Cyberpunk 2077 will have several classes. Before getting into the distant future, gamers will need to create their own individual character. To do this, in the main menu, you will need to decide on its background (the reason, the event in connection with which the hero decided to go to Night City). The traversed life path will give the Persian certain bonuses, strengths and weaknesses, and increase replay value.
There are several options to choose from:
- Nomad. B may turn out to be a nomad unknown to anyone in Night City, tied to his clan. His past life was “on wheels”, and took place in constant movement among cities. Once in the world of brutal gangs, the hero only has to create a reputation for himself;
- Child of the streets. The backstory option is ideal for those who want to solve all issues by force, love weapons and do not mind shooting all day. The hero will not be trusted by the corporation. However, gang members will initially begin to show more respect than a nomad;
- A corporation employee. We recommend that you pay special attention to the background for those who prefer to settle conflicts peacefully. V will be able to achieve what he wants, making deals, and reasonably insisting on his own in conversations with other heroes. In conversations, there will be replicas that are inaccessible to a child of the streets and a nomad. Relationships with gangs will be difficult, with corporations and merchants relatively easy.
Available playable classes (characters can be combined) – Netrunners, Engineers and Loners. By focusing on pumping one thing, for example, on programming or cracking software, you can create a powerful character who will become limited in another area. For example, in the open combat system (in battles it will be possible to win with cunning, acting undercover).
The name of the main character (will be with full voice acting) – V. This is a rising cyberpunk, a Persian who can have an individual character, your last name / first name and skills.
When creating a character, it should be remembered that the attitude of gangs and their members to V will largely depend on the gender of the hero – female or male. For example, in female form, B, who has a lightning-fast reaction, will be able to activate slow motion mode. They will beat her weaker than the Persian man. Moreover, they can even succumb to it.
Screenshots of character creation and customization
The following appearance settings are available in the character editor at the beginning of the game:
– 6 skin tones;
– 35 hairstyles;
– 17 types of eyes, mouths, cheekbones and ears;
– 8 types of eye makeup;
– 5 types of lips and teeth;
– 8 types of eyebrows;
– 8 cybernetic implants;
– 11 types of face / body scars, tattoos and piercings.
Voice acting B:
- Male – Gavin Drea;
- The female sex is Cherami Lee.
As we said above, the expanded skill system has led to the absence of a standard “division” into classes. You can experiment and combine the skills and abilities of the key character.
One of the main characters in both this game and the entire Cyberpunk line. In Cyberpunk 2077, he will be played by Keanu Reeves. The actor not only gave Johnny his appearance, but also voiced the hero in every story video.
Johnny Silverhand is a guitarist, singer and rocker with a silver chrome cyber arm who has lost almost all of his family and friends. Speaks out against corporations. The character’s girlfriend in the game was the deceased Alt Cunningham (in Cyberpunk 2077, only a digital ghost will remain of her).
Mike Pondsmith personally worked on the development of the hero. Morgan is another psychopath in the game, who also has a chrome cyber hand, but this time in black. The character is a loner with extensive experience of participating in dangerous military conflicts.
This muscle-bound, Latin American bully and assassin hero will act as an assistant for V. He will participate in gunfights and hand-to-hand combat. Its strength is enough, for example, to turn the car over.
In the English version of the game, Jason Hightower will be the voice of the hero.
The digital “spirit” that has escaped from the clutches of the corporation and now wanders across the vastness of the global network. The character is a talented programmer who created an electronic version of the netrunner’s brain (later this version was turned into a deadly weapon).
A cool netrunner who has earned trust and respect in his field through persistence and consistency. If Bug cannot cope with the task that you entrust her, then no one can solve it.
Duchamp is a fixer with rich experience and excellent intuition, who wields illegal contracts. At your direction, he will trade people, kidnap and kill them, carry out burglaries. You will have to pay for his services.
The character can also be used as a mediator between your hero and the best assassins-mercenaries of Night City. Dex’s contact base is the largest in the city. The voice of the hero is Michael Leon Wool.
The population of Knight City is in need of medics. But this doctor is a real ripper. Victor has medical and engineering degrees. Therefore, equally deftly handling both a wrench and a scalpel, he is able to:
- To supply a new prosthesis B obtained from the black market or restore a damaged implant;
- Get a bullet from the hero’s body, sew up the stomach with intestines falling out from there.
In short, Doctor Victor can patch up a Persian in any situation.
The boss of the western gang, in his intelligence and professionalism, is far superior to other street gangsters. This character should not be judged by looks alone. Pay attention to his mind.
The corporations are the privileged members of the future. They sit in comfortable chairs in their luxurious suites on the top floors of skyscrapers located in the corporate districts.
Meredith is a successful corporate woman who goes to her goal, no matter what. She looks with contempt at those who are below her on the social ladder.
Knight City is owned by corporations. However, the bandits have their own “piece” of power here. The distrustful and cold-blooded Royce is the head of the major street gang Maelstorm. He steals technology, makes armed attacks on corporate caravans. Many consider him a nutcase, whether it is or not is up to you. The main thing is not to forget that this psycho is extremely dangerous.
Brandance editor – a mechanic with which you can view the memories of another person and experience the same sensations as him. You can have an affair with a girl.
