Watch the Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire Episode 2 livestream here

Night City Wire Episode 2 is happening this week and players can check out the latst Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay livestream right here.


Night City Wire Episode 2 will be the next time players get more news on Cyberpunk 2077. The team over at CD Projekt Red have more to whet our appetite before the game releases later in the year. You can watch the Night City Wire Episode 2 livestream right here!

Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire Episode 2

The Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire Episode 2 livestream is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 10, 2020, at 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET. There’s no knowing exactly how long this livestream will last, but judging by the previous episode, viewers should anticipate about 30 minutes’ worth of content.

For Episode 2 of Night City Wire, players can expect news on lifepaths, the different types of weapons, as well as how Refused (the real-world band) transformed into SAMURAI (the in-game band). This will likely give players more of an idea about how their character will evolve over time based on the decisions made.

Probably the most important part of this demonstration will be the weapons. Because Cyberpunk 2077 is in a first-person perspective, the gunplay becomes the tools with which players interact with the content. If the game is to feel good to play, the gunplay needs to be impeccable.

So far, we’ve seen a handful of weapons ranging from pistols and submachine guns, to shotguns. Hopefully this episode will dive a bit more into the more sci-fi aspects of the weaponry, and even show off things like modifications.

For those that are still getting caught up to speed, the previous episode touched on a new mechanic called Braindance. This allows the player to essentially see the world through the eyes of an NPC by reliving their memories in order to investigate a crime, location, and more.

One more interesting tidbit that came out after the previous episode is that players will be able to customize their character’s genitals. We’re truly living in the future now.

      Corporate goon that goes rogue looks the most interesting to me.

        Thought for sure I’d be going nomad but yea I like the corporate angle

          I think I like the idea of the nomad start for the first playthrough. Starting the game out in the open and only seeing Night City from afar, and then progressing to entering the city seems appropriate.

            I probably will stick w my original reasoning of starting as an outsider/nomad since I’ll also personally be an outsider to the game and setting and mechanics. I like what you said too

            the other 2 classes story-wise know how shit works in NC and it might take me out of it as I fumble around figuring shit out

      I haven't seen any population / npc density like the original reveal in any of these recent vids. Streets or interiors, just a couple of dudes here and there. No crowds at all, even the bars are empty. That campfire scene out in the desert is like the most I've seen in one place since.

        the question for me is what can you do with random NPCs? do they just spawn, walk somewhere, maybe say some voice lines if you bump into them, and despawn when you get too far?

        It's more realistic--the people are social distancing

        Agreed. I'd rather go from 4k to 1440p to get those people back. Hell, as a 1080P TV owner, I'd be fine with 1080p to get those people back.

        Combat seems off too. Expectations are so high on this game though. I feel it’s going to be like Skyrim with a lot of random combat jank.
