At the start of today’s Night City Wire, CD Projekt Red discussed the three paths of living in Cyberpunk 2077, the Life Paths, while also revealing some additional details.
The background of our character will be three: Corporate, Street Kid, and Nomad, all present in the new gameplay video present at the bottom.
If you would like to play as a Nomad, you will patrol the outskirts of the city living away from the hustle and bustle that Night City has to offer. As a Corporate, you will be born into a life of luxury and business, with the protagonist moving from one skyscraper to another skyscraper and engaging in business deals with other companies and individuals. Finally, a Street Kid will live entirely in Night City and knows how to move and who to talk to.
The path you choose will affect the beginning of your story and your initial ability to interact with people within Night City. For example, a Street Kid knows slang and gangs, while a Nomad has to figure out how to get into Night City and live early in the game.
The opportunities to use your life path further in the game arise in optional dialogue options and ways to deal with different missions and situations within them. So, it is confirmed that depending on the chosen life paths, players will have a different start.
Cyberpunk 2077 will release on November 19, 2020, on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 platforms, and later on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
