In a recent interview, CD PROJEKT RED revealed new details about Cyberpunk 2077 as the game’s April 2020 release date quickly approaches.

Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated games to release next year, as players have been waiting since 2013 for it to finally come out.

And while we have gotten several incredible trailers, including the infamous Keanu Reeves announcement at E3 2019, there hasn’t been much detail about the games design – until now.

Much bigger than just Night City

Sitting down with gaming website WCCFtech, CD PROJEKT RED UI Coordinator Alvin Liu revealed that Cyberpunk’s world is bigger than just Night City, and that players can explore the map similar to The Witcher 3. “You’ll be able to go out in the desert of California and view things like power plants, abandoned highways and stuff like that. So you’re not just limited to Night City.”

He also assured players that there will not be any areas gated off in the city, although there will be territories with higher level enemies and NPCs that players might want to avoid.

Cyberpunk 2077 will have dynamic weather

One of the more interesting reveals is that the world of Cyberpunk will have dynamic weather systems, which will include “acid rain” due to the rampant pollution from the city. Inhabitants will scatter to take shelter in these situations. 

Liu also talked about the law systems in the game, and like the Witcher 3, if you kill someone out of sight then the law will leave you alone. He also said that “people will not be nice to you if you start killing many people”, as well as adding that there will be certain NPCs that can not be killed due to future missions being tied to them.

Finally, Liu addressed the lore of Cyberpunk. In the source material, Keanu Reeves’ character ‘Johnny Silverhand’ is supposed to be dead by 2077.

He hinted at the possibility of the character being a “digital ghost” as an explanation for him still existing, but didn’t want to give too much away.

While the developer continues to keep many details close to its chest, this new information has us even more excited for the game. We will keep you updated, as more information will continue to trickle out the closer we get to its release date.

An incredibly talented cosplayer has gone viral on Twitter, after posting her uncanny cosplay of mutant girl Daniela from the Resident Evil 8 Village trailer, only four days after it was released.

Popular survival horror franchise Resident Evil’s 8th game was announced back in June of 2020, and since then hype surrounding the new game entitled “Resident Evil Village” has been brewing.

The new installment, set to be released in May 2021, will follow the protagonist Ethan Winter’s journey into a mysterious village, filled with bizarre creatures and spine-tingling moments.

Resident Evil 8 was announced at Sony’s PlayStation 5 event.

In an official gameplay reveal trailer that was released on January 21, fans got to take a look at some of the characters that would be joining them on their journey. One character, Lady Dimitrescu (often dubbed Tall Vampire Lady thanks to her height) has already been a hit among fans.

But alongside Lady Dimitrescu are some companions, who appear to be mutat residents in the castle, and they seem to be rather bloodthirsty from the glimpse we got in the trailer. One of the girls, named Daniela, has also been a hit among fans.

Cosplayer Kayla Erin decided that she wanted to try and recreate this brand new character, despite it only being four days after the trailer was released. But it’s safe to say that she did an extraordinary job of this cosplay, going viral on Twitter.

She’s cloaked in the same dark hood, overlaying a black long sleeve shirt with a deep scoop neck. On either side, she’s clipped some gold brooches that emulate the ones seen in the gameplay trailer, and this metallic look is matched with the various pendants that hang from her neck.

Deep red blood is smeared around her mouth, with heavy black makeup surrounding her eyes, stark against her blonde hair that mimics Daniela’s exactly. She’s even smiling in the exact same way, making for a very chilling, as well as a remarkably accurate cosplay.

At the time of writing her post has garnered over 82,000 likes, people flooding the tweet with compliments, commenting on how quickly she got the cosplay to look so accurate.

There’s no doubt that people will be producing more fantastic Resident Evil cosplays in the run-up to the release as the hype continues.
