If you have been hearing a huge amount of hype surrounding the upcoming role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077, you may be wondering why the game is so exciting to gamers.
After all, so many games are released every year, why is this one different?
The setting — While the subject of cyberpunk is popular among geeks and nerds, it is rarely used in video games according to cdkeysforgames.com.
With only a handful of games currently on the market that have a cyberpunk theme, it is no wonder there is such excitement around the upcoming release of Cyberpunk 2077.
The developers — The video game company that is responsible for developing Cyberpunk 2077 is CD Projekt Red. They are a Polish company that is the parent company of the game distributor GOG.com. They also have an impeccable reputation for being a gamer’s favorite due to the company treating their customers well.
CD Projekt Red is also the developer of the RPG series The Witcher. These three games are thought to be three of the best RPGs ever created, so fans expect Cyberpunk 2077 to be just as good if not better.
The eight year development cycle — The game has been in development for almost eight years and, during that time, CD Projekt Red has said again and again that they will not be rushed to release.
This means, by the time Cyberpunk 2077 is released in April of 2020, it is unlikely to be a game full of bugs. Instead, it is expected to be one of the few games released that simply works, without all of the drama and annoyance connected to so many other games nowadays.
The attention to detail — The Cyberpunk 2077 teaser trailers and previews that have already been released show a highly detailed game, with gorgeous artwork and stunning animation.
The detail carries over to character customization, which is second to none, and to the game’s weapon design.
Many critics that have seen part of the game being played stress the attention to detail in Cyberpunk 2077 is unlike anything they have seen before.
The weaponry — Many gamers play RPGs not only for the story but also for the weaponry.
Cyberpunk 2077 is not likely to disappoint as initial reviews talk about there being a huge number of weapons in the game to choose from, and weapons that are unusual compared to other RPGs.
Keanu Reeves — The actor Keanu Reeves also appears in the game, and this is causing great excitement to gamers.
After all, Reeves was the star of such nerd classics as The Matrix and John Wick, so they fully expect him to bring that type of geek interest to Cyberpunk 2077 as well.
