Cyberpunk 2077, there is probably no gamer in the world that has not heard of this game by now. This is probably the most hyped game of the year and with good reason. The triple-A title was revealed years back by CD Projekt Red just when it started its development plans. The game was since then their primary focus. With the outstanding results and popularity their previous game Witcher 3 collected over the years, labeling it as the game of the decade, CD Projekt Red had a new goal in mind; to create the best game of the dawning decade.
What is behind the hype?
It is being developed by CD Projekt Red. CD Projekt Red has yet to disappoint its fans, as its previous titles were absolute masterpieces. Players still speak highly of them, so it’s pretty likely that their latest venture is going to be similar. Thanks to this, Cyberpunk 2077 is hinted to have a massive open world that is unrivaled by RPGs of its nature. Not only it’s interactive going to be unfathomable, it’s going to be loaded with those juicy quests similar to Witcher 3 that is going to leave its players filled with a sense of accomplishment after each one.
Even though CD Projekt Red picked up the idea of Cyberpunk 2077 through a tabletop RPG, it is pretty obvious that with the number of programmers, scriptwriters and resources they are busting in for this game, the content is going to be original and epic. With the lack of DRM, the game will probably have a lower price than most other games on the market today. CD Projekt Red has always been dedicated in their course of leaving out DRM in their games.
Cyberpunk 2077 is by far their most advanced game to date, crafted together by the best designers and programmers on the planet. By looking at the teaser gameplays, trailers, and information we have so far on the game, we can conclude that this game will probably require hundreds of hours to complete. The interactive NPCs, the breathtaking steampunk world, and everything else will need a good amount of dedication and effort to explore and interact. The breathtaking graphics and the immersive storyline is all the motivation you need.
CD Projekt Red is not alone
Just months before the release of the game Nvidia, a giant in the world of gaming hardware released a rare Cyberpunk version of its most prestigious graphics card at the time; a rare Cyber2077 version of the 2080ti. The rare one of a kind graphics card soon became the most sought out collectible by gamers and its price skyrocketed. Some owners even sold their own Cyberpunk 2077 themed 2080ti for as high as $2500, at the moment there are bids for the item that goes as high as $3500.
But with Nvidia RTX 30 series released, is it worth getting this limited edition? Because RTX 2080 Ti have a lower performance score than RTX 30 series low-end GPU such as the RTX 3060 and RTX 3070
