Cyberpunk wasn’t always high-tech
CD Projekt Red has become a household name thanks to the Witcher series, and while their next game remains an RPG it has quite a different pedigree.
Cyberpunk 2077 is based on the classic 1988 pen-and-paper role-playing game Cyberpunk 2020, written by Michael Pondsmith and published by R Talsorian Games. Cyberpunk 2077 is set 57 years later, and features the digital ghost of Johnny Silverhand, a character from Cyberpunk 2020.
The term Cyberpunk was originally invented by Bruce Bethke for a 1980 short story, and came to describe a sub-genre of science-fiction that explores the impact of digitization, computer network and posthumanism on capitalist society.
Impressive textures on PlayStation 5
The developers behind upcoming first-person thriller Martha is Dead are excited about the PlayStation 5’s ludicrously high-resolution output.
LKA’s head of studio Luco Dalco talked to Official PlayStation Magazine UK about the new capabilities and explained how they will improve their next game.
”We worked a lot in order to use the highest-resolution textures as possible also on PS4,” said Dalco. “PS5 will allow us to use an incredible Texel density, up to 4096px/m – that means the visual will be fully detailed also in higher resolutions. It’s one of the most important advances in visual capacity that we were waiting for.”
- PlayStation 5 is rumoured to support 8k output
- LKA’s last game was the adventure The Town of Light from 2016
Photorealism ahoy: “PS5’s specifications are incredibly exciting – particularly for us is the additional graphical power and inclusion of ray-tracing architecture. Our studio has come a long way over four years and Martha Is Dead will strive for photorealism.”
No release date yet: LKA has yet to announce a release date for Martha is Dead, but you can always wishlist the game to get notified.
