CDPR Business Development Director, Rafal
Jaki confirmed that V can still be 100% Female or Male, following recent developments that
you now choose a body type. CDPR are providing players with more options to simply mix and
match Mike Pondsmith reiterated that Fem V is highly
reminiscent of his daughter. On why RTG decided to go with the Time of
the Red, while there were fires in California, Mike would often find himself going out in
the mornings, and the skies would literally be blood red. This fascinated Mike and he
found himself asking what would happen if something similar occurred but on a much larger
scale, for instance during the fourth corporate war, where even the Highriders bombarded Earth
with Orbital Strikes as a declaration of their independence. Mike felt that blood red skies
would be highly symbolic. CDPR are currently advertising for a Game
Presenter position. If you feel this is an opportunity you would be interested in, try
your luck. Qualifications include gameplay proficiency, passion for FPP shooters, and
stress resistance, or in cyberpunk parlance, a high cool stat.
Patrick Mills confirmed that V will encounter many full borg characters in the game, many
of whom will look human in reference to the Cyberspsycho lady from the original teaser
trailer, which appears to have undergone full conversion. Patrick has previously hinted
she is a cool character. Looking towards the future, CDPR aim to migrate
towards a dual-franchise model, Cyberpunk 2077 and the Witcher. This might imply that
after Cyberpunk 2077 is released in April 2020, one might expect CDPR to divert their
main attention to a game from the Witcher Universe. Financially CDPR continues to do
exceptionally well, with revenues climbing significantly for 2019, and this does not
include pre-order sales from Cyberpunk 2077, which will be deferred from the results until
the game is released. The winner of the Pax West Cosplay Competition
was the talented Lady Lunacy, with a fine rendition of Fem V. If all the finalists end
up being Fem V cosplayers, CDPR need to bring me in as a judge.
CDPR finally released the Gameplay presentation followed by a Q&A which contained a myriad
of interesting points. Amongst them were a few new details.
It was confirmed you can call your vehicle Roach.
Lifepaths will determine where V starts in Night City, she will start the game knowing
different people as well. A perk was revealed, Cold Blood, which allows
V to survive situations when they have received a lot of damage to boost your damage output.
Athletics allows V to move objects such as dead bodies. Normally this act would slow
V down, but with special perks you can run with the dead body.
A shotgun was mentioned which apparently has eight barrels that fire all at once.
V can throw knives. V will also be able to customize weapons,
in terms of visuals such as paint jobs. Thank you for Chippin’In
