It will probably seem hard to believe given Keanu Reeves’ presence, but it will be possible to complete Cyberpunk 2077 without killing anyone. CD Projekt RED has confirmed this; in the person of Pawel Sasko, lead this designer of the game, during a recent interview.
“Right now every weapon and every object has a non-lethal option. Except, of course, for weapons that are lethal by definition. For example, let’s say you shoot someone in the face with a bazooka, that’s typically lethal.” Well, actually …
What Sasko meant, however, is that there are such destructive weapons that there’s no way to use them without killing someone, but all the others have options that allow them to be used in a non-lethal way: “You can put KO enemies, suffocate them and make them unconscious, put them to sleep and so on. There are ways not to kill them and spare their lives. “
As seen during the demo of Cyberpunk 2077 during the ‘ E3 , there are several options to approach a mission without being detected and thus complete the game in a stealth: players can take to sneak their opponents, but also use alternative methods such as turn off the cameras, infect enemy devices with malware in order to put them out of action at a distance, or hack environmental objects, such as a drink machine, to spit out cans on cans and distract the enemy.
In short, you will decide how to approach the game, and if you prefer to complete the game without dirtying your hands and your conscience, you can do it. How does it look like?
