The new details have appeared online after the new demo of Cyberpunk 2077 was revealed to Polish media. The upcoming role-playing game is in development by CD Projekt RED for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. 3 different outlets detailed their impressions and have been translated and summarized on the game’s official forums.
The details that standout are its ability to combine skills, improve those skills and the presence of religions. According to a journalist, this might create a scandal. Cyberpunk 2077 demo reveals new details which are described below.
Conversation with an NPC will be possible without leaving our bike or car working like a classic dynamic chat. Merchants will offer unique items, discounts only for a definite period or at specific times. One can buy merchandise like long jackets, sneakers, t-shirts.
Programs would be included, like to deactivate cybernetic eyes or another to block a cybernetic member. With advanced hacking skills, options will grow from a simple door opening to controlling cameras or turrets. Mini-games linked to hacking will be diverse subject to the installation one hacks. Bots can also hack at a distance.
Surges are performed only by a specialist but minor changes will be possible by ourselves like improving mantis blade by adding poison. Skills can be bettered by a trainer or by installing implants. Scarcity of objects relates to its availability rate. Rare object leads to more street cred for a seller to offer it to us. Street Cred will increase quality of buyable mechanisms for crafting.
Ways to show damage has been changed compared to 2018 demo and have added special animations to indicate the damage taken by the opponent without flooding the screen with just numbers. Inventory will be limited according to the transported weight. When V uses a glass bottle to shatter it on the skull of an opponent it results in a bloody visual effect but shard of the bottle is still usable for stabbing.
Example of interactive discussion between V and Placide in the demo- during the talk, a henchman enters the room with a message. If V looks at this character, new dialog options appear to interact with him. This will have an impact on the dialogue with Placide if used. When Placide forces V to connect to the monitored network during his mission, an interruption is possible because of the Street Kid as only a child of the street knows the way gangs work.
Details on Boss fight with Sasquatch – Fight takes place in a small room with interactive objects. Boss can use these items to prevent us from reaching his back. It’s possible to escape the fight. Each attribute and skill goes up to level 10. 60 more perks (5 per skill), each perks has 5 levels of progression. You can combine skills with doping products like the slow motion effect during a hacking to have more time.
V is level 18 with a street cred level 12. Brigitte is level 45 and the highest level NPC met. A violent response will be sensed if the driver is taken out of his car to be robbed & there is a gang or the police around.
If one pauses the main quest, there will be a lot of side quests available. Plus there will be many events happening across the city and how to interfere with it can lead to a quest. Night City brings together many events. There will not be a classic mission table to state what to do when doing it. But optical improvements will make it possible to pretend through the amplified realism. Braindance is an important part of simulating memories.
The richest will have increases solely for them. Others will not want development by religious opinion. The impression is not to create an identical but diverse population. Cyberpsychose is present in the game. Character can reach it through missions or scripted events. We can see the damage to the improvements on the psyche. Religions are still present in Night City. Vision of Cyberpunk is not to describe an alternative world but endurance of our world. Some things will look like current reality. Like Christianity exists in the game and will even have a faction.
On religion becoming a scandal, CDP said: “We won’t avoid any subject, even if they may offend the sensitivity of some. We are not here to say whether it is good or bad.” CDP has also aggravated community membership as a way for people to protect themselves from danger and poverty.
The type of your character will be at your suitability. You will not essentially choose strictly a man or a woman. One can have a male body with feminine attributes, feminine voice and feminine hair. The type of voice will impact how NPCs will perceive us.
