Cyberpunk 2077 - CDProjekt's New Joint

CG Trailer:


The world of Cyberpunk 2077 presents a grim vision of the future. Tech advancement went hand in hand with the decay of society. Body augmentations invented to serve society simply multiplied the problems, and sometimes lead to mayhem on the streets. New inventions led to addictions and poverty became an even larger problem.

In Cyberpunk 2077, the player will be thrown into a dark future. The metropolis of Night City is a stage set to tell the tale of one individual, raised on the streets, who tries to lift himself up from the gutter and find a way to survive amongst boostergangs and megacorporations in a city of filth and sin. Drugs, violence, poverty and exclusion haven’t disappeared by 2077, as people stayed as they were for centuries – greedy, closed-minded and weak. But not only ghosts of the past trouble mankind, but new issues have appeared. Psychos go on rampages and the streets are filled with junkies addicted to a new form of entertainment – the braindance, a cheap way to experience the emotions and stimuli of someone else, someone living a more exciting life.

Braindances are digital recordings of a person’s experience. The viewer can stream a braindance directly into his neural system via special brain augmentations, called a BD player. Braindances allow the viewer to experience all brain processes registered, including emotions, muscle movements and all stimuli perceived by the recording person.

The range of themes of these recordings varies from simple braindances made by megacorporations, which e.g. allow the viewer to feel the full experience of an explorer with all its thrills, sweats, smells, views, sounds and the real feeling of curiosity that pushes men to go beyond the horizon against fear and physical weakness. But there are also more controversial sides of braindance, because some recordings are created illegally in the underground. Entering the mind of a serial killer means not only seeing the monstrosity he performs, but also living his lust to kill and fulfillment.

You haven’t experienced the latest New Hollywood recording? You’re nobody! The streets live with braindances, everyone just got crazy and wants to be a part of this new entertainment fad. Some people push it even too far and they cannot stop living other people’s lives. If you’re not linked to a braindance right now, you are probably discussing what happened to you during your last session. Of course, just like every great new cultural movement, BDs have people who criticize them. Just watch these two guys arguing about this phenomena [pdf | doc].

This is the world of 2077. The gap between high and low is bigger than ever. Drugs, violence, braindance, psychos on the loose… Will you be able to function in this defunct society or end up a BD-junky with nothing left, set aside like garbage - still living someone’s else life – not aware of what’s going on around you? Whether you like it or not - this is the age of braindance decadence; this is Cyberpunk 2077.

Ok, this looks like the sole contender for day1 purchase for 2013 so far

2015 or when it’s done.

Ha, awesome.

Nope. I beat that one by two minutes!

Or did you ;-)

Ah, that one. Yeah, I searched and saw that thread. I’d rather have a clean one that actually has the game’s name in the thread title.

ah - ok sorry :-)

Anyways - I’m still very excited about the game, even though its this far out in the future. If they can pull off what they say they want, its going to be great!

I don’t think bullets are goint to break that way, but maybe in the future have new materials so, I dunno.

Sexbot is the best bot.

Since we are going to wait forever for this to release, I hope any other game with cyberpunk settings are released before that date.

Isn’t this being developed internally at CDProjekt? How does that make it a joint?

Fantastic teaser, but what really got my blood pumping was the Witcher 3 february 5th information there.

2015 or when it’s done? Hmmm, this thread is a little early. Great trailer though. I still mean to finish The Witcher and then move on to the sequel. Maybe by 2015, I’ll be ready for their next game.

I think what Paul_cze was referring to indicates Witcher 3 will probably be out later this year or early next. So that will be before Cyberpunk. Which raises the question of why they felt they needed to announce it so early.

Updated OP with PR info.


Looks like in the trailer screenshot Telefrog posted, it’s kind of a buzz creator and a way to attract some talent. They say they are still building the dev team, and want to recruit people.

It’s too bad she won’t live. But then again, who does?

Are you here to fuck?
