The time until the release of Cyberpunk 2077 seems to go by in slow motion. Video game news is therefore gratefully accepted by fans. Now the second episode of Night City Wire gave further insights into the development of Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt Red has released three new featurettes that shed light on some backgrounds and game elements.


Players have to be patient until November 19th. Then the game will appear for PS4, Xbox One and PC. There will also be a free upgrade for the launch of the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles. Bridging the waiting time is not that easy, especially in Corona times. After all, there is now around twelve minutes of new video material cyberpunk 2077.

Choose your destiny ...

CD Projekt Red reveals more about the character's backstory in the first featurette. Players can choose from three life paths: nomad, street kid or "corpo". The choice will affect the gaming experience, the developers promise. It starts with the way players first come into contact with Night City, the central setting of Cyberpunk 2077.

No less exciting is the presentation of the arsenal of weapons that players can fall back on in the course of their cyberpunk adventure. Melee weapons, tech assault rifles or sniper rifles, but also guns with penetrating power at short range, such as the cyberpunk version of a shotgun, will be available. In the video, CD Projekt Red also shows how small-scale weapons can be configured.

In this way, players can change the aiming device, make changes to the barrel or improve the trigger. If the conventional katana is too boring for you in close combat, variants such as the "Mantis Blades" built into the arm provide a more modern alternative to classic swords. Alternatively, players can simply have a rocket launcher implanted in their wrist. And if you want to do without additional weapons entirely, you can use super-strong gorilla arms.

For a bit more featurette and more marginal gameplay, check out the video on the making of the in-game music band Samurai, which brought Swedish punk rockers Refused to life. This is exciting because music will be a key part of Cyberpunk 2077's atmosphere, such as exploring Night City's nightlife.
