CD Projekt Red shows off new gameplay for Cyberpunk 2077

Shortly after delaying the game a second time, CD Projekt Red has shown off new gameplay for their open-world, action-adventure RPG, Cyberpunk 2077.

During the Night City Wire video series, CD Projekt Red gave us a first look at a new feature in the game called braindance.

With the braindance feature, you’ll be able to enter other characters’ memories and freely look around at past events and investigate them.

The braindance sections of the game will help enhance and get a better insight into the characters of Night City and the story of Cyberpunk 2077.

In addition to the new gameplay, the company also showed off a new trailer for the game.

Here’s CD Projekt Red description for the game:

Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification. You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character’s cyberware, skillset and playstyle, and explore a vast city where your choices shape the story and the world around you.

Cyberpunk 2077 is set to launch on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on November 19th with a Stadia version coming later. The game will also be playable on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 at a later date.

Owners of the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game will be able to get a free upgrade to the next-gen versions.

CD Projekt Red also announced that a new original anime series based set in the same universe is coming to Netflix.
