Today, in celebration of the fifth anniversary of Mad Max: Fury Road, the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account posted a GIF showcasing a vehicle inspired by that movie.
Dubbed the Reaver, this is a custom vehicle driven by members of the Wraith gang, whose emblem is a circle filled with skulls, coupled with the name of the gang. This can be seen in the tweet above on the doors of the car, and in case the compression is too much, here’s a clearer Imgur link.
This vehicle is based on a Quadra Type-66 – the same brand as Jackie’s car from the 48-minute gameplay demo – with a massive near 1,000 horsepower figure. It’s been confirmed that what you see above is in-game, which means this is our first look at an environment we haven’t seen much of until today. We got a glimpse of this desert-like territory outside of Night City in that aforementioned 48-minute gameplay demo, but now we can see it in a bit more detail. Dubbed The Badlands, this area is home to two antagonistic factions, the Aldecados, and the already mentioned Wraiths.
Cyberpunk 2077 is coming September 17, but until then, CD Projekt RED has an event planned for June 11 called Night City Wire, where “stuff will be shown”. If you like to see stuff, then that’s what you should be on the lookout for. Furthermore, CDPR’s upcoming title was among the first revealed to be supporting Smart Delivery, which allows folks to buy the Xbox One version and receive the Series X upgrade for free when that’s available and of course, when they upgrade to the next-gen Microsoft console.
