Game developers CD PROJEKT RED, best known for their Witcher game franchise, has unveiled three video featurettes centered around the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. The videos focus on the life paths, weaponry, and music of the game, and were all featured on the second episode of Night City Wire.
The Lifepaths featurette takes an in-depth look at the different backstories players will be able to choose for the main character of Cyberpunk 2077 simply known as “V”. Each path provides a distinct introduction to Night City and influences V’s experiences throughout the game.
