Now, the developer has released a 48-minute gameplay video that looks very similar to what we saw at those shows - but now everyone can see the glorious, neon-drenched, frequently-violent future awaiting them in Cyberpunk 2077.
"Cyberpunk 2077" is an open-world narrative RPG based on the tabletop game "Cyberpunk 2020".
The stream is now titled "Data Transmission in Progress_", with lines of white code streaming by on a black background. It's exactly like all of the write-ups we've read of the gameplay demos shown at E3 and Gamescom earlier in the year, and it's the whole hour's worth. An armory in the player's home had a variety of weapons to choose from with the demo player choosing a pistol while a closet had different outfits that could be worn.
The game is set in the Night City "the most vibrant and unsafe metropolis of the future".
CD Projekt RED is careful to note the gameplay footage is an early work-in-progress and things haven't been finalized.
Gamers were quick to speculate that the code could potentially be an upload of the Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay demo files. The use of performance-enhancing drugs, bodies augmented with controversial technology, and tons of societal issues are all part of the game, many of which were shown in the demo. Additionally, they held another behind closed doors demo for press to see the game in action.
Throughout the stream we also see a live cybernetic enhancement take place, as the player character gets a fancy, new eye installed.
