After three consecutive successful launches from The Witcher series, now CD Projekt RED wants to forge ahead with Cyberpunk 2077 in a completely different area but still in the same genre. CD Projekt RED knows RPG better than anything and tries to focus on the genre as much as it can to produce revolutionary ideas and creative ways of play, but on the other hand the developer should deliver high-level capabilities in the elements that are coming from other genres specially shooting features, which is going to provide extensive options for the players, according to the studio.
In an interview with AreaJugones, quest director of the game Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz clarified that Cyberpunk 2077 is an RPG game and this what the most of elements within the game are taking from, but there are some other features like shooting that has come from other genres and the studio tries to do the best work possible in those area too. He said:
I would like to make a reference to one of the previous questions and that is that our game is mainly an RPG, then the combat in the first person is something added to this genre. In this way, the gameplay in Cyberpunk offers a variety of ways to complete the missions and I think this is the biggest difference because it not only matters with the shooter side, but also how to incorporate this aspect in your way of playing through the title. And we have a good amount of mechanics that are based on this concept which we have not yet shown, so stay tuned.
In addition to this we are working on bringing good and fun combat mechanics and I think we have a wide range of weapons that will make our game stand out. I do not know if you remember in the previous demo that there were smart rifles and this is something that I have not seen much in the current FPS. Also, I think that in terms of gameplay we have some ideas and things that are not ready yet and that we are trying to implement, because they will be very good.
As Tomaszkiewicz has mentioned, the combats of the game covers a wide variety of weapons and it’s not limited to the guns, though there are numerous creative types of guns that you will utilize against your enemies during gameplay. On the other hand, Cyberpunk 2077 features different abilities that allow you to go through missions in distinct ways in order to provide a high level of freedom in playing your own experience based on what type of gameplay you prefer.
Cyberpunk 2077 hasn’t received any exact release date yet, but some rumors claim it will be launched on November 28. The game will have an important show at E3 2019 which will probably unveil its release date too.
