CD Projekt Red has been drip feeding gorgeous Cyberpunk 2077 concept art for weeks now. We've seen the smog-laden slums of Santo Domingo (opens in new tab) and the pristine billionaire nest that is Westbrook (opens in new tab), among others. The latest drop shows Heywood, which is a bit of a mix of the aforementioned two: it's situated right in the thick of Night City, and demonstrates the stark realities of its wealth distribution.

It's concept art of course, so the world itself may differ in fidelity when the game launches proper on November 19. But these images definitely look the part: overwhelming density, neon-lit underpasses, and questionable fashion. Here's everything we know about Cyberpunk 2077 (opens in new tab).
