Despite the game releasing in only a matter of months, Cyberpunk 2077 is still something of a mystery. While we’ve seen a significant chunk of gameplay, a lot of the details behind CD Projekt Red’s highly-anticipated first-person RPG are still somewhat obscure, including the game’s length, the extent of the choices players can make, and just how vast the title is in scope. Luckily, a few of these burning questions have been answered in a recently documented community meeting.

Summarizing a recent Q&A with Cyperpunk 2077's developers, Reddit user Shavod revealed a sizeable list of new details about the game, notably commenting on both its length and complexity. Perhaps the biggest information they revealed is that the campaign will be shorter than The Witcher 3, but will aim to offer vastly more replayability due to the branching nature of the game’s questlines.

Shavod also expanded on that concept, claiming that certain branches of Cyberpunk's questlines will, in turn, have their own branches, which lead to new quests, decisions, and so forth. Essentially, the game is aiming to make it so no playthrough will ever be exactly the same, which is surely a goal that will excite many players. They also mention how the physics of cars is a major focus for CD Projekt Red, which wants vehicles in the game to feel as life-like as possible. Shavod goes on to hint that customizing cars may be a part of gameplay too, citing it as one of the fans' most heavily requested features.

Another large piece of information coming from the Reddit post is that CD Projekt Red is very interested in adding modding tools to the game, allowing players to create and add new content. This will no doubt be a big selling point to fans looking to customize and play around with Cyberpunk’s seemingly massive open world, especially as other RPGs such as Skyrim and Fallout 4 have massive modding communities.

Perhaps nodding towards the extensive level of branching narrative in the game, Cyberpunk’s developer also hinted that players could “burn down the city” with Keanu Reeves' Johnny Silverhand. Whether this was merely a joke referencing the popular trailer where Reeves’ cyborg anti-hero tells the protagonist they have “a city to burn” or a tease as to how drastic actions can affect the game world is unknown, but regardless, it seems CD Projekt Red is gearing up for another smash hit when the game launches early next year.

Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on April 16, 2020 on PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One.
