Solving crimes in Cyberpunk 2077 needs to be less like Arkham and more like Paradise Killer

As we get closer to Cyberpunk 2077 launch day (which I imagine will be like when Elon Musk punts one of his cars into space just because), my life has become increasingly blurred. By day I am immersed in video game stuff, looking back through the Night City Wires and prepping as much as possible for a huge action RPG that will consume at least…

Is your Cyberpunk 2077 merch cyberpunk enough?

We are now but a month out from the release of Cyberpunk 2077. The massive action RPG finally landed on a November 19th launch date after a couple of delays (any further chance of a date push having apparently been, itself, pushed by developers CD Projekt rolling back their "no mandatory crunch" policy). Not that we've been bereft of Cyberpunk content in the meantime. In…

Cyberknight is the cyberpunk Hollow Knight mod I didn’t know I needed

What if Hollow Knight... but cyberpunk? This was never a question that really crossed my mind. The futuristic neon stuff is everywhere at the moment, largely because of CD Projekt Red's impending RPG Cyberpunk 2077, but the last place I expected to find hints of the techy genre was in a gothic metroidvania about a long lost kingdom of bugs. Inspired by all the cyberpunk…

Cyberpunk 2077’s gangsters are all graphic design afficionados

Following on from the recent release of The World Of Cyberpunk 2077 last week (it's a big fancy book revealing some delicious Cyberpunky secrets prior to Cyberpunk 2077's release in November), CD Projekt has spaffed a load of Gangs Of Night City posters onto Displate. New merch isn't the sort of thing I pay much attention to, normally. But in this case, it's given us…

Corpo is clearly the coolest Cyberpunk 2077 lifepath, let’s all sell out

When Video Matthew, Brendy (RPS in peace) and I discussed the very first Cyberpunk 2077 demo, way back in 2018, Brendy made fun of Matthew and I for being suits. We said we'd be interested in finishing the game, a massive first-person sci-fi RPG from the people who brought you The Witcher 3, as a big corporate sellout. Well, the joke is very much on…

Cyberpunk 2077’s new Westbrook concept art looks like a spaceship crashed into a golf course

Ever since the Night City Wire the other week, CDProjekt Red seem to have opened the dam on Cyberpunk 2077 info. The slow drip-feed of news about their upcoming action RPG, based on the famous TTRPG and set in a futuristic neon dystopia of high-tech body modding and greedy megacorps, has increased, and now we're getting a steady trickle of new art and ray traced…

As Cyberpunk 2077 is running late, here’s a broad spread of cyberpunky fun

Now that Cyberpunk 2077 is delayed from April to September, what are you to do? You've grown a lurid blue mohawk, your leather jacket is almost worn in, and your prescription mirrorshades are ready for collection at Specsavers - but for what? You might as well use this time to explore all games cyberpunky, from edgy and nihilistic griping about how the future sucks to…

2020’s most exciting new PC games

Over the break we had a chance to do some serious scientific study of this business we call games, and it turns out that games are actually good. 2020 in particular has a healthy mix of big budget bonanzas and smaller indie plates to suit everyone's discerning tastes. And, as you know, the RPS treehouse is the most discerning, so to make it easier for…

Cyberpunk creator Mike Pondsmith on turning his tabletop game into Cyberpunk 2077

The so new it's not even out yet hotness in games is still Cyberpunk 2077, but as the name suggests, it's not the original Cyberpunk. Although there aren't 2076 previous entries, there is a robust and well loved tabletop roleplaying game to thank for the existence of CD Projekt Red's upcoming RPG.The TRPG was written by Mike Pondsmith, the founder of publisher R. Talsorian Games,…

Cyberpunk 2077’s Night City strives to be a unique and grounded cyberpunk city

Marthe Jonkers is a senior concept artist at CD Projeckt Red working on Cyberpunk 2077. Jonkers actually designed the location in the first very first teaser trailer for the game back in 2013, featuring the cyberbabe with mantis arms, and was resigned to the fact that nobody was really looking at the building behind her.Jonkers' team work on locations and interiors, and even the broader…

Cyberpunk 2077 might secretly be a cool hacker stealth game

Reader, I often tire quickly of the bangs. The shooties. The click click booms. I think it's because damn near every action game has guns, but not many developers make shooters really bloody good. And indeed, I agree with Matt that, at least from what we've seen so far, the guns in Cyberpunk 2077 look mostly like floaty number generators. And yet, as was pointed…

Feature: The future context defence

Cyberpunk 2077’s in-game context doesn’t matter if its marketing contributes to transphobia right now

During this week's E3, Cyberpunk 2077 developers CD Projekt Red released a new CG trailer starring Keanu Reeves, showed the game to press behind closed doors, and handed out some new screenshots. Two screens in particular were released via Nvidia to show off ray tracing effects, and both seem innocuous enough. One depicts what looks like a science lab, the other a neon-lit stairwell, but…

Cyberpunk 2077’s E3 demo has weak gunplay and unimaginative stereotypes

At some point, Cyberpunk 2077 has to evolve from a visually impressive - yes Keanu, even breathtaking - world and into something more interesting. I want more than meat and gun oil: I want moral dilemmas and a thoughtful exploration of transhumanism. More importantly, I want the game not to lean on racial stereotypes. After CD Projekt Red's latest E3 demo, I'm concerned on both…

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 after…
