Latest Night City Wire details Cyberpunk 2077’s vehicles, fashion
The latest episode of Cyberpunk 2077‘s Night City Wire series has recently aired, detailing the different classes of vehicles that players can find, as well as the different fashion statements that players can make.
When it comes to vehicles, Cyberpunk 2077 has several different types of vehicles with different brands of vehicles within each class. It looks like a lot of effort has gone into making each vehicle feel unique, not just on the outside but on the inside as well, with fully detailed dashboards that will change depending on what kind of car it is, where you found it, and who the owner was before you stole it. (You can buy cars, too, but what’s the fun in that?)
The different vehicle classes are Economy (hatchbacks, vans, basic sedans), Executive (high-end sedans, convertibles), Heavy Duty (trucks, tanks), Sport (muscle cars, sports cars), and Hypercars (armored sports cars). The game will also feature the real-life 1977 Porsche 911, which is rocker boy Johnny Silverhand’s century-old car.
Players can also steal or buy motorcycles, but CD Projekt Red didn’t go into too much detail about those. They did show a segment starring Johnny Silverhand himself, Keanu Reeves, which showcased Cyberpunk 2077‘s collaboration with custom motorcycle company Arch Motorcycle to bring the game’s two-wheelers to life.
Cars in Cyberpunk 2077 are fully customizable, whether you want to fine-tune the chassis or customize the outside with stuff like solar panels and pipes. This will be especially important when it comes to the races that are in the game.
As far as calling and storing cars is concerned, CD Projekt Red stated that you can pretty much summon your car the same way you’d summon Roach the horse in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, though they didn’t detail exactly how that will work. It seems you can also store cars in your collection, though the developer didn’t state how or where you do that. You can also buy cars from your fixer.
Fashion, or “Styles,” will also play an important role in the game, though it’s unclear exactly how what you wear will impact your gameplay experience. There are four main Styles in Cyberpunk 2077—Kitsch, Entropism, Neomilitarism, and Neokitsch—which don’t just cover the actual clothing you’re wearing, but the cars you drive, the weapons you carry, and the implants you have. CD Projekt Red describe Styles as “warpaint,” so it’ll be interesting to see if certain characters react to you differently based on your stylistic choices.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches November 19th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Google Stadia. The game is also in development for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
