You'll need to play CD Projekt Red's RPG Cyberpunk 2077 from four to six hours to reach the game's opening title card. The prologue, which mainly focuses on tutorials is like a game inside the game according to reports.
Yesterday, CD Projekt Red released the final episode of Night City Wire where they revealed new gameplay trailer, talked about the original score and interviewed Keanu Reeves. On top of this, some people were lucky to play another 16 hours of Cyberpunk 2077 for their final previews.
In one of these previews, IGN's Tom Marks reveals that Cyberpunk 2077's prologue is quite a ride. Apparently, it takes up to six hours of gameplay before you even reach the opening title card.
"It took me roughly six hours of playing to reach Cyberpunk 2077’s opening title card," he wrote in his piece.
According to other reports, the prologue is basically a long tutorial that explains many gameplay mechanics and other features that Cyberpunk 2077 brings.
Long prologues and epilogues in games are nothing new of course. For example, Rockstar Games' mammoth Red Dead Redemption 2 had a quite a lengthy epilogue, which was like its own story and game, independent of the main plot.
It's safe to say that CD Projekt Red are aiming for a similar experience with their own game.
