Let’s start with the good news because you’re going to need it: CD Projekt Red did indeed bring Cyberpunk 2077 to E3 2018, and its trailer is a glorious introduction to a Blade Runner-esque dystopian future full of cyborgs, fantastic technology, and shocking violence.
The bad news? The “online elements” that we had heard about and the multiplayer that we had hoped for were nowhere present, at least from what the studio discussed in a semi-hidden wall of text that was embedded into the trailer. In fact, Cyberpunk 2077 is being billed as a “true single player, story-driven RPG” without any microtransactions or DRM.
We might hear more from the actual show floor, but in the meanwhile, check out the trailer after the break!
