First Cyberpunk 2077 trailer shoots up Night City

This CGI trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 is high on slow-mo style and low on indications of how it will play... But it's two more minutes of video hinting at the new sci-fi game from The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red than we had before. And that's a win to us.

The two-minute trailer depicts maybe .2 seconds of a "psycho" being unsuccessfully apprehended by your typical dystopian riot squad--psychos are what the kids call people cybernetically augmented to the point that their bodies are barely under their own control.

Then a friendly neighborhood "Psycho Squad" police force member recruits her to the cause with what we assume is a very persuasive bullet to the brain case.

Like we said, the trailer is light on details, though it left us with a strong inkling that players will likely wear the badge just like good old Rick Deckard for at least a part of Cyberpunk 2077's campaign.

    It's a pity that the trailer A) isn't how the game's actually going to look, at least on consoles- I've got no idea about PCs- or B) tells us nothing really about the gameplay, unless we're supposed to infer from him appearing silently behind her that's going to be a stealth. Unfortunately, I love mystery, so I'm super-pumped for this despite knowing nothing about it.

    All it really does is establish the tone and visual style of the universe, but it does that so well that I've watched trailer four times today.

    Well that's why they call it a teaser trailer. =P Anyway, i heard it's going to be released on the next gen consoles, so might look almost as good as the cinematic. At the least, it should look as amazing (if not more) than the PC version of Witcher 2. It's gonna use the same engine.

    Definitely looking forward to this. Cyberpunk is awesome, when it is done right.

    Obvious manual polish aside, this level of detail is not unattainable with today's high-end GPUs. Far Cry 3, for example, shows reatraint with glow and lightning befitting it's realistic setting. If you take FC3's engine and dial eye-candy to 11 I think you'd end with something similar to this.

    I'm not one that has experienced the talent of CD Projekt Red before, but this looks like a very interesting world to explore. Reminds me a helluva lot of Deus Ex, for obvious reason, and HR was my GOTY in 2011 so that's a good thing. And if it plays more like an RPG, all the better.
