    Ooh that interview makes me even more keen for this game! :D I'm still playing The Witcher III (clearly loving it) and one of my favourite films is The Fifth Element, so I think this game will be one I sink a lot of time into. Can't wait to hear more about it.

    I love how there was a reference to Cyberpunk 2077 in The Witcher III too, details like that always make me smile.

    Details from IGN's preview.
    • CD Projekt describes the game as a "first-person RPG."
    • Gameplay is in first a first-person perspective, but switched to third-person during a cutscene.
    • You play a character named V (as in the letter).
    • V can be a man or a woman.
    • The stats you pick at the start include Strength, Constitution, Intelligence, Reflexes, Tech, and Cool.
    • These stats are all pulled from the original tabletop RPG.
    • There are no classes at the start. Instead, you evolve the class you want to be as you play instead of picking a role.
    • You can drive cars in the game, and seemingly toggle between first and third person during this.
    • While driving in first-person, the U.I. appears diegetically on the windshield.
    • You can engage in combat while driving -- AI took over steering as you lean out the window and shoot at enemies.
    • CD Projekt also described Cyberpunk as a "mature experience intended for mature audiences."
    • The goal is for you to not only engage with the game world, but with its inhabitants.
    • Like Witcher, you take missions from NPCs and have dialogue options in conversations.
    • It's an open world that you open up more with "street cred." For example, a specific jacket might raise it by 5%, allowing you access to new places.
    • Completing a quest levels up your street cred.
    • The UI in the demo is extremely minimal at -- just a light compass and a small quest log.
    • UI expands during combat -- enemies have names, health bars, and what appear to be levels.
    • Some enemies have question marks instead of levels, possibly meaning they're much higher level than you.
    • Damage numbers pop up during combat.
    • There's a bullet-time-like ability that allows you to slow down time.
    • CD Projekt keeps emphasizing that choices have consequences, in the moment and to the world at large.
    • Obstacles have several solutions depending on your skills. For example, V got to a door, but his hacking skill was too low. However, his engineering skill was high enough, so he could open a panel and bypass the door.
    • There's an inspection system lets you look super close at items and learn more about lore.
    • You use an inhaler to heal.
    • Gunplay feels slower than Doom or Borderlands, but faster than Fallout 4.
    • CD Projekt showed off some late-game abilities, including mantis-like blade arms and wall running.
    • We saw a boss fight against a dude in an exoskeleton. This included sliding under cars and taking cover.

    It all sounds very good! :thumb:

    Sounds awesome! I'm looking forward to this far more than I am Fallout 76. I just wish we knew a release date! Surely must be next year?? I'm hoping so :D

    Someone on Reddit spotted that there's a single frame after the demo with a letter from the developers...
