When the first Cyberpunk 2077 trailer was revealed all the way back in 2013, an elite unit called the Psycho Squad was unveiled in the trailer. Fast forward seven years to 2020, and the Psycho Squad has reemerged with a redesign.
You can check out the original trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 just below. This trailer shows a woman about to be executed by a mysterious soldier, which CD Projekt studio head Adam Badowski revealed afterwards were the Psycho Squad, an elite police unit that deals with certain crimes.
Yesterday, brand new gameplay and impressions from Cyberpunk 2077 premiered (including a tie-in anime developed by Studio Trigger). Within the deluge of new information was a screenshot of someone bearing a striking resemblance to the Psycho Squad soldier first shown all the way back in 2013. You can check out the new screenshot just below.
You can definitely see how the aesthetic of Cyberpunk 2077 has evolved over the course of its extensive development period in comparing the two Psycho Squad designs. The current visuals look a lot harder and striking, whereas the design from 2013 looks comparatively smooth.
It's crazy to think that Cyberpunk 2077 was revealed over seven years ago back in 2012. The reveal trailer showing the Psycho Squad arrived next year in 2013, back before the current-gen consoles even launched. Now Cyberpunk 2077 is almost here, and we're looking to the next-gen consoles later this year.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches November 17, 2020 for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It'll be available to play on next-gen consoles on the day that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X launch, with a substantial patch arriving for both next-gen consoles at a later date.
