Cyberpunk 2077 – All Customization Options So Far! (Skills, Perks, Weapons, Vehicles, Lifepaths!)

Cyberpunk 2077 – All Customization Options So Far! (Skills, Perks, Weapons, Vehicles, Lifepaths!)

What’s going on Neon Nation and welcome
back for another Cyberpunk 2077 video. One of the biggest pulls of a full-fledged
RPG is all the customization systems that they typically offer to give you as many possibilities
to have a unique experience. Today we will be going over all the RPG systems
and customization options in Cyberpunk 2077, so you’ll really know what kind of choices
you will be able to make when you make the plunge and dive into Night City on April 16th. First we have the option to choose our past
or origin story via the Lifepath system. These will influence dialogue options in the
game and will allow you to interact with different factions on a different scale. For example if you choose the Street Kid background,
your knowledge of the streets and gang life might allow you to press gang members for
deeper answers to your questions. These lifepaths will also influence how you
got to the beginning of the story, and although each lifepath starts off in roughly the same
conditions when you load up Cyberpunk, the way you actually got to that starting point will be
different. Lifepaths will also influence how your apartment
will be decorated, and although we will only have one apartment regardless of Lifepath,
this is definitely a plus. Our 3 lifepaths are as follows. First we have the Nomads which are described
as “Roaming the Badlands, looting scrapyards, raiding fuel depots – life on the road wasn’t
easy, But growing up in a nomad clan has its perks. Honesty, integrity and a love of freedom – qualities
that few in Night City possess and no amount of money can buy”
Next we have Street Kids. “They say if you wanna understand the streets,
you gotta live em. Gangs, fixers, dolls, small-time pushers – you
were raised by them all. Down here the law of the jungle dictates that the
weak serve the strong – the only law in Night City you have yet to break. Finally we have the Corporate Lifepath. “Few leave the corporate world with their
lives – fewer still with their souls intact. You’ve been there – you’ve bent the
rules, exploited secrets and weaponized information. There’s no such thing as fair game. Only winners and losers. Next we have something that im sure a ton
of you will be spending an inordinate amount of time on, and that’s the character creator. Within this we will have to choose our physical
style, what our character will look like and their physical traits. We start of with body type which you can match
with a male or female voice. You will be able to use sliders for body types
according to this post on reddit, but to what degree is still to be determined. Moving on to the appearance tab, we have an
expansion of the character creator since E3 2018, although visually it might seem condensed. If we combine these character creators we
have skin tone options, eye type, eye color, nose, ears, mouth, jaw, beard, surface wiring,
hairstyle, scars, tattoos, makeup, piercings. Moving on we have the ability to choose our
attributes, which will run into our perks and the fluid class system. The attributes include Reflexes, which funnels
into handgun, rifle and blade proficiency, cool which leads to assassination, nerve and
sniper rifle skills, technical which leads to engineering skills, intelligence which
leads to hacking options, as well as body which opens up shotgun, melee, two handed
and athletics options. This will allow you to hybridize your playstyle
although the archetypes of netrunner, solo and techie are the overarching styles of play. Raising our base level attributes is done
by levelling up and installing body cyberware, skills are raised by performing actions like
hacking crafting and using weaponry, and perks are unlocked via street cred and general XP. The Kiroshi implant is a type of cyberware
that presumably can make the HUD customizable as well. Your options when it comes to cyberware are
replacing things like legs, arms, torso and even your nervous system implants
Speaking of Street cred we also have clothing options and customization that will boost
resistances and add street cred, which is your social currency. Physical, thermal, emp and chemical resistances
vary from clothing item to clothing item. The visual styles of neokitsch, kitsch, entropism
and neomilitarism extend to not only the architecture and districts, but also the clothes and the
options in Night City will reflect this. Increased street cred will also unlock additional
vendors for more clothing, cyberware & customization possibilities. When it comes to weapons, we will be able
to augment how they look and operate. Skins, scopes, and even firing modes. Using weapons will augment your shooting proficiency
and will help narrow your crosshairs for more accurate shooting. You will also be able to craft specialized
ammunition that can be more lethal against certain enemies. Vehicle customization seems like its in the
cards as well, but nothing at the moment has been confirmed for this yet, although we do
know that different vehicles will have different stats. Thank you guys for watching be on the look

  2. I'm one of the schmucks asking for vehicle customization but not like need for speed or anything, kinda like RDR2 customizing your horse in a way, just things that fit Mike's vision. Are you hoping to hear from them at the game awards?

  3. What path are you gonna choose? I’m gonna choose corporate specifically so I can romance Meredith stout and clap them cheeks 😅

    Edit: Might also romance Sasquatch I want some muscle booty too

  4. how do you think you will make your character look? I kinda just wanna play as default fem V like from the 48 minute demo.

  5. in the demo you could see that in dialogue engineering, hacking, athletics (a kind of intimidation) and nerves are being checked

  6. I just want to be able to change the color of my clothes. Could have great stats, but the colors may not be to my liking.

  7. 2 more days until the game awards! We have to be getting a new cyberpunk trailer or at the least, new info. Think about it, viewership for the game awards has practically doubled each year since 2014. Last year, 26.2 million people streamed the event. If we continue this trend, this year around 52 million people will tune in. CDPR's marketing has to be aware of this and would be foolish not to take advantage of this opportunity only 4 months out from release.

  8. The more we know the more i worry 2077 will have similar problem Warframe has. The over abundant ammount of information thrown at you that have to know or learn before can enjoy the game. Not that it would make it a bad game just not new player friendly

  9. Hey wouldn’t it be cool to have a side mission in the game about a purist serial killer that you have to hunt down while he messes with your head and kill augmented people, just a thought😃

  10. This is all well and good, starting with all the minimum costumazation that options most games only give a few of. But what about my pervert run? What about becoming the Silver Surfer Cat Girl Assasin I was always meant to meme about?

  11. Which lifepath will you choose first? 3 run throughs of this game is going to be epic! Goodbye life in 2020 lol 🤪🎮

  12. How much do you think I'll be able to customize Night City when I'm burning it down? All the way to ashes or just down to rubble? 😂

  13. I bet you get a different car based on your origin. I notice that most of the Demo's involve the "Street kid" starting point and the car is the same one in the image… It would be an interesting idea and make sense from an RP standpoint. I'm pumped for this game.

  14. Customise your avatar even though visual feedback has been consigned to the fucking menu and very occasional cinematics (if we're lucky).


  15. There is no positive to limiting us to one apartment.
    Why I don’t get it.
    If my character is gonna be some money devoted merc I want to be able to get something that suits it. 😡

  16. O man cant wait already got about 4 characters i want to make one female nomand a male and female street kid and one corporate dude likes to use swords

  17. This guy doesn’t only make great videos but also his voice is so calm! Love this channel and every time I see a video I get more and more excited for Cyberpunk 2077.

  18. I was expecting something more out of Character creator. I wanted to be able to mix things, make like an amalgam of male and female and robotic parts. So I could look like an interesting monster of sorts.
