Gamers from all over the world are eagerly awaiting the release of Cyberpunk 2077. But you never wondered why this game is the first in the list of the most anticipated projects of 2020?
Why is there so much talk about her and why is she called in absentia the best fantastic game in the history of the industry?
Because Cyberpunk 2077 developers creating “The Witcher”
Even four years later, The Witcher 3 is still cited as an example. Since then it did not work even a single game in the genre of RPG, which would be comparable to the magnitude of the third, “The Witcher“. Poles from CD Projekt RED have proven that they can create fun games with live characters. Although Cyberpunk 2077 will be just the second big studio project after The Witcher, there is practically no doubt that another masterpiece will be released. Too much effort, time (the game has been developed already since 2012), and finances have been spent on this business. If the Polish developers wanted to release their long-term construction as soon as possible, then they would not have transferred Cyberpunk 2077 from April to September 2020. That is why CD Projekt RED games are so high-quality and optimized.
Because in Cyberpunk 2077 there will be Keanu Reeves
The fact that it was Keanu Reeves who was invited to the role of Johnny Silverhand – a military deserter, rock musician, and independence fighter – can be easily explained. The actor knows firsthand what cyberpunk and the dystopian technocratic world are. In 1995, he starred in the movie “Johnny Mnemonic”, where he played the role of courier Johnny, who transported important information on a chip implanted in the brain. And then, four years later, the legendary Matrix was released, after which the actor gained worldwide fame.
For fans of science fiction, he is Johnny’s mnemonics and cult Neo, and for fans of action movies, purposeful and charming John Wick.
CD Projekt RED needed a vibrant personality with whom their product would be associated. We can say that the Poles pulled out an ace from the deck – just imagine what boost sales Reeves will give in the project. We are sure that there are many people who will buy Cyberpunk 2077 just for the sake of it.
Because Cyberpunk 2077 costs half as much as other games
When for the new ” Star Wars ” are asked to 3500 rubles, Cyberpunk 2077 is selling for a modest (compared to the other major games from other studios) 2000 rubles. And there are no special and additional versions, apart from the collector’s edition – you get a full copy of the game for a single price tag.
Collector’s Edition can be purchased for 20 000 rubles. It included the following items: a thematic collection box, a copy of the game, a metal case for discs, a collectible figurine depicting the main character of the game, a set of metal icons, a metal key chain, a copy of the Night City Guide with comments, badges, a directory with information about the game world and its history, postcards from Night City, a map of the city, a set for sticker bombing, a soundtrack, a booklet with illustrations, a book of rules for a board role-playing game, a desktop wallpaper.
All this is relevant only for those who play on the PC – on consoles you will have to pay another 2,000 rubles. But the developers are not to blame for this: if Steam has a regional pricing policy, then on the PlayStation and Xbox there is no such policy, and all games sell for a fixed $ 60. In any case, developers can only be praised for honesty – they understand that more people can buy their product if they don’t overstate the price tag. By the way, The Witcher 3 at one time sold for the same money.
Because the topic of cyberpunk is very interesting for gamers
Despite the fact that cyberpunk seems popular and in-demand among science fiction writers, it is not so common in games. It is possible that after the success of Cyberpunk 2077, developers will reconsider their attitude on this topic.
When they touch cyberpunk in games, they remember about Deus Ex and System Shock. Probably, if not for these games, then cyberpunk would not exist in the industry at all. The creation of the Poles has every chance to stand next to the listed masterpieces, showing that the theme of modifications, virtual reality, and digital technology remains relevant. People have always been interested in how their world will look in the near future.
Because the game world will be huge
The scope of Cyberpunk 2077 is staggering: the game will have a huge world exceeding the locations from The Witcher 3 with all the additions as much as (!) Four times. We have to be in the megalopolis of the future called Night City, which is divided into six districts:
- In the center of the city, there are large corporations, luxury apartments, in which the rich mainly live.
- In Santa Domingo, there are factories, power plants, and generators.
- Bandits and scum of society live in the Pacific.
- Watson is considered the shopping center of the city where Asians live.
- Hispanics based in Haywood. Gangs, corporations, and other fractions of the city live in this area.
- Westbrook is another district for the rich, which houses expensive restaurants, shopping centers, and mansions.
Because in Cyberpunk 2077 everything will be like in life
Cyberpunk 2077 will be the most “adult” and the serious game about corruption, drugs, crime, and poverty. The authors say that in the game, as in life, everything that happens will consist of white and black stripes.
As in The Witcher, you can build a love relationship. You yourself will decide which partner to sleep with.
In addition, it will be possible to establish relations with both heterosexual, and with a homosexual or bisexual. The developers decided to go even further and said that thanks to the extensive customization settings, even a transgender could be created. So do not be surprised if you meet girls in the city whose penis is visible under their clothes.
