First impressions of Cyberpunk 2077 have started rolling in after a number of journalists spent time with a demo of the upcoming CD Projekt game. However only IGN’s preview seems to have unearthed a very important feature of the game: that you can, in fact, pet the cat.
The preview unfortunately didn’t go into too much detail on whether there is just a single, pettable cat to be found, or whether multiple are dispersed throughout the game, but it’s still a big improvement on The Witcher 3’s disappointingly Witcher-averse cats. Whether dogs are present or pettable in Cyberpunk 2077 still has yet to be seen.
While “can you pet the dog?” has long been an important question in video game criticism, inspired by the Twitter account of the same name, cats are only just starting to get the same kind of recognition in virtual petting.
