Don’t get your hopes up for Cyberpunk 2077 in 2019

Cyberpunk 2077, the chrome'n'killing follow-up to The Witcher 3, was all the talk of E3, but one thing the developers didn't do was make free with a release date. It's been six long years since the game was announced, but, according to some new interviews, it sounds as though we'll be cranking that number higher before this thing finally arrives on whatever subcutaneous implant we'll…

Podcast: The best and worst of E3 2018

The festival of dumb explosions known as E3 is over, but that won’t stop us. The RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, goes deep into the show, picking out our favourite games, the oddest moments, and best rats (spoiler: it was the one crushed by a shelf in the Resident Evil 2 trailer). We’re also introducing two new voices this week. Who are these strange…

No, The Witcher 3’s Ciri won’t be appearing in Cyberpunk 2077

A Witcher 3 Easter Egg that players believe references the world of Cyberpunk 2077 has, several years later, started to become a bit of a headache for the latter’s game director, Adam Badowski. It turns out that a lot of people are hoping to bump into Ciri as they explore the futuristic streets of Night City, but Badowski is putting his foot down. “I am…

Cyberpunk 2077 PC specs revealed for its incredi-E3 2018 demo

I didn't even go to E3 last week, but the sound of the games media's collective jaws dropping over CD Projekt Red's astounding Cyberpunk 2077 demo traveled so far across the globe that it was almost like I was in the room there with them - especially after reading Brendan's exhaustive preview on the subject, his interview with lead cinematic animator Maciej Pietras and Dave's in-depth Cyberpunk 2077 guide on everything we know so…

Cyberpunk 2077: everything we know so far

Cyberpunk 2077 finally came out of its shell at E3 2018. CD Projekt Red's first-person, open-world RPG was shown to the world via a colourful, exciting trailer, and then shown to press with a long, 50-minute in-game demonstration. We've seen both, interviewed the developers, interviewed the creator of the original Cyberpunk 2020 pen-and-paper RPG, and done our best to hack the Gibson to reveal any extra…

The best games of E3 2018, from cyberpunks to twisters

During this year’s E3, I saw the largest screen I’d ever witnessed, folded around the corner of a building like a giant piece of glowing paper. It told me to buy Nike. LA is already the neon futuretown of California, never mind Night City. But I didn’t just see ads for shoes at the LA convention centre, I saw a lot of games too. From…

Still dreaming of that Witcher/Cyberpunk 2077 crossover

Oh sure now CD Projekt Red are blabbing about Cyberpunk 2077 all over, blasting that rad trailer and showing a behind-closed-doors demo full of drugs, guns, and bums, but for a long time we clung to scraps. One of the more interesting was a story in The Witcher 3 from our magical daughter figure Ciri, which sounded like a nod to Cyberpunk. On her journey…

Feature: Cyberchat

A chat with CD Projekt Red about the romances, flying cars and hacking of Cyberpunk 2077

The demo for Cyberpunk 2077 shown to press at E3 was pretty neat. It displayed CD Projekt Red's upcoming first-person neo-noir RPG as a promising city of cybernetically enhanced mercenaries, dodgy information brokers, and corporate maniacs. Without a doubt, that demo will be shown to the rest of the public soon. For now, you can read my impressions or come with me right now, for…

Feature: The future looks good

Cyberpunk 2077’s demo at E3 was a vivid, drug-huffing first-person romp of guns and butts

Yup, the neon future of Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person RPG shooter. You can create your own character, drive cars through the streets, shoot gangster’s legs off in slow motion, hack their guns, and shag your fellow cyberpunks, among other deeds. All this is based on the 50-minute demo shown to press at E3 yesterday, a demo of asymmetrical haircuts, exposed buttocks, golden prosthetics and…

Every PC game at Microsoft’s E3 2018 conference

Microsoft had a lot of games to announce at E3 2018, but it's a little murkier this year to find out what was relevant for PC users. Some games were coming to both, others only to their Xbox One consoles. You could of course watch the entire conference right here, but for some there just isn't enough time to wade through the entire show. Not…

Cyberpunk 2077’s trailer hides some good news

Character creation, DRM, free DLC, and where the heck Cyberpunk 2077 has been are among the topics discussed in a secret message in the new trailer for CD Projekt Red's RPG. While I was distracted by haircuts and robots, those cyberpunks who fight against injustice and corruption every day of their lives were scanning the video for clues and combining 'glitched' frames to reveal a…

Cyberpunk 2077 looks wild in its E3 trailer

I've been waiting a long time to see more from Cyberpunk 2077, the next RPG from The Witcher devs CD Projekt Red, and daaamn. Today they gave us a whistlestop tour of its city in the game's E3 trailer, and it looks weird, wild, and a place I'd very much like to visit. Night City is crowded, colourful, vibrant, and full of terrible things for…

Feature: Hopes for hype

What we want to see at E3 2018 next week

E3 2018 begins on Saturday and over the week that follows will deliver new games, new trailers, and new details of what PC games we'll be playing in the years ahead. It is pure hype, all pomp and gloss and outlandish promises - but that's exactly why E3 is great. It's games as nothing but ideas and potential, before the yoke of reality gets attached…

CD Projekt Red’s new studio helping on Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt Red, the makers of those wonderful Witcher games, today announced they have a new studio elsewhere in Poland to "bolster development" of Cyberpunk 2077. No, this announcement contains no new information on Cyberpunk - but aren't you glad to hear Red have more people helping? I can't think of many upcoming games I'm more jazzed for. Anyway! CD Projekt Red Wrocław, named after…

Rumour: Cyberpunk 2077 to be shown at E3 2018

I half expected Witcher devs CD Project Red to be trolling us with the solitary 'beep' from the Cyberpunk 2077 account last week, and that we wouldn't hear anything from them for another 5 years. I mean, of course it was trolling - but Polish site GRYOnline have reported fresh rumours for the RPG, claiming certain information has arrived with them courtesy of two independent…

Cyberpunk 2077 beeps back to life, may yet boop, whirr

As RPS's token cyberpunk, required by contract to wear at least two leather jackets and sing Billy Idol while jamming with the console cowboys in cyberspace, it falls to me to tell you today's big Cyberpunk 2077 news: it beeped. Today the game's official Twitter account broke a four-year silence to blast *beep*. That's all. But oh, I'm excited to see signs that it might…

The most exciting games of 2018

As we lay 2017 to rest, let us remember all of the wonderful games that flickered across our screens and occupied our hearts and minds. But now we must promise never to think of them again because times have changed. This is 2018 and if we've learned one thing from the few hours we've spent in it it's that there are games everywhere. Every firework…
