You can finish Cyberpunk 2077 without killing anyone

 

During the lastest hands-off demo of Cyberpunk 2077 at this year's E3, it was confirmed that you'll be able to finish the entire game without killing anyone. During a mission demonstrating different approaches to moving through an abandoned mall crawling with Animals—juiced-up gang members—some stealthy and relatively passive options to taking out or avoiding deadly confrontation were shown off.  In true videogame fashion, players will have the option to sneak up behind some enemies and kill them or knock them out. An environmental takedown method also allows players to put enemies in a chokehold and use nearby props to finish the job. In this instance, our V knocked the Animal out and threw him down a garbage chute, which was described as a passive takedown option, though I worry about the state of the guy's neck after tumbling down a dark metallic shaft from the second story. You can't curb V's aggressive nature entirely, it seems.   body .

Turn off cameras, upload daemons (malware) into enemy implants to knock them out from a distance, or hack into environmental objects—nearly everything is connected to a network—to set up some distractions. Hack a soda machine to make it spit out can after can to draw the attention of nearby enemies, for instance.  The ability to finish Cyberpunk 2077 without killing anyone runs counter to stories from last year's demo, which suggests plenty has changed since then. We have an interview with Cyberpunk 2077 developers today, so we'll ask for clarification and update this story with more details as they arrive.
