New Cyberpunk 2077 trailer shows off Night City in all its chaos

CD Projekt RED debuted a brand new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 that spotlights the game's crazy setting.


Developer CD Projekt RED held a Night City Wire event where they revealed a brand new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077. The trailer centers on the game’s characters, as well as Night City itself. We see the violence and chaos that reeks the city, as well as the over-the-top action that players will be able to jump in. Take a look at the new trailer for yourself below.

In the trailer, we get a look at what life is like in Cyberpunk 2077’s Night City. This futuristic city is home to a variety of unique districts, all with their own distinct environments and settings. The trailer also highlights the colorful cast of characters and the madness that they get into. We see a couple of women beating down a random guy on the sidewalk, as well as characters in a club enjoying some adult entertainment. 

The trailer also gives us a glimpse at a story mission involving some sort of espionage at Arasaka Tower. We’re then shown a sizzle reel of gameplay in Cyberpunk 2077. This includes combat, as we can see players using a variety of weapons, taking out enemies and even dismembering some of them. We also see a player shooting out of a moving vehicle at an enemy, causing them to crash. The trailer also gives us our first good look at The Badlands, a desert-like area on the outskirts of Night City. 

The gameplay trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 was chock-full of new details and tidbits. It only runs for about two minutes, but you can probably freeze every other frame and find something worth talking about. The end of the trailer also teases Keanu Reeve’s role in the story, which was originally teased last year at E3. CD Projekt RED plans to hold more Night City Wire events in the future. Stay tuned as we’ll be unpacking it all for you right here on Shacknews.
