During Gamescom 2019 on August 20-24, Polish developer CD PROJEKT RED uploaded over 18 new screenshots for Cyberpunk 2077 on Twitter, which shows how insanely breathtaking the game is as we get closer to its 2020 release date.

Gamescom 2019 is winding down, as its last day is August 24. The international games convention is held in Cologne, Germany, where the top publishers and developers in the industry show off their latest games and tech.

Perhaps more than any other title shown off there, CD PROJEKT RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 is without a doubt one of the most anticipated titles of 2020. And during the convention, the Polish developer released 18 new screenshots showing how breathtaking the game is gearing up to be.

The official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account uploaded a plethora of never-before-seen screenshots to celebrate the convention. The beautiful shots show a variety of subjects from locations, to cars, NPCs, and even gameplay.

But what stands out in particular is the details on the characters themselves. In several of the shots, we get a look at some intricate character designs, and they’re insanely detailed.

One of the biggest features being touted for next gen games is a rendering technique called ray tracing. Leading the charge, Nvidia has teamed up with Cyberpunk 2077 to pair the tech to push the graphics to a new level.

Nvidia decided to get in on the action, as their official Twitter also uploaded new screenshots of the game, showing off the ray tracing technology. “Feast your eyes on these beautiful new #Cyberpunk2077 ray-traced screenshots from Gamescom.” it said.

All of the screenshots can be viewed in the Imgur gallery below.

Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay stream

The Polish developer announced that it will be doing a gameplay stream at the end of August. But while at Gamescom, the press got to experience a new demo, which showed off the various builds and weapons in the play. 

 IGN’s Matt Purslow, detailed one of the futuristic weapons you can use. “You’ve got guns that you can literally tag people, and you’ve got homing bullets. Like the gun from Fifth Element”.

Sneaky Overwatch spot gets you to Watchpoint Gibraltar’s high ground fast

In any competitive shooter, good positioning and map control are key factors to achieving victory. The Overwatch community has once again shown how smart movement can benefit players, this time with a clever trick to gain the high ground on Watchpoint: Gibraltar.

Overwatch is a unique title that requires team coordination and individual skill to overcome opponents. Heroes need to synergize their abilities with teammates and perform well on their own to defeat the other team.

Outside of individual skill and good teamwork, positioning and map control are two additional factors to consider when a team plans and executes their strategy. Players are always looking for new ways to exploit their surroundings to help outsmart their enemies.

While many movement techniques are well-known in the Overwatch community, there are still some tricks that not all players are aware of.  In a video posted user ‘Hovspian’, they show off a lesser-known shortcut players can use to reach the high ground on Watchpoint: Gibraltar.

In the clip, the player is in the interior room located near Checkpoint B: a fairly open space with bits of cover in various spots and a vehicle hanging from the ceiling. They walk towards a forklift that is holding some containers, and then jump on top of the vehicle’s glass windshield.

From there, they jump onto the containers the forklift is holding, and then to the nearby ledge that lines the interior wall. From that position, they survey the room and show off an impressive vantage point where they can shoot down at any enemies in the open space below.

An Overwatch player has shared a nifty trick to gain the high ground on Operation: Gibraltar.

While this may not be a new discovery for some Overwatch veterans, not every player knows about it. One user responded shortly after the post went live saying they were not familiar with this particular move, and thanked Hovspian for sharing it. For those unfamiliar with the movement on display in the clip, this climbing maneuver could prove useful in future matches.

Whether they are playing a damage, tank, or support role, all can benefit from movement that provides them with an advantage. This video is another example of how players can outsmart the competition with their movement skills, and add another trick to their existing arsenal.
