To the surprise of I assume nobody, Cyberpunk 2077 will have several difficulty settings. These will range from easier modes, for those that just want to experience the story, to Hardcore Mode, where you won’t even have the UI to help you out. I’m a story guy myself, so I know what I’ll be picking. Overall, pretty standard proceedings, really.
Much like The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077 is going to offer players several difficulty modes. I mean, this is not exactly unexpected, but now we have it confirmed. In an interview with Wccftech, CD Projekt Red’s Alvin Liu spoke a little bit on the subject. For those of you that really want a challenge, you’ll have Hardcore mode. Among other things, this mode is going to turn off your UI, so you’ll have to make your way through the game solely by your own devices. That’s quite the disadvantage in a world where everyone is augmented.
On the other hand, if you want to just experience the story, you’ll be able to do so, too. If you’re more of an RPG fan, and aren’t much into shooters, then this will probably be the way to go for you. As we know from the demos we’ve all seen, there’ll even be a gun that’ll make shooting much easier; the Smart Gun, to be exact. As the name implies, it makes aiming a whole lot easier. True, the bullets are weaker and slower, to keep things balanced, but still.
Cyberpunk 2077 is coming out on April 16th, 2020. When it does, you’ll be able to get it on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. And, once the looming new generation of consoles come out, I’d wager we’re gonna get an updated version for those, too. I mean, there’s no way Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t gonna sell enough to warrant remasters.
