Cyberpunk 2077 (XBO/PS4/PC)



  • Well that's a bit disappointing to hear. Would've liked to see my character during some of those conversations. With all the cool shit I've dressed them in.



  • I understand this is a hard thing to implement, but I would love it if they let you go from first to third person a la Bethesda games. I never play those games in third person, but it's really nice being able to see what your character looks like at any given moment.



  • @capnbobamous They've not included a third person mode on purpose to increase the level of immersion. It's so much easier to control first person perspective so you can add in some really cool character set-piece/animation stuff, like the flinch over the Voodoo Boy trying to nab the Wrist Wire. It was widely reported after last years E3 demo. https://www.vg247.com/2018/06/13/cyberpunk-2077-first-person-online-reaction/



  • Yeah I get that, and I understand why they're doing it, but that doesn't change the fact that I would like to see my character. I doubt this'll affect my opinion of the game, it's just a personal preference thing.

    I'm not sure if it's been asked , but can I play the game as all natural human without any body modifications ? You know just pick your gender and go. Think of it as if he or she is a Amish person in 2077. That would be fun.



  • @acidtrip-69 Completely unmodified? No. You basically start off modified lore wise. At the very least you're going to start out with a visual HUD and computer augmentations in your brain that allow you to see information about items and people and etc. And Keanu.

    I hate character customization so I will pick this

    As by default Male character. and it looks more cooler than any customization and most likely cannon V since He is the one that is promoted on trailers and boxart.

    @tokyoslim I was thinking. The game is about being cyber and moding your body. What if you choose to Demode and take away your cyber parts and try to become a normal human ? Or you put too much cyber enhancements and you let out that AI they where talking about in the trailer and AI takes over your body cuz you become a robot by that point, and you don't have a choice anymore. I can't wait to see the story and how it all changes by the choices you make.



  • I haven’t really analyzed the Cyberpunk gameplay a ton so I don’t have a super strong opinion here, but it seems like this game lives and dies by its role playing mechanics. From what I can tell, your options in how you play is what makes this game unique, but the rest seems relatively ordinary such as boss battles where you shoot the exposed back of the enemy. Not trying to take away from art design, music, acting, etc, but it seems like the bread and butter is the players ability to play a variety of different ways.

    With that said, I think I really want to my version of V to get lost in the sauce. Push myself to the brink of humanity. Like the Western thought experiment ‘The Ship of Theseus’: if the original parts of a ship are slowly replaced overtime with new ones until the ship is made entirely from new parts, is it still the same ship?

    I just want to push my character so far into augmentation that they are stronger, more adept, and probably a lot less human than they once were. Chaotic evil if you will.

    Quite the oppose of how I intend to play Vampire The Masquerade 2, where I want to keep my humanity and act civilized.



  • @dipset that's is probably a fair assesment and I absolutely want it to be that over a top of the line shooter/stealth/action or whatever, if I just get a Witcher 3 in a different setting I'll be pleased tbh, but it seems they want to go a bit beyond that.

    And I do think they have shown the mods do have a humanity cost, so similar to the pen and paper game there may be a cyber psychosis mechanic were you effectively lose your humanity after a certain point.

  • Wow. I mean the delay isn't THAT surprising, but five months is still longer than I would've guessed. The game will now launch on September 17th, 2020.

    Yeah I'm not surprised it got delayed, but that is quite a large delay. Feels like they either want to implement something major or I think they discovered something to polish/add, maybe add stuff for next gen consoles?



  • yeah a delay is not the biggest surprise but yikes, 5 months is a loooooooong time.

    Oh well I'll get to enjoy Royal with peace of mind now.



  • So now April isn't as bad, but now September will be crazy.

    I would not be surprised if the new consoles are part of the reason for this delay being this long. Great cause they get to polish, and they get to promote it looking amazing on PS4 and X Box series X



  • Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

    Gutted



  • Sometimes I forget that Cyberpunk 2077 was announced before The Witcher 3.

    Despite how much I love The Witcher, I was anticipating this more because its something new. I wonder what history would look like if they stuck to Cyberpunk and did TW3 after? I think this game is going to be bigger and better than ever because of that decision. What's another few months I guess...?



  • @DIPSET Henry Cavill would be the new James Bond

    Actual development start after witcher 3. that was third person/first person hybrid cyberpunk. and im glad they made it pure first person to make it immersive experience.
