Polish outfit CD Projekt RED have just unveiled the first teaser for their shiny new RPG Cyberpunk 2077.
Driven ‘psycho’ by a chronic overuse of body enhancements, this teaser shows the results of one heavily modified woman’s rampage against the ‘meatbags’. HK-47 would be proud.
Cyberpunk 2077 aims to bring gamers a mature new RPG experience as they rise from the gutters of the decadent and dystopian ‘Night City’ dodging gangs, megacorps and police along the way. Sadly there’s not so much as a frame of game footage to be seen in this teaser, but should its quality and tone translate across into the finished product then it will certainly be worth waiting for.
Check out the press release blurb and trailer below:
The teaser shows how the Psycho Squad might acquire a new member. The Psycho Squad specializes in combating “psychos” – individuals who overuse implants and substances that boost or otherwise alter the human body. There comes a point when they overdose on these innovations, and their bodies start to rebel against their biological body parts as well as against all things organic around them. Simply put, they start killing people, who they now derisively call “meatbags.”
When a psycho goes on the rampage, strange things can happen. There’s going to be a lot of carnage, so the psycho might be taken down by regular police, but they’re not always able to get the job done. When things spin out of control, they call in MAX-TAC (Maximum Force Tactical Division), popularly called the “Psycho Squad”. And these guys are exceptional, these guys are crack troops. The fact that they’re proud of that name tells you a bit about their mindset. They wear a badge with their official emblem on their right sleeve, but their left is reserved for their unofficial Psycho Squad emblem. It’s primitively made and the image itself is on the crude side of things. It’s not unlike a badge special force operators might make and wear to distinguish themselves from the ranks of grunts in any theatre of war.
