CD Projekt Red just hosted a second episode of Night City Wire, with three new featurettes focused on Cyberpunk 2077. During the stream, we got a good look at the life paths, weaponry and music available in the highly anticipated videogame. Let’s break it down!

First up was lifepath choices. When you kick off your journey in Cyberpunk 2077, you get to create your own unique character using a variety of options. You can even choose their ‘lifepaths’, which decide their backstories. Your character can be a Street Kid, Nomad or Corpo - with each choice impacting how characters behave around you, as well as how the game begins.

The second featurette focuses on the creative weaponry you’ll be able to get your hands on in Cyberpunk 2077. From powerful shotguns and thermal katanas to sniper rifles and Mantis Blades, you have a lot of choices here. Of course, you don’t always have to engage in combat… but if and when you do, it might help to have a good blaster at your side.

Hey, you guys know that Keanu Reeves is in this game, right? He plays Johnny Silverhand, the lead singer of in-game rock band SAMURAI. A Swedish hardcore punk band named Refused has brought the fictional band to life, and the last featurette shines a spotlight on them.

Cyberpunk 2077 will launch on November 19, 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Google Stadia. Plenty more footage from the game was revealed in the first Night City Wire episode, and you can check our coverage here. We also interviewed Cyberpunk 2077’s Story Director, Marcin Blacha.
