Raytracing and DLSS 2.0 support at launch (I assume it's good for AMD RDNA2 raytracing, and we'll have to see about Nvidia DLSS 3.0):

I'm still not too fond of the style and the settings of the game. I'll probably end up buying it anyway, but, still... 

Deux Ex was a immediate hit in terms of basically everything. This game just doesn't wow me in the same way. "Night City", meh. Body builded musclemen or freaks as NPC's, don't like the name and the character of the factions much. I don't know. Just doesn't talk to me the way the old and new Deus Ex's do. They definitely have more appeal for me than this. This rather looks and feels like a comic compared.

Sorry for being all negative. Just my opinion, of course.

The children and grandchildren of the zoomers will all look like that. Genetic engineering, body modification, advanced prosthetics, advanced hair dyes, designer drugs, etc. Cyberpunk 2077 is just depicting normal life 50+ years from now.

Possible. Or it'll be completely different.

;)

Anyway, The Witcher already wasn't my cup of tea, so it figures, kind of.

That's certainly true. Original RPG has a lot of goofiness. For example there's a character named Adam Smasher :) It's closer to Johnny Mnemonic than Schindler's List for sure.

I played the original pen & paper Cyberpunk, and I think they got the style quite right, along with all the cult movies. This is basically 80s extrapolated into the future, and that's correct.

Funny that Deus Ex gets mentioned so often, because despite strong art style it had some really nonsensical ideas, especially in terms of being a prequel to original DX. Hengsha is one of those, design and lore wise, but also the whole fashion and black/gold color scheme. I get where they're coming from, but whether it makes sense in DX context is another story. To me it's more like they hired some fine arts interns who majored in fabric and clothing, and they needed to find them something to do for the project. :D

TBH, I wouldn't even want to mention it that often. I just do because, everywhere, Cyberpunk gets compared to it. Right from the start, I didn't feel like they have much in common, apart from obviously being of the same genre. It's like comparing Elder Scrolls to The Witcher. Very different games also IMO.

This guy gives a strong "Illusive Man" vibe for people who played Mass Effect 😉

I played Deus Ex and Deus Ex Human Revolution, but they both did not really click for me, so I finished neither. I like the Cyberpunk genre in films (Bladerunner, Ghost in the Shell, Total Recall, Battle Angel Alita; all great films), but in games it did not really work for me so far. On the other hand, I loved the Witcher games (although Withcer 3 had a lot of meaningless "occupy the player" taksks), so maybe I will still give it a shot. But definitley only, when I get it on sale for less than 30 bucks.

Considering there are sooo few (too few) cyberpunk-themed immersive sims with RPG elements, I think a comparison to Deus Ex is pretty fair. What else is there? System Shock. That's about it, right? 

On the other hand, you have tons of fantasy RPGs so that the spectrum of different kind of games is a lot more defined, which leads to your example comparison, Elder Scrolls vs Witcher, not being valid.

Finally a high bitrate version of the latest trailer is available:

https://www.gamersyde.com/video_cyberpunk_2077_the_gig-45034_en.html

If that is representative of the game running with DLSS 2.0 enabled then I am impressed with the clarity and sharpness. Watched it on a C9 and looked like native 4k to me.

 

I don't have a 4K display so I'm not going to bother downloading a 1.5 GB 2-minute clip, but one of you might find this useful.

Even if your monitor doesn't support the resolution, higher bitrate means image quality will be better. This is especially true on Youtube which has low bitrates. 4k will look much less compressed than 1080 even on a 1080 monitor.
