Cyberpunk 2077 – The Making of a Trailer

The trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 (featured above) came out a bit ago and got people excited for CD Projekt RED’s next game. There’s not a whole lot on the game yet as it’s not set to release until 2015.

Cyberpunk 2077 will feature a decadent futuristic world in which ultra-modern technology co-exists with a degenerated human society. The game aims to be a mature, ambitious title with character customization being strongly tied to the plot.

What really got everyone stirring was how great of a CG trailer it was. What got me stirring was when they released this behind the scenes and making-of feature. I posted about something similar for Mechwarrior Online a while back and this look into how they created the video for Cyberpunk 2077 is no less exciting.

Seeing the artwork and the development process is fascinating, even more so when I saw they used live actors to capture the characters in order to put them into the scene. The amount of effort that goes into creating something like this is no small feat and I think a vast majority of people have no idea what it can take to make a 2-3 minute CG trailer.
