The world of Cyberpunk 2077 reacts based on your choices. The first of these is one of the most important, as it determines where your character starts, and how the world will react to them: their life path. In preparation for Cyberpunk’s November release, we’re going to dive into all three choices so you can be prepared to build your perfect V.
You’ll have three options to choose from for your life path: street kid, nomad, and corporate. The one you select will impact how you move through Night City, as you’ll encounter different characters, story beats, and conversations depending on your origin. In this video, Jake breaks down each life path, and explains how they impact V’s life leading up to the start of the RPG.
Life paths follow you into the main quest and beyond as well. CD Projekt Red has said that each origin will determine which characters you meet and your relationships with them, and though some will appear across life paths, their disposition towards you will differ. Jackie Wells, your in-game companion, is an acquaintance regardless of which you choose, but your relationship will vary as each origin gives the two of you a different history.
So which path are you taking to Night City?
