Cyberpunk 2077: CD Projekt Addresses Backlash

Rowley believes that the first-person perspective will best allow the game to fully "immerse the player in that world", and that the vast detail and atmosphere will allow the player to feel like they've walked through their screen into their corrupt universe.

After many years of silence, CD Projekt Red recently unveiled their much-anticipated sci-fi RPG Cyberpunk 2077, at the very end of Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference.

While the UI will remain minimalistic while exploring, it expands to give players more details like health bars and enemy levels when in combat, which involve both melee and ranged weaponry depending on player choice.

Though GameSpot's interview with CD Projekt Red's Kyle Rowley was short, we learned quite a bit of juicy information about the game.

The website revealed a number of Cyberpunk 2077's gameplay details. While the trailer didn't show us any actual gameplay, we have been learning some additional information about the game over the days since. In a nutshell, it's a 'first-person RPG, ' they said (via IGN). You can also mod weapons and, by using drugs, augment yourself.

Camera viewpoint aside, players will be able to create their own character (male or female) and select a unique backstory for them by generating a "lifepath", a carry-over from 2077's pen-and-paper roots. There will be much more vertical exploration here compared to The Witcher 3, with skyscrapers and alleyways aplenty, so Rowley wants players to be "exploring these crevices in first-person".

- comment on an uncooperative character's tattoo to please them, or end a conversation early with a well-placed bullet. As explained by the developer, players will "experience all of it entirely through V's eyes", which is a reference to the title being in first-person.

Game Noir - With its mature approach to storytelling, Cyberpunk 2077 adopts elements of noir cinema and inserts them into the future of video games.

You can also enter buildings, even mega buildings with multiple floors.
