There is no neutral option either.im hoping the news about having no male/female options isn't true, as i identify as a male.
i have no problem with having a neutral option, but i dont want to make a character that is ambiguous and just a close approximation to a male.
which leads me onto my next worry that it wont matter to NPCs what sex you are, you'll be able to romance them all.
and in conversations in general being male/female wont have any impact on conversations choices now.
i hope CDPR will handle it correctly, but im really over identity politics at this point.
entertainment in general is poor these days, i kinda had a lot hanging on CP2077
anyway ill say no more till i see more for myself, and make an informed decision
It's an RPG, so I think, the more options, the better. In a transhumanist fiction (which Cyberpunk is), it's only plausible that a category like gender is more of a "modular construction" and not just a binary choice.My biggest fear is what is happening now.. If I want to be able to choose my gender, why can't I?
I like to think that great works of art can be read from different perspectives and I'm sure that for CDPR's work, there is a route in between: By making the game about the gamer's choices, not the media's or people who think they make a valid point by caps-typing or reducing complex themes to black-or-white choices.If Cyberpunk 2077 does this, the real players, who want to play the game may abandon their hope in this company too, and if Cyberpunk 2077 doesn't do it, journos and other toxicity will tank reviews and spread hatred about the game.
Soo dear CDPR, will you appease your gamers OR the media? There's no route inbetween.
Well it did kinda worked in Mass Effect, but I am still very careful on my opinions plus internet already vent into full panic mode. Also it sadly caused CDPR losing lots of good will with community.
Yes, for the sexuality of your character, but NPCs accept or reject a relationship based on your character's sex, a man or a woman.Post automatically merged:

It was there. For example in the Matrix the character Switch was meant to be a female in the virtual world and a male in the real world. In Strange Days people bought brain records so middle aged men could experience what it's like to take a shower as a young girl. You also seem to forget that cyberpunk fiction is a reflection of pop culture and society. Like everything, it evolves along. So the argument that if something wasn't done in the past means it's irrelevant and laughable is flawed to say the least.Cyberpunk genre never played around genders and sexes until we got best film sequel "Bladerunner 2049" where the main plot is about replicant giving birth to baby. So that gender in future dystopia is negligible is laughable to think.
Lilayah (one of CDPRs CMs) said it'll work that way on discord. I'm string together a few bits here:
The posts that make up that quote was on official discord thismorning between 5:55 am and 6:00 am EDT (a little over 3 hours ago as of the time of this post).Your choices will shape your sexuality. You can also avoid all kind of romances and sex if you want. For example, me as female V, I can be homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual and asexual. NPC will have predefined sexuality. Lets say you are hetero and NPC is homosexual, mentioned NPC wont be available option for you. And it's not like you will see npc and first dialog option will be "hey wanna go somewhere quiet and get busy?"
The logical implication would be that NPC preference would be partially determined by the by "body type" choice. Haven't heard that confirmed 100%, but it seems like the obvious choice.Yes, for the sexuality of your character, but NPCs accept or reject a relationship based on your character's sex, a man or a woman.
