Wow... can I just say that... Everything about this game looks pretty much amazing. I know I'm supposed to be talking about good and bad, but
Set in a city called Night City, you make your way through a hustling bustling future California metropolis teeming with life. Every corner has something for you to see, interact with, talk to, and just admire. It's amazing how they were able to depict the first future city that I can (
To get yourself caught up, you can check out the video we are talking about right here:
The graphics are gritty, futuristic, and punk all at the same time. You can feel the city being alive in every aspect. People walking around, shop owners, different stores, mission givers, arcades, and more.The world is totally interactive. Every single aspect of the city looks and feels amazing. That is exactly what every RPG out there should emulate.
We can expect this kind of
I think it is safe to say this'll be the first game where I ever go ahead and create a famale character. Wow.
They killed it with this. From the futuristic looking cuts and augmentations in the skin, to the hair, eyes, and pretty much everything else, these character models look stunning.
Usually, you don't expect this level of amazing with a game where you can create a character. It is usually one of the things you need to get over and accept as an RPG player. Not here. These character models look top knotch. From the characters you play, to the NPC's floating around the city waiting to talk to you (or sell you something).
Not only are there (seemingly) a ton of options out there when it comes to clothing. Not only that, but instead of just looks, armor, and all the regular, your clothing will give you street cred - a stat in the game that influences the way others react around you.
Seems pretty cool. Bringing another touch of reality to the game even in the clothing that you wear.
The demo opened up with a scene where you are moving in on a compound of enemies who are trying to scavenge technology from the bodies of citizens. You end up in a few firefights that feel good.
Enemies screaming and
I love that they went the Gears of War route with it and I'm to stay away from the laser cannons and pistols, which were never a satisfying replacement for a nice holo point bullet, anyway, right?
Wow,,, did I just say, driving? Wow.
The car you seem to drive is a super powered sport scar. You can explore the city freely in tons of different cars, bikes, and other vehicles from what they are saying. An exciting element to a shooter RPG that we have not seen much of before.
Night City seems like one of the most realistic and alive video game environments in an RPG that we have ever seen.
Granted, this was a dictated and planned out initial look, but, damn, the game looks good.
Very excited to get our hands on this one when it drops.
Until next time,
