Night City Wire Episode 1 only shows the prologue but, it shows a lot
The first episode of Cyberpunk 2077’s ‘Night City Wire’ streamed on Twitch earlier today revealing all sorts of new content. We got a lot from the 25-minute presentation but it barely scratched the surface of what we can expect from the game’s story. All content relating to the plot has been taken from the prologue.
Watch the first episode of Night City Wire right now!
Variety of localized subtitles available!

The new trailer features, from what we can guess, the events leading up to the inciting incident of the game. Jackie guides the Protagonist through the sights of Night City to then prepare to take a high-risk job with a fixer, Dex, only for it to go south. It’s hard to fully piece together what and how the plan goes wrong but we can expect a lot of violence, blackmail, and possible betrayal.
While on the job the Protagonist brushes shoulders with Adam Smasher, a mercenary turned full cyborg within the story of Cyberpunk 2020. A nasty piece of work that lives by a metal-is-better-than-meat mentality, taking contracts that allow him to freely wreak havoc and leave as many casualties as he pleases.
What is braindance?
Quest developers Paweł Sasko and Patrick Mills gave us a real in-depth look at the Braindance system that will be integral to solving quests throughout the game. Within the world of Cyberpunk, the Braindance is a revolutionary device that draws from a person’s memories way to experience films, video games as well as *other* means of entertainment originally developed to help law enforcement solve crimes. Braindance allows the users to experience all the senses and memory of the subject. This system will play a key part in investigating certain questlines, allowing the player to explore the environment and look at it from a different perspective to solve puzzles.
Not only did Night City Wire go into depth about the gameplay but upcoming anime series Cyberpunk Edgerunners was also announced and slated for a 2022 release. Studio Trigger, most known for Kill la Kill and Little Witch Academia, is working on the project as a standalone series set in the Cyberpunk universe but following the story of some new characters.
On top of all this, anyone who purchases the game for PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade their game if they ever purchase a PlayStation 5 just like the Xbox counterpart. A couple more episodes of Night City Wire are expected to release so make sure to check back when more details are revealed!
