Developer CD Projekt Red is eyeing a strong follow-up to its successful game “The Witcher 3” as it released “Cyberpunk 2077.” The former is an open-world adventure set in a medieval world, while the latter is futuristic in nature.

“The Witcher 3” was praised for its gameplay as much as it was liked for the game’s “massive size” which was a combination of the number of side quests the player can do and the content. Players are hoping that “Cyberpunk 2077” will follow suit, but the studio revealed there’s no such chance. There is a trade-off, though.

Producer Richard Borzymowski revealed during CDPR’s Gamescom press conference that the game may have a smaller map than “The Witcher 3,” but it makes up for that in sheer size of content, , MP1st reported. In his explanation, it was “taking the world of 'The Witcher'” and compressing it, taking out any part that can be omitted without sacrificing content.

But the content which “Cyberpunk 2077” brings is second-to-none, and it is visible from new screenshots which have been released at Gamescom. Segment Next noted that these screenshots are of places in the game where the player character will often be seeing himself in.

These different screenshots also focused on different parts of the game. There are shots which show off combat, display dialogue, and various other stills that portray the city and its population all in its game beauty. Each screenshot showcases the type of environment CD Projekt Red has crafted.

The world of “Cyberpunk 2077” displays a kind of dirty, crowded, urban metropolis known as Night City. It is a futuristic place where the contrast between rich and poor is displayed clearly. The screenshots display a lot of detail, as well as a huge amount of trash fitting the kind of neighborhood Night City is in.

Players will be able to visit these areas for themselves when the game comes out in April 2020. Those that cannot wait, however, will have to settle for the different displays and reveals that CD Projekt Red plans to release to fuel the hype for the game.
