12:53 PM August 11, 2020

CD PROJEKT RED has unveiled three featurettes centered around the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. The videos focus on the life paths, weaponry, and music of the game, and were all featured on the second episode of Night City Wire. 

The Lifepaths featurette takes an in-depth look at the different backstories players will be able to choose for V — the main character of Cyberpunk 2077. Each path provides a distinct introduction to Night City and influences V’s experiences throughout the game. 


Tools of Destruction focuses on the varied arsenal in Cyberpunk 2077. Guns, melee, and cyberware weaponry are all demonstrated, highlighting numerous ways players can engage in direct combat during their adventure through the most dangerous city of the dark future.


Finally, Becoming SAMURAI goes behind the scenes to show how Swedish hardcore punk band Refused musically brings the in-game chrome rock legends SAMURAI to life, and features interviews with band members and insight into the creative process behind the portrayal. 

Players who wish to dive deeper into the lore of Cyberpunk 2077 can now pick up ‘The World Of Cyberpunk 2077’, a brand new book created in collaboration with Dark Horse Books. More details can be found here. CD PROJEKT RED Gear’s first Cyberpunk 2077-themed figure, Trauma Team Elite Response Unit, has also been presented and is now available for pre-order

Cyberpunk 2077 will release November 19th, 2020, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with the version for Google Stadia set to launch the same year. The game will also be playable on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles when available.
