At the second Night City Wire stream, CD Projekt presented more content on Cyberpunk 2077. There was gameplay about the guns and the various backstories that players can choose from.
The second episode of the Night City Wire stream lasted less than half an hour, but was full to the brim with new information about Cyberpunk 2077. Among other things Gameplay material on the weapons and the origin storiesthat a character can have, CD Projekt Red introduced two core elements of the role-playing game.
The arsenal of weapons
For a shooter, also as an RPG, the guns are of course essential. CDPR introduced four different types of weapons and also how weapons can be modified.
The four weapon types are Tech, Power, Smart and Melee:
- Tech weapons: Electromagnets accelerate projectiles so much that they hit through walls and other cover. Tech weapons are deadly and accurate.
- Power weapons: The more classic weapons with for brute firefights. Bullets can ricochet off surfaces, however, so you can shoot around corners.
- Smart weapons: These weapons are equipped with bullets that find their target by themselves.
- Melee weapons: A katana was shown here for close combat, but there are also clubs studded with nails or a large hammer.
So-called was also to be seen Cyberware. These include the ones known since the first teaser Mantis bladescoming out of the forearm. It also seems one Launching device for projectiles to give, which can also be found in the arm.
For the modification there is the possibility of changing hardware and software. New visors or silencers can be attached to the weapons, the classic ones Weapon mods through attachments. With new chips the software of the weapon can be improved.
A second big topic was the life paths, so the background story of V. You can choose from three options, these are called Nomad, Street Kid and Corpo. That decision leads to one clearly different prologue for the player.
As Street Kid you wake up on the rough streets of Night City among dealers and other criminals. Clashes with the police are also part of it, but the street holds together as a “family”.
For the Nomad-Start begins V’s life outside of Night City in the Badlands. However, an incident affecting the family drives V to the unknown city.
Who as Corpo begins to find himself as a high animal between shady businessmen and corrupt authorities. However, the fall from these high circles is deep.
Depending on the decision for a path in life, not only does the beginning of the game change, Vs Origin also has advantages and disadvantages as it progresses and opens up new paths, while others remain closed.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on November 19, 2077 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One with a free upgrade for PS5 and Xbox Series X owners (as soon as they hit the market).
