Google Stadia users will be getting in on CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077.

Google posted a trailer on their Stadia branded YouTube channel announcing the game for the platform.

The trailer shows some scenes in the Cyberpunk world, and we get to see some motorcycle riding.

The motorcycle is a departure from the car we have seen up to this point, so hinting at multiple vehicle gameplay is a welcome sight. (Related: CD Projekt Red Confirms No In-Game Pre-Order Bonuses for Cyberpunk 2077)

There is also a dev diary video posted shortly after the trailer that details the Cyberpunk 2077 world. It gives us an overview of the grim and gritty dystopian future that the game is.

 

The Dev diary also gives us a little insight into Johnny Silverhand, which is the character played by Keanu Reeves. Johnny will be the player’s guide to the world, and he’ll accompany the player through the majority of the game. (Related: Google Releases New Details About Stadia Including Game Lineup!)

The devs went on highlight the fact that the Stadia version will allow you to play across all your devices.  Aside from the Stadia advantages, they go on to explain that Cyberpunk is a game you can play any way you like. There’s no certain order to mission completion or a certain style of play to complete it. Your character is unique. They explain that the existential questions raised and the exploration of our humanity will keep players invested.

The devs also expressed the hope that our real life future doesn’t mirror the Cyberpunk 2077 universe.

I have to admit, I am not sold on the Google Stadia service. I just don’t feel the streaming service will supplant PC or console. I truly believe Cyberpunk 2077 will shine the brightest on the PC, followed closely by console.

Cyberpunk 2077 is due out on April 16th, 2020 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia.

What do you think? Will Cyberpunk 2077 be the jewel of Google Stadia? Give us your thoughts below.
