Hello fellow clanmates and gamers! Have you heard about the new release Cyberpunk 2077? Lately it seems to be the hottest game that everyone is talking about! It will be released on December 10, 2020. It will be on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Google Stadia, and PC! It will also be released on the next generation consoles, Xbox Series X and PS5.
The game was originally set out to release in April of 2020,and then pushed back to November 19, 2020. On October 27th, Cyberpunk 2077 was yet again pushed back to December 10th of 2020. The game’s developer, CD Projekt, put out their deepest apologies on the delay through Twitter; citing that they are working from home testing 9 versions of the game to make sure it is at its top quality on both current generation and new generation consoles.
Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world story filled with action. You will be playing as a character named V, with the main goal of finding a one-of-a-kind implant that will give you immortality. The game takes place in Night City, a megacity in the Free State of North California that is controlled by corporations and not under laws of country or state. With constant gang wars fighting over dominance, Night City heavily relies on robotics for everyday life. Night City looks very interesting to me, and I personally cannot wait to play this game and explore Night City!
Players will have the ability to customize their character visually and their playstyle. The combat abilities in Cyberpunk 2077 are also interesting to me. There are three character classes that players can assume; NetRunner [hacking], Techie [machinery], Solo [combat]. These classes have influence over stat categories such as body, intelligence, reflexes, technical, and cool. You can even have the ability to talk to the NPC in Night City by acquiring a special implant to translate their language.
This game looks super cool to me because whatever decisions you make will affect the world around you. For example, depending on where in Night City you are, if you commit a crime the law enforcement may be alerted. Interactions with NPC are initiated through branching dialogues, and the in game day & night cycle combined with dynamic weather will affect the way that these characters behave.
After the same studio produced The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, it became one of the best RPG’s ever made by this studio. We will have to see if Cyberpunk 2077 will hold up to those same standards.
Well, I am super excited to be playing this game. It looks very interesting and very action-packed. I know a lot of us in XS and in the gaming scene are also looking forward to seeing this game be streamed, or even playing it yourself. See you guys on December 10!
