If you’re a fan of cyberpunk then you’ve probably already beamed directly into your brain each videogame that is set in a grim dystopian future by now. Deus Ex, Shadowrun, Technobabylon – you beat those long ago, right? Bet you can’t wait for Cyberpunk 2077 then, huh? But CD Projekt Red’s huge RPG seems to be a long way off at the moment. Until then, you’ll need another game to send pleasure pulsing through your body.
That game should be 2084. It’s a first-person shooter set in a cyberpunk world that lets you hack the environment as well as your enemies to get the advantage. It was initially born out of a 72-hour game jam but the team has since then turned it into a fully featured game now available on Steam Early Access.
In it, you play as Laura Lofi, who’s a junior researcher at Chiron Incorporated, as she’s sent on a mission into a horrific post-apocalyptic labyrinth. Due to an infection spreading through the neuro implants of citizens the population has gone berserk. You have to help Laura out by shooting down the hordes of enemies rushing at her and making the most of computer hacking commands to outmanoeuvre them.
While 2084 is currently in Early Access, it does have a story mode to play through and an endless mode so you can test out your skills. There will be more weapons, enemies, and hacking scenarios in the lead up to the game’s full release, which is expected in 2020.
