Perhaps one of the most fascinating parts of the gameplay demo is finally getting to see how jacking in works, and during the Maelstrom mission to recover the Militech drone, V jacks into a ganger to access their network.

The title of the stream is now called "Data Transmission in Progress".

After teasing users with a unusual Twitch stream today that simply spat out a series of characters, the game's full-length demo - previously only shown off behind closed doors - kicked off, much to the surprise of fans. As of press time, the stream is now connected to the Twitch game category "Cyberpunk 2077".

The fact that the game is still in development and that things can change was echoed by Game Director Adam Badowski in a press release that followed the gameplay reveal. The player and a partner are moving through the building in search of a particular target that's only referred to as "the girl". Most importantly the character that was being played in this demo was the male protagonist. As such, there might be some visual differences between this demo and the final game. The location is the "most violent and unsafe metropolis of the corporate-ruled future".

Finalized in 2015, the plan would by 2030 reduce emissions from coal-fired power plants from about a third lower than 2005 levels. "But I'm getting rid of some of these ridiculous rules and regulations, which are killing our companies ... and our jobs".

Not only that, CD Projekt Red also talked about the weapon that players will have access to in the game. What Cyberpunk 2077 is aiming for, however, is the integration of gameplay into these choices, as opposed to binary dialogue choices.

While this is the first time that the general public has seen the game, others have already seen the demo before. The Cyberpunk 2077 footage itself appears to be the same walkthrough that took place behind closed doors at E3.

CD Projekt Red producer Richard Borzymowski revealed in an interview with Engadget that the upcoming dystopian game is actually playable from start to finish.
