GOG makes another offensive tweet, offers non-apology

The digital storefront GOG has yet again tweeted something horrible and stupid. In a (deleted but widely screencapped) tweet on Monday, GOG used the #WeWontBeErased hashtag. The tag is being used in protest of Trump administration's plans to rewrite the legal definition of gender to strip legal protections from those who have changed theirs. Co-opting the tag to promote themselves didn't go down well. The company…

Cyberpunk 2077 augments its team with Dying Light’s PvP crew

CD Projekt Red today announced an interesting partnership today with small studio Digital Scapes, with initial plans for them to work on upcoming mega-budget immersive sim Cyberpunk 2077. Digital Scapes recently made some waves through their work on Dying Light's surprisingly entertaining asymmetrical PvP mode while Techland focused on the single-player side of the game. Tempting as that sounds, the announcement says that Digital Scapes…

Let’s chat about: The Cyberpunk 2077 demo

Alice B: So we have now all seen the Cyberpunk 2077 demo footage. But also the world has! Which is interesting because Brendy mentioned on our Gamescom podcast that, because it was all behind closed doors, it’d be hard for us to compare it to the full game when it actually came out. Brendan: But then they went and released the footage to the public…

Feature: Bigger than genre

Trans representation in Cyberpunk 2077 matters, but not because it’s cyberpunk

Even before its recent public gameplay unveiling, Cyberpunk 2077 was the target of a very particular piece of criticism. Perhaps sparked by the transphobic joke made by the game's Twitter account, many online have been calling out 2077 for presenting yet another future that, despite its overt themes of transhumanism and body modification, falls strictly into the gender binary. Despite the gender diversity already prevalent…

Cyberpunk 2077: everything we know so far

With Cyberpunk 2077's 50 minute long demonstration now available for public viewing, it's about time to catch up on everything that has been shown off so far with CD Projekt Red's first-person, open-world RPG. For a game that we've seen little of, we've heard a lot about it; interviews the developers, interviews with the creator of the original Cyberpunk 2020 pen-and-paper RPG, and we've even done…

Cyberpunk 2077 shows off 48 minutes of shooting and body hacking

There it is. Cyberpunk 2077, the upcoming guns 'n' conversation RPG from the Witcher 3 developers, was unveiled yesterday with a 48 minute demo of man-shooting, drug-huffing, and robot-haggling. This is the same demo that was shown behind closed doors to press at both E3 and Gamescom (I wrote about it back in June). Developers CD Projekt Red are showing it with one giant proviso:…

Podcast: The Gamescom Special 2018

It’s time for Gamescom, the yearly show in Germany. There are lots of games here. Too many for a lone operator. We’re going to have to send a whole unit. That’s where you come in, members of the elite RPS podcast. Four of you are going to Cologne. We’ve heard reports of Cyberpunk 2077, Metro Exodus, Biomutant, Dying Light 2, Ape Out, Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot and…

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…

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…

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…

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…
