The upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated titles of 2020, and its release is coming soon. It’s going to be a fantastic RPG experience set in a thriving place called Night City.
The gameplay and the role-playing elements are key parts in Cyberpunk 2077. But what good are these if the world is poorly made. The good thing is that Night City looks like an amazing open-world to explore. It’s the main focus of the recent Night City Wire stream as well.
Night City in focus
Night City is a living and breathing world made by the hands of CD Projekt Red. It was the focus of the recent Night City Wire stream, and we got to see the amazing locations that players can explore in the area. Since this is going to be a core of the game, it should come as no surprise that the developers have focused a lot of their work on it.
Night City will be a sprawling open-world. It will be vertically large, meaning players can explore high buildings as well. The streets are filled with NPCs that feel pretty much alive as they each have their own routines. Aside from these NPCs, there will also be gangs that wreak havoc on the street.
Although the game takes a ‘cyberpunk’ approach, each area in Night City feels vastly different from one another. This makes it more enjoyable to explore for players.
The finest details
CD Projekt Red didn’t only want to create a large open-world for Cyberpunk 2077. They also want to ensure that it feels as alive as possible. This helps in the immersion of players.
The game was originally set to launch this month, but it was delayed to November. According to the developers, they had to postpone the launch because they were working on the thousands of NPCs in the game. They want to make sure that each had their own routines.
It will be exciting to see just how realistic the inhabitants of Night City are in the upcoming game.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this Nov. 19. CD Projekt Red plans on releasing new-gen versions at a later date. What’s great is that those that have the current-gen versions will be able to upgrade their game for free once the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions arrive. No release frame has been given for next-gen versions yet.
