One of the news that most amazed in this last E3 was the futuristic videogame Cyberpunk 2077. An immersive and attractive videogame, with a huge open world to discover and a story shaped by the gamer’s choices.
We are in Night City, futuristic obsessive metropolis, controlled by a sneaky power that let us believe that what really matters is fashion and cybernetic changes. We will wear the shoes of V, outlaw mercenary looking for an implant which seems to have the power to give us immortality. Someone gave us the duty as always, but it will be the hardest and most important job of our life.
We are in the year 2077, obviusly, and the world reached the technological singularity. The one that today is the America collapsed under famines, rebellion and bankrupt. To keep the control were the big corporations, which, anyway, give an easy life just to their employees.
Outside this small heaven created by the corporations the territory is still divided between the government and the criminal gangs. In this scenario we find the edgerunners, outlaw mercenaries, of which we are part.
The wait for Cyberpunk 2077
Cyberpunk 2077 was announced the last year, with a presentation that let glimpse futuristic dystopian scenarios, iper technologies, urban samurai and so much futuristic and technological material to let pale every other games of this kind. We waited for it for one year and the official announcement to the E3 of this year signed the event by making it the undisputed king of those days of presenations.
As much as that the CD Project revelead that the incredible world of Cyberpunk won’t be made only for the game, but it will see the development of three projects.
“We are working on three things linked to Cyberpunk. There is the main game and other two things. There are three development teams”.
The first project is without any doubt the announced and such waited main game, which released is predicted for the next year. The other two projects, instead, should be about a probable multiplayer mode, promised after the release of the main game, and a third mysterious project. It is believed that it’s already under construction a second chapter, or at least another game signed by CD Project setted in the Cyberpunk’s world.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a role playing videogame, an adventure playable in first person which finds its strong suit in the figures’ roles. The figures playable are customizable, for the aspect, the rating and thanks to the usage of the body modifications with which the future’s citiziens are used to change theirselves.
We will write the story by ourselves. The producers, infact, said that there will be different finals, according to the choices that the player will take during the adventure.
The game’s world
One of the element that is highly characterizing the last videogames isn’t the gameplay but the location, which plays an ever more essential role for a great success of the product.
The one of Cyberpunk is without any doubt a really interesting world. It’s a world studied in the minimum details which brings us in a technological future which is meanwhile creepy. From the homeless that crawls himself drunk toward a bench to the young gangsta that rails against the governative drones. From the murales to the city lights. Everything is studied to create a dystopian and pulp environment.
V by Cyberpunk 2077
We will wear the shoes of V, an edgerunner that for unknown reasons have implanted in the brain an experimental chip which contains the secret for the immortality. But that’s not all, the mind of the protagonist is inhabitated even by Johnny Silverhand, a death leggendary hacker which gives suggests and sarcastic comments to V.
The strong suit of the whole presentation of Cyberpunk 2077 is right this freak figure that lives the protagonist’s mind, a digital ghost that sometimes becomes voiceover, played by Keanu Reeves.
