As was announced, CD Projekt RED presented yesterday almost fifteen-minute Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay. Up to that point, the gameplay was seen only by participants of the E3 2019, because its show in Los Angeles took place behind closed doors. The material presents several key mechanics such as combat, motorcycle riding, skill trees and character interaction. An interesting fact is that the gameplay, which was released yesterday, was recorded using ray tracing technology on the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GPU. That's the information Nvidia gave via Twitter.
The fact that Cyberpunk 2077 will enable the use of the technology has been known for some time now. So far, however, we have seen mainly screenshots, not the actual gameplay. After Nvidia boasted on Twitter that the new gameplay presented ray tracing in the game, there were many negative voices. On Reddit, the players point out that the game was downgraded in comparison to last year's materials. Remember, however, that this is still an unfinished version of the game and ray tracing will probably be improved.
Anyway, it was worth waiting for a broader presentation of the material. The multitude of solutions, character creation and great ideas for presenting the world and involving the player in it are impressive. Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on April 16, 2020 and will be available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
