Cyberpunk 2077 Has Three Different Prologues Based On Your Selected Origin Story
Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt RED’s highly-anticipated open world RPG (and maybe an immersive sim), will have three different prologues. And this is based on what origin your personalised protaganist V you choose.
In a follow-up email to VG 24/7 from Cyberpunk 2077 lead quest designer Paweł Sasko, he has clarified that there will be three origin stories to choose from, which acts as the prologue, or as referred in the game as Lifepaths.
The full quote is as follows:
“The player in Cyberpunk 2077 can create a custom character that has one of three origin stories, that we call lifepaths: you can be Nomad, Corpo or Street Kid. Each of that Lifepaths has a different starting location and story background that are strongly connected with the origin story. Anything more I say can reveal too much from the story, so I will leave it like this.”
One of these Lifepaths begin outside of Night City, in the arid badlands. Most likely it’s not going to be the Corpo one, but we don’t know for sure.
The variable prologue is reminiscent to Dragon Age Origins, which feature various origin stories based on your selected class and race. Seeing this again in some form is nice, and should give you a good reason to go a second or third run just to see the other prologues.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be out on April 16th, 2020 for the PS4, PC (Steam, Epic Games Store, GOG) and Xbox One.
