What Is CyberPunk 2077?

By now you've probably heard all the buzz. If you were not part of the band wagon before, the delay drama, and fan base; #CyberPunk2077 is out and about. Consoles and PC have access to the game, and if you're considering partaking in the #NeverEndingStory that is #NightCity consider the game overview below. Wouldn't want you jumping in head first and frying all those neurons. #NetRunnerLife, go figure.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a 2020 action role-playing video game developed and published by #CDProjekt. The story takes place in Night City, an open world set in the Cyberpunk universe. Players assume the first-person perspective of a customisable mercenary known as V, who can acquire skills in hacking and machinery with options for melee and ranged combat.

Cyberpunk is a #dystopiantabletop role-playing game written by Mike Pondsmith and published by R. Talsorian Games. It is typically referred to by its second or fourth edition names, Cyberpunk 2020 and Cyberpunk Red, in order to distinguish it from the genre after which it is named. Our 2077 here unofficially is the 2020 redux. We're in the future ya'll.

Disclaimer: Experiences may vary depending on the platform you choose to play the game on too!

Life Path

There are three “Life Paths” that you can choose in Cyberpunk 2077 at the start of the game. The Nomad, Street Kid, and Corpo (corporate) paths will determine the early story and starting location for your character.

Your life path choice isn't a frivolous element in the game. On the contrary, it can affects your social status and therefore how your story can unfold in a variety of ways:

  • Starting destination

  • The Prologue

  • Prologue length

  • Dialogue options

  • Starting clothes

  • Characters they meet

Each Life Path has exclusive missions, and every now and then you'll see options for V to refer to their Life Path in a conversation. While this is generally inconsequential, it is only something you can experience while on different life paths.
