As fans wait for more gameplay footage and release news, Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red has sent a special message Twitter followers.
To celebrate the studio's 2077th tweet, CD Projekt decided to go off brand and thank fans ahead of the Cyberpunk release date.
“This is our 2077th tweet and we think you’d agree that it’s too awesome of a number for us not to send you guys a special message!” reads the CD Projekt tweet.
“Normally we’d be in character, sending you funny gifs or pics of cybercats, but this time around, we wanted to say something off brand.
“Each day we’re here with you guys – celebrating Cyberpunk, sharing news, making new friends and giving you studio insider info.
“Staying directly in touch means we can better understand who you are and what you like about video games (including this particular one). This, in turn, enables us to talk with the dev team (which also read this account daily), so they have a good picture of what you expect.”
The message contained very little in the way of new information, although the studio confirmed that Cyberpunk would be a very big game when it launches.
Konami recently announced that they’re working on the latest of the sniper arcade series, with Silent Scope: Bone Eater. They also just shared a look at the game’s opening video featuring its new anime-style protagonists.
While the game is similar to the ’90s shooter with zoom-in sniping features, it also has a networking feature that lets four machines link up. Also, the soundtrack definitely has some sort of Metal Gear Solid vibe going for it. Well, except that it’s more upbeat.
Silent Scope: Bone Eater is currently in development for arcades. Read more stories about Arcade & Silent Scope: Bone Eater & Videos on Siliconera. Read more at https://www.siliconera.com/2014/07/23/new-silent-scope-games-opening-video-shows-characters/#GVcQwl3KVocCh8wG.99
