Cyberpunk 2077 Removes Wall-Running Feature

CD Projekt Red has scrapped wall-running gameplay feature for Cyberpunk 2077 due to design reasons.

Even after a series of delays, upcoming role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 remains one of the most-anticipated releases of developer/publisher CD Projekt Red for this year on Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.

CDPR has teased a bunch of gameplay aspects of CP2077 in a recent Night City Wire broadcast stream and there was a wall-running feature previously shown in a demo that seem to have been removed from current build of the game.

Following recent gameplay showcase, some players noticed that some core mechanics like driving and shooting feels more off. While newly introduced Braindance mode seemed really impressive, one particular element got cut out.

It was revealed during a recent interview with Cyberpunk 2077 level designer Max Pears that player characters will not have the ability to run on walls as indicated in early videos and it has since been removed due to "design reasons".

An extended gameplay reveal video from Gamescom 2018 showed mercenary V putting wall-running ability into use. Pears states, although vertical traversal is now removed, players will still have plenty of flexibility in your movement.

Cyberpunk 2077 is currently set to arrive on November 17, 2020 for all current-gen consoles and Windows PC. A free backward compatibility upgrade for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will be released by CD Projekt Red this holiday season.
