CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is still a few months from release, which means new details are coming all the time. The latest news on the game reveals something which is definitely interesting for fans of massive RPGs, as it’s been announced that Cyberpunk 2077 can be completed in a number of different ways.
Lead quest designer Paweł Sasko spoke about the news with Polish publication Spider’s Web, where it was revealed that you don’t actually need to complete the main story quest in order to complete the title. In fact, choosing not to do so could even give you “a completely different epilogue than the player with a different lifepath who made different choices, met different characters and formed relationships with them.”
Explaining that the design choice stemmed from wanting to expand on how stories and conclusions worked in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Sasko said: “In Cyberpunk’s structure we have this wheat spike, which serves as its centre, the main storyline with different subplots surrounding it, which can be triggered in various ways,
“Those subplots allow us to do something that we have never done before – they change the main plot of the game and they are doing that in such a way that you may not even finish the main plot, but still finish the game and get a completely different epilogue than the player with a different lifepath who made different choices, met different characters and formed relationships with them.”
We already knew Cyberpunk 2077 was going to be a huge game with many different story elements to pursue, but this sounds like it really could redefine RPGs as we currently know them.
The replayability here sounds pretty insane, and honestly, November can’t come soon enough!
Cyberpunk 2077 will release in November on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. If you pick up the game on a current-gen console, you’ll receive a free upgrade to next-gen, along with a free update patch post-release.
