CD Projekt RED has always been about innovation and giving the customers the best experience possible, and not only will Cyberpunk 2077 have players with all their custom look in cutscenes but, players can also move freely during these cutscenes.
In Cyberpunk 2077 you play as V and your job as a mercenary means that you will take jobs both which are within and outside the legal boundaries. With the game set in Night City which has been run over by gangs, it won’t be that difficult to find jobs.
IN a recent interview, the developers behind Cyberpunk 2077 said, “In terms of content, maybe it’s about a third of the game. We’re doing some specific things. For Cyberpunk, for the narrative part, for the cinematic part, there is something new called a Scene System.
It’s like our dialogue and cinematic system that occurs within the context of the gameplay of the game. It’s really important because one of the pillars of the development of the project is the idea of full immersion and this new Scene System is all about full immersion.
You don’t break into a letterbox formula and see this cutscene taking place, you’re actually in the cutscene and you can control the character or the camera, there are different levels of control depending on the cutscene.
It’s fully immersive; it doesn’t take you out of the experience at all. So we’re doing that and also other things too.”
This new immersive cutscene feature will have players invest themselves in the game more, rather than taking a back seat and watching a movie. This is how cutscenes have worked until now but looking videogames being the form of entertainment where people get to control their character makes more sense for this to be included in the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 is developed by CD Projekt RED and is scheduled to release on 16 April 2020 for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
