Cyberpunk 2077: Does the game support 4K resolution?
Yes. 4K gaming is possible on PC, PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, PS5, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X.
For PC, however, you will need to have at least the GeForce GTX 1080Ti and Intel i7-8700K to be able to enjoy smooth gameplay in 4K.
Cyberpunk 2077: What is the game's setting?
The game takes place in a fictional city called Night City. It is a metropolis located between Los Angeles and San Francisco, California.
The city is divided into 6 districts: City Center, Watson, Westbrook, Heywood, Pacifica and Santo Domingo. All areas are available for exploration from the very beginning of the game. Additionally, it is possible to traverse the wilderness - the Badlands surrounding the metropolis.
Cyberpunk 2077 Is Afterlife The Card Game in the game?
Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife: The Card Game is a card game that will hit the market in 2020. It is not a part of Cyberpunk 2077, but will only carry it out.
Cyberpunk 2077: Does Gwent appear in the game?
No, neither Gwent nor any similar card game appears in the game.
Cyberpunk 2077: Does the game allow you to kill children?
No. In Cyberpunk 2077, you will occasionally encounter children, but the game won't let you injure or kill them. Additionally, children become invisible when Photo Mode is activated. This is one of few game elements censored by the authors.
Cyberpunk 2077: Is it possible to fail a quest?
Yes. Some jobs can possibly end in failure. A failed quest will affect future tasks and decisions made by characters in the further parts of the game.
Cyberpunk 2077: Can you own multiple vehicles at a time?
Yes, you can buy new vehicles during the game and add them to your collection. The vehicles you own are stored in a garage. At any time during the game, you can summon the desired type of vehicle to you (as the cars have a self-driving mode).
Summoning vehicles is described in detail on a separate page How to summon a vehicle?. Additionally, we recommend checking out the Vehicles and Garage page.
Cyberpunk 2077: Can important NPCs die?
Most of the important NPCs in Cyberpunk 2077 cannot die even if you wish them dead and attempt to attack them. Having conversations with them and choosing aggressive/hostile dialogue options can, at best, lead to deteriorating your relationship with them.
Some important story characters will die during the course of the game, but these deaths occur in predetermined locations and are a part of the game's storyline.
Cyberpunk 2077: Is one playthrough enough to experience the whole game?
No. In Cyberpunk 2077, your choices and skills may determine the outcome of events. If you do not perform a task or you choose a different path (some solutions may be mutually exclusive), you may not be able to reach a particular node.
If you want to know all the secrets of this game, you will be forced to have multiple playthroughs (or carefully analyze our guide).
Cyberpunk 2077: Is it possible to complete the game without NPC deaths?
Yes, it's not easy, but it can be done. You can avoid murdering people primarily by sneaking around and taking alternative paths and quest completion methods.
In Cyberpunk 2077, you will also have the option to stun enemies instead of killing them. This also includes boss encounters, which you will be able to resolve peacefully. For more details go to the page Completing the game without killing - is it possible?
Cyberpunk 2077: Are there any microtransactions?
The developers guarantee that the game won't have any microtransactions in the single-player mode – those that give our character bonuses and those changing our appearance.
Two major DLCs will be optionally available for purchase sometime after the game's release - specific dates are not yet known. They will probably be extensive story expansions similar to those for The Witcher 3.
There is a possibility that microtransactions will appear in the multiplayer mode. The basics of this mode are in development and it won't be available at the release of the game. Multiplayer will debut later. Information about possible microtransactions should be revealed at a later date.
Cyberpunk 2077: Will it have DLC?
In addition to several large paid expansions, Cyberpunk 2077 will also receive small DLCs and some of them will be free. The smaller DLCs can add, e.g. new skins for characters, unique items, or additional quests. The developers emphasize that this is how they want to thank the players who decided to buy their game.
Cyberpunk 2077: Is there a battle royale mode?
The game won't feature the currently popular battle royale mode. This information was officially confirmed by Cyberpunk's developers.
Cyberpunk 2077: Will there be a morality system?
In Cyberpunk 2077 we will shape our character by performing a number of activities and making various choices. In the game, however, there is no direct system of morality that informs us whether our choice is right or wrong. We learn our consequences over time, performing the next activities and watching our impact on the world.
There is a Street Cred system which grants you reputation points for helping the citizens of Night City. However, earning reputation points isn't connected to the moral choices you make.
Cyberpunk 2077: How many endings are in the game?
There are several different endings available in Cyberpunk 2077. These are influenced by the choices your character makes during the game.
In our guide you will find a detailed description of each ending and their requirements.
Cyberpunk 2077: Is it possible to continue playing the game after finishing the main story?
Yes, you can continue playing after completing the main storyline.
Cyberpunk 2077: Does the game have random quests?
No, random quests do not appear in the game. All quests have been designed from the ground up and will contain an interesting storyline to keep you immersed in these side activities.
Cyberpunk 2077: Will the game support mods?
Cyberpunk 2077 won't have official mod support on release. The developers claim, however, that they will deal with this issue after the game's release. Currently, they want to focus entirely on developing the game.
Cyberpunk 2077: Does the game have both main and side quests?
Yes, the game is divided into main jobs, side jobs, gigs and other activities. One of the game's characteristic elements is that the main quests form the shape of a straight line, which later splits off into multiple paths that continue diverging into further branches. It's important to note that some of these branches may connect and overlap thus leading to many different conclusions.
To sum up - the course of certain quests or entire storyline aspects may change slightly with each playthrough and guarantee a unique game experience. This will depend not only on the individual major choices but on numerous factors, their occurrence and how do they influence each other.
Cyberpunk 2077: Is it an FPS or an RPG?
Cyberpunk 2077 is an action-RPG game with an open world. The game includes character development, a wide range of abilities, perks that improve skills in a particular area, and a system of choices.
Cyberpunk 2077: Do you get to choose your character's class?
No, you don't choose a class for the character you create. You can create your own character and seamlessly switch between many different play styles.
Factors such as investing points in different attributes, upgrading skills, unlocking perks or using different types of equipment will affect how your character will turn out in Cyberpunk 2077. We have discussed this topic in more detail on the page Character Development - How does it work?
Cyberpunk 2077: Is swimming in the game?
Yes. Your character is agile and can explore the world in various ways. V can not only run and drive a vehicle but also swim! As you explore the game world, you will take part in a multitude of activities related to water.
Cyberpunk 2077: Are there any dungeons in the game?
Yes, although they can't quite be called dungeons. During the course of Cyberpunk 2077, you will have the chance to delve into underground structures. However, the game does not have any random dungeons focused on acquiring loot.
Cyberpunk 2077: Are there brothels in the game?
Yes, in Cyberpunk 2077 you will get to enjoy the services of prostitutes (male and female) found in brothels. In addition, it is possible to initiate full-fledged romances with selected NPCs.
Cyberpunk 2077: Will you be able to leave the city area?
Yes, but only after completing the game's prologue. After you complete the initial quests, the whole world will open up to you. Among other things, you will be able to leave the city at will to explore the neighboring wilderness.
Additionally, if you choose the Nomad lifepath, you will start the game in the Badlands, although your first quest will be to reach Night City. Thus, initially the game won't let you spend much time in the wilderness.
Cyberpunk 2077: What happens when you reach the edge of the world map?
Cyberpunk 2077 will, unfortunately, have a mechanism similar to that from The Witcher 3 where the hero gets moved back after they reach the edges of the world map. The game will also display information that this is the end of the world map.
Cyberpunk 2077: Will the game let you switch your gender?
In Cyberpunk 2077, you can create any character you could ever want. This also applies to creating a new character at the start of the campaign. In Cyberpunk 2077, you don't choose whether you want to play as a male or a female. Instead, you define a body type based on your own preferences. The game also allows you to choose whether the created character should speak with a male or a female voice.
Of course, it is still possible to create a "classic" man or woman, but this is just one of the multitude of options available to you.
Cyberpunk 2077: Do all characters communicate in one language?
No, even if you choose a specific language version of the game (e.g. English), not all characters will speak this language. This can lead to problems with understanding what some NPCs want to tell us or what they want from us.
Your character will start the game with a basic translator version. It will help you understand some of the common languages in Night City (e.g. Spanish and Japanese) - the subtitle language for supported languages can be swapped in real time. The game will allow you to install translator improvements to learn more languages and rarer dialects (e.g. Creole).
Cyberpunk 2077: Are there any romances?
Yes. You will be able to romance a few of the characters in Cyberpunk 2077. However, your sexual orientation will have an impact on this aspect. Unlike heterosexual Geralt, your character will depend on you and your choices.
Keep in mind, however, that most NPCs also have a sexual orientation assigned to them, so you may not stand a chance with some characters. We described all possible relationships in the Romance chapter.
Cyberpunk 2077: Where is Keanu?
Johnny Silverhand, played by Keanu Reeves, has a key role in the plot of Cyberpunk 2077. This character appears in the game as a "digital ghost" and V's first "encounter" with Johnny occurs at the end of Act 1 of the campaign. For more information, go to the Johnny Silverhand section in the Companions chapter.
Cyberpunk 2077: Does the game support ray tracing?
Yes, Cyberpunk 2077 supports ray tracing. This means that Cyberpunk 2077 will officially support this technology. However, to run this option you will need reliable hardware to be able to enjoy smooth gameplay.
Cyberpunk 2077: Can a pet follow you in-game?
The only pet that can accompany your character is the spider-like bot Flathead. If you create a character specializing in the Techie class, you can improve the bot and add new features. The game allows you to give commands to the Flathead. The robot can, e.g. attack enemies, control devices, disassemble items and collect crafting parts.
In Cyberpunk 2077, we won't find the equivalent of Roach from The Witcher 2077 – a living animal companion that could be mounted and used as a mode of transportation.
Cyberpunk 2077: Do living animals appear in the game?
Yes, although there won't be many species. When traveling around the world of Cyberpunk 2077, you will meet mainly the most popular domesticated animal species, such as dogs and cats. These include cats that can be petted and one of them will even be adoptable. You can learn how to do this from a separate page of our guide: how to adopt a cat?.
Cyberpunk 2077: Can you turn off the HUD?
Yes, the game allows you to disable the entire HUD or its individual elements. The HUD in Cyberpunk 2077 has been designed in a way to give the appearance of an "overlay". The intention was to give the impression that the various HUD elements are being displayed on the retina of your cyber-eye. However, if you don't want to see the HUD, you can disable it.
Options for disabling the various HUD elements can be found in the Interface tab. You can disable the mini-map, the health, stamina and oxygen bars, the energy bars above the bosses' heads, tooltips, action icons, the viewfinder and the information display on the selected journal entry.
Cyberpunk 2077: Does the game have a day-night cycle?
Yes. The game has a full day and night cycle. It can affect the course of a mission. For example, a given area can be patrolled by fewer guards at night.
Cyberpunk 2077 allows you to skip time at will. This can be useful if, for example, you want to play a particular mission at night or sneak somewhere after dark.
The game also has dynamic weather system. It should be noted, however, that acid rain is only cosmetic and it doesn't affect the gameplay in any way, for example, you don't have to wear a suit protecting from acid rain.
Cyberpunk 2077: Multiplayer - does the game support online gameplay?
The multiplayer mode was announced, although the authors didn't share any details about it. CD Projekt RED Studio wants to focus primarily on developing the single-player content. Multiplayer won't be available at the game's launch. During its debut, Cyberpunk 2077 will be 100% focused on single-player.
More information about this mode can be found on the Multiplayer page in our guide.
Cyberpunk 2077: Will there be a Switch version?
There is no such information currently. For now, the game has been released on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X.
Cyberpunk 2077: VR version - will there be support for virtual reality headsets?
Probably not. The creators of Cyberpunk 2077 are aware of the development of virtual reality goggles technology (PSVR, Oculus, Vive and others), but they have no plans on releasing a VR version.
Cyberpunk 2077: Can you decorate your character's apartment?
No, the main character lives in one of the apartment blocks in Night City. The game doesn't have the option to change the place where you live.
There is also no option to personally decorate the apartment or to change the furniture. It should be noted, however, that the appearance of the apartment will depend on the lifepath chosen at character creation. It will also change automatically during the course of the game.
Cyberpunk 2077: How big is the game world?
The world map in Cyberpunk 2077 is slightly smaller than the one in The Witcher 3. However, it should be noted that The Witcher had many open uninhabited spaces, while Cyberpunk 2077 takes place mostly in a densely populated city. Cyberpunk 2077 also allows you to enter multi-level buildings. Players don't need to be afraid that the game won't have interesting places to visit.
For more information, check out the World Map section in our atlas.
Cyberpunk 2077: Are radio stations available in the game?
Yes, you can listen to a few radio stations while traveling around the game's world. As in the GTA series, each station specializes in playing a different genre of music, e.g. rock, pop, techno, metal, or electronic music.
Unlike Grand Theft Auto, Cyberpunk 2077 won't have any licensed tracks. The music was composed entirely for the game. Also, some of the songs were composed by real bands.
Cyberpunk 2077: Will the game appear on Xbox Game Pass?
Cyberpunk 2077 will definitely not be available on Xbox Game Pass on the world premiere. Also, the developers have no plans at the moment to add Cyberpunk 2077 to the Xbox Game Pass library at a later date.
