The PlayStation 4 has already been confirmed by CD Projekt RED to be receiving the upcoming open-world title, “Cyberpunk 2077, and for those who are wondering what the system’s engine will look like, gaze no further than the game’s trailer.
According to a report from GameChup yesterday, “Cyberpunk 2077’s” senior quest designer Łukasz Szczepankowski said the studio is currently working on making their game engine much like the CGI one that was seen in the game’s teaser trailer.
“Of course the teaser trailer is a CGI movie, but indeed this is our starting point and we are targeting graphics of that quality, we will hopefully be able to utilize the hardware effectively,” Szczepankowski said.
It would be something to see if the studio could actually get their new RED Engine to look like the CGI work we all saw in that initial trailer.
A few weeks ago, major story details regarding the upcoming title were released from CD Projekt RED.
The story takes players into the future where they will play the role of a man who is trying to lift himself up from the grim fate he currently faces.
“In ‘Cyberpunk 2077,’ the player will be thrown into a dark future. The metropolis of Night City is a stage set to tell the tale of one individual, raised on the streets, who tries to lift himself up from the gutter and find a way to survive amongst boostergangs and megacorporations in a city of filth and sin.
“Drugs, violence, poverty and exclusion haven’t disappeared by 2077, as people stayed they were for centuries – greedy, closed-minded and weak. But not only ghosts of the past trouble mankind, but new issues have appeared.
“Psychos go on rampages and the streets are filled with junkies addicted to a new form of entertainment – the braindance, a cheap way to experience the emotions and stimuli of someone else, someone living a more exciting life.”
Players will be able to stream a braindance into their own minds using the BD player, which will help the player understand a person’s experiences.
The range of these particular themes can be from any sort of experience, and do not seem they’ll disappoint players.
“The range of themes of these recordings varies from simple braindances made by megacorporations, which e.g. allow the viewer to feel the full experience of an explorer with all its thrills, sweats, smells, views, sounds and the real feeling of curiosity that pushes men to go beyond the horizon against fear and physical weakness.
“But there are also more controversial sides of braindance, because some recordings are created illegally in the underground. Entering the mind of a serial killer means not only seeing the monstrosity he performs, but also living his lust to kill and fulfillment.”
Streets in “Cyberpunk 2077” will be filled with these braindances as people cannot resist being part of this new trendy fad happening within Night City.
“This is the world of 2077. The gap between high and low is bigger than ever. Drugs, violence, braindance, psychos on the loose.
“Will you be able to function in this defunct society or end up a BD-junky with nothing left, set aside like garbage – still living someone’s else life –not aware of what’s going on around you? Whether you like it or not – this is the age of braindance decadence; this is Cyberpunk 2077.”
