Welcome to the Cyberpunk 2077 Wiki, a series of pages detailing everything we currently know about the upcoming adaption of Mike Pondsmith's tabletop RPG, Cyberpunk 2020, by CD Projekt. The website is currently a work in progress, but updates will be coming regularly.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person RPG in which players take on the role of V, a mercenary who can be formed into a number of possible appearances, backstories, and comes with a wide variety of combat techniques and weapons to be learnt and improved upon.
The game is set in Night City, a bustling metropolis in the Free State of California; it is divided into 6 districts, each of which has its own ruling gang or class, as well as a designated "use" for that area. Players take on the role of V, a mercenary who has to work to survive in Night City.
Depending on which character background you choose for V, the game itself plays differently, but the end of the prologue appears to be the same, regardless of your background choice: liase with Jackie Welles and get into trouble with the Arasaka Corporation.
Backgrounds for V
Depending on the choice of the player, V enters the world with one of three potential backgrounds, which in turn influence the way you play and experience the game.
Areas of Night City
- A predominantly Asian area that is now filled with immigrants.
- City Center
- Mostly filled with wealthy corporations and their headquarters.
- Living quarters for the extremely wealthy and is therefore heavily guarded.
- A suburban housing district for those who are not wealthy enough for Westbrook, but still live with a strong undertone of gang violence and activity.
- A district that is so overrun by poverty and gangs that it borders on being abandoned.
- Santo Domingo
- The most industrial part of the city, featuring countless factories and other buildings.
Cyberpunk 2077 plays as a role-playing game in which players can influence their experience based on the choices they make in game, such as the class or background they choose for V.
There are currently three classes for V in the game, all of which are listed below.
Combat takes the form of a first-person shooter, combined with huge amounts of additional weaponry beyond simply guns; depending on their class choice, players are able to fight up close as a Solo, hack both enemies and objects alike as a Netrunner, or build turrets and bots to help you fight as a Techie.
Note that you are not locked into a single class when playing Cyberpunk 2077; there is a fluid class system in place, which allows you to take traits and abilities from varying classes, depending on what you need.
Players have access to a long list of vehicles, all of which can be driven around Night City; driving also allows players to use the third-person perspective, something that cannot be done during combat.
For any vehicles that can fly, players are able to use them, but not pilot them - they are automated and travel between set destinations.
There are currently 4 trailers available for Cyberpunk 2077, with the first teaser being released in January, 2013 and acting as the first announcement for the game.
The second trailer came in June, 2018, at E3 and featured the first proper glimpse at both the gameplay and setting of the game.
The third trailer released once again at E3 the following year, in 2019, and received an extremely positive reaction. It featured multiple notable characters, including Jackie Welles, Dexter DeShawn, and most importantly, Johnny Silverhand, played by Keanu Reeves. Viewers saw a glimpse of what combat as a Solo might look like, with the cinematic V showing off melee combat moves, as well as the power of a Netrunner, who attempts to stop V.
The final trailer released in June, 2020, under the title "The Gig". It featured far more gameplay footage than the 2019 trailer, showing the relationship between V, Jackie, and multiple other characters.
