With Computex and E3 earlier in the month it’s been a busy few weeks in the PC gaming industry with plenty of new titles and hardware teased for release later in the year and beyond.
The big ones that caught our eye where two RPG’s destined for the PC. The long awaited Elder Scrolls 6 and the game that stole E3 and seems to be what every one is talking about online, CyberPunk 2077.
For Elder Scrolls fans the new game looks to be much of what you would expect, in a good way. Better graphics, refined mechanics and staying true to it’s single player open world RPG roots. Unlike Fallout 76’s detour in to an always online multiple world environment where friends or strangers can drop in out of the game at any time.
Cyberpunk 2077 by CD Projekt Red, the team out of Poland most notably responsible for the Witcher series, is also an RPG but set in, well you guessed it, a Cyberpunk depiction of the year 2077 not totally dissimilar to Dues Ex but with a totally different vibe that comes directly from the unique Polish CD Projekt Red development team.
Rumours have it that the drugs, nudity and violence will get this game refused classification here in Australia effectively banning it from store shelves in our nanny state and that a cut down censored version may be the result. Never the less, it should be trivial for us PC gamers to get around that and simply purchase it online from a country governed by adults who understand video games are not just for 12 year olds.
While both titles do not yet have a locked in release date, it’s safe to say it is probably unlikely we will see them this year. These large scale RPGs are a massive undertaking and quiet honestly we might be lucky to see them in 2019.
Lucky for us we will have plenty to tide us over until then with a new Battlefield, Call of Duty, Fallout, Tomb Raider, Just Cause, Hitman, Darksiders, Anthem, Crackdown, Escape from Tarkov, Metro and a ton more all on the way.
