Cyperpunk 2077 will have one hell of main storyline, but it’ll also be an open-world game, which means there will be a lot more to do then just grind away at the main campaign. Street Stories – Cyberpunk 2077 for side quests – will be largely different from the main campaign quests. They will be smaller and less cinematic, but will be very important in terms of help you be part of the Night City community.
Producer John Mamais explained a little more about how CD Projekt Red is approaching the whole open-world design structure in an interview with OnMSFT.
There’s a couple of layers. There’s a passive layer, which is the vendors, then there’s the STSs, which are the Street Stories. There’s around 75 Street Stories [and] then there’s minor activities as well.
The idea here is to put a focus on encountering interesting events and random stories out in Night City. The Street Stories will use certain templates, but each one will apparently be unique – a tall order if there really are around 75 of them, let alone new stories that may come along in future DLCs.
The Street Stories are like little quests. There’s story but there’s not, like, advanced cinematic storytelling sequences so much. They’re a way to explore the world and level up your character.
Unfortunately, we still have to wait a while to see what it’s all about since Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed until September 2020. But, stay tuned for updates as we’re sure there will be more info coming soon.
