Anticipation for the eventual launch of Cyberpunk 2077 seemingly grows by the day. A new batch of screenshots from CD Projekt RED at Gamescom further adds to the excitement for what is described as an "ambitious RGP for mature audiences," set to release in about eight months (barring any delays, of course). CD Projekt RED posted the screenshots to its Facebook page for the game, and the reactions have been overwhelmingly positive. "The more I see of this game the more and more I want it. Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be amazing and [I] can't believe it comes out on my wedding anniversary. Too great day for me and Cyberpunk," one user wrote. Word of advice for the person who posted that comment,... Read more...
Seeing Keanu Reeves make an appearance at E3 to promote Cyberpunk 2077, an upcoming dystopian role playing game in which he is a part of, was a delightful surprise. Less surprising, but no less welcome, is that developer CD PROJEKT RED is working with NVIDIA to support real-time ray tracing on GeForce RTX hardware (and perhaps other cards as well—more on that in a moment). "Cyberpunk 2077 is an incredibly ambitious game, mixing first-person perspective and deep role-playing, while also creating an intricate and immersive world in which to tell its story," said Matt Wuebbling, head of GeForce marketing at NVIDIA. "We think the world of Cyberpunk will greatly benefit from the realistic lighting... Read more...
As we approach E3, one thing we are looking forward to is what kind of development CD Projekt RED, the development studio behind The Witcher series, has made on Cyberpunk 2077. Set nearly six decades into the future, Cyberpunk 2077 will thrust players into an open world that is very different from what life is like today, in 2019. But what will the gameplay actually be like? A cross between The Elder Scrolls and Deus Ex, apparently, with elements of Vampire Bloodlines. Before we get to that, let's talk about the 48-minute gameplay demo the developer showed off last year. At the time, CD Projekt Red was very clear that Cyberpunk 2077 was a work in progress, and that the demo did not represent... Read more...
CD Projekt Red, the Polish game developer responsible for the excellent The Witcher series, sure does like the idea of providing gamers with extended gameplay demos. This especially applies to Cyberpunk 2077, an upcoming open world, first-person role playing game (RPG) set nearly six decades in the future. The developer posted its gameplay reveal, a 48-minute walkthrough of the dystopian landscape gamers will find themselves in. "Watch 48 minutes of official 2018 gameplay from Cyberpunk 2077 and get a glimpse into the world of perils and possibilities that is Night City—the most vibrant and dangerous metropolis of the future," CD Projekt Red said. The walkthrough video is the same demonstration... Read more...
There are few games that have been able to enjoy the level of hype that CD Projekt RED's Cyberpunk 2077 has generated. In some ways, it feels like the level of anticipation is higher for it than it was for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. That game helped introduce legions of new fans to CDPR, so this new collective (and massive) fanbase is looking forward to the next mega adventure. By all appearances, Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be an incredible game for a huge number of reasons, but it's important to not think of it as being a cyberpunk Witcher. At the forefront, last week's E3 event revealed the fact that the game is a first-person shooter, not third-person like many expected (based on the third-person... Read more...
During E3 2018, one of the coolest game projects that was talked about came from CD Projekt Red and a title called Cyberpunk 2077. The devs rolled out a demo of the game that was 50 minutes long that had a mockup of the character creation system in it. In that creation system was a pair of generic male and female avatars on a blue background, both completely nude. The character's genitalia was covered by pixelated boxes in the demo and that was done for the E3 demo only. In the final version of the game that launches for players, those boxes are expected to be removed. Why the boxes in the demo? CD Projekt Red didn't want to have the press sidetracked by talk of nudity in the game, or to... Read more...
Maybe your first introduction to Geralt was in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the popular action role-playing game developed by CD Projekt Red and released in 2015. Given the game's success—CD Projekt Red said in 2016 that it sold nearly 10 million copies around the world—there's probably a lot of users who are curious about the earlier games in the series. Well, if you are one of those users, head over to GOG and claim your free copy of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition. It's an older game, obviously, and not very expensive to begin with—it usually sell for $10, and sometimes cheaper if you can catch it on sale. Whatever, grabbing it for free is still the best deal. If nothing else,... Read more...
Developer CD Projekt Red gave thanks to fans of The Witcher series by posting a short video reminiscing about the past 10 years, narrated by Geralt. Oh, you were not aware? Difficult as it may be to fathom, next month marks the 10th anniversary of the original The Witcher game, which would go on to spawn two sequels and an Enhanced Edition of the first title, followed by a Director's Cut (same as Enhanced version, but without the censorship that was applied to the release in North America). The video is particularly emotional if you are the type who measures life's milestones and relentless pace by what games you played at any particular point in time. For example, Super Mario Bros. on the original... Read more...
A lot of work goes into a creating a video game. Development studio CD Projekt Red knows that as well as anyone, and after three years of blood, sweat, and tears, the company's newest title, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, released to the public. Just two weeks after launch, the title reached 4 million sales, which is something CD Projekt Red doesn't take lightly. "Since day one, you have given us tons of positive feedback and support -- the sheer volume of emails we’ve gotten since launch simply congratulating us for our efforts is both epic and heartwarming, and I wish every developer comes to have such a fantastic community," CD Projekt Red said while announcing the two-week sales figure. "In terms... Read more...
