The long awaited game “Cyberpunk™ “ has finally been released after several years of being in production.
The developers of the “CD Projekt™” game originally aired a trailer in 2013 which got fans excited. However, the first hint of a launch would be announced at gaming convention E3 in 2018, presented by one of the starring characters, Keanu Reeves.
This promise of a brand new role playing game was then delayed until April of 2019, before production was pushed to April of 2020, until the Covid-19 pandemic hit and delayed it until December.
The game was not only delayed because of the pandemic, but also because the developers have designed Cyberpunk™ to be the biggest game of the year. Along with the biggest game of the year, the developers also wanted their staff to be able to function in life, and made sure they didn’t kill themselves working on this project. The developers were also delayed because they had to test and make sure the game worked across all the performing consoles. The consoles that have been chosen to release the game are Google Stadia, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Microsoft Windows.
“Cyberpunk™” is also standing apart from other games with its storytelling, style and stunning graphics. The developers made this game special by attempting to give the player a wide variety of options for gameplay.
There are several different endings that all have an impact on how the player plays the game. The game is set up to cater to the different styles of play-throughs, from the stealthy and slick talkers, to the blazing guns type. Players can even go through the entire game without harming an NPC. The multiple endings can be affected by almost any detail. It is also set to have more than 100 hours of gameplay and can take more than one play-through to find the other endings.
Plans are to release online versions of the game so that players can interact with friends all around the world. Adam Kaciński, the CEO of CD Projekt™, has stated, “We think about it as a standalone product. Obviously, it’s not entirely standalone, as it comes from the universe of Cyberpunk and is very much related to the concept of single-player Cyberpunk we came up with. But from our perspective, it’s another independent production and independent team of people working on it.”
The online version of the game is still in production, and CD Projekt™ has confirmed the online version will not be ready for release until after 2021.
“It will be a story-based RPG experience with amazing single-player play-throughs, but we’re going to add multiplayer features,” says managing director, Adam Badowski.
All in all, this is most literally the game of the future, and it has been very well made with the needs of the players in mind. With hours of content, a compelling story, and a very wide range of customization options, this game will entertain the masses. This long awaited game is currently out on the market and available to be bought and enjoyed by consumers.
