The biggest reason behind the popularity of Cyberpunk 2077 is the body design of characters and their backstory. After the in-depth customization feature, some players are wondering how gender will influence NPCs’ opinion of their characters. Cyberpunk 2077 enables the players to select the character’s gender separate from the body and their voice type.
