While we’re still reeling from that iconic “You’re breathtaking!” Keanu Reeves moment, there’s somehow already more good news for Cyberpunk 2077.
While the game isn’t even out yet, we’re already getting finding info on extra features to be added beyond what’s been initially revealed.
Players have been calling for a New Game+ mode to play in the sandbox of Night City with late-game equipment and skills, and today it was confirmed that option is in the works through a fan translation of a Polish magazine article that made its way onto Reddit.
According to the article, the feature is “being worked on” but unfortunately there was no clarification as to whether that means it will be available at launch or will arrive as a free update down the line.
The magazine article included a variety of details on the game systems and locations to be explored, including this tantalizing tidbit:
Skill system is huge and tailored to your style of playing. As you level up you gain progression points, which then you can use on new skills and boosting certain attributes, strength, reflex, cool, intelligence. The level of your attributes will let you install certain chips only available to each. Using one kind of weapon a lot, will also make you better at it. Same goes with melee and hacking. There are also bonus perks, passive, active, and ones activated in certain conditions.
On top of that there’s Street Cred, which you gain through completing tasks. The higher it is, the more serious and dangerous quests are available to us, as we’re more “trustworthy.”
Bringing to mind games like the later GTA entries, there will also apparently be gameplay elements available in your apartment (such as reading email messages) as well as the ability to steal cars.
Cyberpunk 2077 is due to launch on April 16, 2020. We were able to preview parts of the game at E3 2019, and it was recently revealed that the game would feature branching prologues and have an 80+GB install size.
