“Memorable combat encounters, that thrill and excite our players”.
If there’s one area where CD Projekt RED’s masterpiece The Witcher 3 s criticized, it’s the combat department. While it isn’t fundamentally broken or anything like that, it’s far from being among the game’s best aspects. As such, fans are hoping that combat in the studio’s upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 will be significantly better. As it happens, it looks like CDPR wants that too.
As per a new job ad posted on CD Projekt RED’s official website, the Polish studio is looking to hire a new Combat Designer, to work on the upcoming RPG and help them deliver “memorable combat encounters, that thrill and excite our players”. The ad lists various responsibilities following that, some of which might give you an idea of what style of combat the game might go for.
One of the responsibilities is “to design memorable combat encounters based on predefined narrative, environmental and gameplay themes”, while another is “to script both stealth and action based encounters”, while yet another is “to craft divergent experiences that cater to all available playstyles”. It certainly seems to give the idea that combat is going to be quite dynamic.
Cyberpunk 2077 is without any sort of a release date as of yet. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for constant coverage on the game.
