Map of the Cyberpunk 2077
The map in the game is very vast to explore. After a rough in-game measurement, the map is nearly 100-110 square kilometer range that is quite big to cover. The Night City, taken as the playground of the game, represents the open-world metropolis in California and have six regions,
- The corporate City Center
- Immigrant-inhabited Watson
- Luxurious Westbrook
- Suburban Heywood
- Gang-infested Pacifica
- Industrial Santo Domingo
The area around these regions can also be discovered by traveling more. Law enforcement is based on the region, for example, if someone commits a crime in Gang-infested Pacifica, then maybe the punishment is moderate even the law enforcement is not alerted at all as compared to if someone commits a crime in the Luxurious Westbrook, there will be strict actions against crimes.
Each area differs in style and looks depending on its status. Some areas are substandard, some are wealthy, and the people, shops, and buildings will reflect that. Different gangs are also taking hold of most areas.
Attributes and Experience
In the game, you will see a full day-night cycle and changing of the weather. If someone speaks non-English languages in Night City, then these languages can be translated using some game installations. To see other people’s experiences, “Braindance” is a device that allows you to do so.
There are over 100 main jobs, side jobs, and many gigs to complete in the game. After completing these jobs, you will earn experience points (XP). By getting more XP, you will see a rise in the level of your character. You also get the Attribute Points as you level up your character doing tasks like completing missions and other high-yielding activities around Night City.
