'Cyberpunk 2077' Can Be Completed In A Number Of Unique Ways
Cyberpunk 2077 sounds like a good old-fashioned RPG in so many respects. From the very beginning, players will be able to fully create their own character, choose their origin story, and explore Night City at their own pace in their own way. It's only fitting, then, that players be able to end the game on their terms - and apparently it's possible to do exactly that.
According to a new interview from Polish site Spider's Web, it's entirely possible to roll credits on Cyberpunk 2077 without finishing the main quest. Lead quest designer Paweł Sasko confirmed that this interesting little feature was inspired directly by criticisms of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Specifically, that the main quest-line in the fantasy RPG was too long.
"We built the Cyberpunk (2077) structure based on the conclusions we drew from The Witcher 3," Sasko explained. "The Witcher had the main stem of history and side threads departing from it, and this was our main structure, which we call the ear."
"So in Cyberpunk's structure we have this wheat spike, which serves as its centre, the main storyline with different subplots surrounding it, which can be triggered in various ways," Sasko continued.

"Those subplots allow us to do something that we have never done before - they change the main plot of the game and they are doing that in such a way that you may not even finish the main plot, but still finish the game and get a completely different epilogue than the player with a different lifepath who made different choices, met different characters and formed relationships with them."
Sasko also explained that your adventure will be different based on the life path you chose at the start of the game. In other words, where your character stands in relation to Night City and its hierarchy will impact when and how you meet certain characters in the world.
It also sounds like certain quests and opportunities will be exclusive to certain life paths, so you're more than likely going to have play through the game a few times to see everything it has to offer. Once again, Cyberpunk 2077 sounds like a seriously intense RPG with a lot of moving parts. No wonder the game has been delayed so many times now.
Still, I can't wait to see if it'll live up to hype when it finally launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 19th.
