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.
