The gaming studio responsible for the award winning Witcher RPG series, CD Projekt RED, unveiled a trailer for their soon to be released game - Cyberpunk 2077.
Set in the year 2077 and based on the Cyberpunk pen and paper RPG universe created by Mike Pondsmith, Cyberpunk 2077 puts you in the shoes of one of the good guys in this darkly fascinating game. The game itself will be based on the REDEngine gaming engine, also used in CD Projekt RED's Witcher 2 game. If you are a fan of William Gibson and Neuromancer, the Deus Ex series, or just the cyberpunk genre in general, you don't want to miss this one. Cyberpunk 2077 has the promise to be a killer game.
GameTrailers.com sums the game up pretty well:
"Cyberpunk 2077 will be an awesome game about a hero from the streets, from very dangerous streets. Raised from the gutter, he uses ultra-modern technology to stand against large corporations and others who exploit the underprivileged. The lonely rider takes his chopper, tech and the slaughter begins (laughter). Awesomeness in pure form with an engrossing, non-linear story – like an epic movie."
At this point, CD Projekt RED has not released what platforms Cyberpunk 2077 will be released to or when the game will be available for mass consumption.
