Here’s How Cyberpunk 2077 Character Creation Can Change the Story

We already know that Cyberpunk 2077 will offer a stunning character creation system as previously discussed, and shown, by the team over at CD Projekt RED. That being said, quest designer Mateusz Tomazkiewicz recently broke down even further how the Cyberpunk 2077 character creation can change the story overall. 

The below video comes courtesy of the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter as the dev talks about the various skills that players will have access to when creating their ideal character. Each skill will offer a very different path, changing up dialogue options, in-game choice, and overall combat approach. Even better, he confirmed that these skills can be modified post-creation, allowing players the freedom to explore exactly who their V is. 

Tomazkiewicz also talked a little bit more about the origin stories, something that was previously revealed during E3. For those that missed out on that particular revelation, he dove deeper into what those paths mean when looking at the Corporate, Street Kid, and Nomad options. 

When we had our own time with the studio earlier this year, the team explained a little more about the three origins, with the “Corpo” tale being less of a thug and more of a corporate sell-out. Each origin story comes with their own perks and their own ways of dealing with danger within Night City. 

Cyberpunk 2077 has done nothing but impress thus far and continues to do so ahead of its launch next year. For those that didn’t get to see the demo from E3, no fear! A similar version has already been confirmed to go live during PAX West later on this year. 

As for the game itself, CD Projekt RED’s brand new IP officially arrives on April 16th, 2020. For more about the game: 

“Cyberpunk 2077 is a narrative-driven, open world RPG set in the most vibrant and dangerous metropolis of the future — Night City. You play as V, a hired gun on the rise, who just got their first serious contract. In a world of cyber-enhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners and corporate life-hackers, today is your first step to becoming an urban legend.”
