'Street Stories' will help you level up your character in Cyberpunk 2077Platforms: Sony PlayStation 4 | Google Stadia | Microsoft Xbox One | PC
Cyberpunk 2077 may have been delayed until September but that doesn't mean the publicity machine has slowed down and we're starting to see more in-depth interviews about the game being published. The most recent one is with John Mamais over on ONMSFT which goes into quite some detail about the game.
While we know Cyberpunk 2077's Night City is something of an open world we weren't sure to what extent that might be. However Mamais has given a little flesh to the bones of the things that you might be able to get up to outside of the main story - specifically centring around the ongoing life in the city.
"There’s a couple of layers. There’s a passive layer, which is the vendors, then there’s the STSs, which are the street stories. I think there’s around 75 street stories. Then there’s minor activities as well." - John Mamais, CD Projekt RED
According to Mamais, the 'Street Stories' will act as smaller quests that don't get the full cinematic treatment that the main story quests might get, but will allow you to level up your character and explore the open world more deeply.
Mamais also clarified that the focus right now is totally on the single player aspect of the game - so while multiplayer is in the roadmap it would appear there isn't a lot of development going on towards that aspect of the game. He also clarifies that there'll be additional content released in the future that will likely follow the model they laid down with The Witcher.
Nintendo Switch owners shouldn't expect a port of the game to their console however - Mamais said "I don't know if Cyberpunk 2077 would work on the Nintendo Switch. It might be too heavy for it". However hope is not all lost as he went on to say "But then, we did put Witcher 3 on it and we thought that would be too heavy too but somehow we pulled it off."
The whole interview is well worth checking out so head on over to ONMSFT for the full story.
