The development team at CD Projekt is ready to offer more details on the game universe for its upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, after gamers got a chance to take a look at the first trailer for the title.The setting of the game is the metropolis of Night City, filled with sin and filth, dominated by drugs, violence, poverty and exclusion.
One of the most interesting aspects of the game universe are braindances, described by CD Projekt as a cheap way of living experiences and emotions that belong to another person.
The team says, “Braindances are digital recordings of a person’s experience. The viewer can stream a braindance directly into his neural system via special brain augmentations, called a BD player. Braindances allow the viewer to experience all brain processes registered, including emotions, muscle movements and all stimuli perceived by the recording person.”
The market for braindances has been cornered by a number of megacorporations that are creating easy to experience packages designed to appeal to the desires of each user.
At the same time, there are illegal, underground braindances, focused on dark experiences, like the feelings and desires of killers and addicts.
CD Projekt put together a small debate on the issue, using characters from the Cyberpunk 2077 universe, which fans can access here.
It is designed to show everyone the kind of moral choices that players will have to deal with in the full game.
The new game will focus on one individual who grows up on the streets but has the chance to play an important role in the power structure of Night City.
Gamers will be able to create their own type of character and then customize it as the game progresses, exploring the unique world that CD Projekt is creating.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set to launch in 2015 and will probably arrive on the PC and next-generation consoles.
