Cyberpunk 2077: No More Wallrunning [VIDEO]

CD Projekt RED‘s explanation behind the function’s removal is somewhat weird.

The game development has a lot of iteration (frankly, all creative work requires changing things along the way…), so there could be functions, features that are seen in an earlier build of the game but not in the final, retail version. The Polish dev team’s game is also going through the same hoops: it’s official – the wall-running has been removed from Cyberpunk 2077.

„Ah, the wall-running. That is something that we removed due to design reasons, but there’s still going to be a lot of flexibility in how you move, that’s for sure,” Max Pears, one of the level designers (who yesterday talked about playing the game Grand Theft Auto-style), told GameReactor. Say goodbye to the Titanfall-style wall-running.

CD Projekt RED revealed on Twitter that Cyberpunk 2077 will have digital content for the physical version (which itself will have stickers, Night City postcards, a reversible cover, and a world compendium). The digital bonuses include the already announced original compositions (not the licensed music but those that were specifically produced for this game), an artbook, a sourcebook (as the game is based on a tabletop RPG), wallpapers, and a new addition – a comic called Cyberpunk 2077: Your Voice.

CD Projekt RED contains the traditions: The Witcher 3 also had a lot of goodies in the physical version (stickers, map, soundtrack CD…). Speaking of comics, in September, Dark Horse will start another series called Cyberpunk 2077: Trauma Team, featuring Nadia, an EMT who gets involved in the strange events around her in Night City.

The Poles are also working together with a band (called Refused) for an in-game band, Samurai, whose logo is on the protagonist’s jacket collar. There’s a new song from them, The Ballad of Buck Ravers, which was found via the limited edition controllers’ QR code on the back of them. This is the third song after Never Fade Away and Chippin’ In. All are supervised by CD Projekt RED’s music team’s Marcin Przybyłowicz.

Cyberpunk 2077 launches on November 19 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Google Stadia, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X trio will receive it later.
