Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt RED’s upcoming action-RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, will have a completely seamless open world, with no loading screens.

CD Projekt RED’s associate design director, Kyle Rowley, spoke to fans via discord (by way of Spieltimes). The question was, “Will there be loading screens from area to area?”. To which, Rowley replied, “No loading screens after the initial load into the game.”

This obviously means after the game has initially booted up. When in the world of Cyberpunk 2077, players will not be interrupted by loading screens between areas.

In CD Projekt RED’s other colossal action-RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the world had different HUBS, so it wasn’t a truly seamless open world.

It’s pretty impressive, given that the game’s setting is a huge futuristic city, with multiple buildings to go inside, and complete freedom to explore.

This year’s E3 featured an exciting trailer for Cyberpunk 2077, which sheds light on what you’ll be doing in the game.

It was revealed to be completely in first-person, and will feature diverse romance options.

The game doesn’t have a set release date at the moment, but will be out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
