Twitter Lost its Collective Mind Over Cyberpunk 2077's Gameplay Stream

We dive headfirst into CD Projekt Red's new trailer and discuss the day's biggest gaming news.

CD Projekt Red showcased its Cyberpunk 2077 demo earlier today, revealing 42 minutes of gameplay that had previously only been shown behind closed doors at E3 and Gamescom. Today the company has released a 48 minute video of Cyberpunk 2077, and with it a warning that it is very much a game still in development. A behind-closed-doors demo was shown to a select audience of the gaming press, but the developer has finally chose to show the world what gameplay will look like in the hotly anticipated title.

Narrated by a guide, the footage takes players through the beginning of the game, explaining the gritty environment of Night City and the lives of its high-tech inhabitants.

The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red has initiated a mysterious stream on its Twitch channel. Players will be able to use V as a male or female character and also tweak his/her backstory.


You can read below a small synopsis of the game. Since many assets and mechanics are likely to change before launch, the developer chose to initially show this demo to the media only.

Although way too many details were shown off in the demo to list off, some highlights include powerups that come in the form of inhalers, providing players bullet time for instance, and driving, which we got a small taste of.

"However, we are also well aware that many of you want to see what the media saw", studio head Adam Badowski said.

"However, we are also well aware that many of you want to see what the media saw Although this is probably not the same game you'll see on your screen when we launch, we still made a decision to share this 48-minute video with you". The game's story can now be experienced in full, which producer Richard Borzymowski sees as a critical step in the development process. "Let us know what you think!" The game is based on the classic pen and paper RPG system, Cyberpunk 2020.
