News about Cyberpunk 2077 has slowed down a bit since its release was delayed to September, but over the weekend CD Projekt Red gave us our first look at the new design for 2077’s female default protagonist, which will also serve as the other part to the game’s reversible cover art.
The old female default version of V, 2077’s customizable main character, has been featured in a few gameplay videos CD Projekt Red has released in the past, and you might not immediately pick up on the differences. In her revised design, she’s wearing less makeup around the eyes, her hair looks a bit lighter and is now buzzed-down on the opposite side of her head, and she’s got two pairs of piercings at the top and bottom of her ear.
Given that she’s striking the exact same pose as the male default V in the other cover art, I can’t help but suspect someone on CD Projekt Red’s art team realized they had to flip which side the female V’s head is shaved on in order to have it actually be noticeable on the box.
Whether you’re just buying a standard copy or the deluxe collector’s edition, the case the game comes in will be the same either way, so everyone who buys it on disc will have the chance to flip the cover around if they so choose.
Cyberpunk 2077 will offer a lot more character customization than just picking between the two default protagonists, and it has also decoupled the male and female-sounding voice options from the body type you choose.
CD Projekt Red will release Cyberpunk 2077 on September 17, 2020 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. It will also be available on Nvidia’s GeForce Now at launch, and is confirmed for a Google Stadia release. For more on Cyberpunk 2077, check out our guide to everything we’ve learned about the game so far.

Character creation in Cyberpunk 2077 Cyberpunk 2077 guide, walkthrough
At the beginning of Cyberpunk 2077, you have to create your own character. You can change your appearance, gender, voice, and style. During the game, you can change the appearance of your character through implants and a variety of clothes.
Choosing body type
In Cyberpunk 2077, you don’t choose whether you want to play as a male or a female. Instead, you define a body type based on your own preferences. The game also allows you to choose whether the created character should speak with a male or a female voice.
Of course, it is possible to create a “classic” man or woman, although this is one of the many available options. If after starting the game you decide to change V’s appearance, you can do that.
What can I change?
The appearance of the hero or heroine can be customized according to your preferences. Modification options include:
- Skin color.
- Appearance and eye color.
- Visualization of body modifications (they may resemble, for example, scars)
The game also allows you to select the voice of your character. There are no gender restrictions. A character that looks more like a man can speak with a woman’s voice, and vice versa. It is worth noting that NPCs never refer to the protagonist based on their gender. Our character is simply called V.
A separate topic associated with character creation is the genitals. They are restricted to the type of our character’s physique.
One of the steps in creating a new character is to select the starting attributes. You have a limited number of points, so it’s worth thinking about how you want to distribute.
Make-up and piercing
The game also gives players the option to use make-up and piercing. It is up to you how your character will look like.
Can I create a non-binary charakter (e.g. transgender)?
In Cyberpunk 2077, you can create any character. The developers promise that each player will be able to create the hero they want, be it a man, a woman or a person with a non-binary identity. This means that we will be able to change the gender of our character and customize it to our preferences.

New redesigned female V for Cyberpunk 2077
“Within these worlds we want to create games, therefore all the games planned so far are either Witcher or Cyberpunk“, said Kiciński. The news comes from Polish finance website stoop.pl, reported on by Eurogamer Poland, and translated by PlayStation Universe.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on September 17. “I clearly said that Witcher was a trilogy”. “The Witcher is always in our hearts and minds, but now we are fully focused on Cyberpunk 2077“, studio head Adam Badowski says.
Both the Witcher and Cyberpunk franchises remain high priorities for CD Projekt, with Kiciński confirming that all future titles in development would be set within these two worlds. Based on CDPR’s statements about their commitment to the Witcher and Cyberpunk franchises, it’s more than likely that this will be another Witcher title. Though naturally, if for some reason Cyberpunk 2077 was to bomb (and I don’t think any of us expect it to), that could change.
United States report finds widespread and systemic forced Uighur labor in China
Nova said at a panel of the Congressional-Executive Commission on China. Pompeo said, referring to the Chinese Communist Party.
It’s also unlikely that Geralt would return as the protagonist of a new Witcher game. He also comments on their new relationship with the author of the books, adding that they’re now “cooperating”; their new agreement and this new cooperation could take the next game somewhere entirely unexpected. A smaller team will commence development as larger teams continue to work on Cyberpunk 2077 post-launch content and multiplayer. V still looks like the hardened citizen of Night City we’ve seen in other trailers and screenshots, with a few key differences.
In a March 11 report provided by the studio, a slew of new information was revealed as CD Projekt Red shed new light on how developers will be focusing efforts following the release of Cyberpunk 2077.
Originally set for April, Cyberpunk 2077 is heading for a September release. — AFP Relaxnews
The Cyberpunk 2077 studio has issued a revised version of the game’s heroine character. In its latest vision of sci-fi chic, dyed hair, piercings and flight jackets are still in, but eye shadow is passé for the archetypal cyborg mercenary.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day, game studio CD Projekt Red took the opportunity to reveal the second side of its reversible cover art for Cyberpunk 2077, finalising an updated look for its default female heroine.
Cyberpunk 2077 has featured a male version of its lead character, V, in much of its publicity material to date.
That could change now, if only for a short while, with an updated look for the game’s female V.
Changes to an earlier version are minor, a refinement of CD Projekt’s vision as the game’s September 2020 release date draws gradually closer.
Its initial female avatar had shoulder-length, dark brown hair shaved on the left side, whose decorative tramline echoed the cheek-to-temple scar left by optic implants.
Those details have been adjusted to show dyed red hair swept right to left, four ear piercings and a lip ring.
Other similarities between the male and female V are now better emphasised, not least through a shared stance and furrowing of the brow.
V’s forearms are now replaced with cyborg equivalents that cover metal innards, alloy knuckles perforating synthetic skin where hand and finger meet.
Likewise, as with the more widely recognized male V, an enhancement-related scar traces its deeper, plunging arc from eye around cheek and over ear.
Both wear an olive flight jacket, with high collar housing a glowing cyan ribbon, now adorned with a red mushroom cloud pin and a textile badge with stars and stripes motif on the left arm – an early female V had a stars and stripes pin and lavender pink badge.
And both wear a grey and yellow T-shirt design sold through the game’s official website as “V’s Favorite T-Shirt”.
Cyberpunk 2077 is CD Projekt Red’s first game, since its 2002 founding, to depart from the medieval fantasy setting of The Witcher.
Based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels and short stories, The Witcher expanded into a trilogy plus various spin-offs; Netflix’s 2019 television series was based on the same Sapkowski collection, with lead actor Henry Cavill a fan of the games.
The Polish studio is again looking to pre-existing material to inspire its work, this time the tabletop role-playing franchise Cyberpunk, which debuted in 1998 and has since seen four major revisions – five including Cyberpunk Red, produced with one eye on the well-anticipated video game itself.
CD Projekt Red has previously been criticised for exploitative portrayals of women in The Witcher series as well as in pre-release material for Cyberpunk 2077. – AFP Relaxnews

“Cyberpunk 2077” Anticipation: Everything You Need to Know
Ryan Fredrick, Reporter
February 15, 2020
Anticipation is building for “Cyberpunk 2077”, CD Projekt Red’s upcoming project to follow the massively successful “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.” Originally announced in 2012, details about the science fiction title have finally been revealed along with a release date.
Trading fantasy for science fiction, “Cyberpunk 2077” is shaping up to be CD Projekt Red’s most ambitious game to date, according to IGN.com. “Cyberpunk 2077” is developed using the REDengine 4 game engine, with around 500 people, exceeding the number that worked on the studio’s previous game, “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.”
“Expectations are high considering ‘The Witcher 3’ is widely regarded as one of the best open-world games of all time. Though ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ is an RPG (role-playing game) much like ‘The Witcher 3,’ it is a new style of play the developers have never done before – a first-person shooter,” junior Seth Chaplin said.
“Cyberpunk 2077” is set in the universe of 1990 pen-and-paper RPG “Cyberpunk 2020.” That game features high-tech weapons and cybernetic alterations that players can make to their characters as well as a 1980s-style retro-future aesthetic, except the year is 2077.
“This is one of my most anticipated games of the year, but I am highly skeptical. It seems to be really ambitious, much more ambitious than ‘The Witcher 3,’ in fact, which is hard to accomplish,” junior Zachary Czarnik said.
In Cyberpunk 2077, the player plays as V, a young cyberpunk living in the metropolitan Night City. Though locked into its name, V is a player-created character that can either be male or female. Upon creating the player’s version of V, they can choose from three origin stories, referred to by CD Projekt Red as “lifepaths.”
“I am very interested to see how the decisions made in the game influence the overall story. CD Projekt Red has said that your decisions will impact the NPCs attitude towards you, and that could be a really cool mechanic,” senior Dalton Ottewell said.
During their E3 2019 press release, CD Projekt Red said that the player’s lifepath will influence how you are perceived and treated by NPCs.
“Cyberpunk 2077” will be released September 17 on the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Everything We Know About Cyberpunk 2077
Get your enhancements ready, load your credit disks, because Cyberpunk 2077 is going to dominate your game time.
CD Projekt Red are at it again, creating a world we want to get lost in, explore every nook and cranny, speak to literally everyone, and become the most powerful being in the realm. We are, of course, talking about Cyberpunk 2077, a game based on the pen and paper RPG by Mike Pondsmith, Cyberpunk 2020. While there’s no release date yet, that won’t stop us rounding up everything we know about Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set in Night City, a fictional sprawling metropolitan located between San Francisco and Los Angeles in an alternate California. As you would imagine, this world is alive and pumping. From raves blaring their beats and gangs firing on the streets, being aware of your surroundings is going to be critical to survival, which is why an awesome gaming headset will be crucial. As for who you’ll be playing, players become “V”, a gun-for-hire in this thumping and technologically advanced city. Looking to become an urban legend, V takes on the jobs no one else would dare touch.
At the onset of the game, players will be able to design exactly who V is to them: either female or male, what their appearance is, and their background, with all of it affecting how the story will unfold. This is where players will select their class type (Techie, Netrunner, or Solo), but players aren’t locked to that specific role for the rest of the game.
This is a fluid system, allowing players to expand and alter V to be the cyberpunk they want to play as. Players can freely shape their abilities and player traits depending on the actions and choices they make, the gear they choose to use, the clothing they equip, and the cybernetic upgrades welded into their heads. Just like any other person, V is going to need some comfort in this harsh world, which is why there are numerous romance options without limiting the choices to a specific gender.
A variety of weapons can be used, from melee weapons to fancy sci-fi guns with some incredible abilities. Weaponry that can target enemies through objects, guns that can shoot around corners and fire ricochet bullets, rifles with seeker bullets that track targets – it’s all here in Cyberpunk 2077. It’s a dangerous world out there, and the better your weapon, the better your chances of survival. One weapon shown off was called the Mantis Blade, the wrist-knives seen in the original reveal. These deadly blades will turn your enemies into minced meat in no time.
As for the story, it will be heavily influenced by player choice. The game is played in the first-person perspective, which ties into the ability to make decisions in a given scenario. Players might only witness a certain slice of the available information, giving a contextual awareness that shapes the decisions and choices players make.
What’s more is that Night City is an open-world, with hundreds of buildings to enter, thousands of rooms to search through, and several districts to explore. The line between good and evil is also a blurry one in Cyberpunk 2077, so the decisions players make will be tough, with no clear and present answer for any one situation. Expect to want to replay this game multiple times to witness as many different variations as possible, especially when you consider the multiple story endings available.
A lot of the details of Cyberpunk 2077 are held close to the chest of many CD Projekt Red employees, but one thing we know for certain is that the more we hear about this game, the more we need to experience it as soon as humanly possible!
General Now Trending data/categ2_13/10/2019
If you’re looking for a game offering ultimate freedom or control, watch out for the set release of Cyberpunk 2077. With multiple character customization options, character abilities, weapon ranges, and playing choices, no game nears Cyberpunk 2077 in diversity.
Cyberpunk 2077 allows you to customize all features of your characters. From voice, clothing, hairstyles, and body types, you can overhaul the outlook of your character. You can turn a male character into a female. Plus, remember how you customize your character influence their relations with other players.
Clothing tweaks impact your interactions with non-playable characters. And classy looks can attract companions and allow you to form sexual or romantic relationships with other characters.
To make the game even more interesting, CD Projekt RED, devised unique players classes, a range of weaponry and mini-games. Meaning, you can take on other players in boxing, martial arts, auto racing, or hacking.
The game occurs in a futuristic megacity riddled with lawlessness, corruption, violence, and lack of control. Every character possesses weapons; thus, you’re ever at risk of being taken down.
Despite the violence in the streets; the megacity has advanced technology, modern architecture, and robotics. You’re therefore sure of exciting adventure exploring the futuristic city and picking lessons in innovation.
What Cyberpunk 2077 Entails
In Cyberpunk, you take the role of V, a customizable mercenary. The character comes with a range of skill sets and access to weaponry. Completion of missions gives players access to melee, sniper rifles, blades, and athletics skills.
V can buy cyberware implants and gain military abilities from cyber markets. Besides, he possesses dazzling skills to help him counter enemies. He can jump, slide, run on the ground, crawl on walls, take cover, and aim.
Access to arm blades allows V to climb walls and harm foes with melee strikes. Despite access to multiple weapons, V can use options such as cyberware and other tricks to finish levels without killing other players.
Cyberpunk 2077 takes place in a futuristic modern city in California, which comprises six regions, all with varying lifestyles and inhabitants. You can land in a luxurious region or encounter robbers in a gang-infested area.
Advanced technology allows V to access autonomous cars, which he uses to navigate around locations and strategize on quests. V’s life reflects a normal lifestyle, as he can purchase property, use electronic devices, romance and have sex with NPCs
There are constant wars and conflicts between gangs and the ruling elite making all regions unsafe. Thus V must stay alert throughout to spot enemies and attacks.

Cyberpunk 2077 will be ‘a mess of effects’ and far bigger than The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
The female protagonist in the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer was a body-scanned Playboy model.
Polish game developer CD Projekt Red is starting to talk about its next big project, albeit tentatively.
Cyberpunk 2077 is the studio’s follow-up to the critically acclaimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and visual effects artist Jose Teixeira has told MCV that it’s a far bigger project than anything CD Projekt Red has done before. He explained how the visual effects involved in creating a futuristic world offer a new challenge for him, but he said it’s a challenge that he’s relishing.
“Cyberpunk 2077 is a totally different style,” said Teixeira. “In a way, The Witcher helped Cyberpunk quite a bit because the game got so big and so complex that it really taught us. For The Witcher, I had the clouds, the rain, the petals of flowers, and things like that. Cyberpunk is going to be everything: It’s going to be explosions and fire and lighting effects and everything happening all at the same time. It’s going to be a mess of effects.
“I’m very much looking forward to it. It’s going to be a challenge. Our ambitions and expectations about the amount of visual information onscreen at any given time is going to be pretty brutal.”
Above: Concept art for the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer from Platige Image.
The Witcher 3 offered players a massive game world to explore and up to 200 hours of gameplay. But Teixeira says that Cyberpunk 2077 is even grander in scale. “Cyberpunk is far bigger than anything else that we have done before,” he said. “Far, far bigger. We’re really stepping into the unknown in terms of complexity and size and problems we encounter.”
When I visited CD Projekt Red’s studio late last year, I found out that a small team — which fluctuated in size but was around 60 people at its peak — was already working on Cyberpunk 2077 while the rest of the staff focused on finishing The Witcher 3. My hosts at the studio remained tight-lipped beyond that, but I did find out some more about the birth of the project and its role in CD Projekt Red’s growth.
Back at the start of 2013, CD Projekt Red collaborated with the celebrated creative studio Platige Image to create a stunning trailer for Cyberpunk 2077. This was based on nothing more than a panel from the instruction manual to the old Cyberpunk 2020 role-playing game, on which Cyberpunk 2077 is based, and it’s something CD Projekt Red now has to live up to.
The trailer was intended to generate interest in the project and also act as a recruitment tool for the studio. It was successful at bringing new talent in from abroad, and as a result, the Cyberpunk team, which is now pressing ahead, is “truly international,” according to head of marketing Michał Platkow-Gilewski.
Cyberpunk 2077: You can only choose your character’s body type instead of gender
If one has been following Cyberpunk 2077 since day one, they must be aware of the controversies surrounding the game’s focus on gender and character creation. Initially, Cyberpunk 2077 was supposed to feature only two options-male and female when it came to creating a character.
This led to a lot of critics commenting about the game’s transphobic nature as the real Cyberpunk has a heavy emphasis on trans culture. Since CD Projekt Red is open too feedback, they took this one really seriously as well and as a result, the upcoming game won’t feature a traditional male or a female character to choose from.
Instead, players will only get the option to choose the “body type” of their characters and shape them up according to their taste and preferences.
In a recent interview with Metro, senior concept artist Marthe Jonkers expressed the studio’s vision of making Cyberpunk 2077 a very “inclusive” game. Hence they appreciated the feedback and changed all the necessary attributes.
According to CD Projekt Red, players will have the full freedom to create the most flexible character for themselves. One will only have to choose the body type and between the two types of voices-one of which is male and another is female.
You don’t choose your gender anymore. You don’t choose, ‘I want to be a female or male character’ you now choose a body type. Because we want you to feel free to create any character you want,
So you choose your body type and we have two voices, one that’s male sounding, one is female sounding. You can mix and match. You can just connect them any way you want. And then we have a lot of extra skin tones and tattoos and hairstyles. So we really want to give people the freedom to make their own character and play the way they want to play.
It seems as though Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be a quite big affair. In other news, we will also be getting a brand new look at the game in the new 15 minutes gameplay footage of the game which will premier on 30th August 2019.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be out on 16th April 2020 for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Google Stadia.
