Take a look at the Night City Live episode 3 down below.
Cyberpunk 2077’s Quest Director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz recently spoke to The Gamer and reveal how the player the player’s interaction with some gangs will determine how the protagonist is seen by other gangs.
“You will sometimes get jobs that were given to a fixer by some gang members. So you kind of do dabble in this dynamic between them, but you won’t really push sides – it’s more doing gigs that will change some local bands of power, rather than shifting the huge bands of power in the entire city,” explains Tomaszkiewicz.
“Most of our content is custom-made, it’s hand-tailored, so it really depends on a specific quest and situation,” says Tomaszkiewicz. “Keep in mind that, much like The Witcher 3, your decisions have short-term and long-term consequences, so choose your friends wisely”.
Each gang has its own style, way of doing business, and ideologies, Tomaszkiewicz suggests that the gang’s divisions are mainly based on cultural differences”We’re trying to get as many opinions from different sources, and to incorporate this into our designs and the way we worked on the gangs,” the developer states.
Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour, and body modification. You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character’s cyberwar, skillset, and playstyle, and explore a vast city where the choices you make shape the story and the world around you.
