Cyberpunk 2077 Is Having Another Night City Wire Showcase Next Week

Cyberpunk 2077 Is Having Another Night City Wire Showcase Next Week

Time to learn about lifepaths, weapons, and more.

Ready for more details on Cyberpunk 2077? CD Projekt Red is getting ready to host another of its Night City Wire streams about the game, and it's coming up quite soon.

There's no word on how long this second episode will be, but it's airing live at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET on Monday, August 10. As before, it'll be broadcast via CD Projekt Red's Twitch, but presumably it'll be uploaded to YouTube afterwards, just as the first episode was.

This time around, CD Projekt Red promises that it will "share details about lifepaths [and] show you the types of weapons you will be using in the game," which hopefully means we'll get another good look at some gameplay. Last time around we did see snippets from a few various lifepaths, and a recent look at a 2077 artbook dropped an intriguing detail about melee weapons, but maybe this time we'll go as in-depth on weapons and lifepaths as we've gone on character customization.

Another thing we'll see in the next Night City Wire is a spotlight on the band Refused, which is providing music for Cyberpunk 2077 under the name Samurai. In-universe, Samurai is actually fronted by Johnny Silverhand, the character played by Keanu Reeves, so you can bet you'll hear these tracks a lot as you roam around Night City.

All in all, it does seem like this presentation may be a little bit lighter on news than the previous one. Lots of outlets and influencers got to go hands-on with Cyberpunk 2077 ahead of the first Night City Wire and it packed in the reveal of Netflix's Cyberpunk anime being made by Studio Trigger. Expect new info on 2077's mechanics and world, but nothing earth shattering.

Cyberpunk 2077 is set to launch on November 19 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It'll also receive free day one upgrades for the Xbox Series X and PS5, which will be followed by "more robust" updates later on.
