After eight long years of hype and anticipation, Cyberpunk 2077 has finally officially launched. As fans would expect of a game from CD Projekt Red, the studio behind The Witcher 3, it’s a massive, complex game — and a damn good one, too. It has a surprisingly compelling story and a gigantic open world to explore in Night City.
I’ve spent over 40 hours with the game so far. That’s a lot of hours, but I still feel like I’ve seen only a fraction of what Cyberpunk 2077 has to offer. Still, there are a few handy things I’ve noted for those picking up the game on Thursday — tips and tricks I wish I knew before I loaded the game up for the first time.
What difference backstories make
When you start the game, you’ll be given the option of three backstories for V: Street Kid, Nomad or Corpo.
