Cyberpunk 2077 Romances Will Be “Very Similar” To The Witcher 3
CD Projekt Red hasn’t talked about romances or the romance systems in the game, but recently lead quest designer Pawel Sasko confirmed to a fan that Cyberpunk 2077 is modeled after The Witcher 3 in this regard.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Cyberpunk 2077 has romances, and they will be “very similar” to how they worked in The Witcher 3, according to CD Projekt Red. As you will know, the romance options weren’t endless for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but that’s because Geralt was a pre-defined character. What was there though was deep, robust, and an important part of the game. With Cyberpunk 2077, players are creating their own characters, which hopefully means more romantic freedom and options, though not at the sacrifice of quality and development.
News on what we can expect from upcoming dystopian RPG Cyberpunk 2077 continues to surface. We already know that the game will feature romance options, from flirting to full-frontal nudity and one-night flings. We also know that players will have some big choices to make throughout the game. Now it’s becoming clearer how these two features will combine. The game will feature long-term relationship options with their own entire plotlines, Witcher 3-style and there will be more than just heterosexual opportunities on offer.
User Magired1234 has posted a screenshot on Reddit of what he says is a DM Twitter conversation with Cyberpunk 2077 lead quest designer Paweł Sasko (which seems to be authentic based on his Twitter profile). In it, Sasko drops some extra nuggets of knowledge on how romance will work in the game.
Sasko says “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 character[s] and if […] NPCs were treated well and interested in Geralt, something was happening”. He added “so here it’s going to be very similar”, adorning his message with a winking smiley face.
The game will also feature some LGBTQ+ relationship options, confirmed in Sasko’s comments: “and of course players will have way more options th[a]n only heterosexual, as it was in the Witcher 3 (as Geralt was a defined character that was only interested in females). Here you can define what type of interactions your character prefers and have a relationship with that NPC/NPCs”.
Prostitution was in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and presumably it will be here as well. Meanwhile, unlike The Witcher 3, you aren’t limited to heterosexual romance options.
Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification. You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character’s cyberware, skillset and playstyle, and explore a vast city where the choices you make shape the story and the world around you.
Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date is Confirmed & will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on April 16th 2020.
