I’ve previously written a couple of articles warning not to overhype Cyberpunk 2077 or listing the controversies it’s suffered through, but make no mistake, it’s still set to be a brilliant game.
It’s caused some negative headlines, though most of those have been molehill sized mountains. No third player viewpoint remains a disappointment, and it certainly hasn’t earned its ‘Masterpiece’ label on Steam yet. Still though, there are a plethora of reasons to be cheerful when it comes to Cyberpunk 2077.
After bringing us one of the best RPGs of the last decade in The Witcher III, CD Projekt Red looks set to enter the 2020s in style.
The cyberpunk genre has been explored in video games before, though never quite on this scale. Cyberpunk 2077 has a lot of never before seen features, some great riffs on old ones and what looks to be a gorgeously dark open world.
The disappointment over the missing third player option likely won’t ever fade away, but the game looks strong enough to weather that, along with all the other, more teacup sized storms. Could it be the last great game of the generation?
