Sandbox describes a game where the player is allowed to modify the world and decide how they want to play. Open world is just a game without the restriction of the traditional 'level' structure and thus set in a large (usually) seamless expanse of terrain. LA Noire/Mafia II are open world because you can't really do much beyond what the game allows you to do. Just Cause 2/Saints Row 2 etc are sandbox as you can do whatever the hell you like.

Though I agree with your examples, I don't think that either Saints Row or Just Cause let you modify the world, particularly.

To me a sandbox is more about toys; ie if you have a lot of toys in your game then it becomes a sandbox. People naturally expect sandbox games to be open world, I guess, hence games like Saints being offered as examples. I'd say Hitman is a sandbox game.

Anyway, sorry for the derail. I just hate the use of 'sandbox' to describe a game's genre.

A sci fi game with artwork that looks akin to that of Foss would.be.amazing.

An thats how it looks to me. Its the one artist who's had loads of covers used but never a game based around a similar artwork.

Except Homeworld, of course.

The game's something like 2 years away from release isn't it ? Bound to be a CGI trailer.

It is. But if it's as good or better than the Deus Ex one, it'll still be a treat and it will give a nice idea of the vibe they're going for.

There's a hidden message (more like blog post) in the trailer, which explains the game is a long way away and they are looking for people to join their dev team. They also mention they'll be revealing a brand new open world game which is nearer completion on Feb 5th.

The message:

Do you like our latest creation? We certainly hope so :) You may remember that we sometimes send you guys secret messages like this. It's a great way to speak to you instead of burying ourselves in corporate mumbo-jumbo so let's begin!

First of all - have you noticed all the details in our teaser (yes it's a teaser, we'll make a proper trailer in the future) if you know the cyberpunk setting there are some things you can spot. Like implants - look fo rthe weapon hands and the real gun -- corporate emblems that should look familiar and more. Happy Hunting!

You're probably curious about the release date. It's currently scheduled a way off in 2015 but in truth the delivery date is more like "When it's done." We will release cyberpunk to you when we're convinced it is nothing but pure, refined, unadulterated awesome. We want i tot be the most kick ass futuristic RPG ever - ok, maybe this sounds pretty bully, but it is our actual goal! You judge if we deliver it!

OH -- and you may wonder why we announced our game so early before the release. The reason is that we're still building our dev team. So if you are a talented dude or dudette, willing to work in a really different company (Gamers rule & boring corporate stuff drools!!) on a super ambitious project, send us your application right now! careers@cdprojektred.com

So you want to know what kind of game cyberpunk 2077 will be? The short description is that it will be a story-heavy nonlinear open world RPG based on the well known cyberpunk pen&paper system and setting. Building open world games is something we are mastering right now, and we believe that properly joining nonlinear gameplay with excellent storytelling will bring a totally new quality. HHH we'll tell some more about it soon!

And that's not all that's new we are about to reveal. Our other project, which is much closer to being completed (and yes it will also be a fully open-world game with an intense story you can probably guess the game we're talking about ) on the 5th of February it will all be clear.

So stay tuned, as we will have quite a lot to show and tell you soon!

We are waiting for you on our newly created forum called Afterlife --what other name could we have chosen for it? :)

CD Projekt RED team.

I must say it's really weird to see how people still fall for CGI stuff nowadays. There's been pretty much a page of people looking forward to what they know will be a rendered trailer. I just find it really bizarre when you think of all the hoo hah over fmv stuff even before the 00's. And this is a hardcore gaming forum where you'd think people would be not fussed/interested/see through this kind of thing.. :huh:

I don't know about everybody else, but I just wanted to see a glimpse of the atmosphere and look they are going for. Especially since this is from CD Projekt RED one of my favourite devs and arguably the best RPG developers out there right now. And I think it's great that we're starting to see some honest to god Cyberpunk RPGs again, I love that for a setting ever since Shadowrun on the SNES. So yeah, I'm pretty fucking excited to see this even if the game is still so far off.
