CD Projekt Red – April 2020 – PS4, Xbox One, PC
CD Projekt Red, the Polish developer that made a name for itself because of the Witcher franchise returns in 2020 with their immensely hyped game called Cyberpunk 2077. We’re still months away, but could this be an opportunity worth investing in?
Cyberpunk 2077 is a science-fiction game that takes place in the future, in a city called Night City. You’re a mercenary -or rather, cyborg- called V, who is meddling with the affairs of some underground people. Night City is named after its inventor, but has a lot of violence, over-crowdedness, and drug-abuse.
History has been something in the Assassin’s Creed games that takes a prominent position, same with Odyssey. It almost feels like you’re walking ancient Greece as you spot legendary landmarks and meet famous persons. The characters feel real and the vibrant colours even make the world lively.
Taking a stealthy approach or fighting multiple enemies at once using combos: it’s up to you. A game with the word assassin in it invites you to choose option A quicker though.
The leveling system and tier-ranked items are back, with a lot of them to be acquired and some with better stats than others, letting you choose your appearance and play-style.
Abilities that focus on three different categories including hunter, warrior, and assassin, each benefitting the different play-styles they are named after.
Naval battles have returned as well and the game features the option of adding crew and leaders to your ship, enhancing your battles at sea.
The open world has you exploring, questing, and enjoying the lands that are called Greece.
Why it might be worth investing in

- CD Projekt Red is known for delivering high-quality entertainment
