Cyberpunk 2077 Latest News: Release Date, Gunplay, Vehicles, Story and More

Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated games of all time and it can launch as early as in late 2019 if it’s ready. The game was originally announced back in 2012 and we saw a demo of it at E3 2018 which showed us Cyberpunk’s systems, character progression, world and more but finally, now we have some latest news of Cyberpunk 2077 to share with you.

Today we tell you everything latest that we know about Cyberpunk 2077 including its release date, story, gunplay, vehicles and if it’s really good looking or not.

Release Date

We don’t have a confirmed release date on when Cyberpunk 2077 will be releasing. Personally, we believe it to launch sometime in 2020 but it can launch as early as in 2019 if the game is ready. We are expecting the next big reveal of Cyberpunk to be at the Microsoft stage during E3 2019 with an announcement of a release date. CD Projekt Red can also do something different this time by announcing the release date earlier at PAX East event which takes place in March. Back in 2015, the developers revealed new Witcher 3 Wild Hunt gameplay at the same event so there’s definitely a possibility.

Gunplay and Weapons

As for the gunplay in Cybperunk 2077, CD Projekt RED’s community lead Marcin Momot has confirmed that no one in the game will be forced to look down sights when firing a weapon as you can also fire from the hip like any other shooter game. Along with that, the game will also feature “various augmentations” to improve hip firing and you will get additional bonuses.

There will be a different kind of weapons to use in the game. We already saw a variety of them from the demo. The weapons included in the game are technological weapons, powerful weapons, and intelligent weapons. Powerful weapons will allow you to damage enemies behind the walls. On the other side, smart weapons come with the auto-lock system with homing bullets. One of the melee weapons is Mantis Blades which we already saw in the demo. There’s also Katana in the game.

Soundtracks

Marcin Momot also addressed the concerns related to the soundtracks in the game. Momot in reply to a long thread of songs on Reddit by said that “after looking at the songs posted in this thread, I have a feeling that a lot of folks will be really surprised with the general music direction we’re taking with the game”.

There have been rumors of singers like Kanye West and Lady Gaga being featured in the game already. Kayne was seen on Twitter following the official account of Cyberpunk game but it can also mean nothing so take it with a grain of salt. The music will obviously match the theme of the game and will complement the “Night City” however according to Momot, we don’t know where the team is going. Music is very important in a game like this so we are all very curious to know what direction they are going to take.

New Story and Gameplay details

Starting with the recent mention of the morality system in the game, it’s not going to be like the one we have seen in RDR 2. A developer of the game responded to a worried fan by saying that there won’t be a morality meter in the game instead they are doing things in a more organic way.

Your choices in the game will be tracked and how they affect the people you interact with. So a ganger on the other city won’t care if you told a fixer to fuck off, but the fixer might remember (or maybe they know each other so now you got a whole new situation on your hand). Basically, we try to keep it as true to life as possible.

Richard Boryzmowski says that there are different communities set up around the city and each one behaves differently depending on if it’s day or night. The districts which are full of people during the day might be very empty during the night. It’s very interesting to know as it’ll allow you to change strategies when completing certain missions which are located in a highly populated area so going at night will be a better choice.

Boryzmowski also explained that they are aiming for a realistic city. You will see NPCs shopping, calling people etc. Also, the game and every situation will be approachable in different ways.

They have to be able to enter in any way, and they have to be able to complete it. This is certainly a challenge for us, but we are building the level design around two things. We want to keep every location realistic – we don’t want to build big mazes that don’t feel right. An office space is an office space. On the other hand, we have to implement all the gameplay systems into them as well.

Also, certain districts in the game will be different from one another. Architecture, music, NPC languages, and cars etc are some of the things which will be different. There are not always going to be buildings around you as sometime you will notice hill or mountains on the one side and sea on the other. Boryzmowski has also mentioned desert which we are most likely to explore at the end game.

Transportation and Vehicles

As confirmed by another game developer, the only transportation you can currently use in Cyberpunk 2077 is walking, motorcycles and vehicles. You will be able to use almost all of the vehicles in the game except flying cars. There’s also vehicle customization in the game. Since a lot of fans are demanding the flying vehicles to be drive-able in the game, CDPR might eventually give players the feature of drive-able vehicles.

Space Travel and Ocean Exploration

There are many advertisement signs hanging around the city which hint us that there might be some space and ocean exploration in Cyberpunk 2077. That’s everything we know about Cyberpunk 2077 until its next reveal which we are expecting to be at E3 2019. Cyberpunk 2077 will release on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 and most probably for next-generation of consoles too when they release this year or next.
