While EA Play might have been yesterday, the real E3 (Real3? no, that’s terrible) starts today. it truly begins when the first big conference kicks off, and today is that day. Microsoft will be teeing it all off with their conference on Xbox both present and maybe even future. It’s going to be a busy week, but we are ready.
It looks like this year’s Microsoft Xbox conference could be a big one, with a plethora of new studios, two new consoles, and heaps of games to talk about, it should be around two hours long. Good news for those who like long things, bad news for those who like sleep.
Microsoft’s Xbox conference will be kicking off at 9 pm BST (That’s 1 pm Pacific, 4 pm Eastern, and 9 pm CEST, for those of you not stuck in the UK)
Last year Microsoft made a big show of all the studios they had acquired, which means this year could have them showing off why they invested all that money. While the development cycle means we are unlikely to see any games for this generation of consoles from these studios, it could well be that they are all busy working away on the next generation.
Actually, it could well be that a large portion of the Microsoft Xbox Conference this year is looking to the future and unveiling some of the details of the upcoming consoles. There are meant to be two separate models, so it will be very interesting to see just what they do and why there are two of them.
Cyberpunk 2077 – What We Know So Far
Cyberpunk 2077 is the latest game from CD Projekt Red, who are the developers behind The Witcher series of games. Cyberpunk 2077 is their latest adaption and has them taking on the tall task of adapting the tabletop RPG Cyberpunk 2020. In this world, the US government has collapsed and chaos reigns as a result.
The game is going to be a first-person shooter that will be filled to the eyeball augments with choices, unknown consequences, and swearing probably.
You get to play as a character known as V, who can either look male or female. You get to control the choices they make and carve your own way through the dystopian future in which the game is set. Everyone is augmented with high-tech upgrades and violence and corruption runs rampant.
So far we know that the game will have skills to use, a bullet time effect, and some incredibly powerful weapons. The combat that has been shown is incredibly fast-paced and very entertaining to watch, so you can expect it to be pretty intense when you’re in control.
Also, everything is pink.
Cyberpunk 2077 – Release Date
So far there is no news on when the game is releasing apart from the fact that it won’t be this year.
Given how advanced both the graphics and the systems are, it wouldn’t be too surprising to see it launching towards the end of 2020.
CD Projekt Red has also said there will be no beta tests or demos either, as they will be doing the testing in house. This means that you’re unlikely to get your hands on it until it officially releases.
