Cyberpunk 2077 – Deep Dive Video

Welcome to the Cyberpunk 2077 – 2019 Deep Dive Video In last year’s gameplay reveal, we showed you our vision for the world of Cyberpunk 2077, its quests and visual design. This year, we’d like to give you a peek at some of the playstyles you’ll be able to adopt as your character progresses through the story. You’re about to see sequences embodying two distinct approaches to playing Cyberpunk. We’ll show you a ‘strong solo’ build, that is, a character who focuses on employing blunt force and taking instant action, and a ‘netrunner build’ and a ‘netrunner build’ — a playstyle taking frequent advantage of stealth tactics, hacking and battlefield control achieved using malicious software. Additionally, you’ll learn more about Pacifica, one of the game’s districts, two gangs – the ‘Animals’ and the ‘VooDoo Boys’, and you’ll see glimpses of Johnny Silverhand the digital construct who haunts our main character, V. A word of caution: Given that the video covers a section of the game deep into the main storyline, we have edited the footage to contain as few spoilers as possible. Be aware that the gameplay as presented does reveal characters and locations you’ll see while playing the game’s main story arc. So watch at your own discretion. In this video, you’ll experience a segment of a quest from the middle of the game. We’re currently in Pacifica, one of Night City’s 6 unique districts. It was designed to be a tourist hotspot within the city. As you can see, this didn’t pan out. When uncertainty struck the global economy, investors pulled their funding, leaving most establishments unfinished. It’s one of those places where expectations and reality collided, resulting in a heap of disappointment. Ongoing gang wars plague this part of the city. Outsiders don’t come here if they don’t have to. Even by Night City’s standards, it’s dangerous to those unfamiliar with it. Taking a casual stroll here would not be a good idea. A fast motorbike or armor-plated car would be the safer option. But places like this have their advantages. If you’re in need of rare goods or illegal cyberware, Pacifica’s bustling local markets are a good place to start your search. The Grand Imperial Mall is a whole other story. It was one of the last developments in Pacifica to lose its funding. Until recently it stood vacant, but now a gang called the Animals has moved in for reasons unknown. And that’s what we need to learn in order to earn the trust of the Voodoo Boys, the Animals’ rivals. Of the many gangs in Cyberpunk 2077, the Voodoo Boys are the most skilled at using the net. This mysterious gang of highly skilled netrunners has close ties to the local Haitian community. Haitians settled in Pacifica in the 2060s after natural disasters struck their island and forced them to emigrate en masse. The Voodoo Boys gang formed around this same time, though on a smaller scale. Now the gang effectively rules Pacifica. The Voodoo Boys don’t usually work with outsiders. Lucky for us, it seems they’re prepared to make an exception this time. Still, to earn their trust, we need to prove our worth. Placide, one of the Voodoo Boys’ higher-ups, has offered us a mission. We need to infiltrate the Grand Imperial Mall, currently occupied by the Voodoo Boys deadlyenemy – a gang called the Animals. The Animals are not your normal gang. Their presence in Pacifica is suspicious. They value might above all else and wear melee-combat implants and wear melee-combat implants to raise their prowess in combat. Their beverage of choice is “Juice,” a potent strength-and-speed enhancing concoction. As sought-after bouncers, they’re usually dispersed throughout town. As skilled street-level business types, they’ve cornered the market in illegal substances and underground, live-or-die prize fights. When they converge in one spot, it’s for something big. It’s then they appoint the fastest and strongest among them as their ad hoc leader. In this case, it’s a woman named Sasquatch. This is the tech Placide was talking about. It seems non-standard for the Animals. And this is where we come in. Getting to the van won’t be easy, but we’re more than qualified for the job, which we can complete in one of many ways. The character creation in Cyberpunk 2077 is the kind you’d expect from a full-fledged RPG. You start by choosing your past, Important because this unlocks special options at important story junctures. You also fully customize your character using a deep customization system that spans not only your look and style, but also your abilities. Cyberpunk 2077 does not feature fixed classes. Instead, it has a fluid class system that allows players to mix and match a wide range of abilities to suit their playstyles. You can create a strong solo character, a skilled netrunner or any other hybrid class you can imagine. Let’s see how a Solo playstyle in Cyberpunk 2077 might work. Solos prefer a direct approach. They use guns and might to get things done. So, let’s wreak some havoc! With our enhanced strength we can strip this turret of its weapon to give the Animals a taste of their own medicine. This is how a player investing in Solo abilities might live out their terminator power fantasy. Enhanced strength lets us force open doors, strip turrets or grab enemies to use as human shields. We also gain access to powerful melee combat cyberware. So even someone as fast and strong as Sasquatch, the leader of this group of Animals, is not impossible to beat for a Solo. But Sasquatch has a different gameplan – she’s out to jack in and hack us. Let’s see how this plays out. It’s our choice if we want to finish her off or spare her. Your Cyberpunk, your rules. If you’d rather sneak around, hide and strike from the shadows, no problem. Just develop your netrunning skills to get around obstacles or hack into enemy tech to have it do the dirty work for you. Netrunning abilities mean hacking skills that let us use our Cyberdeck to breach Access Points. For this we fill the buffer of our Cyberdeck with a string of instructions represented by these letters and numbers. Matching the instructions for basic access grants us control of the devices connected to this network. The more instructions we match, the more control we gain over elements in this network. We can hack our way through in numerous ways. A quick-hack may grant us control of the security camera. Another one should let us to tweak the difficulty of the training-bot to create a distraction. With our nanowire, we can even hack this guy’s implants from a distance. In this world, almost everything is connected to a local network. And that means it can be hacked. Which brings us back to cyberspace. You don’t get to do anything on the net unnoticed. There’s always someone watching. It could be corpos, or even worse, it could be NetWatch. And that is exactly the case here. NetWatch and the Voodoo Boys are like fire and ice. The first of these wants to maintain the old order and protect people from AI anarchy originating from beyond the Blackwall. The Voodoo Boyswant to establish contact with the free AIs. They believe this will enable their boundless expansion in the net And grant them the upper hand over NetWatch. NetWatch sees this as the end of the world.
Both are right. How you deal with the NetWatch agent is entirely up to you. Do we side with the gang? Choosing to be on NetWatch’s bad side is never wise. But can we really trust the Voodoo Boys? As you can see, we have many possible options, but in each case we take a risk. That didn’t work out well. In the world of Cyberpunk, few things go as planned. And that was just a glimpse of how complex the branching storyline in Cyberpunk 2077 can get. Every decision you make will have consequences. Your choices will shape how the world reacts to you and affect your relationships with those around you. One of those relationships is special. Ever heard of Johnny Silverhand? A rebel Rockerboy who will be your companion throughout your adventure in Night City? Like everyone in Cyberpunk 2077, he has his own agenda. You’ll decide if he’ll be your ally… or your enemy. And that chip in your head, the one thanks to which Johnny lives inside your mind? That’s a story for another time…

  1. I am going to kill every single person in cyberpunk. I will be the plague, the monster hidden in the dark, the boogieman. No one is safe… maybe except Keanu. He will be last.

  2. Ngl, I might lose a lot of my youth to this game if what is shown/promised is delivered. Better get an IV nutrition drip ready

  3. Is the underwear that you put on characters removable ,or did you just pull a fallout on us please let me know if you can ty

  4. I love how everyone is talking about this game like they have played it. Theres still a potential for this to be a shitty buggy mess especially considering everything in here is AI driven, so the AI and acting need to be top notch like the Witcher 3 to make this game decent.

  5. CDPR – PLEASE give us the required system specs to run this game so we can prep and buy a new video card if needed. It's between a 1070/1660 ti and a 1080 ti/2080 Super. But that is a massive jump in cost.

  6. After sitting down and watching the uncut version at EGX that someone was playing at the time, I lost my shit… heads up, if you dont have trust issues with people… this game will give you them for sure

  7. I hope the ending for this game isn't based off of how many people you did or didn't kill, always hate that mechanic, makes it less fun

  8. Imagine one of the endings would be like in Fight Club movie, where Johnny and V are watching city burning and there is ''where is my mind'' song in the background

  9. Really shouldn't show agame off if it's not the final look of the game. Probably won't even be fully ready for releasing in April

  10. this is the only game EVER, that I've pre-ordered as soon as it was possible. I'd trust CDPR with my soul and first born.

  11. At first I'm gonna be a cold blooded bastard in this game. I'll play it in every style. From a murdering bastard without remorse to a merciful guy who just wants to get his job done.

  12. Wow graphics is a massive downgrade from what we have seen so far. Also this game is too realistic, all white people are gone. I am from London, why would I relive dystopian reality in the game also?

  13. Запустил розыгрыш на эту игру!
    Подробности тут:

    Участвуйте 😉

  14. Prime example of a game that sets the bar of expectations so damn high, that it can only fail… people will find dozens of things where they can whine and complain about. e.g. Promising absolute freedom in a game will call hundreds of weird people complaining about not being able to just "play house", or run a cyber brothel, or whatever…

    I'm super stoked about this, but I don't really expect complete freedom. That's kinda naive.

  15. I sucked it up and bought a 2080 ti because CDPR haven't announced system requirements….. I love being frugal but I can't afford to wait until GPU's are regular price again when CP 2077 drops in April to upgrade.
