All that E3 viewers got to see in the way of Cyberpunk 2077 last week was the game’s reveal trailer, but select press were granted a behind-closed-doors demonstration of how it will play. While the footage from the demo has yet to surface, fans can listen to its recently leaked audio to get an idea of what was on display.
The audio was posted in two parts by gaming outlet DSOGaming, with each file clocking in at 24 minutes and 15 seconds. Anyone interested can listen to the first and second file on the voice recording site Vocaroo, but as the audio was captured surreptitiously, the quality isn’t top notch.
Most of Cyberpunk 2077‘s major gameplay revelations came up in subsequent interviews during the week of E3, such as how players will not be able to complete the game with a non-lethal playthrough, but it is still interesting to hear the ambiance of the game, and even learn what the experience’s lead character sounds like.
The visual design of the game is reportedly staggering, but the demo’s impressive presentation may not be representative of the experience most gamers will enjoy. As we recently learned from a co-founder of developer CD Projekt Red, the demo was running on an insanely high-end PC, which most of us are likely not able to shell out for. On the bright side, it was also confirmed that the demo was taken from a real build of the game, which makes the developer’s assurance that the experience won’t have in-game loading screens that much more impressive.
Cyberpunk 2077 does not yet have a release date, but it will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
