Warning: before watching this video, you may want to put a pillow under your jaw to break its fall. CD Projekt RED has released its first teaser trailer for Cyberpunk 2077, and it’s a stunner.
Cyberpunk 2077 updates the classic RPG (the kind where you use a book, not the video game genre) Cyberpunk 2020 with a fresh storyline that promises to maintain the dark, edgy substance of its source material. In this future world, ordinary citizens commonly receive mechanical augmentations (a la Deus Ex: Human Revolution).
But what happens when substance abuse causes these otherwise normal individuals to lose control of their enhancements? That’s when you send in the Psycho Squad, an elite law enforcement agency that specializes in taking down these citizens-gone-amok.
This slow-mo trailer is a pre-rendered CGI deal with no actual in-game footage. But it purports to introduce you to the game’s setting, tone, and design. Check it out and let us know what you think in the Comments area below.
