Cyberpunk 2077 – Deep Dive Video


Welcome to the Cyberpunk 2077 – 2019 Deep Dive Video In last year’s gameplay reveal, we showed you our vision for the world of Cyberpunk 2077, its quests and visual design. This year, we’d like to give you a peek at some of the playstyles you’ll be able to adopt as your character progresses through the story. You’re about to see sequences embodying two distinct approaches to playing Cyberpunk. We’ll show you a ‘strong solo’ build, that is, a character who focuses on employing blunt force and taking instant action, and a ‘netrunner build’ and a ‘netrunner build’ — a playstyle taking frequent advantage of stealth tactics, hacking and battlefield control achieved using malicious software. Additionally, you’ll learn more about Pacifica, one of the game’s districts, two gangs – the ‘Animals’ and the ‘VooDoo Boys’, and you’ll see glimpses of Johnny Silverhand the digital construct who haunts our main character, V. A word of caution: Given that the video covers a section of the game deep into the main storyline, we have edited the footage to contain as few spoilers as possible. Be aware that the gameplay as presented does reveal characters and locations you’ll see while playing the game’s main story arc. So watch at your own discretion. In this video, you’ll experience a segment of a quest from the middle of the game. We’re currently in Pacifica, one of Night City’s 6 unique districts. It was designed to be a tourist hotspot within the city. As you can see, this didn’t pan out. When uncertainty struck the global economy, investors pulled their funding, leaving most establishments unfinished. It’s one of those places where expectations and reality collided, resulting in a heap of disappointment. Ongoing gang wars plague this part of the city. Outsiders don’t come here if they don’t have to. Even by Night City’s standards, it’s dangerous to those unfamiliar with it. Taking a casual stroll here would not be a good idea. A fast motorbike or armor-plated car would be the safer option. But places like this have their advantages. If you’re in need of rare goods or illegal cyberware, Pacifica’s bustling local markets are a good place to start your search. The Grand Imperial Mall is a whole other story. It was one of the last developments in Pacifica to lose its funding. Until recently it stood vacant, but now a gang called the Animals has moved in for reasons unknown. And that’s what we need to learn in order to earn the trust of the Voodoo Boys, the Animals’ rivals. Of the many gangs in Cyberpunk 2077, the Voodoo Boys are the most skilled at using the net. This mysterious gang of highly skilled netrunners has close ties to the local Haitian community. Haitians settled in Pacifica in the 2060s after natural disasters struck their island and forced them to emigrate en masse. The Voodoo Boys gang formed around this same time, though on a smaller scale. Now the gang effectively rules Pacifica. The Voodoo Boys don’t usually work with outsiders. Lucky for us, it seems they’re prepared to make an exception this time. Still, to earn their trust, we need to prove our worth. Placide, one of the Voodoo Boys’ higher-ups, has offered us a mission. We need to infiltrate the Grand Imperial Mall, currently occupied by the Voodoo Boys deadlyenemy – a gang called the Animals. The Animals are not your normal gang. Their presence in Pacifica is suspicious. They value might above all else and wear melee-combat implants and wear melee-combat implants to raise their prowess in combat. Their beverage of choice is “Juice,” a potent strength-and-speed enhancing concoction. As sought-after bouncers, they’re usually dispersed throughout town. As skilled street-level business types, they’ve cornered the market in illegal substances and underground, live-or-die prize fights. When they converge in one spot, it’s for something big. It’s then they appoint the fastest and strongest among them as their ad hoc leader. In this case, it’s a woman named Sasquatch. This is the tech Placide was talking about. It seems non-standard for the Animals. And this is where we come in. Getting to the van won’t be easy, but we’re more than qualified for the job, which we can complete in one of many ways. The character creation in Cyberpunk 2077 is the kind you’d expect from a full-fledged RPG. You start by choosing your past, Important because this unlocks special options at important story junctures. You also fully customize your character using a deep customization system that spans not only your look and style, but also your abilities. Cyberpunk 2077 does not feature fixed classes. Instead, it has a fluid class system that allows players to mix and match a wide range of abilities to suit their playstyles. You can create a strong solo character, a skilled netrunner or any other hybrid class you can imagine. Let’s see how a Solo playstyle in Cyberpunk 2077 might work. Solos prefer a direct approach. They use guns and might to get things done. So, let’s wreak some havoc! With our enhanced strength we can strip this turret of its weapon to give the Animals a taste of their own medicine. This is how a player investing in Solo abilities might live out their terminator power fantasy. Enhanced strength lets us force open doors, strip turrets or grab enemies to use as human shields. We also gain access to powerful melee combat cyberware. So even someone as fast and strong as Sasquatch, the leader of this group of Animals, is not impossible to beat for a Solo. But Sasquatch has a different gameplan – she’s out to jack in and hack us. Let’s see how this plays out. It’s our choice if we want to finish her off or spare her. Your Cyberpunk, your rules. If you’d rather sneak around, hide and strike from the shadows, no problem. Just develop your netrunning skills to get around obstacles or hack into enemy tech to have it do the dirty work for you. Netrunning abilities mean hacking skills that let us use our Cyberdeck to breach Access Points. For this we fill the buffer of our Cyberdeck with a string of instructions represented by these letters and numbers. Matching the instructions for basic access grants us control of the devices connected to this network. The more instructions we match, the more control we gain over elements in this network. We can hack our way through in numerous ways. A quick-hack may grant us control of the security camera. Another one should let us to tweak the difficulty of the training-bot to create a distraction. With our nanowire, we can even hack this guy’s implants from a distance. In this world, almost everything is connected to a local network. And that means it can be hacked. Which brings us back to cyberspace. You don’t get to do anything on the net unnoticed. There’s always someone watching. It could be corpos, or even worse, it could be NetWatch. And that is exactly the case here. NetWatch and the Voodoo Boys are like fire and ice. The first of these wants to maintain the old order and protect people from AI anarchy originating from beyond the Blackwall. The Voodoo Boyswant to establish contact with the free AIs. They believe this will enable their boundless expansion in the net And grant them the upper hand over NetWatch. NetWatch sees this as the end of the world.
Both are right. How you deal with the NetWatch agent is entirely up to you. Do we side with the gang? Choosing to be on NetWatch’s bad side is never wise. But can we really trust the Voodoo Boys? As you can see, we have many possible options, but in each case we take a risk. That didn’t work out well. In the world of Cyberpunk, few things go as planned. And that was just a glimpse of how complex the branching storyline in Cyberpunk 2077 can get. Every decision you make will have consequences. Your choices will shape how the world reacts to you and affect your relationships with those around you. One of those relationships is special. Ever heard of Johnny Silverhand? A rebel Rockerboy who will be your companion throughout your adventure in Night City? Like everyone in Cyberpunk 2077, he has his own agenda. You’ll decide if he’ll be your ally… or your enemy. And that chip in your head, the one thanks to which Johnny lives inside your mind? That’s a story for another time…

  1. ИМПЛАНТЫ… В Crysis просто костюм давал нереальную мощь, а в CYBERPUNK 2077 даже превратив себя в киборга ты можешь лишь точнее стрелять или взламывать?!… Ну и бред!!!

  2. After the game comes out, someone could create a chart with statistics about the choices of the players in the game and how they build their characters. See what's going on with the world

  3. Ivan Ladron de Guevara

    i'm beggining to wonder if there will be night at all in outside scenarios, i know they want to experience with daylight cyberpunk, and thats ok, but without night can't be cyberpunk at all, and now i cant remember seeing night spaces footage

  4. Can't wait to get a good gaming PC and play this along with The Witcher 3 (played The Witcher 2 on Xbox 360 and it was great, but the 360 would probably give me a red ring if I tried to run this lmao).

  5. You Know Those Dudes?

    This is Judge Dredd, RoboCop, Blade Runner, Johnny Mnemonic and Ghost in a Shell all roles into one!
    You'd have to be a dumbass not to want to get this game.

  6. I'm very excited for this but I'm not going to preorder or anything cause it could be Anthem v2 even though it isn't EA I'd still wait for a beta or after it drops.

  7. Deus Ex… all over again, but probably going to be sub-par, given all the hype this has received.. plus the trend of including movie stars in shit games continuing. It'll be buggy as hell, because all the money they SHOULD'VE payed the devs to debug their product, will be spent on Keanu Reeves' inclusion. crosses fingers for the best tho

  8. I love how they made the woman the strong type and the guy the hacking type for this gameplay. Wanna know why? Cause you annoying ass feminists would bitch about how the female can't be strong like the male character and boycott this shit lol

  9. I hope at 4K it won't look as pixelated and blurry as the video looks at 4K 😀
    SLI support, plz! Witcher 3 plays excellently at 5K res Ultra on 2080Ti SLI, so I'd LOVE to see SLI supported here too 🙂

  10. This is my most anticipated game since God of War, but I cant help but feel that the whole Johnny Silverhand thing is only about "Hey look, its fucking Keanu Reeves!". He's been teased a couple times now and CDPR has been hyping the shit out of him, yet they havent given ANY meaningful information on him.

  11. Mmm… it is not giving me the world from Blade Runner or Neuromancer that I expected… i will not play this game… also why numbers in puzzles? I would like a more aggressive approach and adrenaline… boring

  12. Hmm seems a bit downgraded in terms of graphics compared to the earlier gameplays, there are some bits where the color seems bland too (as if you turned up the brightness too high). I also heard that customization becomes useless now since most cut-scenes are first person only. The game might still turn out good and theres still time for these changes & improvement but I guess we will see. All the best CDPR, am looking forward to it.

  13. Okay, after all the crap you got at E3 over this thanks to our buddies at Rock, Paper, Shitheads; I had to see this for myself, spoilers be damned. And having watched it at least twice now… well talk about much ado about nothing. No offense, this was a good tease but it naturally lacked some of the initial "wow" the first gameplay trailer had. Both the Solo and the Netrunner paths look like fun, curious how a "Techie" path would play.

    And as for the controversy… again talk about much ado about nothing. Goes to show that perspective and context is everything (to say nothing about paying attention to details.) "V was offensive to the Voodoo Boys", no, V was rude to his/her handler, a character who clearly decided he didn't like you before you even walked in. Doesn't make it less rude but more understandable then V randomly deciding to be an ass (though any proper RPG should have the option to be a dick if the player is willing to deal with the consequences that follow.) "The Animals are a black ethnic gang." Their leader is a white woman and we clearly see at least one non-black member of the gang. "The white man in the suit told you the Voodoo Boys would betray you and he was right." First rule of the cyberpunk genre; never trust a suit, never trust a corporate, never trust a g-man, NEVER trust authority figures in general. Authority is bad, people in power are usually corrupt and wouldn't think twice about sowing dissent to make the plebs fight each other. The Netwatch goon turned out to be telling the truth but you had no way of knowing that. He could have very easily been lying to try and get you and the Voodoo Boys to fight each other.

  14. Отвратительная демонстрация, сумбурная и невнятная, а геймплейные куски выглядят хуже, чем на прошлогодней демонстрации.

  15. graphics downgrade
    why make deep customization character sistem if there are no third view?
    why stealth approach result killing nps(same as power), where is non lethal playthrough?
    e3 2018 demo was way beter
    and i wouldnt supprise if some part of resourses for singlplayer producrion already using for multiplayer creation

  16. People are expecting way too much from this game. I wouldn't even be surprised if they don't get what they hoped for. At that point, the game would never even get a "good" statement from users who expected this to be something on witcher level even if the game itself was good. People should stop having such absurd level of expectations because this never ever leads to good criticism or even a good game community in general.

    I do not say that the game will be bad, I am all in for a good game, but heck the level of expectation everyone is having now is just ludicrous.

  17. I'm choosing corporate on cyberpunk 2077 so I can work with stout and hopefully have romance with her because she is so hot and beautiful ❤. My character would be black Male v with afro, blue light eyes color, metal surfaces wiring, beard, with street clothes, and high tops.blade and nanowire but he would be strong solo.🌞☝️

  18. アトレツムスSariel

    Nowadays a game without multiplayer is not a game … it is important to be able to measure yourself with the rest.
