In particular, we were shown more on how versatile the weaponry in Cyberpunk 2077 is, which is split into three main categories: Power, Smart, and Tech.

A brief Q&A featured in addition to the gameplay presentation during the actual livestream also provided a ton of interesting tidbits as each of the weapon categories is broken down.

Notably, as explained by senior gameplay designer Pawel Kapawa, CD Projekt Red has worked tirelessly to find a pleasing balance between RPG mechanics and FPS gameplay. A key focus has been to make sure weapons not only feel great to shoot but also alter how players approach tactical situations.

Also featured in today’s Night City Wire, a second new trailer showcasing how players are able to shape the backstories of their V character build was presented.

Cyberpunk 2077 is slated for launch on Nov. 19 across PS4, Xbox One, and PC, which is a two-month delay from its previous Sept. 17 slot.

Players who purchase the game on current-generation systems will have the opportunity to play it on either PS5 or Xbox Series X free of charge, though a proper next-gen port is also in the works for 2021.
