Hard Wired For Love With Cyberpunk 2077
Everybody loves options. Especially in Gaming – not only does it add to escapism, but it’s also the opportunity to choose an alternate life with a romantic interest. Games such as; Assassins Creed Odyssey, has demonstrated a choice for you to pick who you want to be with (even if it’s just a certain portion of the time).
And now Cyberpunk 2077 by CD Projekt Red is looking to give you similar options.
Cyberpunk 2077 allows you to explore your options
Similar to The Witcher 3 – CD Projekt Red have included romantic options that will remind you of the last open – world RPG but with some added choices from your dystopian love life. For example; players can pursue more (should we say) short – term relationships with a number of other women throughout the Game.
However, Geralt’s (the main protagonist) main romantic interest is mostly towards one or two main characters throughout the game.
What has the Lead Quest Designer Pawel Sasko got to say?
On Twitter, you may have noticed that Pawel Sasko has spoken out with a Reddit User; Magired1234, where he demonstrated how Cyberpunk 2077 will provide more options;
“So in terms of romances – you can think that it’s going to be similar to how Witcher 3 was – there were whole plotlines regarding characters, and if those NPC’s were treated well and interested in Geralt, something would happen, so here it’s going to be similar.”
Is Geralt represented the same in the Witcher novels?
Geralt is already a pre-defined character from the Witcher novels, CD Projekt Red have perhaps focused on the more sexual liberating side than he previously displayed in the books.
But you don’t have to just focus on Geralt’s character as you will be able to create your own character that will be supported with a broader pool of potential romantic interests;
“Here you can define what type of interactions your character prefers and have a relationship with that NPC / NCPs.”
Romance is NOT limited to gender
This is what we quite like about Cyberpunk 2077. As Player’s don’t have to feel limited to those heterosexual relationships that were previously present in The Witcher 3. CD Projekt has clarified even further by saying;
“Romancing is something heavily present in Cyberpunk, and players will be able to form meaningful connections with other characters as well as go for one night stands. Since we’re not bound by a predefined character like in The Witcher anymore, the game will feature romance options beyond heterosexual”
What we think
We like that players are getting more choice in their gameplay as it provides relief from all the high stakes action and drama. Again, just adding another aspect of reality to the game, so that it adds a more realistic element.
