'Witcher' developer CD Projekt reveals 'Cyberpunk' details

By
Witcher developer CD Projekt has revealed new Cyberpunk information.

The game's community manager Marcin Momot said that Cyberpunk's deep customisation options will be linked to the story and that the game's primary location will be called Night City, reports CVG.

"As opposed to the regular fantasy set-up with mages, warriors and archers, we're going for something different," explained Momot.

"In Cyberpunk, each character role will offer a set of special skills that will impact your stats in many different ways. That's where the challenge kicks in; we want to create a game where character customisation will be strongly tied with the plot.

"Now going from that, we believe that we can make a game where, with many different role choices, you will get a very strong, engaging story, just like it was with The Witcher."

Momot further elaborated on the customisation element, saying it goes far deeper than it did with The Witcher, before talking up the open-world environment and Night City.

"We definitely want to give players way more freedom with customisation of the main protagonist then they had with Geralt in the Witcher series," he said.

"We are planning on letting them change their statistics, equipment, implants and much more.

"Cyberpunk's story takes place all over the world, but we're going to focus on its most characteristic venue - Night City. One thing is certain, we want to make a game with an open, living world that stays true to the source material."

Cyberpunk was announced by The Witcher developer CD Projekt in May.

The title will be based on the pen-and-paper role-playing game of the same name, taking place in a futuristic setting filled with cybernetic implants and high-tech weaponry.

It is being designed for a mature and demanding audience, with a non-linear story that can be shaped by complex character interactions and player choices similar to those in the Witcher series.

The Cyberpunk pen-and-paper game originally released in 1988 as Cyberpunk 2013, with later editions released in 1990 and 2005.

No release date or target platforms have been announced yet for Cyberpunk. Given CD Projekt's history, a PC release can be assumed, while there is the possibility of a console port after the studio's experience with The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition.
