On January 10, the official Cyberpunk 2077 trailer was revealed. Cyberpunk 2077 is a RPG based on Mike Pondsmith’s pen and paper role playing games Cyberpunk 2013/2020. Developed CD Projeckt Red, the same developer responsible for The Witcher and the sequel Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings, the trailer showcases a CG cutscene set in a dystopian, futuristic city. The Police, outfitted by high-end assault rifles and vehicles are seen firing at a cybernetically enhanced women who has seemingly massacred a group of people. The rounds break due to high durability of her “skin.” All of this is done in slo-mo as an officer behind her pulls a pistol trigger aimed at the back of her head. After the title screen the scene then changes to the inside of a vehicle where the same officer looks on as the apprehended cyborg is seen putting on a device of unknown function.
Given that this is a teaser trailer, there’s little to go on until more content is revealed. We get the basic premise of the game dealing with futuristic technology and cybernetic enhancements. The game has an atmosphere similar to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner and the Police’s attire reminded me of Judge Dredd. The concept of enhanced humans is similar to that of the Deus Ex series, particularly Human Revolution. CD Projeckt Red says that the title won’t be released until 2015 at the earliest but more information will be revealed on February 5. Below is the teaser trailer for the game.
