In an in-depth interview yet to be unveiled in full with AusGamers, CD Projekt RED lead Cyberpunk 2077 quest designer, Paweł Sasko, enthusiastically explained how the game's "fluid class system" and its character "life maps" would ultimately create a unique gameplay and narrative experience player-to-player, based on how you've created you in-game avatar.

"Yeah that is an excellent question," Sasko remarked when we used a timely Keanu and The Matrix reference around "how deep does the [quest] rabbit hole go?" -- a question he thoroughly enjoyed. "In The Witcher 3 [and its expansions], we made a branching storyline in an open-world. [In Cyberpunk] we are also doing a branching storyline in another open-world, [but] we are adding branching gameplay to it.

"Depending on a player's choices; different classes -- thanks to our fluid class system -- we are able to actually make different decisions; different choices. And [with that] the player can play the whole thing in completely different ways. It's really amazing. And we're really using all the experience that we gathered throughout The Witcher 3, and even throughout The Witcher 2, to make Cyberpunk [the best we can] with all of our experience from those games [and their] expansions."

Even more enthusiastically, Sasko also revealed that a large majority of his quest and mission design team are veterans within the studio and worked on the aforementioned with him.

"[A lot of the team] have been there for a long time," he tells us. "And because most of the team stayed intact for all that time I am very grateful... to be with CD Projekt RED; to be with my team, and to build this together. There's lots of experience that we gathered together, and for me the level that we had in The Witcher 3, in our stories -- that's, like, level zero for me right now, like, 'this is what we expect from CD Projekt' kind of thing. But now [with Cyberpunk] it's time to take it to another level."

We'll share our in-depth conversation with Paweł very soon, so be sure to stay tuned.

Cyberpunk 2077 joined our AusGamers Top 10 Best of E3 list for 2019, and releases on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in April, 2020.
