Cyberpunk 2077 Will Offer A Multiplayer Mode
Cyberpunk 2077 will be CD Projekt RED’s first game to have a multiplayer mode.
Speaking to Eurogamer, the company’s managing director Adam Badowski confirmed today that they intend for the game to offer some form of multiplayer experience with the game’s single-player focused campaign.
“It will be a story-based RPG experience with amazing single-player playthroughs, but we’re going to add multiplayer features,” said Badowski, who did not elaborate on what the mode would consist of. The developer preferred to talk about the game’s open world environment.
“The first and most important environment for Cyberpunk is the city, obviously,” said Badowski. “But not only the city: you can expect some more environments in the Cyberpunk game. We want to start in the Night City, which is cool. And yes it will be an open world game as well.”
Badowski added that the potential for multiplayer also exists with The Witcher 3, but they are unable to commit to anything at the moment. In other words, the Witcher 3 may not necessarily have a traditional multiplayer mode in the way you might expect. We speculate that the game could offer online social networking features, such as those integrated into single-player games like LA Noire and Sleeping Dogs, both of which provided players with some form of multiplayer interaction. However, to call them multiplayer games would be exaggerating those offerings, and the same can perhaps be said about The Witcher 3.
As for what they have planned for Cyberpunk 2077, we’ll just have to wait and see.
