“Join us on Monday, August 10 at 6PM CEST, at Twitch for episode 2 of Night City Wire,” the tweet reads. “This time we’ll share details about lifepaths, show you the types of weapons you will be using in the game, and discuss Refused’s transformation into Samurai.”
Episode 2 Night City Wire will be streamed on August 10th at 6 PM CEST, on CD Projekt Red’s official Twitch channel. We expect the polish developer to show use some new gameplay, and also reveal more about the game’s main protagonist ‘V’. CD Projekt Red recently announced that Cyberpunk 2077’s release has been delayed to 19 November 2020. The game is ready, but bug testing is taking longer than initially expected.
Like John has mentioned before, Cyberpunk 2077 is an RPG that will mainly feature first-person cut-scenes. While there will be some rare third-person cut-scenes, all of the conversations will be in first-person perspective. Moreover, CD Projekt RED has confirmed that it will add a multiplayer mode via a post-launch update.
The game will be also using real-time ray tracing and DLSS 2.0, and promises to be a tech showcase. For instance, the game will have advanced shadow effects from long range shadows and contact shadows, to new Houdini physics simulations for particle effects, fluids, cloth, and more. Now while we don’t know whether these ray tracing effects will be available at launch, we do know that the game will appear on NVIDIA’s streaming service, GeForce Now, at launch day.
Cyberpunk 2077 will release on November 19th.
