About Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 is a PC game from the creators of The Witcher series based on the Cyberpunk 2020 tabletop RPG by Mike Pondsmith. The player is sent to the year 2077, where the character he created must survive in the futuristic city of Night City, California. The task is not an easy one – the metropolis is torn apart by gang wars, the intrigues of transnational corporations, and domestic conflicts due to glaring social inequality.

Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 was created at the intersection of genres. A full-fledged RPG with classes, the choice of the hero’s backstory, branching dialogues, role-playing, high variability of passing. The combat system combines elements of shooter, action, and stealth, allowing you to hack computer systems and implants of opponents, but not all at once, depending on the chosen role.

Single-player, with a strong emphasis on storytelling, with constant interactive inserts on the engine and elements of interactive cinema.

Development history

Cyberpunk 2077

The public learned about the start of work on a game based on Cyberpunk in 2012. A full announcement took place at E3 2018, it was reported that Cyberpunk 2077 would definitely be released before the advent of the ninth-generation consoles. The original release date is April 16, 2020.

As the developers progressed from prototype to full-fledged game, Cyberpunk 2077 received conflicting information. So, CD Project abandoned the “psychological gender”, offering the classic male and female body type and voice acting. They promised a first and third-person view but left only the first-person view.

The character class system turned out to be simpler than in the board game, although they promised that it would be on par. It was expected that the game would be only single-player, but later the developers came to the conclusion about the possibility and even the need for multiplayer. With microtransactions like in GTA Online .

History of events

Cyberpunk 2077

The structure of the Cyberpunk world is very different from our reality: technology has developed more intensively, and in politics, elective democracy has been replaced by the corporatocracy, that is, the power of international corporations.

In addition, at the beginning of the 21st century, half of the American states achieved broad autonomy from Washington, but the United States did not break up but formed a confederation. Under the pressure of circumstances, California was divided into North and South, and the border between them runs south of the outskirts of Night City.

The city was founded at the dawn of 2000 by billionaire Richard Knight, who wanted to build a utopia without crime, poverty, and the dictates of government and society. He was supported by corporations, who were attracted by the freedom in the field of unethical development.

By 2077, due to economic crises and protracted wars between gangs and corporations, the metropolis has become a depressed region in which only heroes are remembered – like Johnny Silverhand, the character of Keanu Reeves.

Corporations have abolished human rights and private property, and gangs on the streets have reduced the cost of human life to zero. The ideology of the inhabitants is simple – to be able to profitably present themselves and stand up for themselves, which increased the number of freaks, lunatics, and maniacs on the streets. Night City has become a city of adventurers who find themselves here in search of glory and self-realization. For most, these are just empty promises, illusions, and lies for which they give their lives.

Game world

Cyberpunk 2077

On the physical plane, players will receive 6 key areas from the tabletop:

  • The business center is the heart of the metropolis, occupied by corporate headquarters and wealthy citizens, the focus of luxury, chic lifestyle, and expensive parties. You can easily walk on the streets.
  • Westburg (Japantown) is a relatively prosperous area for wealthy citizens and the middle class. Security is provided by Japanese triads controlled by one of the mega-corporations.
  • Haywood is a suburb that has long since grown into Night City. Conditions are below average, but the people who live here are not poor and have climbed the social ladder. The area is unsafe – Latin American gangs establish orders.
  • Watson – the well-being of the area has fallen along with the finances of corporations, therefore it is occupied by poor immigrants from East Asia. It features a unique mix of Asian cultures, oriental bazaars, and a tangle of narrow streets.
  • Pacific – located on the ocean and could become a tourist paradise, but skyscrapers and piers were not needed, turning into a slum for the poor and a base for bandits. The most dangerous area, for control of which a variety of gangs are fighting bloodily.
  • Santo Domingo is an industrial factory that provides everyone with electricity and jobs. Industrial espionage pushes corporations together, and the ruins capture gangs under their bases.

It is expected that the game world will be truly open to exploration, without invisible walls and unnecessary fences, and it will be possible to enter many buildings. To immerse the player, the life simulation system manages dozens of parameters: NPCs go to work, home, and vacation; talk on the streets with friends; shoot back from the gangs or call an ambulance for the wounded.

There will also be cyberspace, but the Internet and social networks, in the form familiar to us, are absent. The inhabitants of “Cyberpunk” immediately integrated themselves into the virtual world with a complete transfer of all sensations. Those who live there permanently are called “netrunners”.

The technology is so dangerous that simply entering cyberspace by inserting a cable into the connector of the head will not work – the body works as a single processor and generates a lot of heat. If it is not immersed in an ice bath, the body will overheat and the “web runner” will die.


Cyberpunk 2077

The passage of Cyberpunk 2077 is familiar to sandboxes and games in the open world – we move around, complete the tasks of the main and side quests, and secondary missions, and also participate in random events, for example, members of the gang that he annoyed can attack the player.

You won’t be able to beat the game without killing anyone. The influence of the shooter and stealth action components is very high, but the combat component is different for each class. A loner can, like Rambo, crush opponents with an easel machine gun. Netrunner relies on pistols, wall running, and blades in his hands. Although the engineer holds a machine gun in his hands, he uses equipment and a robot assistant.

As a result, the fulfillment of missions and tactics of behavior during the battle depends on the selected perks, level of pumping, installed implants, and available weapons. Using the skills of an engineer or a hacker, you can break open doors, moving towards the goal in a detour. Otherwise, you will have to break through with a fight.

There will be boss battles in Cyberpunk 2077, according to trailers, sharpened by the amount of damage dealt and QTE hits at vulnerable points.

Moving between areas of Night City is possible with private transport and can be improved. Sometimes you will have to participate in races, pursue a goal or get away from the chase yourself.

Plot and characters

Cyberpunk 2077

But Cyberpunk 2077 is not just a set of the above mechanics and features, it is a full-fledged story-driven adventure with full player involvement. He will even have an apartment where he will relax, have sex, and also store things. There are four types of quests in the game and all are made by hand :

  • Story – from them you can learn the main story of Cyberpunk 2077, and you don’t have to go through everything to see the ending.
  • Spin-offs – created on the basis of ideas that were not included in the main story, will create an offshoot of the main plot or expand the details of the Cyberpunk universe.
  • Street stories are V’s main income and a way to gain a reputation. Similar to Geralt hunting monsters in The Witcher 3.
  • Secondary – short tasks for a couple of minutes, but with an interesting story.

Leveling is not so simple, it has two types of points – attributes and perks. The former is spent on five characteristics (Hull, Intelligence, Reflexes, Engineering, and Toughness), and attribute points are given for actions – you need to shoot, fight in close combat, turn the screws, or solve problems wisely.

Perks are divided into groups, such as “lockpicking”, “firearms”, and “melee”, and assembled like a deck of cards. To open a deeper perk, you need a sufficiently developed attribute. You can’t take the perk for hacking complex systems by throwing just one attribute point into intelligence. Perk points are given for new levels and successful completion of tasks.
