New Cyberpunk 2077 Details Emerge, Including Hip Firing and “Unexpected” Music

Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt RED has been rather open about the development of Cyberpunk 2077 ever since they revealed glorious gameplay last year. That said, the latest details to emerge from the dev team revolve around how players will be able to use their weapons and the music that will be featured in one’s journey around Night City.

Taking to the CDPR forums, Marcin Momot replied to a couple fans that were inquiring about the aspects mentioned above. In regards to the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack, Momot feels “a lot of folks will be really surprised with the general music direction we’re taking with the game. It will obviously match the theme and compliment the world just right, however I don’t think many are expecting where we’re going.”

That could mean anything, really. When fans of the cyberpunk genre think of music, there are typically a lot of melodic synths involved. However, if the tracks heard in the game’s trailers are any indication of what’s to come, we might be getting something more along the lines of electronic music with a touch of rock. Then again, it could all be pop music, but we doubt they would go that route.

Continuing in another thread on the CDPR forums, Momot also touched on the way players will be able to fire their weapons. Hip firing will be present, so those taking to the streets in Night City “won’t be forced to aim down the sight all the time when shooting.” He also noted that augmentations will absolutely play a role when it comes to firing a weapon, whether it’s from the hip or not. “Sight, however, can also provide some additional bonuses,” Momot added.

Cyberpunk 2077 remains without a release date, but it is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
