A new Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay feature has reportedly been revealed, providing even more information on what PS4, Xbox One, and PC gamers will be able to do in the game's vast and cyberpunk open-world come this September. While it looks like there will be a big emphasis on shooting in the role-playing game, according to The Neon Arcade, the game also features a robust melee system that comes complete with blocking and parrying. Further, in addition to lethal guns, there will be plenty of lethal weapons, like katanas and mantis blades. The latter we already mostly knew about, but it was unclear how deep the melee system was, but it appears it will be as deep as the combat system in CD Projekt Red's previous game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The news comes way of YouTube channel The Neon Arcade, and unfortunately not much else about the melee system is revealed, at least nothing too salient. That said, it sounds like melee will be as much of an option as shooting in the game, though it remains to be seen if you get beat the entire game without using guns.
In addition to this, Nvidia has also revealed a trio of new screenshots showing off the gorgeous cyberpunk game. More specifically, the new screenshots show off what looks like a car the protagonist can have, a motorcycle they can ride, the protagonist themselves, and more. The screenshots are notably part of the larger news that the game will arrive on GeForce Now, packing real-time ray tracing.
