CD Projekt Red have detailed character origins and life paths in the latest Cyberpunk 2077 video. According to Quest Director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, each character background you pick will affect quests and story in its own, unique way.

We already know that Cyberpunk 2077 will have three origin stories for players to choose in the character creation. Corporate, Nomad and Street Kid are the options that CD Projekt Red confirmed and each of these background stories will give you a different playthrough, with unique actions, dialogue choices and more.

In the latest Cyberpunk 2077 video on Twitter, the game's Quest Director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz explained what exactly can players expect from these choices and how will they affect your relationship with other factions in the game.

In Cyberpunk 2077, players will have a big variety of skills that can be modified as you progress through the game and develop your character. These skills will allow players to approach certain levels differently and discover different options in the quest. 

Tomaszkiewicz then gave an example of two character origin stories. If you choose Street Kid, you'll have an easier time talking to street gangs all over the Night City or if you pick Corporate background, you'll have additional options when dealing with people from various corporations, which could give you an advantage over them since you know how they think and operate.

Unfortunately, Tomaszkiewicz did not mention the Nomad origin and how exactly could this choice affect the overall gameplay. Nomads usually live in The Badlands, which is a surrounding district of Night City but that's the only bit of info we have about the faction.

In other Cyberpunk 2077 news, CD Projekt Red and Dark Horse Comics revealed that the game is getting a hardcover lore book named The World of Cyberpunk 2077. It will launch shortly after the game - 21 April 2020.

Cyberpunk 2077 is hitting the shelves on 16 April 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

You can watch the video about Cyberpunk 2077 in-game life paths and character choices on the game's official Twitter .
