NIGHT CITY LIFE
HOW BIG IS THIS PLACE?
Night City is just as much a character in the world of Cyberpunk 2077 as any of the people on screen, and CD Projekt Red is promising a massive open world for us to explore. How big are we talking? According to the team the city is split into six different districts, not unlike the different regions of The Witcher 3, that players can travel through freely and without loading screens so there’s no break in the action. City Center is the largest region, dominated with corporate aesthetics and luxury. Next is Westbrook, home to the elite corporate overlords and billed as the most exclusive part of town. The other four districts are not as affluent, particularly Santa Domingo’s heavy industrial areas lined with giant factories and power plants. Pacifica is considered the most dangerous part of the city thanks to rampant crime activity. Finally there’s the residential areas, Heywood bearing strong Latino themes and Watson a primarily Asian district. These are the six regions where V’s adventure will play out, each with its own unique offerings.
