New Cyberpunk 2077 trailer and Edgerunners anime revealed by CD Projekt
Cyberpunk 2077’s Night City Wire livestream has provided 25 minutes of news and gameplay footage, plus the reveal of a Netflix tie-in anime.
Although the game and the livestream were recently delayed, the wait seems to be well worth it when it comes to Cyberpunk 2077 – the next game by The Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt.
The 25-minute long Night City Wire livestream revealed a host of new details, including customisation options and the concept of Braindance, where you get to play a VR experience based on other people’s memories (a bit like the devices in the long-forgotten Ralph Fiennes movie Strange Days) and use it as a means to stealthily explore out of bounds areas.
The new trailer is called The Gig and, as usual, looks amazing. It’s taken from the game’s prologue and details the start of your career as main character V – although of course they can look and act completely differently in your version of the game.
Perhaps the biggest surprise reveal was a Netflix anime called Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, although no real footage was shown as it won’t be out until 2022.
It’ll be directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi of Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill fame, with an original score by Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka.
Cyberpunk 2077 will, hopefully, be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on 19 November. There’s always the chance it could be delayed again, but CD Projekt seem adamant that this is the final date.
Assuming it does come out when it’s supposed to the bigger question is over the next gen versions, as while the current gen versions will be backwards compatible on both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 dedicated next gen editions won’t be out until 2021.
