Cyberpunk 2077 Doesn't Have a Morality System

By Rebecca Smith, 24 days ago
With Cyberpunk 2077 offering so many choices to players, including an extensive character creation system and the ability to play the entire game without killing anyone, players were wondering if this meant the game had a morality system. The answer is no, as quest director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz confirmed to GamingBolt that they "don’t have a moral system per se".

Drawing inspiration from The Witcher, where players could make decisions where no choice ever appeared to be completely right or wrong, Cyberpunk 2077 will not offer good or bad choices. Instead, there will be a reputation system known as "street cred", where your actions determine which quests and opportunities you'll be offered as the game progresses. Other aspects, such as that non-lethal playthrough, will instead depend on how players upgrade their skills:

To complete it non-lethally you have to be very good at stealth. Invest in points that allow you to stealth better, use weapons that will allow you to incapacitate the enemy instead of killing them, to make the moral choices that will allow you to avoid killing people throughout the game.
You'll be able to choose exactly how good or evil you wish to be towards the citizens of Night City when Cyberpunk 2077 is released on April 16th, 2020.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Cyberpunk 2077 achievements.
