Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most-anticipated upcoming games of E3 2018, and so far developer CD Projekt Red (of Witcher fame), has been tight lipped about what the game will actually be like. However, at Microsoft's E3's press conference, the studio officially changed that by showing off the game and revealing some details about it.

The press conference was about to end before being "hacked" to show the first full trailer. It opened with a narrator saying poverty and other social issues had made his city the worst place to live, and yet, everyone wants to be there. It then showed a train emerging into a dazzling city of dreams, a metropolis of giant buildings adorned with dazzling screens, where organic skin is meshed with futuristic tech. The narrator describes himself as a "dreamer" before opening a case with a rifle in it. Viewers were then treated to montage of violence, with punk-stylised figures brutally attacking each other.

While it was a short trailer, it was certainly sweet. Bright and vibrant visuals and dense details brought to life a city of the future, and given that The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red is creating Cyberpunk 2077, we're expecting there will be hundreds of compelling stories to be found within. Check out the trailer above.

There wasn't any gameplay, but this was a good trailer for setting the tone. The first teaser took place in a dark alleyway where a bounty hunter-like figure was about to kill someone, this felt drastically different.

Cyberpunk 2077 was first announced six years ago. It is an RPG that is at least loosely based on Mike Pondsmith's tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020. The game is set in a "dark future" of 2077 where advanced technologies have become both "the salvation and the curse of humanity." The game promises a nonlinear story designed for "mature" players and is set in the metropolis of Night City. According to CD Projekt Red, it will have some sandbox elements and a form of multiplayer.

The studio has taken steps to stress that Cyberpunk 2077 is a "true RPG" and definitely not a multiplayer shooter. There's no confirmed release date, but the game will come out for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
