Cyberpunk 2077 very much has a presence at E3 this year – but it’s also very much the same as it was the year before. Cool Keanu aside, there wasn’t much new in what was shown to the public in the Xbox conference, and there wasn’t any gameplay at all.
There’s still no availability for an actual hands on with the gameplay here but, at least, there is another near fifty-minute demo we were able to see behind closed doors. It was played live by someone from CD Projekt Red, and much of what we’ve come to know about Cyberpunk 2077 already is clearly evident. It’s still beautiful and vast, still a technological marvel, at least to my layperson eyes, still extraordinarily detailed.
And we still have questions, namely about its themes – does it know what they are? And its tone – does it have anything to say? Here’s what we saw, regardless, and if you’re wondering about an interview don’t worry, we’ll have ours with you soon, too.
