Worth the wait? Most say ……
Cyberpunk 2077’ is the highly anticipated and long-awaited RPG by the makers of ‘Witcher’, studio CD Projekt Red. With the release date set for the end of this week, December 10. Based on the global release map issued by the company, technically those in the U.S. can start playing a day early on Dec. 9.
The game has stumbled over many obstacles including production delays, leaks and issues relating to overtime crunch, but finally after nearly 8 years in the making and $130 million spent, it soon will be available for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, and Google Stadia.
Some players that have managed to snag an early copy, have leaked some screenshots of the game’s maps, highlighting just how enormous the landscape is and gives gamers a little taste of the hours of gaming awaiting them.
Also some early users warned future gamers of the large patch of 43.5 GB update that comes along with the download. Cyberpunk 2077 has reported a pre-launch update and a day-one patch, though the contents of the patch have not been outlined as of yet.
Initial reviews have been mixed, some say well worth the wait, others saying its overly hyped up and not what was expected, although there is a consensus that there is well over 40+ hours of gaming to finish the missions and the expansive world is “fun” to explore.
Jeez, to add to the mix of information, the onslaught of flashing white and red blinking LEDs for those with photosensitivity can potentially trigger an epileptic episode/ seizure. So be warned of that, although most video games usually have a warning of this. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be a workaround as the in-game features have blinking lights throughout.
Music related, Cyberpunk 2077 will have an eclectic soundtrack, drawing on a range of genres including punk, electronic, rap, hip-hip and alternative. Some of the artists that will have music on the game’s track include: Grimes, Nina Kraviz, Rat Boy, SOPHIE/ Shygirl, Run the Jewels and more.
Cyberpunk 2077 plays out like a sci-fi action movie
The game is set in a place called Night city, the vast virtual dystopian metropolis set in the year 2077. There are recognizable visual elements stemming from the likes of “Blade Runner”, “Neuroamncer” and even gives off “John Wick” vibes.
At the start, you get to customize the main character and protagonist named V. The extensive character builder and roleplaying decisions lets you customize your character (down to the piecing, tattoo, cybernetic parts, gentalia and ummm there’s even 5 types of pubic hair options). In the end no two players will likely design the same version of V, nor have the exact playing experience.
Violence and oppression aren’t just common–they’re necessary tools you use to get ahead. With your opening mission set to go after a prototype immortality chip from on the mega corporations. You explore the Night City to find that chip.
Upon finding the chip, (some what of a spoiler if you haven’t been following anything on Cyberpunk) your character insets into their cyberwar to keep it safe. Once loaded, a new personality emerges, Johnny Silverhand, played by Keanu Reeves. You have to play to find out more of your main and final quests, as more reviews trickle in as the release day inches nearer towards us.
