A new German TV spot for Cyberpunk 2077, which was supposed to launch this week before the latest delay pushed it out to the 10th of December, has given us just over a minute of new footage.
Not much was seen or told that we didn't know about already, but we did get some new angles on Johnny Silverhand - so we'll call it a win!
The voiceover, as far as we gathered, describes some features and part of the backstory for the game, while V slowly strolls through the streets of Night City as we've never seen them before, giving us a better feel for the world we'll be exploring come December.

The most interesting part of this hot minute of footage comes when we get a very, very speedy preview of the character creator and the various customization options that will be available to us. These options, surprisingly, also include teeth. We'll be able to pick from a wide variety of teeth colours and possibly detailing too - the video quality doesn't make this clear. A bunch of hairstyles and facial implants are briefly visible as well.
We also get a handful of seconds of new Johnny Silverhand dialogue, over the course of which the hundred-year-old rockstar does his fair share of digital flickering, making it clear that V is seeing a hologram or digital ghost as opposed to the man himself, who is presumed dead. We imagine there will be some major plot twists involved regarding his true fate, but like everyone else, we have to wait and see.
The interior and exterior scenes throughout Night City really drive home the point of how expansive the game world is going to be, considering the raw footprint of the map fails to account for the verticality the huge skyscrapers lend it. We'll be spending many an hour combing over this neon-drenched playground when Cyberpunk 2077 finally launches on the 10th of December.
