Cyberpunk 2077 sets you free in what appears to be an incredibly detailed open world known as Night City, located in a futuristic dystopian northern California. Towers of concrete buildings and neon lights are just a few of the elements that make up Night City; active stores and dense crowds create a close atmosphere that feels lived in. And in 48 minutes of game revealing recordings, you have a taste of how it is to wander the extensive Night City in Cyberpunk 2077.
The demo takes place in the Watson district in Night City, where NPCs strive and have their own independent conversations. You can take on assignments in the city and engage with things that are happening around you, but the world will also be reactive to you, sometimes in subtle ways. In a small example, an ad impression switches content that is specifically targeted to V, the player character, which then places a marker to where to find the product.
When it comes to open world crossing, it is demonstrated that the developer CD Project Red aims to have Night City seamlessly explored without explicitly loading screen or load times. It will also be an active daydream throughout the game.
This is the first public to reveal Cyberpunk 2077 games and you can see the full demo here on GameSpot. Although there is no release date, let alone a release window, the game is confirmed for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. If you are fascinated by the gaming world, be sure to retrieve the source material in the interview with Cyberpunk creator Mike Pondsmith.
