During a very brief E3 Coliseum panel hosted by Geoff Keighly, CD Projekt Red's Kyle Rowley, (associate design director) and Peter Gelencser (level design coordinator) took the stage to chat about some of Cyberpunk 2077's systems.

The game features first-person shooting and cover mechanics to traverse a unsafe metropolis.

While the reveal was exciting to long-time fans, the trailer raised more questions than it answered. Interestingly enough, CD Projekt Red has stated that each decision a player makes regarding these details "influence the shape of the game".

It looks as though Cyberpunk 2077 will have dismemberment.

"She takes on takes on risky jobs-he or she, actually", said Rowley.

Earlier in the day, President Donald Trump pledged to stop conducting U.S. "war games" with South Korea on the Korean Peninsula . Also, by letting North Korea dictate what the U.S. military does, Trump sends the U.S. down a slippery slope.

CD Projekt Red has described the game as an 'open-world, FPS RPG'. "And obviously you can define your, what we're calling 'Life Path.' It's like a backstory, and the things you define in your life path, in your backstory, can modify or unlock things as you're playing through the game". In a nutshell, it's a 'first-person RPG, ' they said (via IGN). Players will be able to choose between male and female characters which will be full voiced, upgradable body parts and abilities, plenty of stats, have plenty of NPCs, quests, large open-world Night City with ownable apartments, vehicles, bullet-time-like ability, nudity and some rather strong language, and more.

While the viewpoint is in the first person for shooting and moving around, driving can be done in first or third person.

Story and quest system will be similar to the Witcher 3. "Obviously in Cyberpunk 2020 there's lots of different roles you can take on: corporate, rocker boy, netrunner, techie, etc".

Create Your Own Cyberpunk - Your name is V, and you can be anyone you want to be. Learned lessons from Witcher 3. It's not clear how this system will be enforced, but CD Projekt Red says your street cred can be raised by wearing certain clothing. Players will be able to actively comment on an NPC's appearance or tattoos to butter them up, or they can end the conversation early with a "well-placed bullet".
