While CD Projekt Red has detailed some pretty diverse creation options via Cyberpunk 2077’s player creation suite, the game’s cover art, at least at first, didn’t feature the same amount of diversity.

The main cover art for Cyberpunk 2077 features a generic male version of the game’s protagonist, who will be called V. Basically, if you’ve seen any of the trailers for the CD Projekt Red title, then you’ve seen the character who will be on the cover.

While the game’s main cover art will feature the male version of V, there will be an alternate version, as the cover for Cyberpunk 2077 will be reversible, with the opposite side of the cover featuring the female version of the game’s lead protagonist.

It was recently confirmed by CD Projekt Red that there are currently three different teams working on Cyberpunk 2077. Of course, the studio never expanded upon what the specific role for each team was, but right now, some are speculating that one of the teams is working on developing an online-based multiplayer mode for what many assume will be a single-player only experience.

Prior to going to work on Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red was responsible for developing one of the best games of the current generation, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which was a single-player experience. So, if they do decide to have a multiplayer mode in Cyberpunk, it’ll be something relatively new for the studio.

It’s been confirmed by the developer that players will be able to complete Cyberpunk 2077’s story mode without killing a single enemy, as each mission will grant players the ability to take out their enemies in a non-lethal way. So, it won’t be your typical run-and-gun first-person shooter.

During last month’s Microsoft conference at E3, CD Projekt Red, with the help of Keanu Reeves, revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 16, 2020. It’s also been confirmed that the game will have both a Standard and Collector’s Edition, with the latter featuring all of the following bonuses.

  • Reversible cover
  • A world compendium which details all of the game’s lore
  • Postcards from Night City
  • Map of Night City
  • Stickers
  • Digital game soundtrack
  • Digital art booklet
  • Digital Cyberpunk 2077 sourcebook
  • Digital wallpapers for desktop and mobile
  • Embroidered patches
  • Quadra VTech metal keychain
  • Annotated copy of a visitor’s guide to Night City sealed in an NCPD evidence bag
  • Collectible steel book
  • 25cm (10in) statue of V (the game’s protagonist) in action

With the game’s release being less than 10 months away, you should expect CD Projekt Red to reveal more regarding Cyberpunk 2077’s story, world, and gameplay at some point in the coming weeks.
