What Is Cyberpunk 2077?
Cyberpunk is a sub-genre of sci-fi where high tech meets low life. This means it is a place where normal people, low life scumbags, crooks, and criminals have access to high-end technology. With this sci-fi genre, you can expect high tech weapons followed by some amazing cybernetic modifications.
In this pen and paper RPG, you make decisions for your character, fight enemies, level up, and buy modifications for your character. The game is set in noir film style dark and dangerous streets of the Night City. Night City is located between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The city has a population of over 5 million. However, the socio-economic collapse has crippled the city to a great extent. As a result, the government had to rely on several mega-corporations to survive. So far, there are 20 known mega-corporations, which are an important part of every Cyberpunk game.

Certain Things To Know About Cyberpunk 2077.
Before going ahead with the game, here are a few things you need to know before buying/playing the game.
- It’s not for KIDS!!! Though the game isn’t officially rated yet, everything we’ve seen so far suggests that the game will have a mature rating. It has your standard video game violence, swearing. However, the new additions to the game are heavy drug use and extreme nudity.
- Selectable Backstory: The character creation in Cyberpunk 2077 is the kind you’d expect from a full-fledged RPG. Similar to Mass Effect, Cyberpunk 2077 will allow you to choose your upbringing. Youll be able to select one of three selectable life paths at the beginning: Corporate, Nomad, and Street Kid.
- No Morality System: Instead of the traditional ” good karma/bad karma’ morality system, CD Projekt is going ahead with a ‘No Morality System’. This means that you’ll have a different reputation with every group you encounter called Street Cred in the game. As a result, players will have to rely on their sense of judgment to decide what’s right or wrong.
- The Setting: In 2077, Night City is voted the worst place to live in America and is controlled by evil companies. There are six districts throughout the city where you can travel by car. The desert surrounding the city is also accessible to the users.
