E3 2018: Cyberpunk 2077's Character Customization And Class Progression Detailed

Ever since the reveal of Cyberpunk, fans of developers CD Projekt Red have been eagerly anticipating it's release.

The game - which adopts a first-person perspective - has a bullet-time effect. One YouTuber, who goes by the name of Tolkfan, remembered this rumour from back in 2015 and placed Ciri's dialogue on top of the new 2018 Cyberpunk trailer.

CD Projekt Red also noted that the studio will now be "significantly more open" about the development of the game and although we do not know the precise release date, we now expect more timely updates. Cyberpunk 2077 also lets you attack enemies when behind the wheel, as the AI takes over driving duties. "But when all the things happen to you, from you, within you, first person point of view is the right decision to take, especially because of the augmentations".

According to Game Informer's Andy McNamara, who has had a hands-on demo session with Cyberpunk 2077, the project is an "open world FPS RPG". We know that. But ads help us pay the bills. There will be much more vertical exploration here compared to The Witcher 3, with skyscrapers and alleyways aplenty, so Rowley wants players to be "exploring these crevices in first-person". "First person absolutely makes sense for us, because our company has always been about creating high-quality roleplaying games", said Gelencser. Unlike Geralt in CD Projekt Red's best known game, The Witcher 3, V is entirely user-definable: you can make the character male or female, and customise their appearance extensively. "Obviously in Cyberpunk 2020 there's lots of different roles you can take on: corporate, rocker boy, netrunner, techie, etc. That's what we want to give you". It's not clear how this system will be enforced, but CD Projekt Red says your street cred can be raised by wearing certain clothing.


And though much of the gameplay is still under wraps, details are starting to trickle out here and there.

Speaking of clothing, players will reportedly have access to their own apartment where they can stash their gear, including their favorite jackets or outfits.

Finally, Cyberpunk 2077 will feature a unique dialogue system.
