    I know that a number of have been interested in this game, but up until now the details have been almost zero. However, while there aren't many specifics, we're getting a little here and there from the developers now.

    CDPR President recently had a few things to say about the game at a company conference:

    https://www.dualshockers.com/cyberpunk-2077-detils/

    Bullet points include:

    -Cross generational potential, should the PS5 or future XBOX come out around time of release
    -Character Creation system
    -Multiple character classes
    -Intense, story driven, single player RPG
    -No microtransactions, no hidden payments of any kind
    -Different from The Witcher, in that there is no predefined character, a futuristic world, and 3D movement

    -Also, they aren't focusing on the Switch. PS4 and PC were specifics mentioned.

    Other than sports titles, its probably the only game I'm deeply interested in that's going to be released before 2020. TES6 and DA4 are both at some level of production, and I'm more interested in both, but who knows when they'll see the light of day. On the other hand, we're likely to get a lot about this one this year, starting with E3 in May.

    CDPR did a magnificant job with TW3 in all ways. I'm very curious and hopeful about this one. However, its all still pretty mysterious. Until we see more of what its actually about and what the gameplay is like, I'm in an optimistic wait and see mode.

    I loved the PnP world...so if they can in any way bring it to life I will be thrilled. Should be a great opportunity to tell a story and get you hooked..I’m definitely optimistic for this one since CDPR haven’t let me down yet.

    Some real news about the world of the game! The broad landscape and ideas, the people, and the character classes. It seems like you might be able to get a different story and starting point based on the class that you choose, which is both cool and great for multiple playthroughs.

    I do too. CDPR did such a wonderful job with TW3, that I feel that they will. The gameplay and character models should be top notch. My only question will be how much I'm interested in the game's world, and it looks good so far. A bit dark, but that was expected. Doesn't seem quite as far in that direction as Fallout, which is good.

    I've never played The Witcher. It's on my list though.

    I only played the third one, but it is quite possibly the greatest video game ever created. No hyperbole. The characters and story are better than most major Hollywood movies, and everything else about the game is deep and well crafted.

    AND CDPR goes out of their way to fix all issues ASAP, and to be open and transparent with gamers the whole time. Its fantastic.

    It’s pretty different from fallout..no apocalypse so technology advances a LOT. Think more Blade Runner/Minority Report. With social decay being the theme vs actual decay.

    Lot of news out there that the game will get a big reveal at E3 in a few weeks, and a major marketing push after that. Could be released early 2019.

    So they had a deal for The Witcher 3 and the two expansions this weekend so I bought it. I'm only about 1 hr into it, but if it keeps up this is definitely a must have game for anyone. I bought it, in part, due to your glowing review. Thanks!

    Do you get lost in the story of 3 if you haven't played 1 and 2?

    You can absolutely enjoy the game without playing the first two. I never have. You'll learn everything that you need to know as you go along. Doing a little bit of backstory reading online may be helpful, but isn't required.

    My advice when digging into the game, without spoiling anything is to:

    A) Make sure you get all of the patches and updates first. You almost certainly will, but just in case, this is important. After the initial release, they fixed and updated a bunch of things that make the game work better.

    B) Take your time, and explore areas that you visit before moving on. You'll uncover a lot that would otherwise be hidden and not obvious.

    C) There will be secondary quests along the way that you can choose not to do. I recommend doing as many as possible both because they're almost all well written and add to the depth and enjoyment of the game, and will teach you more about the characters. But also because doing quests at or above your own current level will give you the maximum XP. If you wait, the quest might disappear entirely, or you might be able to do it but won't get the experience benefit.

    However, again don't rush to try to complete everything ASAP. Most of the time, you'll be able to choose to go back and do something if you move in another direction instead. There are a handful of major checkpoints that serve as crossroads in the game, and sometimes they'll effect what you can and cannot do, but most of the time this is pretty obvious and you'll notice warnings.

    If you dig into all there is to see and do, the game is absolutely huge, and none of it is filler.
