The whole world is once again arguing about reviews, and this time, it’s all about CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077. While we are not part of the review conversation just yet, we are equally excited like everyone else to jump into Night City. In even more hype marketing, the developers and studio have dropped the Cyberpunk 2077 launch trailer. It is everything you would expect from the people who brought us the brilliant Witcher series. The trailer is cinematic, bombastic, and futuristic. What is more important is that the trailer itself contains a secret message.
Right at the very end of the Cyberpunk 2077 launch trailer, a message flashes briefly that explains what is to come for the game. It’s a fun Easter egg of sorts, just before the game launches.
The message teases future expansions for Cyberpunk 2077. Considering the success of The Witcher 3 and its various DLCs, this should come as no surprise to fans. CD Projekt Red is promising more meaty and story-driven content that will have difficult choices to be made. The narratives remain ever important in the RPGs put out by the studio.
However, before the expansions arrive, there will be more free DLC. Starting in early 2021, players can expect a variety of free DLC packs. More cool stuff never hurt anyone, and there will be more to keep you engaged in Night City.
The use of a secret message in the Cyberpunk 2077 launch trailer is nothing new. The method has been used previously to tease info about the series. Different trailers in 2013 and 2018 saw CD Projekt Red hide little hints and messages for sharp-eyed fans to find. At least this time around, you will only have to wait another day.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches on December 10. For those who are photosensitive, do be aware of certain issues before you jump in. As for the rest of you, a neon future awaits.
