Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year!

If you’re anything like us, and you just want to know everything you can about the hit title, we have the articles for you!


Video games have taught us that death isn’t always the end, rebirth is just one respawn away.

Though some recent games, like Watch Dogs: Legion, have introduced permadeath into their game worlds!

Does Cyberpunk 2077 have a similar mechanic?

What happens when you die in Cyberpunk 2077?


Is There Permadeath In Cyberpunk 2077?

The simple answer is no!

We can’t say for certain that an optional game mode or a mod won’t let your die permanently but at this time nope, no permadeath.

There also don’t seem to be any consequences for dying.


At this time it doesn’t look like you’ll get any Fable 3 style scars either!

So it looks like you can die and restart as much as you want.

Though, this, unfortunately, doesn’t translate to your NPC companions.

If an NPC dies, they stay dead.


If you have a companion mission, it fails, if you lose a gang boss, they stay gone.

It is possible that some NPCs will be protected, but we aren’t sure who these characters are at this time!

We’ll be sure to update this page when we know more about death in Cyberpunk 2077
