New Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay details have reportedly emerged via a German podcast
Although it’s not impossible that Cyberpunk 2077 netrunner summons could involve a minigame based on Mike Pondsmith’s tabletop universe, it has since been confirmed by a dev at CDPR that the podcast from which the details were derived was slightly mistranslated.
While the section on fantasy RPG creatures appearing on The Net in Cyberpunk was actually discussed, it appears the CDPR devs were mainly talking about Cyberpunk 2020, the game on which Cyberpunk 2077 is based. They were merely expressing nostalgic interest in their favourite parts of R. Talsorian Games’ board game, as opposed to explicitly outlining features players can expect in Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077’s take on Cyberspace was teased in last year’s gameplay demo. Otherwise, the digital hacking world has been kept largely under wraps. In the Cyberpunk tabletop game, when Netrunner characters ‘jack in’ to Cyberspace they can interpret it in several different ways, including as a classic Dungeons & Dragons maze, or as a star-filled galaxy, and deploy programs that also take on various forms. By the way, you can buy cheap Cyberpunk 2077 Items from z2u.com, where you can enjoy a 3% discount by using the code “Z2U”.
According to the Gamestar translations, 2077’s take on Cyberspace is “a bit like Skyrim meets Tron,” with fantasy-style weapons and the ability to throw fireballs or block with a shield. “It sounds like a fantasy RPG in a high-tech environment.”
The devs also confirmed in the podcast that Cyberpunk 2077 with tone down map icons. As you may recall, The Witcher 3 was jam-packed with question marks, barrel and chests icons which usually marked a place with a piece of gear or weapon. This will not be the case in Cyberpunk 2077 as it simply creates too much unnecessary work for players.
