Cyberpunk 2077 Trailer & Gameplay Lore Analysis + Plot Speculation

Greetings earthlings!
Welcome to the MadQueen Show! I am your host the MadQueen! On today’s menu, as promised, we’re going
to make a detailed lore breakdown of the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer that was first shown during Microsoft’s
conference At E3, at the end, because when you lost all hope they took control of the
conference using a metaexploit to hack the servers of Microsoft’s conference netrunner
style, this metaexploit actually exists in real life, it’s a reverse tcp meterpreter
shell that means that it exploits a compromised computer to connect it back to the attacker and I had to ask to Bonnie BOT at the official Cyberpunk 2077 discord because I’m glad
that the world is full of people smarter than me that can explain those things to me So if you thought I had any clue of what was
I talking about, you’re wrong, but now we’re going to talk about things that I DO know And before we start analyzing the trailer
frame by frame, and I warn you this is going to be long, I strongly suggest that you watch
this video called Cyberpunk 2077 lore explained where you’ll have a pretty decent introduction
to the universe and if you’d like to know more, I have almost 50 lore videos explaining
every little detail so go ahead and check them out to learn about the Cyberpunk 2077 universe Also another warning: I’m going to skip everything
that has already been explained before, like the secret message, the Witcher codes… if
you’d like to know about that, you can google “secret message” and you’ll find dozens
of people talking about it, we’re going to focus on other details, so, whatever other
details you’d like to add to what I’m going to skip here, leave a comment, so other
people reading the comments will see more info, and also this way you will interact
with each other, which is also good As I said, in here I’m going to focus on
the lore and the story speculation that you can extract from here added to the information
that can be extracted from the gameplay demo they also showed at E3 We start in the metro of Night City, a city
that in 2077 was voted as the worst city to live in America due to being such a violent
city and having the highest rate of people living below the poverty line, but everybody
still wants to live here, the city always has a promise for you, it may be a lie or
an illusion, but it’s there just around the corner, and it keeps you going With this introduction they’re basically
describing the way of life of the Cyberpunks, also known as the Edge Runners, they live
on the edge, have a risky and more often than not illegal way to make a living and are the
main characters of this universe Survivors So, we go back to the metro of Night City,
and here we have a map that reveals a lot of information First we can notice the insane amount of Militech
logos in this map Militech is one of the three main megacorporations
that offers mercenary and security services, they also sell military equipment and are
a people that you would rather have as friends than as enemies We can also find their weapons later in the
trailer, but we’ll talk about this later This is an old version of the M in Militech’s
logo, so I believe that they used this M as the M for metro in this map more to make a
joke than to imply that the metro belongs to Militech This map belongs to south Night City, the
coastline that we can see in the metro map is San Morro Bay, where an island magically
appeared but, as it belongs to the megacorporation Orbital Air, it may perfectly be an artificial island In this map, the city center moved from south
of Del Coronado bay as it was in 2020 to west to Heywood, because as we should remember
a mini-nuke destroyed the Center of Night City in 2022, so in 2077 it seems that the
center has been rebuilt in a different place, which is more than logical As I said before, this metro only works on
south Night City, meaning in the North we still have this zero zone where the nuclear
fallout from the mini-nuke that exploded in 2022 made the zone inhabitable, and I hope
we will be able to visit it during the game We can also see in the map that the zone of
Pacifica can’t be reached, something is going on with Pacifica If you remember the video we made when some
months ago new images of the CD Projekt RED studio in Warsaw appeared on Google Maps,
Pacifica was one of the words that had a “hint sign” and we are mentioned this location
several times in the trailer, so it seems that Pacifica is going to be important in here The real world Pacifica, this trailers shows
nothing about the net, so we’ll forget about the net for this video From the metro we go forward, and we can see
a glimpse of who the Cyberpunks are, we’re also briefly shown several cyber implants,
as Mike Pondsmith, creator of the original pen and paper game and co-creator of Cyberpunk
2077, described the video game several times, this is more Punk than Cyber and we’re only
on the first 15 seconds of the trailer and we already noticed that We are not put the implants right in front
of our eyes, it’s like when you’re used to something, this something is there and
you don’t notice it anymore, but it’s there, we are way beyond this point where
things like implants need to be showed in a close-up to make sure that you see them,
it’s already assumed We also see the main protagonist, called V,
a character that is design with strong roots in the lore He wears a jacket of Samurai, the Chrome Rock
band composed by the singer and guitarist Johnny Silverhand, the bass player Kerry Eurodine
and the keyboarder Bes Isis Silverhand was the most notorious Rockerboy
of the Cyberpunk lore, he had a long list of grudges against the megacorporation Arasaka,
thanks to whom he lost his arm and several friends, and not only opposed Arasaka with
the lyrics of his songs, he also teamed with Militech at the end of the 4th Corporate War
to destroy Arasaka’s Arcology in the Corporate Center So I believe that this jacket gives us a lot
of clues about the personality and the alignment of this character We could also know from the demo that was
available to see this E3 that Johnny Silverhand is going to have some relevance in the game,
several songs composed by him were showed, including his megahit “chippin’
in” that we could hear when we were leaving CD Projekt RED’s booth after watching the
demo of the game In this dangerous world
where competence strives to destroy what you
treasure the most There’s an ally
you can rely on the number one agency
with the highest class operatives and the largest and
most reliable catalogue of arms and equipment Militech
First line of defense Now the metro goes outside and we can see
the first image of Night City, a decadent Judge Dredd style city And I must confess that is less vertical than
I expected, at least that’s the impression I have from the trailer So, where are we? Here Why? Because we’re in the intersections
between the Line 2 and 9, and the next station is Glen, so it seems that we’re in Heywood And what do we see? The logos of Araska and Orbital Air, two companies
that have a lot of relevance in the trailer if you’d like to know who they are
and what they do, you’re going to find a link in the description to everything that
I explain in here, including the mega corporations Arasaka is one of the three giants of military
and security contracting along with Lazarus, that are a little more ethic, and Militech,
a company that makes most of the weapons that we’re going to see in the game, although
not the only ones as vendors inside the game also offer guns made by Arasaka Orbital Air is a company that transports people
and cargo from Earth to Low Earth Orbit, especially to the space station Crystal Palace, which
would be out of business without them We move forward and we can see that Heywood
seems a pretty decent place to live, and, apart from noticing that they recycle, because that’s a little detail people seem to forget about this universe: they recycle, they even use a green fuel that was a substitute for oil called CHOOH™, invented by the mega-corporation
Biotechnica and commercialized by Petrochem, a megacorporation that we also see later I mean, the environment in this universe is
destroyed, but they try Really hard So we find in here a station of the Night
City Police Department, a flying car, everything pretty descriptive of the universe Also in this zone is where V lives, so for
those of you who were wondering if we’re going to have an apartment, according to the
demo, we do all that we see in this part of the
trailer is a description of the ambient of the city, that reminds me a lot of Judge Dredd
as I said before, but the good film adaptation, the last one, which I adore And we’re shown
a poster of the Chrome Idol Lizzy Wizzy and a couple more shows And then we see this What a coincidence, the first clear image
of a Corporate that we see is when the narrator says the word “promise” That’s so corporative Mega Corporations are the true powers in the
world of Cyberpunk 2077, and if you’d like to know more about them, guess what, I also
have several lore videos about them In this scene, we see the corporate Stephan
Torquil, from Datatech, showing a result for the E3 REVIEW SOFTWARE Stephen was hired on January 9th 2016, 3 years
after the teaser for Cyberpunk 2077 was shown for the first time, and that’s odd because
their date is usually January 10th, as both the trailer and the beep were in that date
and the previous teaser had also a reference to January 10th We also see that E3 has free shipping 102,
no idea what this means, and I checked all these numbers that seemed IP numbers with
no success, sorry In this image we can see that we’re on December
6th 2077, but if you read this date the European way is June 12th, the official start of E3 From here we go to a night scene, where we
can see the catalogue of the summer collection of a high end designer called Saeko, where
a Jacket costs almost E$2000, so, yes, the currency in Night City is still the Eurodollar In the game they are called “eddies”,
a word that I must confess I never heard before but, then again, I used to play 2020 in Spanish,
so in Spanish, we called them “Eurobucks” I couldn’t find this brand “Saeko” listed
anywhere in the lore, but I’ve always been an Icon America person myself, so maybe I
just don’t know it This is a wonderful thing about the trailer,
it shows the contrast between the vast majority of a population that lives below the poverty
line and jackets that cost almost E$2000 with the discount, because the price is a 50% off Then, we are shown a typical family, the kid
is playing with whatever the evolution of 2020s SegAtari Virtual Reality set is in 2077,
obviously, they wouldn’t be able to use the original SegAtari name for copyright reasons,
I suppose Meanwhile, the parents are watching TV, but
now they are in the commercial break with some prepack food commercial And again, the posh part of the city As I said before, the trailer is trying to
show us the huge gap between the people living in Night City, from the ultra rich and corporates
to the cyberpunks, and in this frame we can see an example of something I explained several
times in lore videos: the upper part of the city: see the upper you go, the nicer it gets,
the street levels of Night City are the low levels and are for low-level people This character is super adorable, his name
is Jackie and he’s going to be the first companion we have in the game, according to
the demo There’s a consensus that the character class
of Jackie is a Nomad, but I must confess that I’m not sure about that, he doesn’t seem
a nomad to me and I don’t see him doing nomadic things Again, low life scene again, the beautiful
violence of Night City people is asking Where is Johnny? There are several ways in this universe to
extend your life so people are asking if he may be alive and well in 2077, the problem
here is that he died, in a very epic way, in 2022 at the hands of an Arasaka Cyborg
called Adam Smasher, so it’s hard that he’s still alive, but he died fighting Arasaka,
so he may be a symbol and a martyr for the cause From here we go to a bar and people went crazy
saying “It’s the Afterlife!” Well, in one hand it would make sense because
the official forum of Cyberpunk 2077 is called Afterlife and this bar is mentioned several
times in the demo, but on the other hand, these people here don’t look like a bunch
of tough solos looking for a job, and in general it doesn’t look dirty enough to be a low
life meeting place, so I have my doubts, and there are many bars in Night City, imagine
how boring the city would be if there was only one Some combat training because is always good
for the spirit, this scenario is part of the building where V lives, a megabuilding that
is very similar to the one where the action of Judge Dredd takes place And then THIS: A bunch of Brainiacs in a Combat Cabb Combat Cabb is the only taxi company that
operates in the combat zone, and this driver, Isamu Narayan, Japanese name and Indian surname,
is driving a bunch of Brainiacs that are also taking a look at the weapons he has for sale
in his taxi Brainiacs are a boostergang known for being
deadly without being the most violent ones, they usually have other means to kill people,
and they are incredibly smart They are also one of the very few boostergangs
that work for megacorporations There are other curious things about this
scene This code introduced as an ip address takes us to the web page https://www.codeinthedark.co.uk/ that really sounds like a real webpage, is
totally cyberpunk in style but it seems that it talks about a real event called “code
in the dark”, described by the organizers as “Code in the Dark is a competitive coding
competition, pitting some of the best front-end developers against one another in a head to
head battle for supremacy!” And, for the love of god!
It’s impossible that this sounds even more netrun-ish You can see the same code in the web that
we saw in the Combat Cabb I googled the people participating in it and
I even sent them a message, everything sounds so shady in here, I’m going to need that
you help me and take a look, because I’m not sure if I’m going crazy but…
beat with me This is too strange to be a coincidence You’ll find the link in the description And, again, if you find something, leave a
comment and let me know After this weird intermission and I totally
hope that these Code in the Dark people have something to do with Cyberpunk 2077 or they’re
going to be laughing at my mail for weeks, after that we see something that looks like
some sort of customization screen, it looks like it but the character creation system
we saw at the beginning of the demo is very different, although we should not forget that
biosculpt and other ways to modify yourself exist in this universe, so it may perfectly
be something like this And this woman here seems to be pretty obsessed
with the Chrome idol Lizzy Wizzy They live in a City of dreams, where these
dreams seem to involve sex, power and drugs Drugs are pretty common in Night City by the
way, so expect several combat drugs to be present in the game They were in the demo At Arasaka we value
the safety of your home Your new Arasaka
Personal Home Scanner is next-generation threat
detection equipment that responds to potential
threats in miliseconds to keep you and your
family safe Arasaka
Feel protected Back to the city with the main protagonist,
again we can see what seems the Corporate Center with buildings that belong to the megacorporations
Arasaka and Orbital Air, and in the left several commercials including the cyberware brand Kiroshi that we also see in the demo In the center our main protagonist with his car This Samurai fan has a patch in his jacket
with the text Welcome to Pacifica Paradise, as well as the word Crystajock in the frontal
of the jacket and we can’t see the complete word here, but I carefully inspected the jacket
of the official cosplayer at CD Projekt’s booth to find out if it said Crystaljock or
not and many thanks to this cosplayer for his patience Crystaljocks are a new breed of netrunners
that doesn’t appear in the basic sourcebook but appeared later in the Hardwired supplement,
that has an alternate set of rules for how netrunning works, in the case of Crystaljoks,
instead of using virtual reality interfaces they use viruses and apps, and it explains
a lot about certain abilities that V has during the game, like being able to connect to people’s
bodycomp using a cable from his arm Back to V, he wears a jacket of a band that
opposed Arasaka and something happened in Pacifica… the plot thickens! If I had to bet, I would say that Pacifica
turned into the new Combat Zone, but that’s just speculation V has the typical Militech gun, and I say
“typical” because of the shape, is so lore friendly, we can even see the serial
number Yes, I think I approve of this gun Militech also makes security and defense robots
that sometimes are accidentally misplaced and end up in the hands of some boostergang
for a decent amount of money Black market? Where, is just your average fixer trying to
make a living This fixer that we can see in the left of
the image, also appears in the game, but I’m afraid I can’t remember his name In fact in the demo we saw a quest related
to this image this quest involved this corporate of Militech this Fixer this lovely robot And a boostergang called Maelstrom After that we have the Chrome idol Lizzy Wizzy,
she’s on tour so we can assume she’s a Rockergirl, and one of the real ones, not
the pop stars that sold their souls to the megacorporations Because if she was the latter, then her security
would most probably be Arasaka, which doesn’t seem to be the case And, as we’ve seen several times in this
trailer, from the top we go to the lowest again, with this couple of lovely rednecks
that show the only American flag in the whole trailer set in an American city Outside the cities, the only things that we can find obviously, apart form Nomads are wasteland or agro-farms that are controlled by Megacorporations, so I think that we can
guess in here we have the latter Most of the farming fields in the United States
belong to the megacorporation Petrochem, who grows the genetically modified yeast needed
to manufacture the CHOOH™ fuel, this substitute of oil that I explained to you before And back to Night City, this reminds me a
lot of a scene of Blade Runner only that in here it all looks like someone is going to
lose an arm Is it me or this guy has written “I’m
in the army” all over his face? Lazarus I would say, but that’s a wild guess For those who lost a fight and can afford
the medical service, here you have a Trauma Team MedTech in action! Trauma Team is a paramedical franchise that
most probably is going to be in charge of reviving us in game, this is speculation and don’t worry, although
they are incredibly expensive, they have the legal obligation of reviving anyone around
them that needs it But only revive, then they leave the poor
bastard exactly where they were And, by the way, they are exactly as I imagined them Exactly When I was at CD Projekt’s booth I had the
chance to see a concept art of this scene, I’m so glad they chose the design we see
in here, is just perfect Then we have some people playing basket in
V’s building and oh! Someone got flatlined, that is a Cyberpunkish
way to say that he was killed, while connected in an Orbital Air flight Either that, or he had the worst reaction
to the original Cyberpunk teaser than I did to the trailer Yep. or is it something he saw in Network
News 54’s news? We can see in the background that we are in
low earth orbit and the guy was connected to something so, is it regular brain hacking
or is the Soul Killer? Can it be the Soul Killer? The soul Killer was a program that was invented
by the Netrunner Alt Cunningham, and we’re going to add some lore gossip in here+ Johnny Silverhand was her boyfriend this first version of the SoulKiller allowed a netrunner to upload their soul,
also called engram, to the net, that was like a superior way of being in the net After discovering the existence of such program
the founder of Arasaka, Saburo Arasaka, kidnapped her to make a more deadly version In Arasaka’s soulkiller version, the soul
was extracted and trapped and the body was killed It is thought that the soulkiller was destroyed
at the end of the 4th Corporate War, that was what Johnny Silverhand was trying to do
at Arasaka’s building the day the mini-nuke exploded and he got killed: they were trying to destroy the
SoulKiller But… was the Soul Killer really destroyed? And, by the way, this guy is so shocked by
everything happening here! Corporates again! In this case, he seems to be watching a surveillance
drone footage of a riot It looks like drone footage and not news because
in the foot of the images we can see that the footage belongs to Lazarus Corporation,
a security contractor Their report also includes the information
that the megacorporation Petrochem lost some assets that were stolen with the intention
to reduce inequality and poverty and that dozen were killed in a wave of anti-corporate protests To the right of this image, we can see the
map of the free states of California and Night City, and this map looks a lot to what is
being discussed now in the real California in real life, what a social commentary, but
I swear it’s lore friendly, California was already like this in the lore What assets could Petrochem lose that would
reduce inequality and poverty? Well, its farmlands are used to create fuel,
not to grow food, which is not exactly plentiful in this universe, so getting control of Petrochem
farmlands to grow food would be a great way to start And this is speculation, obviously But Arasaka seems to be in the center of all
this plot because, again, someone gets flatlined, this time during a board meeting at the Arasaka
megacorporation this time we can especulate that the flatline could be eaither caused by the use of the SoulKiller program or some Netrunner sent a Black Ice his way And, what a coincidence, she flatlined the
Arasaka corporate just when they were going to unveil a new project for Night City This netrunner was watching this live from
CBC Channel 4 that, if I recall correctly, belongs to World News Service, and the headlines
are the same than the ones in the previous shot: Petrochem assets lost to be redistributed
and riots caused several dead Interesting And here we have either a new iteration of
our fully customizable character, or a new companion This time she looks like a Solo, which is
one of the character classes that are going to be playable in the game and that are some
sort of mercenaries, and I totally love the hair A solo that is prepared to survive the nights
in this mean place called Night City and I’m going to give an award to whoever remembers
what boostergang had the tradition of removing the eyes of their victims I explained that in one of the three boostergangs
video, let’s see if someone remembers But boosters are not always victorious in
this display of violence, sometimes they rob the wrong shop and shit happens The headlines of the press at this shop explain
to us that something is happening in Pacifica that involves the Valentino boostergang, which is odd because they are not
known for being violent We also know from the headlines that one of
the founders of the megacorporation Militech, Antonio Luccessi, died at 116 years of age That’s pretty old, so we’re going to assume
his dead was natural, but go figure This is Night City And someone with his resources should be able
to live a lot more Night City, a place where everybody do their
job, and Trauma Team excel at that Because that’s why they are the best paramedical
service available: they not only cure you, they also secure the zone and make sure that
everyone that has a gun pointing at you stops having a gun pointing at you, meaning they
have a more than decent firepower And people working there are Techies, so those
of you who aren’t convinced that Techie is one of the playable Character Classes, I have
something to say to you: you’re concerned because you don’t know the Trauma Team. They kick ass. Techies can kick ass. Not all of the members of a Truma Team team are Techies, but they kick ass But, they don’t have it easy with this cyborg
that, oh wait, he’s soviet? Nope, don’t you think about the typical
and topical political enmity between the States and Russia, but, remember when we talked about
some assets that were stolen from Petrochem? Remember what megacorporation is the direct competitor of Petrochem and fought the Second Corporate war against it? Yep, the Russian megacorporation SovOil V And his car are ready for action! I know it’s not the same car, but you gotta
admit is the first thing that came to mind And you noticed that, right? Yes, I know that more than one of you knows
what it means, please leave a comment I know you know, we discussed it already,
and I said before, this way you can interact with each other and discuss these details Well, folks, thanks for watching I hope you found this information useful and amusing Apart from that, I still owe you several videos
detailing the gameplay we saw at E3, especially the one about the combat, as it seems my opinion
is pretty controversial, but I’m sure that when I detail the explanation you will understand
my point You may agree or disagree, but you will understand See you in next videos, and stay being amazing

I've felt the two flatlined characters shown were connected, that Arasaka killed the person we saw die on the plane, and the killing in the boardroom was retaliation. I'm betting the first was the deceased Militech founder. If so, these are likely the opening salvos in a new corporate war. If not, I'd bet the same person killed both… though someone could also be trying to start a corporate war that way.

Thank you for making this. Really enjoyed it. And if the fpv still worries you – think of all the great story focused fpv games like Bioshock, Dishonered, New Vegas, and the recent Wolfensteins and maybe feel more at ease (I know, I can't relate to this condition you and others feel). Don't close off from this seemingly great game and keep making YT a better place.

Was waiting ages for this video – Others did break downs, but none like you; also in the flowchart of the E3 review software, the dates March 01 2077 to December 24 2077 as the period where they pulled the data from, but based on the current date of the chart, that period/Timeline isn't completed. Could this be a hint at their "Marketing time" or maybe we'll get something this winter – either way, no Fiscal Year ends on Christmas Eve, so it seems off enough to not be random numbers and have some correlation to something else – Or this could be me over-speculation. 😀

At 28:00 I didn't realize before until now there was a bike near female V (possibly) that looks so similar (color & overall shape) with "Akira" iconic motorcycle.

Also, I think some of the scenes were very much connected like a linear story. for example like the make up cyber girl is probably a prostitute in the next scene. Corporate guy 1 selling the pitch for increase stock market, corporate guy 2 (from other company) died in the space plane got assassinated (to smooth the plan), & the next corporate guy 3 died at conference from a retaliation in previous assassination (& also disturbing Arasaka net worth in the stock market).

While I look at trailer it does look like the M2 train heads to: The Glen > Downtown > Little China > Med Center > New Harbor
so we actually look at HEYWOOD.
Maybe the CITY CENTRE is much more verticall.
Also it does look like the train move at a pretty decent height above the ground.

wondering something. if the CW IV happenned already, shouldn't we see the AlterKults (Edgerunners, Desnai, Reefers, etc) the ever-growing Night City conurbs going from Anchorage to Tijuana and the criminal Neo-corps, or is CP2077 a replacement for Cyberpunk V3 (aka 203x in the French version)?

I am starting to accept that the hame is 1st person. But do you think there is a chance that CDPR could include some kind of 3rd person? I mean it was already said that in the demo you can see your body (so it is rendered) and they have photo mode, AND they render the character is seen in 3rd person during cut scenes and during driving. I hope i hope they do it ..

Shame I can't be a Cop in this game, would have loved to go round the city like Dredd, taking down creeps and arresting punks. Though I have heard you can achieve skills, perks and abilities from working with/for people of the other classes. Like Rockerboys and corporates, and most definitely even Cops! So by working for the Police I'd imagine you get Cop skills and abilities but you're still a Solo or Techie.

Great lore breakdown, I'm amongst the large group of people relying on you to explain the barrage of lore this game's gonna send our way and this video alone explains more than dozens of other videos I've seen combined. Big respect for going into such depth despite the concerns you have about your own ability to play the game on launch; I really feel for you on that one, but thankyou for carrying on regardless. Also, that website you found has ARG written all over it; CDPR have already started something of a viral marketing campaign with the Xbox E3 thing, an ARG would be an absolute natural fit for CP2077.

Edit: I had a look at that website, looks like it took place in Leeds where I live, if something comes of it, I'm willing to get my ass down to whatever might happen 🙂

Jun 6, 2018, 7:16 pm Reply

Awesome video MadQueen! (As usual, duh)
One thing I noticed is that Jackie (the guy we see sitting with his unholstered pistol) is the one seen later in the trailer, kindly "retrieving" optical cyberwear. If you pause the video you can clearly see the same tattoo on his forearm, gold bracelets and ring. Perhaps he is doing an odd job for a boostergang? Or maybe he is looking for a cheap way to upgrade? Lol. Small detail that people may already know but just thought I'd mention anyway.
Also I believe the fixer seen in the trailer is called Dexter Deshawn, and apparently he is kind of a big deal with lots of connections. We see him trying to sell a stolen militech drone (it's stolen and you know it), but who is he selling it to? IMO they look like 2 solos, contracted by a rich-looking kid with too much free time on his hands, who is trying to have some fun by blowing some shit up. The dangerous-looking woman appears asian, which could mean little or could perhaps mean the group is somehow connected to Arasaka. Idk just guessing.

So, since you saw the gameplay demonstration, how "customizable" is your character? Is it on the level of, say, the Sims 4?

Question: Is the term 'Cyberpunk' referring to a person actually a thing in the tabletop material? Or is the better description of V simply an Edgerunner?

If you look up the companies Epiphany and Tictail mentioned on the website, they both have their fingers in the advertisement business pie. At first I was under the impression that this is a capture the flag website (hacking contests), but it seems to be a simple advertisement. Let me know what you think.

Mind blown by this video! I was upset because I was interrupted by a commercial then realized it was militech commercial and It just slowly made me smile. I am so amazed at how immersive your vid is. It’s almost like a living witness to the splendor and horror that is Night City. This game is going to blow away everyone socks. You guys do know it’s first person right? And if you play this in VR we might loose touch in reality due to the immersion. I expect to be MIA for months!

NC night city CP cyberpunk 77 2077 the year. I am wondering if the game will be released in 2020. Now that would be so ironic that the original paper and pen was set in that year. Oh and yes we do have flying cars that land on water and land. I just need to find that video again. I will share if I find it. 🙂
