CD Projekt RED (The Witcher, The Witcher 2) has released the first teaser for their new game in development, titled Cyberpunk 2077, and you can watch it using the player below (the teaser features the song “Bullets” by Archive)! The developers want the final game to look like this when it’s released.
Cyberpunk 2077 is an ambitious RPG for mature audience, set in the corrupt and tech-advanced world of the year 2077 and is being developed by CD Projekt RED in association with the Cyberpunk Pen & Paper system author, Mike Pondsmith.
The teaser shows how the Psycho Squad might acquire a new member. The Psycho Squad specializes in combating “psychos” — individuals who overuse implants and substances that boost or otherwise alter the human body.
There comes a point when they overdose on these innovations, and their bodies start to rebel against their biological body parts as well as all things organic around them. Simply put, they start killing people, who they now derisively call “meatbags.”
When a psycho goes on the rampage, strange things can happen. There’s carnage, and the psycho might be taken down by regular police, but they’re not always able to get the job done.
When things spin out of control, they call in MAX-TAC (Maximum Force Tactical Division), popularly called the Psycho Squad.
CD Projekt RED is targeting a 2015 release date for the game. Check out more info at Cyberpunk.net. What do you think about the teaser?
