Cyberpunk 2077 Won’t Have Microtransactions or Battle Royale Mode

CD Projekt Red received the Steam Award for the Best Developer in 2018, and it was deserved. The Polish company game is best known for The Witcher franchise, but the gaming community eagerly awaits their new title Cyberpunk 2077.

Although it has been almost seven years since the official announcement, we still do not have an exact release date. However, it seems to be getting near as the company provided answers to some specific questions asked by the users. If you browse the reply section of the game’s official account on Twitter, you will discover some interesting stuff about the release.

The crucial thing is that there will be no microtransactions. The studio even laughed when the question was brought up by one of the users. Considering that the microtransactions have somewhat of a bad reputation (who said Electronic Arts), the community accepted this as positive news.

On the other hand, we also shouldn’t expect any Battle Royale mode. CD Projekt Red is not one to blindly follow the latest trends. Instead, they follow their formula and try to be innovative and unique. They succeeded so far, and we do firmly believe they can manage without BR and in-game purchases.

Not Exclusive to One Store

We also discovered that Cyberpunk 2077 wouldn’t be exclusively available on Epic Games store. With some time left until the release, this will be subject to change, but Steam users can also expect for the PC version to be available on that storefront.

The next in line of confirmations offered by CDPR is that not only you will have multiple companions available in the game, but some of them will be female. It remains to be seen whether these allies will join us throughout the entire campaign or be available only in particular sections. If we had to bet, we would go with the latter. That is the system the company already used in The Witcher 3, and it worked.

Aside from PC, Cyberpunk 2077 will also be available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For those of you that do not know (shame!), the new game will be an adaptation of the tabletop classic Cyberpunk 2020.
