CDPR: Choices in Cyberpunk 2077 Will Shape V More Than They Did for Geralt
Despite the fact that there’s no release window or year confirmed for Cyberpunk 2077, fans are holding out for every little piece of information, and thankfully CD Projekt RED has been talking about their game a lot lately. Just yesterday the Cyberpunk 2077 writer, Stanislaw Swiecicki, confirmed that the game will feature a dynamic weather system and now in a new interview, he discussed a few more interesting tidbits about the highly anticipated title.
CD Projekt RED writer discussed Cyberpunk 2077 in a new interview published on the latest issue of GamesMaster, giving fans not only one, but rather a few exciting pieces of information. The first thing he talked about was just how important choices within the game will be, and while we’ve already heard a little bit about this, he compared it to the Witcher trilogy. In fact, he stated that the consequences of player choice in Cyberpunk 2077 will have way more of an impact on V, the protagonist, than they ever did for Geralt in the Witcher series. “Every well-established protagonist needs a story, and our character is no exception. That said, the choices players make will play a huge part in shaping V on more levels than they ever have in our previous games. Whereas Geralt was a professional, a veteran monster slayer who knew the world inside out, V is a hired gun looking to make the big leagues. When you look at it this way, V’s perspective isn’t too different from the player’s, who is also just getting to know Night City and deciding their stance towards it.”
Święcicki also made it clear to choose wisely when making upgrades as sold by the Ripper Docs, the vendors selling these cyberware upgrades. “That’s still something we’re working on and it’s too early to dive into details just yet, but choices you make, whether during character creation or gameplay, will matter and have consequences.” Lastly, the writer revealed some of the themes players will have to deal with in the story. “You can’t beat a story which touches on universal human values and emotions such as dedication, sadness, loss, friendship, or love. I personally think these values matter all the more in a world in which the human body is no longer ‘sacred’ and the very meaning of what ‘humanity’ is becomes blurred.”
Fingers crossed that CD Projekt RED will reveal a release window at Gamescom later this month. Are you even more excited about the release of Cyberpunk 2077 after reading these exciting tidbits? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and don’t forget to keep it locked for updates!
