CD Projekt Red’s upcoming first person action role playing game features an assortment of tough-as-nails Cyberpunk 2077 women. The fact players can choose between a male or female V character is telling enough. In the future, women retain their charms and sex-appeal but also dish out the punishment as equally as their male counterparts.
This contrast isn’t new in video-games and means players can make their choices in how to deal with each scenario regardless of their sex. This approach isn’t lost in Cyberpunk 2077 if we look at the juiced-up Sasquatch female boss character in contrast to how lead character V is represented. However, at least in this game there are alternate means of play which open up less-lethal opportunities for those exercising brains-over-brawn. Perhaps in this regard it offers a more intelligent way to progress as an opportunity to provide some personalised distinction between player’s choices.
Cyberpunk 2077’s, women fulfil familiar roles such as club bouncers, bartenders, technical wizards and corporate executives to name-but-a-few. These are presented as strong powerful roles, but the game doesn’t shy from traditional sleazy roles either such is the nature of the cyberpunk theme. All-said-and-done, the women of Cyberpunk 2077 are a varied bunch full of interesting quirks and characters. We can’t wait to take a closer inspection of their personalities and looks come November 2020. In the mean time, check out The Women of Cyberpunk 2077 video. A composition of video and stills featuring cyberpunk women from the various media released so far. There are two videos, the one above a SFW version and a slightly longer version below that contains more scenes.
