Gamers may want to temper back their excitement for the project, as company cofounder Marcin Iwinski said the game is still in “early development.” Fans can stay up to date with the development process through the game’s blog, which launched today with insight from developers and Cyberpunk creator Mike Pondsmith.
Cyberpunk 2077 puts players into a “dark future” in 2077 where advanced technologies have become “both the salvation and the curse of humanity.” The game promises a nonlinear story designed for “mature” players and is set in the metropolis of Night City. It was also revealed today that Cyberpunk 2077 will feature sandbox elements, though this was not specified in any length.
Additionally, CD Projekt Red announced today that its digital distribution hub GOG.com is now available for Mac. The service launched today with 50 games, including The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition, Faster Than Light, SimCity 2000, and others. All purchases include both the Mac and PC versions.
Additionally, in celebration of GOG’s fourth anniversary, all Interplay titles will be available through a pay-what-you-want pricing option for the next two weeks. For more on that promotion and the games included, check out the official website.
Lastly, it was announced that the company’s Red Kit modding toolset for The Witcher will be available for free sometime during the first half of 2013 and that The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has sold over 2 million copies worldwide to date.
