Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the year's most anticipated games, largely down to Night City's appeal and mystique.

Before you can go tearing around, though, you'll need to finish the prologue.


Doing so unlocks the ability to free roam, and if you're itching to start cruising the mad streets for trouble, you'll be pleased to know that the prologue isn't all that long at all.


Introducing the player to some of the most important characters, along with some basic tutorials, your initial experience is defined by your lifepath.

All in all, players can expect to wait around 25-40 minutes depending on how fast or slow they are playing.


Once the beginning set of missions is all done and dusted with, players will be able to check out Night City and begin completing side missions.

Essentially, you'll need to be introduced to Dexter DeShawn, who will give players a couple of leads for a job he's planning.

At this point, you'll be able to go and forge your own path – with tasks ranging from collection a weapon to intimidating a Police officer.

Have fun, Samurai!
