Everything We Know About Cyberpunk 2077's Story So Far

What exactly is the plot of Cyberpunk 2077? Thanks to new info and hands-on time with the game, we have a clearer picture of the opening hours, as well as a pretty good theory on where it will go.

Over the past few years, we’ve learned a lot about Cyberpunk 2077’s world, its look, and some of its characters. But what exactly is the plot of the game? Well thanks to some hands-on time with the first few hours and a lot of info from developer CD Projekt Red, we now have a clear picture of what V’s journey is in Night City, at least for the prologue.

This video breaks down all three of the game's unique intros, which are known as Life Paths. There’s Street Kid, Nomad, and Corporate, with all of them offering a different backstory for main character V. We then dive right into the main plot, which does require us to put together a few pieces and get speculative. This means there are potential major spoilers, so maybe turn the video off after 3:40 if you rather experience it for yourself.

Cyberpunk 2077 releases this fall on November 19th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One with free updates for PS5 and Xbox Series X. If you're interested in more Cyberpunk videos, we have a gameplay breakdown, hands-on impressions, and a developer interview. Jake Dekker and Tamoor Hussain will also be doing a Q&A video so leave your questions for them in the comments below.
