Not often do you have a game that creates this much hype, whether it’s the limitless potential of Night City or the plethora of paths you can go down in the story. Another aspect that has been very promising based on early screenshots and demo footage is the vehicle selection.
Futuristic vehicles would naturally look incredible and be even more amazing to drive. That’s why it’s great to see Cyberpunk 2077 focusing a lot on vehicle selection and memorable driving experiences, which players will be able to officially check out on November 19, 2020.
Vehicles were actually one of the main highlights from the fourth episode of Night City Wire, a series of online showcases for the game. The Riders of the Dark Future trailer — which came out today — breaks down some of them in greater detail.
It’s clear there are plenty of options. You have modern motorcycles, heavy-duty trucks, and supercars you thought came from a dream. CD Projekt Red clearly knew vehicles would be an important part of how players get around Night City. It’s massive in scale so players need to have cool ways of getting to target destinations.
The visuals of the vehicles are absolutely breathtaking. It’s also cooling seeing the different perspectives. The third-person view should be great to use when you want to see your surroundings. Then when you want to up your immersion while driving around the various districts, you can switch over to first-person mode. It’s like you’re actually there behind the wheel.
Driving mechanics also look to be pretty decent. That’s impressive considering CD Project Red had so many aspects to focus on and perfect in Cyberpunk 2077. The driving doesn’t look to be taking a back seat at all and that just shows what type of fun experiences players have to look forward to.
It’s also refreshing to hear that the developer made every vehicle look and drive differently. That provides a different experience each time you get into a new vehicle. Just driving around seeing Night City in all of its glory looks like an incredible experience.
Then you have the main story and side quests to go on. Cyberpunk 2077 truly is looking like a game-changing title that could shape how RPGs are made going forward. The game has a lot to live up to, but in terms of driving, the hype seems well deserved.
