Cyberpunk 2077 has pulled out the biggest surprise. Why don’t we see a lot of it? Parts of the game change constantly.
„The reason why you can’t really go out and show everything is that video game development is such an iterative process. What we have now might not be there tomorrow. We’ve had ideas that have died over the years then they’ve been resurrected then they’ve died again and now they’re back,” Mike Tost, CD Projekt RED’s level designer, says. We learned that Cyberpunk 2077 will be set fifty years after the source material (Cyberpunk 2020), and it will be in an alternate timeline, allowing more freedom for the Polish developers. Unfortunately, the game’s development is „far from over,” so we don’t know when the game will launch (technically…) on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
RAGE 2, which is co-developed by id Software and Avalanche Studios, got a new trailer called Wasteland Hero. The two-minute trailer shows exactly what it should be about: action, explosions, and, of course, a post-apocalyptic world. RAGE 2 is going to launch on May 14 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Judgment – which recently got a release date in the West by SEGA – also got a quick recap of its features. Ryu Ga Gotoku (Yakuza) Studio’s game isn’t exactly like a Yakuza title, but it does have a lot of resemblances, and the investigation after serial murder looks promising. Judgment hits the Western PlayStation 4s on June 25!
3D Realms, KillPixel, and 1C Entertainment announced a dark fantasy FPS, which is going to use the Quake engine. Thus, we can say that Wrath: Aeon of Ruin is running on ’96 technology, and, going by the Steam page, it will be quite a retro adventure. We’re glad, though – the fifteen-level shooter fun goes against the technological evolution, and turns back to the past (and easy modding!) instead. The PC/Mac/Linux will get the game this summer, followed by a PlayStation 4/Xbox One/Nintendo Switch port in early 2020.
