Cyberpunk 2077 trailer released, doesn't disappoint

The highly anticipated trailer for Cyperpunk 2077 made its grand debut today and it didn't disappoint. The new CG trailer shows the Night City Police, with the help of a member of an elite police force called Psychosquad, attempt to stop a woman on a rampage due to the amount of cybermodifications in her body. Sound cyberpunk enough for you?

To help explain the events unfolding in the video, Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED, setup the scene:

The teaser shows how the Psycho Squad might acquire a new member. The Psycho Squad specializes in combating “psychos” – individuals who overuse implants and substances that boost or otherwise alter the human body. There comes a point when they overdose on these innovations, and their bodies start to rebel against their biological body parts as well as against all things organic around them. Simply put, they start killing people, who they now derisively call 'meatbags.'

When a psycho goes on the rampage, strange things can happen. There’s going to be a lot of carnage, so the psycho might be taken down by regular police, but they’re not always able to get the job done. When things spin out of control, they call in MAX-TAC (Maximum Force Tactical Division), popularly called the 'Psycho Squad'. And these guys are exceptional, these guys are crack troops. The fact that they’re proud of that name tells you a bit about their mindset. They wear a badge with their official emblem on their right sleeve, but their left is reserved for their unofficial Psycho Squad emblem. It’s primitively made and the image itself is on the crude side of things. It’s not unlike a badge special force operators might make and wear to distinguish themselves from the ranks of grunts in any theatre of war.

If you couldn't tell by the trailer, Cyberpunk 2077 is mature-themed sandbox RPG featuring futuristic weapons, implants, and gadgets. It takes place in the fictional Night City, located alongside California's coast. Like the developer's The Witcher series, player's decisions throughout the game will affect the storyline. Players will have a chance to roam the open-world environment and visit iconic places based on the popular pen-and-paper RPB Cyberpunk 2020.

The trailer didn't say a reveal a release date, simply saying "Coming: When it's ready." There was also no mention of platforms.
