At the presentation of Night City Wire, CD Projekt RED presented one of the game mechanics of Cyberpunk 2077 — the ability to get into the memories of NPCs and change them. The ability was called Braindance (“Brain dance”).

With this skill, you can get more information about NPCs or the world of Cyberpunk 2077. In the presented fragment, V looked through the memories of the bandit and found out who he killed during the robbery.

You can rewind the recording back and forth, or stop it. During the “dive” it is allowed to divide the memory into layers and thus get more information about what happened to the NPC: what sounds were around, objects, and so on.

Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on November 19 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. All owners of the game on consoles will receive a free copy for the next generation of consoles. In 2022, an animated series based on the game will be released on Netflix.

The US army National guard has become a partner of NRG Esports

Multi-gaming NRG Esports has announced a collaboration with the us Army National guard. The eSports organization announced this on social networks.

The financial side and terms of the transaction are unknown. The Army National guard of the United States has its own cyber command and soldiers-streamers. In addition, in April, it partnered with the Complexity Limit Guild to sponsor Mythic Dungeon International’s World of Warcraft competition.

In June, the Chicago Huntsmen (also owned by NRG), a member team of the Call of Duty League franchise, entered into a partnership with the US army. The US military also sponsors the League itself, Complexity Gaming, and the Ultimate Gaming Championship tournament operator, which hosts Apex Legends Championships.

An animated series will be released on Cyberpunk 2077

On the live broadcast of Night City Wire, CD Projekt RED Studio announced Cyberpunk Edgerunners — an animated series that takes place in the world of Cyberpunk 2077. According to a CDPR representative, the project has been working on for a long time.

The plot of Edgerunners will not repeat the events of the game. The series will have its own key characters — it’s not about Vee or Jack. The show’s composer is Akira Yamaoko — who wrote the music for the Silent Hill series.

The show is produced by a separate CD Projekt RED team together with the Japanese Studio Trigger. The streaming service Netflix is also working on the project, where the series will be released. Its premiere is scheduled for 2022.
