Some of the details from the first Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire stream included:
- The Mox was revealed as a gang in the game. Based out of a brothel and set up by a former sex worker.
- Heading out of the city, the Badlands are seen as the seventh district, the wildlands inhabited by Nomads. This can only really be traversed by car.
- Adam Smasher is a big fully converted cyborg in the game that we see in the trailer.
- Ripperdocs, such as Viktor, are where you’ll go for enhancing your body. They’re more than just vendors, and can play an integral part in the story as NPCs.
- Studio Trigger and Netflix working with CD Projekt RED to create a standalone anime series, Cyberpunk 2077 – Edgerunners, set to debut in 2022.
You can watch some gameplay from the first Night City Wire here. Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 19th november, with day one support and free upgrades for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 (though meaningful enhancements will come at a later date).
Cyberpunk 2077 has gone through a string of late delays in its development process. It was first pinned down for March 2020 at last year’s E3, before CD Projekt Red announced that they were delaying the multiplayer side of the game a few months later. At the turn of 2020, the hype for the game was picking up, but in mid-January, they dropped the bombshell that they would delay the game until September so that they could polish and refine it further. That was then pushed back further to November.
The delays naturally had fans and pundits speculating about next-gen versions of the game, and CD Projekt Red initially confirmed Cyberpunk 2077 as the first third party game to confirmed for the Xbox Smart Delivery scheme. This month, that was expanded to also include free upgrade from PS4 to PS5.
