Night City is packed with characters to meet, and building these relationships plays a huge role in Cyberpunk 2077. Phil Hornshaw recently played 16 hours of Cyberpunk and walks us through how forging relationships works.
He talks about building a relationship with a braindance editor called Judy, and how she and other characters will text V just to check in, or to offer side quests (we're not sure if they'll ask you to go bowling though). Keanu Reeves' Johnny Silverhand is almost always present in the game, so Phil discusses how your character, V, approaches that relationship. Given the game's mature themes, Phil also lets us know what we can expect from the romance scenes.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Google Stadia on December 10.
