Cyberpunk 2077 - Official E3 2018 Trailer & Interview with Mike Pondsmith about Cyberpunk World
In anticipation of the E3 Expo (held at the LA Convention Center, June 12-14), a slew of video game trailers has hit the net (or in my field of wwvision: "Facebook" :p), one of which snagged my attention: "Cyberpunk 2077"!
(Track: “Spoiler” by DJ Hyper)
WHAT-IS: "Cyberpunk 2077 is a narrative-driven, open world RPG set in the most vibrant and dangerous metropolis of the future — Night City. You play as V, a hired gun on the rise, who just got their first serious contract. In a world of cyberenhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners and corporate life-hackers, today is your first step to becoming an urban legend."
Made by CD PROJEKT RED (creators of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt), I am unfamiliar with either the previous nor current incarnation, but am nevertheless interested in what I see here, and in many ways (and more likely the impetus for this random post), my own personal predilection for "cyberpunk" themes and eye-candy.
Check out www.cyberpunk.net (featured images via), and as well enjoy the video embedded below, which features an "interview" with Mike Pondsmith (circa 2013), for which his classic pen & paper RPG system, "Cyberpunk 2020", is "Cyberpunk 2077" based on!
