Cyberpunk 2077 is, without a doubt, the most anticipated game of the year. Set to release right after the launch of the much-awaited consoles, CP2077 is going to be among the first games to test out the next-gen gaming potential of the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X/S, even without the enhanced editions. or at least we hope it does.
CD Projekt Red has left no stone unturned to keep the hype alive for their upcoming open-world title. They have been releasing content on a pretty regular basis, explaining various aspects of life in Night City.
A recent video by the CP2077 YouTube channel explains one of the most eye-catching aspects of Night City life- the style. This is something that catches the eye in almost everything related to the Cyberpunk genre.
In every cyberpunk movie, comic book, or artwork, one eye-catching feature that defines it is the futuristic aesthetic of the world. The world in CP2077 has a specific feel to it that is defined by its style.
This “style” encompasses everything: the cars, the buildings, the way everyone dresses up, and so on.
Digging deep into the style of Cyberpunk 2077
As the episode explained, Night City has four distinct visual styles, each with a different name. These styles have their own status, features, and history.
This visual style entails neon hair and tattoos and is synonymous with the street-glam style. Throwing in a bit of chrome in the mix, this one paints the whole futuristic feel. Functionality, however, comes second with the Kitsch visual style.
This one was born out of the fourth corporate war. This style resonates with the feeling of the urgency of a war-torn time. Hence, you will find it focuses mainly on functionality rather than looks.
Dark and elegant, the mixture of the corporate and the military is what defines the Neomilitaristic visual style. You can see this style in the wealthy, elite sections of the society.
This is the gamut of visual style that spells glamour. The carefree Kitsch visual style gets a touch of bling to form the bold style of the Neokitsch. This is the style of celebrities and business magnates.
With all this information, the hype regarding CP2077 just got a significant push. Cyberpunk 2077 will release worldwide on the 19th of November.
