Cyberpunk 2077 Gameplay Reveal

Developer CD Projekt Red offered a public reveal of an extensive gameplay of upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 recently.

After their successful stint with The Witcher series, Polish developer/publisher company CD Projekt Red has focused their efforts on a new upcoming role-playing game, Cyberpunk 2077 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We are already way past a teaser trailer followed by another E3 2018 trailer back in June to receive some details of the game. What we really lacked until this point was a look at the in-game footage of how it plays out and we finally have a gameplay reveal here.

Below is a 48 minutes-long gameplay walkthrough from Cyberpunk 2077 that takes us for ride to the dystopian future we were eager to get into.

The developers chose to play the game's key character V as a female for the demonstration as she goes into a mission at an early point of the game with her friend Jackie to retrieve a girl aided by a NetRunner named T-Bug. Her locator implant goes off and now breached into a secret facility of some sort where apparently, a group of scavengers are trying to harvest implants from people by kidnapping them. They come across one of them inside and took him down without making any noise.

As she goes inside, more goons appear and gunfire ensues between two parties. We then see V using cover and then a reflex booster that allows player to use ability called Kereznikov. This lets one to experience a brief time freeze to perform attack like an amazing bullet time effect from The Matrix movie. They manage to take down the last one of them and secure the target before calling in an emergency evacuation unit to get the girl. A Trauma Team then arrives and leaves with her.

We actually have a lot more than we expected and in a video clip of nearly an hour long, there was a lot to notice and miss at the same time. Already on talk of the town menu, the game spiked an interest of every RPG lovers ever since the teaser dropped and upon releasing of some stunning screenshots, they've just lost their minds. Though skeptical at first, CD Projekt Red decided not to make them wait too much for some exclusive look into the open world of Night City.

It may sound quite odd that Cyberpunk 2077 was originally announced back in 2012, even years before The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt came out. Then it took another six years for them to make it to E3 this year. There, they showcased a similarly long demo of in-game footage to a selective audience and they were quite hesitant to reveal the video for public because it is from an early phase of development process and the finished product may not play out the same as you saw in this clip.

Debuted on Twitch, it was on the top of the live video streaming platform and then made its way to the game's official YouTube channel and we then decided to dive down. When their Twitch feed initially started to spew out a series of random characters and numbers over a black background, Reddit users have predicted this as a new trailer because of its cryptic nature but then it turned out to be a major display of the gameplay demo that was shown behind closed doors at E3 and Gamescom 2018.

Capcom May Remake Resident Evil Remaster

While the world waits for the release of Resident Evil 2 Remake, Capcom is considering more remake projects.

Before they made a showcase of Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 press conference to an overwhelmingly positive response, even developer/publisher Capcom may not have thought that it could work out so good for them and now they are interested to keep rolling.

We heard jokes about their plan of making a remake of the 2015's remaster version of the original zombie shooter game Resident Evil of 1996 but apparently, developers at Capcom were not kidding about it at all.

Despite the temporary debacle regarding an overpriced typewriter included in the $900 worth Premium Edition of the game, fans have been nothing else but extremely supportive towards the upcoming release and that tells the company how much crazy people are over the world about the RE franchise.

Capcom even attempted of teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake by Tweeting an image of the game's villain Nemesis from their official Twitter account on Friday the 13th of July this year.

Needless to say, this Tweet has also ignited fire to fan's hype over more Remake projects on RE games in the future and Capcom neither defended nor denied the claim. During Gamescom 2018, director Kazunori Kadoi talks about their plans in an interview and says that, they are only concerned about January 25 right now.

Of course, they would love to explore the possibilities in future with other potential classic titles but at this very moment, they are not willing to commit to anything in advance.

He believes that enough time has passed that they can remake the Resident Evil HD Remaster version and it won't look ridiculous. Besides, the idea of remake the remake is something they would love to work with and that is not for the sake of milking the franchise.

So much more could be done with a revamped fan-favorite game without feeding to nostalgia. A generation wide gap could bridge up between modern day players and seasoned veterans of Resident Evil series.

"Certainly enough time has passed that it wouldn’t be laughable to remake the remake. I personally think that would be an interesting thing to do."

Capcom also requests fans to not call the 2019's upcoming game as a remake, because they are simply revisiting old settings with a slightly altered storyline. Familiar faces like Claire Redfield and Sherry Birkin are being reimagined 20 years after their original debut.

Experience of the Spencer Mansion and Racoon City Police Department are brought back for fans to revisit. Since the 2002 HD Remaster is acclaimed for graphics and gameplay, they want to slightly tinker with that for improvement.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Premium Edition Announced

If Capcom wants people to go back to the roots of their survival horror legacy from the very beginning with Resident Evil 2 Remake, it essentially isn't a bad thing at all. Games like Resident Evil Zero and Resident Evil 4 would probably top at most fan's remake list when they do.

At least, it would allow players to enjoy those classic titles on modern day gaming platforms like PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X.

OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Delayed for Consoles

At Gamescom 2018, Starbreeze Studios has announced that OVERKILL's The Walking Dead will be delayed to 2019 for consoles.

During the E3 2018 press conference, developer studio Overkill Software have made a great impact on the eager fans with a gameplay reveal trailer right after they released a series of trailers to introduce all playable characters of the game.

For long, the project has been in a confusing state on development but then it all started to sort down for good earlier this year. Players were very pleased with the first look of gameplay and wanting for more, which also created huge waiting lines at Gamescom 2018 to experience the game. Apparently, publisher 505 Games holds the publishing rights of consoles have decided to make this unexpected delay but Starbreeze Studios decided to stay with their original release date on PC.

Their stated reason for postponing the launch on PS4 and Xbox One is to guarantee concurrent release on digital platforms and stores to ensure maximized sales. So, until console owners can join in hunting down walkers next year, players on PC will have to get through the outbreak alone. If the title initially manages to get favorable reviews, it will spike interest of players on other platform but if it fails to impress, then another anticipating audience base will lost their overall hype.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world based on the fictional work of creator Robert Kirkman (Battle Pope, Haunt), which is The Walking Dead monthly comic-book series from Image Comics, Overkill Software envisioned a new plot for the ever expanding universe of games derived from the franchise. Despite being a first-person shooter, OVERKILL's The Walking Dead mostly focuses on cooperative play for a more engaging experience for everyone.

Darksiders 3 Gamescom 2018 Trailer

New action-packed trailer of Darksiders III at Gamescom 2018 features Fury alongide her Horsemen brothers.

After two fan-favorite installments, what Darksiders franchise suffered is a six year-long gap when THQ was completely bankrupt in 2012. However, things came back in track when Gunfire Games took charge of development for the third game of the series and thus, came hack and slash action-adventure Darksiders III. We are only three months away from the title to release on November 27 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One while GamesCom 2018 brought us a brand-new trailer.

The trailer is a mix of the story focusing on Fury, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and some of her actions within the game.

Fury is tasked to hunt down Seven Deadly Sins on a ravaged Earth, where she unleashes her true nature to slay down beasts of all sorts that came in her way. During her mission set by the Charred Council, she came across some giant bizarre creatures, which are possibly the boss characters and we see her excellent combat skills with her long-range whip. It is safe to admit that Fury packs a better move set than her brothers considering their usability in combat and they are far more practical too.

Fraction of her gameplay footage also showcases surroundings from a ruined world and demonic entities that inherits it now. One other thing to notice here is that, the gameplay mechanics have improved to make all of her moves fluid smooth. At one point, she is also met by Horseman War and Death but what significance they bring to her story is still unclear. This might also be from a flashback sequence that is to serve as part of back-story for protagonist Fury to visit Earth.
