Franchises and new settings
Modern gaming is often best understood by looking at popular franchises. For better or worse sequels tend to sell. There’s good reasons why both players and developers tend to favor games within long running series. The developers know what players want from a game due to feedback on older releases. Players will likewise know what to expect from a sequel. But every now and then a company will break away from extremely popular franchises to try something new. One of the most recent examples is Cyberpunk 2077 PS4 from CD Projekt Red. They’re well known for putting unique twists onto familiar tropes. Their Witcher series took the typical fantasy setting and made it a uniquely beloved environment. But one of the more interesting thing about CD Projekt Red is their patience. They put a lot of love into every one of their games. And they don’t release unless they feel that they’ve been able to create something groundbreaking. This is one of the fundamental reasons why their most recent release, Witcher 3, is hailed among the greatest games of all time. It’s an extremely polished and unique take on high fantasy.
A cyberpunk setting makes a big difference
And this leads into the first thing that new players should understand about Cyberpunk 2077. The fact that it’s made by CD Projekt Red means that one can expect a similar level of care. Cyberpunk 2077 is to science fiction what the Witcher is to fantasy. It takes some familiar and beloved ideas and manages to turn it into something players can actually be surprised by. In the case of Cyberpunk 2077 this will initially take form in a future that is in many ways a warped reflection of our own. This particular fact is one of the best ways to get into the proper mindset for the game. What do you think the future is going to be like? Most people would say that they have some vague ideas but that it’s impossible to know for sure. And that is the world of Cyberpunk 2077.
Examining the fundamentals
You can come into the game expecting a few things. Any look into the future suggests ubiquitous technological advancement. The world of Cyberpunk 2077 has technology that would be amazing today available for even the least financially advantaged. In many ways that technology can seem almost magical. But this isn’t a fantasy setting. The cyberpunk rules almost always suggest a less reliable infrastructure. A player can expect to really need to work his or her way through the intrigue of corporate rulership within the Cyberpunk 2077 setting. Finally, it’s important to keep in mind that the initial release isn’t an end to development. Some features are slated for inclusion after the official release date. The most significant of these is multiplayer.
