It’s got some strong competition, but Cyberpunk 2077 might just be the biggest game of 2020. It’s the follow-up to developer CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, GameSpot’s 2015 Game of the Year. Cyberpunk shifts the developer’s focus from the past to the future, but the choice-driven storytelling, strong characters, and evocative world-building CDPR is known for all look to be intact. It also stars Keanu Reeves as Johnny Silverhand, which is pretty cool. Though originally slated for April 16 of this year, CDPR pushed the game back to September 17, 2020. If you’re looking to pre-order the game on PS4, Xbox One, or PC, there are a few things you may want to consider, such as where you want to get it and what edition you want.
Developers CD Projekt Red showed off extensive gameplay footage of Cyberpunk 2077 during a livestream on last August, where we got a closer look at the combat, customization, setting, and more.
The game is based on Mike Pondsmith’s tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020, so the 2020 release date makes total sense. However, the game itself is set 57 years later in the futuristic android-filled world of Night City, where android augmentations are an integral part of people’s lives. There looks to be plenty of deep customization and lots of options when it comes to first-person combat. The team has confirmed Cyberpunk 2020 will not have microtransactions, will be DRM-free on PC, and have DLC similar in size to Witcher 3.

Cyberpunk Collectible Figures
Along with the game itself, you can get a trio of Cyberpunk 2077 collectible figures, courtesy of McFarlane Toys, and which you can pre-order at both Walmart and GameStop. The first is a deluxe, 12-inch figure of Johnny Silverhand rocking a sick guitar.
If the first figure’s a little expensive or big for you, you can get a 7-inch figure of Johnny throwing up the horns for cheaper.
Finally, you can nab a 7-inch figure of the game’s protagonist (or their male default look, anyway), V, for a similar price.
