The company adheres to the same scheme as in 2018.
Almost immediately after the Cyberpunk 2077 was shown at the Microsoft conference, a review video of the collector’s edition appeared on the YouTube channel of the game.
A total of several files are stored on the server . One of them is a picture with noise, after which you can see the updated version of GOG Galaxy, about which CD Projekt already described earlier. It will allow you to combine games from other launchers and even consoles in the GOG library.
The most important among the files is the hidden message from the developers, left in a simple text file readme.txt. In it, they reported that the demonstration of a new gameplay demo for all will be held in August.
Finally, after long months of preparation, we are ready to share with you two important announcements over which we have worked tirelessly – a cinematic trailer and a completely new gameplay demo! Yes, yes, we know, at the moment, the demo is available only to those lucky ones who got to E3, and all the rest of you will have to wait for Gamescom or broadcast on PAX in August.
Yes, we already hear the upcoming storm of your indignation in the network. “Why are you doing this dishonest with us?”, “Why not show the gameplay right now?”. The reason is that we have invested months of our own work in creating a demo version and the first public demonstration of gameplay at E3 and Gamescom. To show the demo version right now is to deprive our presentation of the upcoming Gamescom and deprive ourselves of the opportunity to increase the excitement around the game.
Why increase the hype? To attract more players and, we hope, convince them to play our game. We put our hearts and souls into making a truly great game out of Cyberpunk 2077, and we would like as many players as possible to know about it and be able to touch this incredible experience. Moreover, the excitement will raise sales (after all, we are not charity), and good sales will allow us to grow, take creative risks and create new, great games for you.
And let’s not forget about another important news – the release date. Less than a year later, on April 16, 2020, you will finally be able to sip your teeth into Cyberpunk 2077.
As you can see, we have prepared two types of publications for the game. Why just two? Because when we order something ourselves, we don’t like to run to Wikipedia to compare content. Our conditions are simple: here is the standard edition, which will get the majority of players, and here is the collector’s edition. And although we are very proud of the collection edition, we would like to draw your attention to the first option.
Why? Because we tried to fill it with various souvenirs to the brim! We believe that this makes the publication more valuable, and we hope that you share our point of view. Also, after opening a pre-order, you might think whether to do it right now. Yes, if you want to support us. Pre-orders help us to be confident in the release – the more pre-orders we receive, the more copies (digital and physical) go on sale at the exit.
So, if you liked what you saw – vote financially for Cyberpunk 2077. If you are still in doubt, then it’s better to wait for upcoming reviews and new materials on the game. We want you to enjoy Cyberpunk 2077 and not regret the pre-order.
Take care of yourself and see you on the streets of Knight City!
Apparently, the company operates in the same way as in 2018. Then CD Projekt RED also showed the Cyberpunk 2077 demo, first at a closed presentation during E3, and then to the whole world at Gamescom.
The release of Cyberpunk 2077 was scheduled for April 16, 2020, and this is a rather cautious release date, which certainly takes into account possible delays in the final stages.
