Cyberpunk 2077 Will Have Three Origin Stories For Protagonist “V”

These Lifepaths will offer different starting locations and backgrounds.

Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 will see players creating their own character V in Night City. From there, you embark on quests and make decisions (hopefully the right ones, since there’s no morality system) and build yourself up. However, along with customizing V’s look, players will have the option to tailor his backstory.

Speaking to lead quest designer Paweł Sasko after E3 2019, VG247 learned that there are three origin stories that players can choose from. These are referred to as “Lifepaths” by the developer. “The player in Cyberpunk 2077 can create a custom character that has one of three origin stories, that we call lifepaths: you can be Nomad, Corpo, or Street Kid,” said Sasko.

“Each of that Lifepaths has a different starting location and story background that are strongly connected with the origin story. Anything more I say can reveal too much from the story, so I will leave it like this.”

It seems that Nomad will have players starting out in the Badlands outside of Night City. Perhaps Corpo is about being attached to a megacorporation in question before striking out (or alternatively, carrying on its evil will)? We’ll have to wait and see, but a range of origin stories should lend even more replay value to this massive RPG.

Cyberpunk 2077 is out on April 16th 2020 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. It’s one of three major projects in development for the franchise.
