Cyberpunk 2077 will treat each language equally, offering full lip-sync for every dub

By Sherif Saed, Tuesday, 20 October 2020 16:41 GMT Cyberpunk 2077 includes a feature most big games with localised languages do not.CD Projekt Red, known for being a perfectionist studio – even if it means overworking staff – has approached Cyberpunk 2077 localisation with the same determination.Cyberpunk 2077, like most big games today, is localised in several languages. Depending on the language and the publisher, you don’t often get everything everywhere. Most commonly, companies translate the text and record new dialogue and leave it at that.Rarely do we get actual lip-syncing that matches the spoken language. But apparently not in…

Cyberpunk 2020 creator Mike Pondsmith recently spoke about putting the punk in Cyberpunk 2077, noting that “it’s bad out there but you can handle it – if you’re badass enough.” The news comes from a recent report published by Red Bull on the music of Cyberpunk 2077, in which Pondsmith discussed the way punk music directly influenced the creation of his dystopian universe.“It’s not just the philosophical attitude of the punk scene and it’s not just the music,” Pondsmith said. “Everything about punk inspired Cyberpunk originally. There is an inherent type of personal rebellion that is so specific to punk,…

Cyberpunk 2077: “We aren’t 100% happy with melee, we’re working on it,” says CD Projekt RED

Cyberpunk 2077 is still a little way from its November release date, and CD Projekt RED is still grinding out improvements to areas of the game – particularly in melee.It’s fair to say that melee was one of the weaker links of the game back when we played the first four hours of Cyberpunk 2077 back in June. We described it as a “simple but fun”, and reminiscent of the combat in The Elder Scrolls games, which is fine – but when compared to the very legitimately shooter-like blasting in the game, it felt a little on the weak side.The…
