What we have so far from the action RPG Cyberpunk 2077 looks very action-packed, almost like a shooter. That is certainly due to the ego perspective. But you can expect a really deep role-playing game, as the developers at CD Projekt Red assure you.
A role play through and through
You can from Cyberpunk 2077 (buy now for € 58.19) so expect a real RPG. Miles Tost, Senior Level Designer at the game, explains, "I don't know, there are a lot, there are tons of guns. How I would sum this up is … I think people tend to forget about cyberpunk 2077 is primarily an RPG, isn't it? So the customization and choice of gear, choice of skills you have, talents, appearance of character, the way you choose dialogue, that is the pivotal phase of the experience, I think some people watch this game and think, "Oh man, this is first-person and has guns! It's a shooter! "And that's a very superficial assessment. I think in many ways it's a much, much deeper RPG experience than The Witcher 3."
One thing that might get in the way of that, though, is the game world itself. In The Witcher 3 it was possible to enter almost every building. Night City in Cyberpunk 2077 is so huge that an apartment cannot wait for you behind every door. The developers are aware of this and want to provide a context for closed doors as often as there is. Miles Tost says: "We can't put a doorman in front of every door in the world. But in areas that we think are super obvious, for example if there is an area in the main quest that cannot be entered, we try this Context to add something extra there. "
He goes on to say, "But the number of doors we have in Cyberpunk 2077 will completely eclipse the number of doors we have in The Witcher 3. At one point in The Witcher 3's development, I did counted the number of doors we have. We have about 2,500 doors for this game. Of course, in a game like this, there are many more doors in the world of cyberpunks compared to The Witcher 3. "
So we will experience a believable game world in Cyberpunk 2077 despite some locked doors when the RPG comes out on November 19th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
