Watch 48 minutes of 'Cyberpunk 2077' gameplay

We still don't have a release date, but CD Projekt Red told us at Gamescom that they've got a build that runs through the game from start to finish. The rest of the video is dedicated to showing off the open world and how single missions as well as the entire story can shift and change based on the decisions you make.

Holy flaming shoes. CD Projekt RED has only gone and released a big ol' chunk of Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay footage today, showcasing what was shown behind closed doors during Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, last week.

Cyberpunk 2077 dominated E3 conversations among anyone who was lucky enough to attend that demo. After almost five years of media blackout on the game, Cyberpunk 2077 made its world premier at the end of Microsoft's E3 press event, with a live demo shown to press behind closed doors.

Premiered over on the developer's Twitch channel, the demo shows off quite a bit of gameplay including combat, driving, conversation, and character creation, as well as how CD Projekt Red is bringing genre tropes and staples to life, particularly in regards to the hacking of humans. Players will be able to use V as a male or female character and also tweak his/her backstory.

Watch 48 minutes of official 2018 gameplay from Cyberpunk 2077 and get a glimpse into the world of perils and possibilities that is Night City - the most vibrant and unsafe metropolis of the future. "What you're seeing here is from early in the game".

In a press release, director Adam Badowski explains why the developer was originally intent to keep this footage from the public.

"However, we are also well aware that many of you want to see what the media saw", he added.

"However, we are also well aware that many of you want to see what the media saw Although this is probably not the same game you'll see on your screen when we launch, we still made a decision to share this 48-minute video with you".
