One of the most talked about games at E3 2018 was Cyberpunk 2077. The game has an interesting storyline and combines elements of RPG and FPS, with a certain dose of boldness seen in GTA
Five years after his first revelation, Cyberpunk 2077 showed up again, this time in E3 2018, during the Microsoft. As expected, success was resounding. The Polish game CD Projekt RED (responsible for The Witcher), based on the table RPG Cyberpunk 2020, released in 1988, had the most viewed trailer among all the titles announced during the E3 this year.
The game that uses the perspective of the first person puts the player in the skin of a futuristic mercenary called V in a society formed by people with cybernetic implants. The game’s customization system will allow to determine the genre, appearance and some other characteristics that will directly impact the gameplay
According Andrew Webster of The Verge, who had the opportunity to play a demo of Cyberpunk 2077, in addition to the incredibly deep RPG elements, the game combines this structure with FPS elements. In addition, it has an open and dynamic world that is prepared for chaos in style GTA.
The decision to adopt the first-person game mode divided opinions. Peter Gelencser , the head of the game’s design level, explained that this view has been adopted so that you can see things up close and thus allow visceral interaction.
The third person works well in games like ‘The Witcher‘when you have a lot of mechanisms and movements around you. But when they happen to you, they emanate from you and even manifest within you, the first-person point of view is the right decision to make, especially because of the implants ”says Gelencser.
