Cyberpunk 2077's World Map Possibly Revealed In Art Book
Our first glimpse at the map for CD Projekt Red's upcoming sci-fi RPG.
The overall size of the map in Cyberpunk 2077 certainly seems like it will be smaller than the one seen in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt--if a screenshot of a new art book is anything to go by. If accurate, the art book may have provided the first glimpse of the tangle of streets that make up Cyberpunk 2077's in-game world.
The World of Cyberpunk 2077, a 192-page art book published by Dark Horse Books, is available now to pre-order on Amazon. The $100 Deluxe Edition, which comes with a bevy of stickers and a Johnny Silverhand poster, seemingly reveals a portion of Cyberpunk 2077's map on its cover. The game's map cuts off at the top, so it's unclear if this is where the world in-game ends or if there is more to explore beyond this point.
CDPR has said that Cyberpunk 2077 will feature a "denser" map than The Witcher 3, telling Gamesradar that the upcoming open-world first-person shooter might be a little smaller than the studio's previous games but is packed with much more content.
"If you look at pure surface, right--square kilometres--then Cyberpunk 2077 might be a little bit smaller than The Witcher 3," said producer Richard Borzymowski. "But when it comes to the density of content, you basically take the world of The Witcher and squeeze it right in, deleting the wilderness between this."
In other Cyberpunk 2077 news, CDPR has announced that the game will receive online multiplayer at some point after the game releases. While there's no confirmation on when multiplayer will come to Cyberpunk 2077, the studio did state in an earnings report that some form of microtransactions in the works.
