'Cyberpunk 2077' Will Feature Fully Motion-Captured Sex Scenes
What do we want? Gratuitously realistic motion-captured sex scenes! Where do we want them? In 2077! That is Cyberpunk 2077, to be exact, which has now been confirmed by developers CD Projekt RED to ship with some of the highest fidelity hanky panky you'll have clapped your mince pies on.
Speaking at a recent community Q&A event at the New Meta Gaming Bar in Warsaw, Poland, Cyberpunk 2077 devs answered a wide variety of topics about the hotly anticipated game, which we'll get to in a moment. But for now, please join me in enjoying how this reddit post detailing the Q&A, describes the sex scenes...
"About sex scenes: they did a lot of mo-cap for these and they believe that their amount should satisfy everyone, which should calm down anyone who assumed that they will just skip those entirely just because the game is in first person."
I can just imagine a huge swathe of randy fans breathing a massive sigh of relief that the amount of scenes are going to "satisfy everyone", and the devs have clearly gone all in (phrasing) on this portion of the game. There's just something about that that gives me a warm feeling in my tummy (phrasing?).
But on a more serious note, it's nice to see that CD Projekt aren't in the business of toning down the sex scenes to make those pesky ratings boards happy. It was also reportedly stated during the Q&A that players will be free to pursue as little or as many sexual relationships as they'd like, with whichever gender they like. That's the kind of inclusivity we should be welcoming in gaming, so more of that please.
The full Q&A (noted down by redditor /shavod) also goes into some detail about other aspects of the game, including that the day/night cycle will affect gameplay. For instance, skulking around at night will make it easier to break into places and take out jabronis standing between you and your objective, but it'll also be harder to see. Because it's, y'know, night time. And you're not a cat. Unless of course you are a cat, in which case meow meow.
CDPR also noted that the overall main story length of Cyberpunk 2077 will in fact be shorter than that of The Witcher 3, but that it will be much more replayable as a compromise. With Cyberpunk being an RPG with multiple character classes, you'd have assumed as much, but it's nice to get that clarification.
Naturally it's hard to confirm that Shavod was actually at the event, but the global community lead for CDPR Marcin Momot (as noted and reported by PC Gamer) commented on the post congratulating Shavod for coming third place in a quiz on the night.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be releasing (phrasing) on April 16th 2020 for PlayStation, Xbox, PC and Google Stadia.
