The first ‘Night City Wire’ Event has taken place giving fans of Cyberpunk 2077 a look at a brand new trailer, featuring only content from the game’s Prologue missions, to tease us as the wait for the new November 19th 2020 release date:
Hollie Bennett, Communications Manager for CD Projekt Red, is our host for the event and follows the trailer by confiming that just as Smart Delivery for Xbox Series X will give those who purchase the game for Xbox One a free upgrade for the next gen Xbox but those buying it for PlayStation 4 will also benefit from the same FREE update for PS5. More details of these will come before launch:
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Anime series announced for 2022 via a partnership with Studio Trigger and NETFLIX. CYBERPUNK: EDGERUNNERS tells a standalone, 10-episode story about a street kid trying to survive in a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future. Having everything to lose, he chooses to stay alive by becoming an edgerunner—a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk.
Next we get to see “Brain Dance” in action, brain dan in the world of Cyberpunk is technology that allows the recording of memories in order for it to be played back and in the world of Cyberpunk it has many different uses from entertainment medium, military uses and information gathering use. The gameplay shows something very similar to the Detective Mode from the Batman Arkham series where you can forward or rewind a section of time to piece together what happened by fully exploring every element that happens within that section of time.
Everything about Cyberpunk 2077 has just capture my imagination from the very moment CD Projekt Red announced it as its next game after The Witcher 3. Every trailer, evry developer breakdown of gameplay just makes me want Cyberpunk 2077 in my console right now.
The world is just immense in terms of freedom of choice and playing style, the ‘Brain Dance’ mechanic has so many possibilities to how it can be used from a story telling and mission device and visually the world is so vibrant and alive and again, that new trailer is made up of the prologue alone….THE PROLOGUE????
The new delay is a painful one for fans but you can clearly see just from this event and the new gameplay footage as well as the long term plan to build a whole universe around this game with the anime series ‘Cyberpunk: Edgerunners set for 2022, that CD Projekt Red are going full on into this new universe and the game is just the first chapter. Im so excited for this game that I even gave my Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox Controller Box a little hug and whispered…SOOON as Hollie left fans with the news that Episode 2 of Night City Wire is set for just a few weeks time!
Cyberpunk 2077, an open-world, action-adventure story from CD PROJEKT RED, is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC November 19th, 2020.
