An enormous game got mass download

3429 cyberpunk 2077 bonne nouvelle

On the 10th of December, Cyberpunk 2077 - the much-anticipated game from CD PROJEKT RED will come to life on millions of computers and consoles around the world. Set in a dystopian, sci-fi universe created by Mike Pondsmith, Cyberpunk 2077 will take us to a huge open world, soaked in neon lights and a kitsch art style. Thanks to cybernetic enhancements, its inhabitants can access the omnipresent Net almost any time they want and they can also modify their bodies in countless ways, making it a lethal weapon or simply a fashion statement.

Cyberpunk 2077 has officially launched across the globe. With the launch of perhaps the most anticipated game of the year, it appears that the sudden rush of players attempting to boot up and/or download the game has resulted in Steam and CD Projekt's GOG experiencing some persistent technical issues. This has resulted in at least some players being unable to finish downloading Cyberpunk 2077’s day one patch or sync up with GOG’s cloud.

As of 4:30 P.M. PST, Steam’s own data statistics page shows the service is experiencing a peak bandwidth consumption of 17.7 terabytes per second. Basically, that’s a lot of people “jacking in” to the game. Some players are even experiencing a sudden pause near the end of the 60GB download, cites

DownDetector's Steam page also reported approximately 23,000 reports of Steam issues as of 4:50 P.M. PST.

A general overview of Cyberpunk 2077

It takes seconds to get a sense of how big Cyberpunk 2077 is. After you click New Game, you're given an extensive character builder that lets you customize V, the game's main character, in innumerable ways. You'll decide everything from eye shape to fingernail length and, as you've likely heard by now, penis size and pubic hairstyle.

The deep customization options foreshadow what's to come: a huge world to explore, extensive role-playing mechanics that let you choose how you navigate combat, and endless opportunities to shape how the story plays out. Cyberpunk 2077 is a beast -- one that's sometimes ungainly, but clearly crafted with mastery (and an unfathomable amount of man-hours).

First revealed in 2013 by CD Projekt Red, the studio behind The Witcher series, Cyberpunk 2077 brings a launch fueled by a tremendous amount of hype. But the past few months have seen the game beset by delays and reports of crunch, leading some to worry that the game is too big and ambitious for CD Projekt Red to handle.

Those concerns can largely be forgotten. Cyberpunk 2077 real and, despite some pacing issues and mostly-benign glitches, it's exactly what fans hoped it would be.

Just like no two players are likely to design the same V, no two will get the exact same Cyberpunk 2077 experience. Decisions you make will change how missions operate, how characters treat you, and how the game ends.

But while the particulars may differ, the millions who pick up the long-awaited game on Thursday all will get the same meticulously realized playground in Night City, one so expansive you could play until actual 2077 and still probably not see everything, according to

The game’s story

Night City is a bustling metropolis situated in the Free State of Northern California. It’s 2077, seven years after the Unification War spread across America, and let’s just say that things aren’t looking pretty. Night City has just been voted “the worst place to live” on the continent, yet where some people fear danger, others see opportunity.V, the main character of the game, definitely belongs to the second group. When we meet our hero, they are working as a mercenary for a fixer named Dexter DeShawn. After one of the assignments goes terribly wrong, V is contacted by a mysterious revolutionary figure, Johnny Silverhand (played by Keanu Reeves). Of course, we don’t want to spoil anything more, so let’s stop the plot-explaining right here.)

The character creation

In Cyberpunk 2077, our hero is highly customizable. Apart from their appearance, along with details like eyes and hair color, body shape, or tattoos, we can select our character’s Lifepath from the three distinct options available. Our choice will not only affect the character’s stats and traits but also will give them a unique narrative background. If you choose the Nomad Lifepath, the hero will come to Night City from the polluted Badlands, where independence and resourcefulness are top qualities. If you decide on the Streetkid Lifepath, the main character will know more about life on Night City’s crime-infested streets. Finally, if your choice is the Corporate Lifepath, you’ll be skilled in the subtle art of intrigue, honed in the corridors of the Arasaka megacorporation.After creating your own character, it’s time to explore the game’s awesome universe!

The game’s world

Night City is a vast metropolis, with over 6 million inhabitants, all living their lives and constantly on the move. Surrounded by the inhospitable Badlands, the town is divided into six districts, each one with its own unique background and architecture.Places like Pacifica, a run-down tourist district, or the cramped Santo Domingo are quite dangerous. On the other side of the spectrum, you can visit City Center, with its breathtaking skyscrapers and Corpo Plaza, or Westbrook, the most prestigious part of Night City. Somewhere in between are the Heywood and Watson districts, relatively rich, but still penetrated by the street gangs.Speaking of street gangs, eight big gangs roam the streets of Night City.

Among them you’ll find:

6th Street - a gang consisting of hardened veterans of the 4th Corporate War

Animals - bodybuilders who distrust any cyberware enhancements

Maelstrom - extreme fans of implants and powerful, illegal cyberware

THE MOX - an anarchist group that unites outcasts from various groups

Scavengers - infamous for kidnapping people and harvesting their cyberware

Tyger Claws - owners of widely illegal entertainment businesses

Valentinos - a loyal family gang that idolizes Santa Muerte

Voodoo Boys - the best netrunners and master hackers in Night CityOf course, during your stay, you’ll encounter other, smaller criminal groups. They all have different qualities and goals but have one thing in common – you better not cross them unprepared, reports
