Ever since Cyberpunk 2077 was announced and shown to select members of the press at E3 this year, people have been chomping at the bits to see some actual gameplay footage. CD Projekt Red released several new screenshots last week but today they’ve started streaming 48 minutes of actual gameplay on Twitch.
We’ve embedded the live stream and the VOD above, so enjoy and try not to drool too much!
“What we’re releasing today was recorded from a game deep in development.” – says Adam Badowski, Cyberpunk 2077 Game Director and CD PROJEKT RED Head of Studio. “Since many of the assets and mechanics in the current version of Cyberpunk 2077 are most likely to be modified, we initially decided to show this gameplay only to media. Elements like gunplay (both in terms of visuals and how RPG stats influence it), netrunning, car physics, or the game’s UI – everything’s pretty much still in the playtest phase and we felt uneasy about publicly committing to any particular design. Animation glitches, work-in-progress character facial expressions, early versions of locations – all this made us hesitant to release what you’re about to see.”
“However, we are also well aware that many of you want to see what the media saw.” – adds Badowski. “Although this is probably not the same game you’ll see on your screen when we launch, we still decided to share this 48-minute video with you. This is how Cyberpunk 2077 looks today. Let us know what you think!”
