Cyberpunk 2077: No Male or Female Character Choice
Who’s not excited for the Cyberpunk 2077!? It’s been getting high praise since it’s announcement at E3. However there seems to be a few raised eyebrows at the decision developer CD Projekt has made in removing the option to create a Male or Female character.
Gender is no longer an option in the creation of your character, but rather you get to choice your body type and character’s voice.
Senior concept artist Marthe Jonkers recently said in a interview with
Metro the follow on the decision:
“You don’t choose your gender anymore. You don’t choose, ‘I want to be a female or male character’ you now choose a body type. Because we want you to feel free to create any character you want,”
“So you choose your body type and we have two voices, one that’s male sounding, one is female sounding. You can mix and match. You can just connect them any way you want. And then we have a lot of extra skin tones and tattoos and hairstyles. So we really want to give people the freedom to make their own character and play the way they want to play.”
This is a interesting path CD Projekt has choose to take, let us know your thoughts below in comments Nerdz
