Dataminer Leaks Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer DetailsJanuary 12, 2021
Listen to this article
A dataminer has leaked exciting new details on Cyberpunk 2077‘s multiplayer modes. While CD Projekt Red has made it clear that the game is far from going multiplayer, an anonymous source of the leak has found some data that may shed light on the future of the game.
The dataminer found an executable file that exposes two multiplayer game modes for Cyberpunk 2077. Both modes come with functions never before seen in the game.
The first of these multiplayer modes is called “Heists,” which sounds reminiscent of the cash cow missions of Grand Theft Auto Online. The other is called “Deathmatch,” which seems to have more of a Call of Duty ring to it.
While only time will tell how (or even if) these multiplayer modes are executed, we have distilled the leaked functions of each mode below.
Heists Multiplayer Mode
One function of the Heists multiplayer mode is a four class selection system. This seems to suggest that players will have to take on specific roles in a team setting to tackle heist-style missions. The four class roles for this mode are as follows:
Before this leak, only the Solo, Netrunner, and Techie classes were known Cyberpunk 2077 play styles. The Heists multiplayer mode adds the Assassin class to the game, presumably as a vital component to the heist team.
We imagine that CDPR intends for each member of a heist team to perform specific duties to successfully pull off each heist. How these roles might be determined are yet unknown.
Deathmatch Multiplayer Mode
While it is unclear at this point how Deathmatch will be structured, this mode should be pretty straightforward. Players will be encouraged to accumulate kills on other players, though datamined functions suggest that players will also be able to kill themselves in this mode.
At this time, there is no indication of a team deathmatch multiplayer mode. Instead, this game mode appears to be more of an every-player-for-themselves kind of deal.
