Cyberpunk 2077 is shaping up to be truly breath-taking and more details are making themselves known. Another set of details is that players won’t be able to start a mass brawl against children or story NPCs.
CD Projekt Red recently took to Reddit in order to answer questions relating to the level of violent acts available. CD Projekt Red writes “You won’t be able to attack children or NPCs connected with the plot,” reads the reply, “but other than that you can be aggressive towards most people you meet.”
In a separate note, CD Projekt Red confirms that there are locations where aggressive behaviour has additional repercussions. For example, if you provoke a cop in the police-controlled territory, then you’re more likely to be in the middle of a police sandwich
Many games take this approach, such as the of Skyrim are invincible, although there are mods that change this. So, if you’re someone that is attempting to slaughter child NPCs, maybe have a word with yourself.
