Description, Details and Modes
Cyberpunk 2077 is the new game that pledges to be hard to quit plating when it finally comes out for PC, Xbox, and Play Station consoles.
Unfortunately, CyberPunk 2077 has come under fire because it supposedly conveys a message of misogyny and xenophobia. Anyway, it is an action game that connects Blade Runner with Grand Theft Auto in a role-playing mode. Although it is very immersive, such fact hasn’t prevented it from getting haters.
Ten years have passed after its release that was announced in the middle of a swirling maelstrom of controversy mostly due to its salacious and histrionic setting. Although the game is full of bugs and glitches, it is undoubtedly highly advanced and ingenious.
The game takes place in Night City, which is a megalopolis where people are obsessed over power, glamour, and body modification. Your character V is bent over getting immortality. Throughout the game, you’ll be able to customize your cyber-technological enhancements. Your skill set and the gaming style of each character to create your world based on a story dependent upon your decisions.
Feel free to drive around the city and infiltrate in corporations to deal with robotic sex workers and hackers. All of the buildings you see in the game are futuristic. The story continues and gets more complicated as ruthless club owners, hitmen, and cyber-surgeons come into play. As you move on, you elbow with allies and enemies. Just select where you go and where to find the right allies in the world of Cyberpunk 2077.
The idea of Cyberpunk 2077 came up thanks to a homonymous table game called CyberPunk 2020. A classic role-playing game created by Mike Pondsmith, whose timeline is just the same as this game.
The first version of Cyberpunk was launched in 1980 and is pretty much the same we see in the Cyberpunk 2077. The power is taken by the omnipresent megacorporations that disobey the law and rule in a decayed society obsessed over the body modification.
The game displays a world that is more developed than ours, although humans in both scenarios are not eco-friendly at all. In the game, the sun is barely visible due to the greenhouse effect.
Everything plays out 50 years later in Night City. This is a place that mimics what California will come to be in 2077. It is shown as a robotized city plagued with gangs holding rumbles while being financed by big corps.
As far as we’ve seen in gameplays and trailers, the game owns a very artistic style along with well taken-care lighting and graphics.
The game allows entering in some buildings and lacks invisible walls. That could prevent from walking but it is possible to leave Night City to explore the surroundings, which is called “The NET” and place nobody knows about it yet.
As players, “V” will be able to control a mercenary named “V” whose appearance in past life and voice can be customized as per one’s preference.
Many people love this game because it is like “The Witcher”. It is a game developed by the same Cyberpunk’s creators and where sorcerers, dystopia and cyborgs are engaged.
Game modes and details
‘Cyberpunk 2077’ is an RPG game that differs from ‘The Witcher 3’ for being played in first person. You can choose the modes from “Combat” (single player)), “Techie” (double player), and “Netrunner” (Play online).
The course of the story depends on the decisions that are made over time. We can “Choose our Own Adventure” like we do in the ‘Black Mirror Bandersnatch’ episode, where we select dialogues and romantic moments with the characters. Dialogues can be even rude.
Each one of our decisions will influence in the development of the story. One decision can lead to another story. As explained before, our choice affects the missions we choose, as well as the past we pick, and the involvement of the characters. The game also allows us to take different roads to reach one place.
You, as V, are a street hustler seeking popularity in the streets you walk, working for the gangs that take over the criminal world. Attempting to get ahold of a cutting-edge biochip. We inserts it into the head without knowing it was going to infect him with the digital ghost of dead rocker and Johnny Silverhand. One of your missions is to get that thing out of your brain before you die. V is a cyborg that works as a thief raiding stores around the vicious streets.
As a bonus, you have a home, which is an apartment where there are clothes and weapons. You can add attribute points to V’s intelligence, reflex, strength, and body build. The character can take advantage of that transhumanism condition to get more enhancements through the insertion of legal or illegal weapons and eye scanning.
How to Modify?
Modifications are a vital part of the game that impacts on the storyline. Besides, you can avail yourself of vehicles such as cars, motorbikes, and submarines that can be driven in first and third-person mode. You can likewise swim and run over pedestrians and jaywalkers like in Grand Theft Auto.
The missions to complete are thanks to some characters called “Fixers”. They are the soft term they’ve given for mercenary brokers. There are up to five types of missions.
The game presents daytime and night, and a variable weather. Developers have created a multi-cultural, lively, and artistic place from Night City.
Cyberpunk 2077 Scenario
You can play as a stealth player but you’ll have to cope with the cameras and security droids. That would be a shame, especially if you are that type of gamer who likes fighting and shooting. Cyberpunk 2077 offers an array of guns and weapons that can be old or modern. In the game, there’s one scene that depicts a holographic fish, resembling a real sci-fi assassination movie.
This is a game where you have to raid, kill, and steal things. One scene takes place in a power station where you have to find an ECM pulse that brings down a passing aircraft. Once you push the button, the vessel will start losing latitude and you have to pursue it until it crashes. In this part of the game, you see rip-roaring chase sequences as you’re almost flying.
