1. Based on the dark version of the future
As the name suggests, Cyberpunk 2077 is based on the dark version of the future where players are thrown into a world where advanced computer technologies have become both the salvation and the curse of humanity. Cyberpunk 2077 provides freedom of action and diversity in gameplay thanks to the sandbox nature of the game and mechanics.
2. Detailed character customization
It is an open world, role-playing game where the players can customize their own character chosen from different classes – Street kid, Corporate, etc. Types of equipment and devices are provided based on the character type you choose or customize.
With character customization you also need to define the backstory of the character, what you choose here will unlock different possibilities later in the game along with the dialogues. You will get extra dialogue option depending on the backstory and previous encounters with the character.
3. It is based on Night City
Cyberpunk 2077 is based on Night City Which is an American megacity in the Free State of California, controlled by corporations and unassailed by the laws of both country and state. Gameplay pumps adrenaline through player’s veins with the celebrated Cyberpunk spirit — rebellion, style, edge, uncertainty.
4. Pacifica – One of the 6 districts
Cyberpunk 2077 consists of 6 district. One of which is also shown in the demo, called as Pacifica which was originally a fun place but after its investors moving their back, the place is now rusty and rotten with criminals and gangs. You can also see abandoned buildings, themepark in the gameplay. Also, the world will have a dynamic day and night lighting which is pretty cool.
Hacking, this is one of the interesting things that excite me about Cyberpunk 2077. You can hack into the turrets and surrounding objects to turn them against the enemies. Wait there is more,
- Hack into enemies brain to control them and even make them attack their own teammates
- You can also hack doors, terminals, trains, etc
- Also, soda machines
- Basically everything that have a wire or plug
Cyberspace is somewhat similar to matrix and in Cyberpunk 2077 players will be able to get into it. Alt Cunningham from the Cyberpunk universe will also have to role to play. Infact, she is the first character to completely digitize herself by uploading her consciousness into cyberspace.
7. Destructible environment
This is something I always wanted in GTA games. However, we have a rough idea that environment in Cyberpunk 2077 world will have some extent of destructibility. We don’t know how much we can destroy a building or light poles or even will they be repaired afterwards.
8. Keanu Reeves as Johnny Silverhand
For those who were in isolation for some time, Keanu Reeves is also featuring in this game. Infact, he is playing a major role of Johnny Silverhand in Cyberpunk 2077 which by rumours have the most number of dialogues. Appearance of Keanu Reeves is definitely going to turn things in CD Projekt’s side.
9. Cyberpunk 2077 collector’s edition is a good deal
If you are ready to spend some extra bucks for Cyberpunk 2077 collector’s edition then you will end up some cool and usefull stuffs along with the game. Which includes things like…
- Map of Night city
- A world compendium
- Embroidered Patches
- Steelbook case
- Quadra V-tech metal keychain for the car in the trailer
- Survival guide
- A 10 inch statuette of V
These are pretty much the important things to know about Cyberpunk 2077. However, there are other things as well that we didn’t mention in this above list like enhanced melee combat, distinct conversations with the NPC’s, Vodoo gang, and lot more. No doubt, Cyberpunk 2077 is looking strong for Game Of The Year 2020.
