Cyberpunk 2077, the newest video game created by CD Projekt Red, who has also created The Witcher series, Is possibly one of the most anticipated games of 2020. The R-Rated game is filled to the brim with excellent next-gen graphics, interesting characters, amazing cast and great action. It is also one of my favorite games at the moment. Cyberpunk 2077 is basically GTA 5 meets the future, and I think that is a great idea.
The project itself was a long and almost frustrating experience to go through. From the game being announced in 2013 at E3, to It finally being released on December 10th, 2020. In those seven years, the game has made many changes, including story shifts, adding Keanu Reeves into the main game, and graphics being changed as well. Now, I will try my best to explain the basic story of Cyberpunk 2077.
The game takes place in, well, 2077, in Night City, one of the largest cities in the world. The city is full of rich people, robotic freaks, cyborgs, criminals and more to count. You play as V, an outsider trying to make it big in the city. The game gives you options on where to start at, such as in the deserts as a nomad, a street kid and being raised in violence and the corporate life, being a businessman and having loads of money. In each choice, you make new enemies, allies and gain a wanted or unwanted reputation.
You can upgrade your character to his or hers full abilities, such as better aim, arm enhancements such as mantis arms, which have retractable blades that come out of your arm, gorilla arms, these arm enhancements give the player enhanced strength to get past tight-locked doors and a internal hacking device that could infect a person with cybernetic compartments and you could control them.
During the game, you and an associate steal a microchip worth a hefty sum of money, which contains the soul and memories of Johnny Silverhand (Keanu Reeves), a dead rock band lead singer with violence on his mind. Throughout the game, you and Johnny make it a goal to burn Night City to the ground, at whatever the cost.
The game Cyberpunk 2077 is a must-play RPG FPS game for anyone who likes Grand Theft Auto type games or just wants to have a great gaming experience. The game is pretty long though, and still at the moment has active bugs that have not been fixed yet, but this game is still worth playing, and will give it a 9/10.
