Default Cyberpunk 2077 - Interview @AusGamers

October 21st, 2019, 12:03
AusGamers have interviewed CD Projekt RED about Cyberpunk 2077.

As a studio, CD Projekt Red is pushing the visual envelope with Cyberpunk. Even though The Witcher III still looks fantastic and can put any high-end gaming rig through its paces, Cyberpunk 2077 is taking everything to the next level. And in one case, the next-generation of hardware. "We started working on that about a year ago," John tells me when asked about Cyberpunk's use of real-time ray-tracing. "It's not something we started with because ray-tracing is also a recent thing within the industry. And we use ray-tracing for emissive lights to make adverts and the neon lighting you see look amazing. We also use ray-traced ambient occlusion and ray-tracing for the skyline."

Although PC-specific, and at launch tied to hardware from NVIDIA - Cyberpunk 2077 will look impressive no matter the platform it's played on. Advanced shadow effects from long range shadows and contact shadows, to new Houdini physics simulations for particle effects, fluids, cloth, and more. The tech team is still hard at work in some key areas, with the Global Illumination (GI) used in Cyberpunk still being refined and improved upon. To hit a mark that goes beyond anything we've seen from the studio before.

So does this look like something that is going to require a new video card?

I say no. Raytracing is still a buzzword any PR will adore but I have yet to see such extreme difference that'd persuade me into buying a new GPU just because of it.

In the near future, sure, a new GPU will be required not because of some spectacle but because the technology will evolve and all engines will move to RT. Just like all engines moved to hairworks. Um… Wait…

I wrote to Adam Kiciński – President, Joint CEO of CD Projekt Red and congratulated him for the excellent quality of their nude bodies and how well they respond to physics. I requested the game be filled up with hardcore porn scenes and he heartily agreed! So now my dream of playing a Cyberpunk Porn Game will be fulfilled at last..
