In the game’s August 10 Night City livestream, CD Projekt Red revealed brand new details about Cyberpunk 2077’s weapons, including how they work, their pros and cons, and more.

At this point in time, it’s not out of left field to say that Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated games of 2020. From its unique and vibrant setting, to Keanu Reeves himself, many fans are looking forward to picking it up when it releases in November 2020.

Despite this hype, however, there’s still a ton about the game that we don’t know about, which is where CD Projekt Red’s Night City livestreams come in. These streams are meant to be informative deep dives into basic features from the game itself so that players can familiarize themselves with them before release.

On August 10, CD Projekt Red held its second Night City livestream and, once again, dove right in on a bunch of details about the game. During the stream, fans got some new details about the game’s weapons, including the advantages and disadvantages of each type, the main uses of each, and more.

In total, ranged weapons break down into three separate categories: smart, power, and tech. As one would expect, each category has its own different advantages and disadvantages, with each one filling a different role than the others, in order to diversify each gameplay experience.

Power weapons focus more on, you guessed it, power. The developers say these weapons are the most comparable to today’s modern weapons but that they have their own “Cyberpunk” twists to them. One of the main features of these weapons is the ability to ricochet bullets off walls and floors.

For tech weapons, players are able to fire a projectile at incredibly high speeds in order to completely decimate targets. According to the developers, these are the best to take out enemies behind cover, as it can punch right through it with ease.

The last set is smart weapons, which uses technology that allows players to track targets, bend bullets around corners, and more. Overall, these seem to do the lowest damage of the bunch, however, the ability to take out targets around corners is invaluable.

Beyond the actual weapons itself, fans will also have access to a ton of mods, which can change the way you play even more than before. While there wasn’t a deep dive into the mods, the developers did say that some of them include non-lethal rounds, chemical rounds, damage increases, and more.

All in all, it seems like gunplay is going to be an incredibly important aspect to Cyberpunk 2077, although, given the fact that it’s an FPS, this really shouldn’t be much of a surprise. Hopefully, the gameplay itself is as good as it looks.

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.

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.
