Such a good look, glad the game isn't super grey looking.

I did not expect the game to look this warm and colourful.

From the original reveal trailer I expected something far darker and colder, like the first GitS film.

Honestly, they don't really need to put out trailers. They have so much benefit of the doubt from me right now. Still watched it though.

Looks about what I expected and hoped. They really nailed the cyberpunk-look. Even better, since it's CDPR, it's not just going to be how the game looks. Witcher had so much great content, especially Witcher 3. Very hyped right now.

So.. anybody knows what those keys are actually for? I tried like 2 dozens of them, but they're all already taken, probably didn't help that I watched the stream with like 30 minutes delay.

Hell yes! This looks like it's going to not only be everything I wanted, but also everything I didn't even know I wanted! Super pumped!

It looks pretty great, but also looks like a departure from the tone of the first trailer. Not at all what I was expecting.

If you know anything about the source material this was pretty expected tbh. There was no way it was going to be pure dark and gritty.

Here's the hidden text from the trailer. I wonder if this trailer is representative of the game's visuals and animations.

Someone at CDPR really got sick of hearing people make fun of the gravely-voiced Witcher protagonist and pulled a hard 180.

CDPR had nothing to do with that first trailer, it was outsourced IIRC, so I knew the game would likely be pretty different. It looks like the deep, massive Cyberpunk RPG we've always wanted but never had. Probably my game of E3 so far.

Multiple people have put together the two cut messages that flashed into the trailer and it's a personal note from CDPR. They still don't know when the game is going to release, there will be character creation, and there was a jab at microtransactions and how they wont have any. They'll also be showing more at their booth.

I'm thinking a late 2020 release date at the earliest.

Thematically perfect, and sadly probably that far away.

What a look, what a logo. I'm holding out for gameplay but they've definitely got a good vibe with their world.

The news of it being a single-player, story-driven experience with no microtransactions is also very welcome.

Pretty amazing that Microsoft opted to show this as their final send off premiere rather than Halo or Gears.

Incredible visuals as expected.

Thankyfully character creation is a thing because the generic white protagonist with terrible VO is about as unimaginative as it gets.

Everything about this trailer is giving me chills despite trying to remain calm. The quick vignettes of people going about their day in that city really sold it. The style of that car alone is just perfect.

Such a great showing from Microsoft this year. I'm glad Phil Spencer is getting the budget to make the big bets necessary to turn things around this generation. 2017 was hardware. 2018 is games.

Hah, yeah I completely understand that sentiment but if I can play as York, yo I'm gonna.

Commander Shepard of Mass Effect was my first thought seeing him. I am also glad there will be character customization, but I'm also a bit disappointed that even CDPR felt the need to go with a generic white dude with a buzz cut as their marketing protagonist, when they had the freedom to pick basically anything. But I guess that's just how it is.

Assuming that CDPR wouldn't is giving them too much credit.

Glad to see the visuals go beyond rain, fog, and neon. Don't know much about the Cyberpunk RPGs but it looks like there might be some proper neuromanceresque cyberspace.

@rocketskates: I guess? I mean they've never really been trend setters in that department I suppose, but as a business they are known to be a bit of an outlier. They had more freedom to go outside the norm than an EA or Activision.

It's not so much an expectation as just a bit of disappointment at them wasting the opportunity.

I got to feel legitimate excitement twice during Microsoft's conference. First with Dying Light 2 (it's about time) and then with this trailer. What a huge snag for them to get this. What an incredible conference.
