The latest updates for "Cyberpunk 2077" reveal new details about the game's narrative story. Level designer Miles Toles told GamingBolt during an interview, that the game's side quests will affect the outcome of the main story.

Toles also revealed the Night City's police will be as dangerous as the criminal organizations. "Cyberpunk 2077" is CD Projekt RED's newest project since they finished "The Witcher" game series. Players will assume the role of V, a cyborg mercenary who executes jobs from the criminals and corrupt corporate heads in order to survive the harsh and cruel open-world of the Night City.

Side quest aftermaths

Miles Tost previously stated that side quests and activities in "Cyberpunk 2077" will be treated as separate entities from the main story. However, Tost's latest interview with GamingBolt revealed that there are consequences when players are engaged in side quests and whatever the result, it will have repercussions in the main narrative.

"Despite not being a part of the main questline, they are still connected to the world and can elaborate on certain parts of it, like the characters," Toles told GamingBolt. "So it’s all interwoven. And yes, that also means that our side quests could affect the main story."

This is similar to how CD Projekt RED incorporate cause and effect scenarios in "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" as the players must face whatever consequence they encounter based on their actions.

"Cyberpunk 2077" will feature player choices that will allow V to approach in any given situation, whether they do it peacefully or violently.

Night City police force is no joke

According to Comic, Tost stated Night City's lawmen are no "pushovers," as they will react to anything V does in the streets. Like any other Night City denizens, the police force is equipped with advanced cybernetics and weaponry, making them more dangerous than the local gangs and mercenaries.

Players can get new cybernetic hardware for V in local black markets and they are very expensive to purchase. While the parts can give V access to new skills for a particular mission, there are also side-effects that could leave them helpless.

There are also smart weapons for V to use in battle and upgrading could give them more firepower such as x-ray vision and ricochet bullets. Tost also confirmed that the game can still work properly in the current game consoles and explained that the software is more than capable in handling its design.
