Cyberpunk 2077 has all however confirmed it’s making two substantial expansions for the sport, with the primary one due out a while in 2022. Late 2022, if the present tempo of content material is something to guage by. But they’re dedicated to it, and followers are hoping for one thing on the extent of The Witcher three’s big Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine DLC, which might flip the narrative of the sport round.
Having heard about these two expansions coming for some time, for me, it looks like CDPR could be clever to focus them on two characters particularly, maybe one for every.
I imply, , proper? Panam and Judy.
Cyberpunk 2077 did many, many issues flawed, however one factor it acquired proper was creating some memorable and properly fleshed-out NPCs, a lot so I’d nearly put them up there with a few of my favourite Mass Effect companions when it comes to the depth they delivered to each themselves and the participant character of V.
Depending in your playthrough, their roles can change. A feminine V can romance Judy and solely be associates with Panam. A male V can romance Panam and solely be associates with Judy. Though this doesn’t change too a lot about how both story unfolds, and each are nice characters whatever the sort of connection you might have with then. The romanceable male characters (Kerry for male Vs, River for feminine Vs) are okay, however I don’t assume both rise of the extent of Judy and Panam, and so they’re actually not built-in into the principle storyline as a lot.
So, my purpose for CDPR is that no matter storyline they concoct for the enlargement, I believe they need to carry again Judy for one enlargement and Panam for the opposite. There have lengthy been rumors about Rogue AIs being the main target of a coming enlargement, given how a lot they’re teased within the sport, and it’s fairly clear that the tech-savvy Judy may very well be built-in into that storyline, if not be an important a part of it.
Then, conversely, you could possibly have one thing extra exterior of city once more with Panam and the Nomads, Panam being the one character within the sport who doesn’t even have seen cyberware. We’ve heard about different legendary mercs within the vein of Adam Smasher, like Morgan Blackhand, and that’s a possible storyline I might see involving Panam and her crew.
The timeline of those? I do not know, and that’s at all times been an open query as to how Cyberpunk was going to deal with DLC. It would both must happen earlier than the “point of no return” mission the place you meet Hanako and select one among a bunch of endings, or it must be solely standalone. For a Judy/Panam storyline, I believe it must be earlier than the purpose of no return for it to make a lot sense, given how each characters may be concerned within the finale, particularly Panam, who kind of has a complete ending devoted simply to her.
I couldn’t care much less about seeing Johnny Silverhand in any future DLC, and lord is aware of possibly they might lower your expenses on not having Keanu do extra voicework. Rather, I would like them to deal with the NPCs they acquired proper greater than another within the sport. Give us our Judy and Panam expansions, please.
