In Cyberpunk 2077, players will experience a long story across sprawling Night City and the Badlands surrounding it. While the main story will be very close for everyone, your journey will start quite differently depending on the Lifepath you choose. After finishing the unique opening, you'll find from time to time that you've got unique insight or dialogue options depending on your chosen Lifepath.

For example, a Corpo will understand what a particular business executive is really after, while a Street Kid and Nomad would not. It's somewhat similar in concept to the "origins" in Dragon Age: Origins. Here's a list of the Lifepaths in Cyberpunk 2077. Over time, we'll add more details as we learn more about how each Lifepath affects the story.

If you choose the Street Kid Lifepath, you grew up on the streets of Night City. You know the full list of gangs in Cyberpunk 2077 and factions such as Maelstrom, with insight into how street deals and rivalries go down.

The Nomad Lifepath has you grow up outside the walls of Night City in the Badlands, which are scarred by the effects of global warming and multiple wars. A character voiced by and modeled after Alanah Pearce can be found exclusively in the Nomad Lifepath.
