Cyberpunk 2077: How To Complete it Without Finishing The Main Quest

The quest system is Cyberpunk 2077 seems a lot deeper than originally expected.

Cyberpunk 2077 launches on November 17, and it's undoubtedly the most anticipated game still to come in 2020.

Apparently, it’s possible to actually complete Cyberpunk 2077 without fully completing the main plot.

Here's what we know and what Pawel Sasko had to say.

Finish Cyberpunk 2077 Without Completing Main Quest

It seems that you'll be able to complete Cyberpunk 2077 without finishing the main storyline.

Polish site Spider's Web conducted an interview with lead quest designer Pawel Sasko where he confirmed it's possible to complete the game without finishing the main quest.

“We built the Cyberpunk structure based on the conclusions we drew from The Witcher 3,” Sasko stated. “The Witcher had the main stem of history and side threads departing from it, and this was our main structure, which we call the ear.”

“So in Cyberpunk’s structure we have this wheat spike, which serves as its center, the main storyline with different subplots surrounding it, which can be triggered in various ways,” he continued.

“Those subplots allow us to do something that we have never done before – they change the main plot of the game and they are doing that in such a way that you may not even finish the main plot, but still finish the game and get a completely different epilogue than the player with a different lifepath who made different choices, met different characters and formed relationships with them.”

Pawel revealed that the story will differ depending on the life-path you choose at the start of the game.

“You may have noticed that depending on which history of origin you chose, Jackie’s story changed, this is one example of the fact that depending on the chosen path of origin – as a character you were born in a different place, you have a different story, and therefore both Jackie’s story and your relationship with him was different."

Sasko said that it's a bit of a butterfly effect, that your choices at the begging can dramatically impact the world you live in and how it looks.

As well as this some quests and whether they are available will be dependant on the choices you make in your life.

Overall it seems the game is moulded around the decisions you make at the begging so do some digging and figure out what you want to do!
