CD Projekt RED has been pretty quiet about their upcoming sci-fi RPG Cyberpunk, but the developer did answer a few community questions today, and we're hearing a little more about gameplay.
Community manager Marcin Momot fields the fan questions, going over everything from the game's inspiration to apologizing (sort of) for the lack of screenshots and videos thus far. One fan by the name of "Mihura" asked the studio a question regarding character customization and whether Cyberpunk might see more of that than The Witcher. Momot doesn't go into details, but he did note that at least from a gameplay perspective, the sci-fi protagonist will be more malleable than Geralt of Rivia.
Here's the question and answer:
Mihura: Will there be full customization of our character like a D&D game, things like gender, ethnicity, moral stand point, sexuality...etc or we will be restrict to something like Geralt from TW2?
MM: We definitely want to give players way more freedom with customization of the main protagonist then they had with Geralt in The Witcher series. We are planning on letting them change their statistics, equipment, implants and much more.
While Mihura did ask about features like gender and sexuality, Momot skips over some of those. We're not going to read too much into that, but having a fixed character wouldn't surprise us.
As for setting, the game will focus mostly on Night City, though the story takes place "all over the world." The full question-and-answer session can be found at the source, but it's not particular long.
