Today, we got the fourth episode of Night City Wire, CD Projekt Red’s show that gives us extra details to hold us over until Cyberpunk’s release. During the latest stream, we got a look at the vehicle types found in Cyberpunk 2077.
Gearheads will spot plenty of real-world inspirations. Some will look similar to major manufacturers like Mustang, Bugatti, along with a collaboration with Arch to make the in-game motorcycles, which were not featured in today’s Night City Wire. The only straight-up real car is a 1977 Porsche 911. Meanwhile, others will look like something unique to this universe.
Before we break down the cars, let’s explain how summoning your preferred mode of transportation will work. Think of Witcher 3 and how Geralt summoned Roach, regardless of where the horse was in the world. You can do this with your vehicle, but you must buy it first. While you can steal anything, but when your fixer calls you with an offer, drive over and buy what’s on sale. Now you can customize it and summon it whenever you would like.
The studio also confirmed that races are available. It was recommended to go for speed and power when in the city, but you may want to pick up something from the Nomads to handle the dirt roads in the Badlands.
Now here is every type of vehicle in Cyberpunk 2077, each having its own unique feel, style, and specs like horsepower and amount of seats.
If you plan on the Corpo lifestyle, this will fall in line with your character’s lifestyle. Executive is all about a combination of high-end technology and luxury, so you can relax as you go through the city. Villefort, Chevillon, and Delamain are some of the companies who make you these sweet looking cars. Need to impress? Well, you know where to look now.
Some people don’t care for cars and want to get from point A to point B. Economy is visually not pleasing, but it gets the job done. These low-end cars lack in luxury and the sci-fi tech that fills Night City. The utility-focused vehicles will have wires coming out to enhance certain aspects; it is not as clean of enhancements as you will see with everything else moving forward. Makigai, ThorTon, and Archer are some of the manufacturers that you will spot when driving any of these pieces of junk.
You may even find cheaper versions of more expensive models under the economy type. All you need to know is that if it looks cheap, then it is cheap.
Tanks and trucks are here for you if you need to plow through anything that stands in your way. These may not have the power when it comes to speed, but the strength of the armor and punch it delivers when hitting someone will do the trick when needed. Kaukaz and Militech are two major players in making these beasts.
While we got to see the trucks, no tanks were shown, but it was mentioned. Maybe we will not get a full-on militarized tank that will blow up a building, but possibly some kind of military-grade combat vehicle will be available.
Of course, Cyberpunk would spell the classification of muscle and sports cars as sporx. We see a further range of models than the previous two entries, similar to the cheaper cars but this is far from cheap. Gearheads will spot some familiar styles like Mustang or Corvette with these futuristic kinds of fast, stylish vehicles. This will help anyone out you want to win some races or needs to outrun the police. If this is calling you, then keep an eye out for brands like Quadra and Mizutani.
Supercars like a Bugatti is one thing, but CD Projekt Red raises the bar with hypercars. Take the luxury and technology from Villefort and take Mizutani’s speed; that is what brings you these game-changers like Herrera and Rayfield. The manufacturers will offer high-end materials to impress fellow Night City citizens while also being perfect for tearing through the streets.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches November 19 for Google Stadia, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Free next-gen upgrades will be made available for PS5 and Xbox Series X owners.
