Cyberpunk 2077 Has Robot Ride-Sharing, Self-Driving Cars
CD Projekt RED is looking to have quite the immersive experience on their hands with Cyberpunk 2077, the tabletop-turned-RPG recently detailing extensive character customization and a relatively open-ended mode of play. There seems to be plenty to keep players occupied within the futuristic locale of Night City, but these busy streets are now even more so than once thought with the introduction of self-driving Uber cars.
Revealed in the game’s recent E3 trailer, Cyberpunk 2077 introduced the main character climbing out of a taxi before taking care of business, a seemingly innocuous detail compared to the spotlight-stealing debut of Keanu Reeves. However, it appears this drop-off is actually representative of the game’s many means of travel, UI Coordinator Alvin Liu confirming a prevalence of robotic ride-shares in an exchange with Prima Games.
“We have an AI robot Uber self-driving car service,” Liu revealed. “So if you hate driving, you can just call your local AI and have them pick you up.” As this amply automated future isn’t free, a round of Night City ride-sharing costs players a good amount of in-game money, so much that it’s said to stack up pretty quickly for those eager to leave their travels up to the Uber-bots.
With such a big world to explore in Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt RED is giving players a good amount of choice in how they go about it; whether it be robo-Ubers, branching conclusions, or the inevitable expansions planned for after the game sees launch. Cyberpunk 2077 releases for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 16th, 2020.
