunting your mind. Learn more about Reeve’s role in Cyberpunk 2077 here.
Features editor Kimberly Wallace spoke to quest director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, unearthing details about the game world and its six districts. An area known as the Badlands – essentially the city outskirts – is also a topic of conversation. Learn more about the inhabitants of the domain surrounding the city and more about the open world here. Wallace also breaks down a ton of information about what makes the game tick as a role-playing experience gleaned from a massive 50-minute demo at the show here. Cyberpunk 2077 features a “street cred” system that lets you build a name for yourself, opening up new contracts and opportunities as you become well-known for your adventures. However, your rep could also hurt you if you’re trying to stay inconspicuous on a mission, so balancing your reputation could be an interesting feature. Wallace takes a dive into how this system works here.
Reviews editor Joe Juba goes into extensive detail on many aspects of the demo as well, including stats, various approaches to gameplay, nanonwire, and more. You can check that out here. You can even go through the entire game without killing anyone, as our editor-in-chief Andy McNamara tweets!
