    5.56 minutes in he conforms you cannot play offline. There are no NPC's and you can't pick non PVP? What on earth are they thinking.

    This is going to be a Trolls dream game.

    Pretty sure it applies to vast majority of the games though...

    Bullshots and target renders are common, yes. But CDPR really outdid everyone with the Witcher 3 downgrade. Even the infamous Watch_Dogs E3 2012 reveal was not butchered to the same degree in the shipping game.

    Well, gonna play devil's advocate here and say that I blame console developers, who overestimated their target performance, and therefore so many games had to be degraded.
    Luckily The Witcher 3 still looks good (obviosuly not the way it was intended at first), but most importantly it's actually a good game overall!
    Hopefully CP2077 will look good and have content of the same quality as TW3!

    I know it's still a phenomenal game, but I just hate double standards. Everyone gives Ubisoft crap for downgrading games like Watch_Dogs and Division, but many people give CDPR a pass for doing the same thing (or worse) because they are supposed to be "the good guys".

    I totally feel you. In fact I was also once one of the people who complained about downgraded graphics, until one day I bought a new PC and decided to get TW3... My oh my...
    I think why people have double standards when it comes to the examples you mentioned above is the fact that TW3 isn't all about the graphics.
    Yes, they got downgrades, but that game is more than just graphics, as it pretty much delivered on everything else - story, gameplay, characters, you name it! And heck, even graphics look great!
    And CDPR doesn't get a pass because they are simply good guys. They had to earn it first. And they did so by being honest with players. No lootboxes or payed cosmetic DLC which isn't a part of the season pass, and their season pass actually means quality. 30EUR for two big expansion vs. 50EUR for a couple of story missions which take 4 hours in total to complete. This is why people forgave them downgraded graphics and hold them in high regard.

    In case of Division, not only graphics got downgraded, but the game overall. So it was in effect quite a different game from its E3 presentation.
    And this year's E3 presentation of Division 2 did the same mistake, including that cringey scripter "real" co-op interaction between players.
    Luckily this time people know what to expect from the game, so the backlash won't be too big. Mind you, Division still sold bananas, so I expect this will sell well also.

    Getting back on topic, also happy to see new footage of Metro Exodus and HITMAN 2.

    My list of awaited games (so far):
    - Cyberpunk 2077;
    - HITMAN 2;
    - New Tomb Raider (hell if I'm gonna remember spell the entire name);
    - Metro Exodus.

    And a couple of more I may be interested in:
    - Buttbuttin's Creed Odyssey;
    - Dying Light 2.

    Hmm, kinda interesting to hear it will only have first person perspective. I though it would include both options...

    Cyberpunk 2077’s trailer tried to sneak a bunch of good news past you
    Enhance. Enhance.
    By Ben Kuchera Jun 10, 2018, 7:06pm EDT
    https://www.polygon.com/e3/2018/6/10/17447066/cyberpunk-2077-trailer-hidden-text

    "Cyberpunk 2077 was given an extended preview during Microsoft’s press conference at E3 2018, and that section of the show began with an in-theater effect that made it look like the show was being hacked. It’s a neat trick — even if it’s something we’ve seen before — but the glitchy visuals hid a variety of details about the game, as well as free copies of Witcher 3’s Game of the Year edition.

    I am absolutely delighted to report that multiple people on the Polygon team enhanced the image in a variety of ways to try to get the best look at the text possible. I will neither confirm nor deny that I stood over their shoulder with a stern look on my face repeating the word “enhance.” This is a fun job, and don’t let anyone tell you differently.

    You have to look at multiple frames to get the full text:

    Slides on site...

    So what does it say? Here are some tidbits from the hidden text:
    • CD Projekt Red doesn’t want to hint at a release date. “Quality is the only thing that drives us,” the text says. “It’s the beauty of being an independent studio and your own publisher.”
    • There will be free DLC, and no DRM. “Expect nothing less than you got with The Witcher 3,” it states. “As for DRM, CP2077, will be 100 percent DRM-free on PC.” I’m not sure this includes the DRM that’s built into Steam, but let’s not be picky. This is likely a reference to copies sold on GOG.com, which is owned by CD Projekt.
    • No microtransactions! “In a single player role-playing game?” the text says. “Are you nuts?”
    The full text, as best as we can transcribe, is below. If you see any other secrets in the video, let us know!:

    It’s been over 2077 days since we announced our plan to develop Cyberpunk 2077. We released a CGI trailer, gave some interviews and… went dark. Normal procedure for these kinds of things — you announce a game and then shut up, roll up your sleeves and get to work. We wanted to give you the Witcher 3 and both expansions first, which is why this period of staying silent was longer than we planned. Sorry for that.

    As soon as we concluded work on Blood and Wine, we were able to go full speed ahead with CP2077’s pre-production. But we chose to remain silent. Why? At she point we made the decisions to resume talking about the game when we have something to show. Something meaningful and substantial. This is because we do realize you’ve been impatiently waiting for a very long time, and we wouldn’t like anyone to feel that we’re taking this for granted. On the contrary — it gives us a lot of extra motivation. The hype is real, so the sweat and tears need to be real, too :)

    But to the point. Today is the day. If you’re seeing this, it means you saw the trailer. - our vision for Cyberpunk, an alternative version of the future where America is in pieces, megacorporations control all aspects of civilized life, and gangs rule the rest. And, while this world is full of adrenaline, don’t let the car chases and guns mislead you. Cyberpunk 2077 is a true single player, story-driven RPG. You’ll be able to create your own character and… well, you’ll get to know the rest of what show at our booth at E3. Be on the lookout for the previews!

    Before we finish, you probably have some questions,

    1. When?
    When we told you we would only release the game when it’s ready, we meant it. We’re definitely much closer to a release date than we were back then ;) but it’s still not the time to confirm anything, so patience is still required. Quality is the only thing that drives us. It’s the beauty of being an independent studio and your own publisher.

    2. How big?
    Seriously big, but… to be honest, we have no bloody clue at this point in time. Once we put it all together, we will openly tell you what you can expect. And we promise we’ll do this before we start talking about pre-orders or ask anything of you.

    3. Free DLC/Expansions/DRM
    Expect nothing less than you got with The Witcher 3. As for DRM, CP2077, will be 100% DRM-free on PC.

    4. Microtransactions?
    In a single player role-playing game? Are you nuts?

    Once again, thank you for your patience. If you have a minute, do visit cyberpunk.net and share your opinion (about anything) with us. We read everything you posted we treat it very seriously.

    Yours,
    CD PROJEKT RED Team"
