As 2020 hobbles along at a pace we'll remember for the rest of our lives, in gaming, things are fairing far better.
Besides the death of E3 meaning every company under the sun has started their own livestream event - giving us newsworthy items every other day - CD Projekt RED have been dishing out playable chunks of Cyberpunk 2077.
The hands-on sessions were given to select journalists and handled through cloud streaming to maintain safety for all involved. Thankfully though, we now have tons of gameplay details from the most confident showing of the game yet, revealing more than ever before.
Fascinatingly, CD Projekt RED are completely shifting genres following The Witcher 3. Where that specialised in third-person action and multi-enemy combat, here we have a deeply customisable first-person RPG, its gunplay, stealth and hacking being second to conversations and NPC interactions.
Whilst Cyberpunk 2077 has once again been delayed until November 19th - right next to the launch of the Xbox Series X and PS5 - rest assured there are plenty bar-raising features worth talking about right now.
