The latest updates for the first-person sci-fi RPG title, "Cyberpunk 2077," reveal new gameplay details and features. CD Projekt RED announced that the game will not feature a Companion System. The Polish video game developers also talked about purchasable apartments, adding a Photo Mode, and reactions from NPCs regarding the player's character customization.

"Cyberpunk 2077" is CD Projekt RED's new RPG title after "The Witcher" game series and they based it on a 1988 tabletop game, "Cyberpunk 2020." It is set in the dystopian metropolis of Night City and players assume the role of V, a mercenary equipped with cybernetic implants who tries to survive the harsh and cruel environment of the future.

No Companion System for Cyberpunk 2077

According to VGR, senior quest designer Philipp Weber stated that "Cyberpunk 2077" does not have a Companion System similar to titles such as "Mass Effect," "Dragon Age," and even "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt." Although, he did explain that V will have companions like Jackie to stick around during missions.

The idea of a Companion System is that players are paired up with a specific character that could end up in a romantic relationship. They can also do activities together as part of a side-quest or mini-games.

But Weber insisted that there is no system for it and players will be paired up with different NPCs in the course of the story, or perform certain missions alone, depending on the choices they make.

Every action V makes will shape the course of the story and the relationships that the player's created. They can be their greatest allies, or turn out to be their worst enemy.

Additional in-game features

According to Game Rant, players can purchase different apartments in Night City similar to "Grand Theft Auto 5" and "GTA Online." CD Projekt RED also announced that they are adding Photo Mode in "Cyberpunk 2077" and players can customize the filter of the photos they have taken.

The Gamescom demo featured character customization for V in the game and players can change it however they like from gender, body type, and facial features to clothing and cybernetic mods. Co-quest designer, Patrick Mills, stated NPC's will react to how V looks in the game including whether it will be good or bad comments. The first-person perspective allows players to see Night City through the eyes of V giving them options to explore and experience new and odd things.

"Cyberpunk 2077" will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
