Let’s be honest, The Cyberpunk 2077 hypetrain has no breaks and anything related to this game is just more fuel for the fire. That’s why it’s important that we take a look at some newly revealed concept art that may have no bearing on the game whatsoever.

The images come courtesy of the game’s Twitter page.

Each image showcases Cyberpunk 2077‘s ability to blend the world of science fiction with grounded human imagery that makes this future seem possible. Though we’ve seen similar scenes in the Cyberpunk 2077 teaser trailer, the original artwork has slight differences.

The first image depicts a man hooked up to some sort of Matrix-style VR simulation. While that’s par for the course for images of the future, the details such crushed soda cans and a Gundam-looking action figure atop the EKG give the person on the chair a backstory. Frankly, I don’t mind that he is remotely assassinating a member of this Arasaka company board.

Next, we get an image that is all too real for me as a New Yorker. Not because I’m used to cyborg hitmen, but because I know that what’s going on in the backseat of a yellow cab is never of any real importance to the driver, whose Sikh decorations adorn the car. The cracked glass between the driver and passengers reminding the viewer that this driver has seen worse.

This was one of the most striking scenes from the teaser trailer: a synthetic human making cosmetic alteration to itself. I’m guessing makeup tutorials are still a thing in 2077. She appears to be getting ready for a night out, which is, of course, only complete with the pistol on her desk.

Finally, a scene we didn’t get in the teaser trailer of a mercenary and man’s best friend. Wheather this pup makes it into the game, I’m betting he’ll be in contention for best heckin boi of the year.

Cyberpunk 2077 has no release date or even release window, but you can check out DualShockers for every morsel of information that is dropped about the game.
