What will Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer be? Data miners have found the first clues

Image Description

Cyberpunk 2077’s multiplayer mode – which likely won’t be ready until 2022 – has had some early details apparently spilled thanks to data miners.

As spotted by DSO Gaming, which claims to have verified the information contained within the game’s executable, there are currently two multiplayer modes which will be implemented: deathmatch and heist.

The former is, obviously enough, a simple deathmatch mode where you’re just going after the other players. The heist mode will seemingly be structured like a quest, presumably co-op missions of some kind (GTA Online has heists, of course), and players will be able to choose from different character classes (assassin, techie, and netrunner are mentioned).

Another nugget of info dropped is that there are references to peer-to-peer (P2P) connections that the data miners found, hinting that the plan might be to eschew dedicated servers for multiplayer.

Caution first

We’d be very cautious about that latter prospect, though, and of course the whole multiplayer side of Cyberpunk 2077 is still under development – possibly relatively early development, given what we’ve heard about the release being planned for next year – so all the ideas floating about here could (and indeed probably will) change.

At any rate, even mere talk of multiplayer at this point will doubtless have many folks grumbling about fixing the existing single player game first (although it is admittedly in better shape on the PC than consoles). There’s also the distinct possibility that CD Projekt Red will feel the pressure to ensure that the multiplayer isn’t buggy for obvious reasons – again pointing to a long development road ahead.

We recently heard that CD Projekt Red is under investigation by a Polish regulator, and could be fined a hefty amount if its measures to fix Cyberpunk 2077 aren’t deemed satisfactory.

  • Zoom expands AI-powered tools for salespeople

    As more and more businesses continue to return to offices, Zoom is looking to cement its position as one of the best enterprise apps out there. 

    At its recent Work Transformation Summit, the  video conferencing giant unveiled Zoom IQ for Sales, an AI-powered service for salespeople that is able to quickly analyze sales meetings and produce insights. 

    Zoom IQ is an add-on for Zoom Meetings and aims to help organisations become more efficient by highlighting important insights that might otherwise be missed. The service is integrated in Zoom (naturally), Salesforce, and other enterprise services. 

    A platform for work 

    “Zoom is always searching for ways to help our customers elevate their end customers’ experience and Zoom IQ for Sales is the latest development in that journey,” Zoom's Josh Dulberger told TechCrunch

    “Zoom IQ for Sales … [can] identify opportunities, assess risks and ultimately enable and improve sales team performance. It uses natural language processing models to process post-meeting transcripts and deal progress data, generating insights for sales reps and managers.”

    Zoom IQ for Sales is available now as an add-on for Zoom Meetings customers with the company adding that support for Zoom Phone is also coming soon

    While Zoom was an early winner from the pandemic, its fortunes since have been mixed. The company's stock, which rocketed up and to the right in 2020, has come back to earth with a thud. 

    After reaching a high of $559 in October 2020, Zoom now trades at $114, a not unrespectable figure but a far cry from where it has been. 

    Efforts like IQ for Sales are Zoom's attempt at expanding its usefulness to organisations beyond purely video calls – and compete with Microsoft Teams.

    After being a little slow off the block, Microsoft went into overdrive to build and promote Teams, which seamlessly integrated with the broader Microsoft 365 suite. 

    Microsoft's ploy worked: Teams now has over 270 million monthly active users, according to the company, up from around 250 million in July 2021. 

    Whether Zoom can catch up remains to be seen, but tools like IQ for Sales are a very good starting point.
