Cyberpunk 2077 Has Multiple Purchasable Apartments, But No ‘Companion System’
After the huge (according to GitHyp, almost 0.5 million tuned in on Twitch) and sudden reveal of Cyberpunk 2077's 48-minute long gameplay demo, the developers have continued answering fan questions via different channels. For instance, a Reddit user posted the snapshot below of a conversation with the official Facebook page of Cyberpunk 2077, where the employee from CD Projekt RED confirmed that the game will feature multiple apartments to purchase and/or unlock, much like Grand Theft Auto games.
Another major source of Cyberpunk 2077 news is, of course, CD Projekt RED's official forum. Replying to a thread where users discussed the viability of solo without companions like Jackie from the gameplay demo, Senior Quest Designer Philipp Weber (whose username on the forum is Benzenzimmern) explained that there won't be an actual companion system as in other roleplaying games. The developers will instead occasionally pair the protagonist, V, with specific companions during certain story quests, just like in The Witcher.
Hey, like in The Witcher, if the story calls for it, you will have a companion or two for a mission, but we don't want to do a "companion system" where you're never alone.
In some quests you will be by yourself, in some you will have one person like Jackie or even a whole group, and in other quests you might be alone or with someone else depending on the choices you made. We really want to have it fit the story, so basically you'll always have someone with you if we think it'll be interesting.
Like I said, it can also be dependent on the choices you made. Sometimes if you leave someone behind and it makes sense for the story for them to stay behind, we'll do it. And another time they might catch up. Whatever works best in a situation.
We'll keep you updated on any further details shared by CD Projekt RED on the hugely anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077.
