Developer CD Projekt Red has continued to release new details and looks at the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, and now it is providing an image of an eccentric enemy.
The screenshot, released on Twitter, features the player character V wielding a large machine gun pointed directly at the enemy, who appears to be carrying an equally large sledgehammer. The enemy also seems to have charged through a large neon sign before this deadly encounter. Although the official tweet didn't provide any details about who this enemy is, GamesRadar reports this is a boss battle with Sasquatch.
Sasquatch is reportedly the leader of the Animals gang and was first shown off during the private E3 2019 demo. The encounter with Sasquatch begins when V raids the Animals' hideout looking for a particular chip. Once V finds out the situation is getting dangerous fairly quickly, that is when good old Sasquatch bursts through the neon sign initiating the fight.
Since Cyberpunk 2077 will provide players with the opportunity to experience the game in any way they want, including doing a no-kill run, this battle could very conclude in several different ways. Perhaps V and Sasquatch could come to some sort of an agreement that doesn't end in the Animals' leader's demise? Players will find out for sure when Cyberpunk 2077 launches next year.
Although any new screenshots of Cyberpunk 2077 are always welcome, getting another proper demo shown to the public would be even more exciting. The good news is that CD Projekt Red is set to bring a playable version of the E3 2019 demo to PAX West later this month. This will give players a chance to spend some quality time with one of the most highly-anticipated titles to release in the next year. Reactions to this demo were mixed at E3, with some outlets citing the gameplay still needs some work.
It's been confirmed Cyberpunk 2077 won't have a companion card game similar to Gwent in The Witcher series. The big rumor that was circulating around was that the legacy card game Android: Netrunner would be turned into a minigame for Cyberpunk, but that's now no longer the case. CD Projekt Red also revealed the game won't have any pre-order bonuses to ensure everyone plays with the “same content.”
The game will be released on April 16th, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
