CD Projekt RED has revealed a number of key aspects of Cyberpunk 2077 in the past couple of weeks, including the presence of dynamic weather and multiple difficulty settings. Players will also be able to attack most NPCs in the game, although not children or those characters crucial to the plot.
One of the key features in Cyberpunk 2077 are Lifepaths, which determine the type of background your character has and features different playable prologues based on your choices.
Pleasingly, CD Projekt RED has confirmed that the console versions of Cyberpunk 2077 will not be compromised in terms of quality. However, despite previous reports, the company is not working on multiple games set within the Cyberpunk universe.
No idea what Cyberpunk 2077 is all about? Here’s the official blurb:
Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification. You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character’s cyberware, skillset and playstyle, and explore a vast city where the choices you make shape the story and the world around you.
