Latest Frame by Frame Episode Focuses On Cyberpunk 2077’s Nightlife

Published

Since the stunning trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 was released during E3 2018, developer CD Projekt Red has been releasing small insights on the title in the form of ‘Frame by Frame’ episodes.

The studio opens its description of the city with the following:

“For every colorful individual in Night City, there’s a colorful story, and nearly every slice of the E3 2018 trailer tells a story of its own.”

The latest episode—the sixth in the series—details the nightlife and entertainment to be found within Night City. By focusing the episode on one of the many bars to be found throughout Night City, the studio manages to show off the game’s distinctive retro-futuristic vibe. Importantly, the episode contextualises how Cyberpunk‘s aesthetics are not skin-deep, but have actual importance to the project overall.

Previous entries in the Frame by Frame series, which can be found here, go into more detail regarding the technical aspects of the game, as well as some of the lore introduced in the E3 teaser. For example, the first episode explains that the entire trailer was shot in-engine, giving audiences an idea of Cyberpunk‘s technical prowess.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
