Cyberpunk 2077 is the video game the majority of gamers are looking forward to when it releases in early 2020.
Why is this RPG being hyped so much, though, and is it likely to equal or surpass the rumors about how incredible it is?
What is Cyberpunk 2077? — The video game is the follow up to Polish studio CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3 — one of the most popular RPGs of the last 10 years, and still thought to be the best RPG ever released by many in the game industry.
Cyberpunk 2077 itself has been previewed at various game shows around Europe in the last few months, with the result that it is now the most hyped game of 2020.
The game has not been rushed — Cyberpunk 2077 has been in development for almost 8 years. During that time, CD Projekt Red has spent as long as it takes to make sure this game is the best they could possibly create.
Unlike other studios that rush out half finished games full of bugs, CD Projekt Red has said Cyberpunk 2077 will only be released when they feel it is just about perfect. No other studio does this.
A completely customizable main character — The main character in the game is V, a street warrior that players will be able to build from the ground up.
Few other games allow you the depth of customizing Cyberpunk 2077 is allowing, especially as the customization even includes the character’s back story.
As the character gains more street credibility in the game, there are even more customization options players will be able to unlock.
An option to play a non-lethal game — While most RPGs require players to kill other characters in order to win the game, this option has been changed in Cyberpunk 2077.
Due to fan insistence that not everyone wants to play an RPG where they have to kill as many people as possible to beat the game, CD Projekt Red introduced a non-lethal way of winning Cyberpunk 2077.
That means anyone who does not want to use the enormous stable of weapons that will be at V’s disposal throughout the game is not forced to.
If they do want to, however, the gun play and choice of weaponry is absolutely solid.
A huge number of combat choices — For players that do want to engage in combat, the options in Cyberpunk 2077 are enormous.
There is a scanner that will enable the player to see behind enemy cover, and weaponry that allows the player to penetrate the cover. There are guns that fire bullets made especially to bounce from one surface to another before meeting their target.
For gamers who love in depth, complicated combat, Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One, PC or PS4 is likely to provide it and more.
