A full audio recording of the almost hour-long Cyberpunk 2077 behind-closed-doors E3 demo was leaked to the Internet yesterday.
The files in question come via DSOGaming in two parts, which can be found here.
In the since taken down posts, many of the reports on the demo’s contents were confirmed by what can be heard in the leak. A representative from developer CD Projekt Red can be heard walking viewers through the lengthy demo, divulging specific details about the story, gameplay, character customization, and what was being shown in the footage.
Cyberpunk 2077 plays in an alternate timeline. America is in pieces, mega-corporations run all aspects of life, and the streets are run by organized crime.
In a world where everything is literally trying to put you down on your knees, the only way to make a stand for yourself is to carve your own path.
V chooses to exist outside of any system and only obey the rules that she makes. V is a Cyberpunk.
Also featured in the recordings are voiceovers from various NPCs (as well as that of the main protagonist, V, who can be played as either male or female) and sound effects from the game, including gunfire and cybernetic abilities. What can be heard in the leak gives further context into what those in attendance at the E3 presentation got to see.
While leaking information from otherwise private presentations at E3 is never a good look, we hope this encourages CD Projekt Red to release the coveted gameplay footage to the public soon (perhaps at this year’s Gamescom in August?).
Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person, seamless (no load screens!) open-world RPG from the master developer of the universally acclaimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Once again, an emphasis will be put on player choice and making the story your own. Many publications crowned Cyberpunk 2077 as their game of the show at this year’s E3, suggesting that we have a lot to look forward to.

I’m a lover of good stories and good coffee. I still haven’t finished The Witcher 3 yet.
