Cyberpunk 2077’s final gameplay trailer shows what you’ll be doing, and why

Go here to get ready for the game’s Dec. 10 launch

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Closing out the final Night City Wire for Cyberpunk 2077 on Thursday was this: a meaty, five-minute look at gameplay inside CD Projekt Red’s highly anticipated role-playing game.

This is a start-to-finish examination of what you’ll be doing, and why, in Cyberpunk 2077’s open world. It touches on the game’s story, the broad origin for the player character, what Keanu Reeves is doing in this game and, more importantly, why he’s living rent-free in your character’s head. Literally.

Along the way, get a feel for how the game’s conversation choices, gun and melee combat, vehicle travel, and everything else will go. The character building ranges between guns-blazing, full-frontal assault and pure stealth and hackery, with many shades in between.

At long last, Cyberpunk 2077, launches Dec. 10 on Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. Optimized versions for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are due in 2021. Those who buy the game on PS4 and Xbox One will get the upgraded console version free.
