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”.

Spider-Verse producer wants Spider-Man: Miles Morales glitches in sequel

The transformational glitches in Spider-Man: Miles Morales are pretty hilarious. So hilarious, in fact, that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’s producer, screenplay and story writer, Phil Lord, wants to use them in the hit movie’s sequel.

Lord and his filmmaking duo, Christopher Miller, are no strangers to animation or comedy. With titles like Spider-Verse, Lego Movie, and 21 Jump Street under their shared filmmaking belt, it’s no wonder that the two are unafraid of getting a little weird with the animated Spider-Man flick’s sequel.

And if you want inspiration for red and blue weirdness, look no further than the Miles Morales game. Playable on PS4 and PS5, the title has apparently been a massive success, with 97 percent of Google users enjoying it. While people are typically annoyed with launch day bugs, the issues with this one are just too funny to chastise. 

With weird, viral videos of players transforming into various inanimate objects, it was actually a transformation of a patio heater that caught Lord’s eye. Now, it appears that “Heater Parker” could become a reality in Spider-Verse 2.

Since the original Spider-Verse movie was chock-full of absurdities and goofy odes to different genres or pop-culture references, invoking a video game’s glitch should be no problem. And, as far as content goes, few things evoke comedic surrealism as much as a patio heater using a web to swing from building to building in New York City.

For Lord, at least, the randomized development mistake appears too funny to ignore as film inspiration: “We’re putting this in Spider-Verse 2 if we have any self-respect at all.”

Hopefully, he and Miller have as much self-respect as the title’s developers, Insomniac Games, have humility. In response to Lord’s tweet, which has since gone viral, the game’s makers couldn’t help but acknowledge their imperfections with a pun.

While we were under the impression that patio heaters were meant to heat patios, not hearts, the Insomniac reflection remains accurate: this silly, inanimate object glitch is “equally as embarrassing as it is heartwarming.”

But, above all else, they’re just funny. It could legitimately be one of gaming and cinema’s greatest, most randomly inspired crossovers if Spider-Verse 2 involves an alternate dimensional Heater Parker.
