Most games that are played on tabletops run a fairly simple group of classes, from warrior to barbarian to paladin to cleric to thief. The Cyberpunk 2077 classes, however, are going to be a little bit different. Based off the tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020, classes in the game include journalist, executive, rock star, and more.
Considering Cyberpunk takes place on a futuristic Earth, you can only expect that there are going to be other things you can do besides run around with a sword; plus, it’s the future. While you can run around with a gun and fight crazy robots or gangs in the streets of the game’s main city, you can also do stuff behind the scenes.
CD Projekt RED and Cyberpunk creator Mike Pondsmith spent at least a week going over the game’s various classes and how they could be implemented into the game. Pondsmith himself has said that fans may be surprised at how all of those classes are going to be worked in, and that CD Projekt RED has been able to tweak them in a rather interesting way.
Since it’s not based on a book like CD Projekt RED’s Witcher games were, we’ll likely be playing a more conventional RPG game where we make a character, pick a class, and work our way through the story from there. Whatever will happen in the plot, however, remains to be seen, as CD Projekt RED has so far been mum on details.
The various Cyberpunk 2077 classes, in addition to things like journalist, executive, and rock star, also include things like cop, fixer, techie, netrunner, and nomad, so depending on what class you pick you could have any number of different experiences throughout the game.
There’s almost no telling when Cyberpunk 2077 will release, but hopefully we’ll get some more information about it soon.
