Play OverviewPlay Overview

Cyberpunk 2077 (2020) is a sprawling open-world action-adventure that takes you to the seething underbelly of Night City, where low-life and high-tech meet in an obsession with body modification. You play V, a mercenary dealing with a botched heist, and develop your character as you explore the city, build relationships and take on new missions. It stands out not only for the scale of its crime-ridden world but how this weaves friendships and betrayals into a story about human identity and our relationship with technology.

You play as the mercenary V, who is looking for an implant that can lead to immortality. On your hunt for the implant, you'll explore the massive and dynamic Night City taking on different jobs, meeting people, and taking time for yourself. As you play and make choices the story will develop around you, from beginning to end each choice you make changes the story so that you follow a path of your own choosing.

Cyberpunk 2077 can be compared to large-budget games such as Grand Theft Auto V. The massive world provides players with the ability to play as they please but also provides a narrative for players to follow along with.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 18 for Bad Language, Sex, Violence. This game has received a PEGI 18 which restricts availability to ADULTS ONLY and is not suitable for anyone below this age. This rating has been given due to depictions of strong violence, use of strong language and depictions of sex with visible genitals. This game contains frequent depictions of strong violence towards human-like characters. Powerful attacks with both bladed weapons and firearms can cause dismemberment and decapitation, accompanied by strong blood and gore effects. Wounds and other injuries are very detailed and bodies can be mutilated further after being killed. There is a side mission in which a man chooses to be killed by crucifixion, recreating the death of Jesus Christ. The player is able to hammer in the nails and then raise the cross. The man can be heard screaming in pain and continues to struggle until he dies. The game also contains frequent use of strong language ('*!@?*' and '*!@?*'). The player's character has the ability to 'romance' various characters. Some of these 'romance' options lead to depictions of sexual activity, shown from a first-person perspective. In some cases, genitals are visible after sex has taken place.

In Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty the killing of multiple innocent characters can be undertaken at any time where there are such gatherings, although police will quickly attend the scene in order to deal with the player’s character.
