On Thursday evening, November 19, 2020, CD Projekt Red presented the fifth and last edition of the Night City Wire format before the (hopefully) final release date on December 10, 2020. After new details from the game and had been revealed to the direct developer environment, the official gameplay trailer could be seen today.
In addition, the issue dealt intensively with one of the most important story characters Johnny Silverhand, his creation and the role of Keanu Reeves in the process of development. Exciting insights behind the scenes, the motion capturing and his perception of the work await you.
There were also detailed insights into the making of the sounds, noises and tracks that you will be able to hear in and around Night City. From the booming bass in seedy nightclubs to the fat beats when you get into one of the cars and the radio is on.

No copyright problems: CDPR has thought for itself
Speaking of radio: CD Projekt Red has thought along and directly addressed one of the biggest problems in the presentation of the game after the release. Many content creators were already concerned that music played in cyberpunk could lead to copyright complaints and the associated strikes on Twitch.tv, for example. But a specially implemented option directly in the game lets you choose whether problematic songs should simply not be played and replaced with other songs contained in the game.
As a result, you may lose a little musical variety in the game world, but should nevertheless be a lot better than having to completely mute the music when you create videos or live stream Cyberpunk 2077.
6 Tracks EP – 22 Minutes Cyberpunk Music
Speaking of cyberpunk and music: In line with the latest edition of Night City Wire today, Thursday, a new EP consisting of six tracks was released following the official stream, which you can now hear on all popular music streaming platforms and so on can adjust properly to Night City.
JALI – Lip Sync at its best
To stay briefly on the topic of dubbing and sound: During the Night City Wire 5 episode, the software “JALI” was presented, which takes on facial features and lip synchronization for all NPCs in cyberpunk. Depending on the voice output set, the speaker’s mouth will also behave differently – that is incredibly immersive!
Cyberpunk 2077 — Official Gameplay Trailer
Last but not least, one of the highlights: CD Projekt Red showed the five-minute long gameplay trailer for the first time, in which it becomes really clear how dark and intense Cyberpunk 2077 can be. Of course, a number of previously unseen sequences from the gloomy future can also be seen in this video.
