Cyberpunk 2077 is set in the future and is played in the first person, where players can explore the world and take on missions, seemingly creating their own story in this new world. The game will feature multiple, upgradable skills and abilities and the possibility of upgrading individual character classes. This is a huge game for the developer as a follow-up to the wildly popular 1988 tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020.
