Cyberpunk, the next game from CD Projekt RED, will offer "way more freedom with customization of the main protagonist" than was present in The Witcher games.
As opposed to the regular fantasy set-up with mages, warriors and archers, we're going for something different. In Cyberpunk, each character role will offer a set of special skills that will impact your stats in many different ways. That's where the challenge kicks in, we want to create a game where character customization will be strongly tied with the plot. Now going from that, we believe that we can make a game where, with many different role choices, you will get a very strong, engaging story, just like it was with The Witcher.
CD Projekt RED seem to have a strong focus on freedom in Cyberpunk, making it not only a feature of the character customisation, but also of the open world.
Cyberpunk's story takes place all over the world, but we're going to focus on it's most characteristic venue - Night City. One thing is certain, we want to make a game with an open, living world that stays true to the source material.
This is the first set of new details for this game since it was announced back in May, and I am sure there will be much more to come in future. Don't forget to keep checking back for more.
