Cyberpunk 2077 will have several types of vehicles, everything from bikes to cars to planes to robots, designed solely for the dystopian setting. Knowing that only some of them will be hackable and pilotable is not what concerns players. What CD Projekt Red has been highly requested to integrate in such regard is to have some sort of customization for the said vehicles. The developer has been silent on the matter for a while but looks to be finally addressing those cries.
Posting on Reddit last night, user “shavod” recalled what he learned from the annual community meeting hosted by CD Projekt Red in Warsaw, Poland. Cyberpunk 2077 may yet receive customization options for vehicles, or at least the ones obtained by players. CD Projekt Red is asking the community to be a little more patient before an announcement can be made. It certainly appears that the developer is cooking up something to fulfil the oftenly requested feature.
In addition, as far as physics are concerned, CD Projekt Red is pursuing a system for Cyberpunk 2077 that will be more realistic than the vehicles found in the Grand Theft Auto franchise. However, players shouldn’t confuse this with something on a car simulation level. The developer isn’t going that far.
CD Projekt Red also confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will have a racing mini-game. It won’t be the traditional kind though. The developer has added a little way for players to “really test the speed limits” of their vehicles. The aforementioned customization options may get tied up with this mini-game as well.
Elsewhere, more clarification has been provided regarding the branching storylines of Cyberpunk 2077. In short, even the side quests will have side quests, and these will often connect with other quests, including the main storyline, depending on the choices made. CD Projekt Red wants to make it clear that Cyberpunk 2077 will have plenty of reasons for a second playthrough. Based on the design, players may even opt for a third playthrough since it will be difficult to find one playthrough that will be exactly the same.
Interestingly, Cyberpunk 2077 has a “really cool way” to have players start a new playthrough as soon as they are done with the first one. CD Projekt Red never explained how but based on the wording, players will be given a strong reason to get back into Night City straight away.
Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 16, 2020. There are no current plans to release the game on next-generation consoles as soon as they arrive in the holiday season of 2020. The developer will eventually look into PlayStation 5 and Project Scarlett but not right away.
