Three Lifepaths To Choose From

Street Kid: The Denizen Of Night City
Street Kid
Born and bred in Night City, you have ample pre-existing connections with other people on the street and know the ins and outs of the darkest corners of this technological metropolis. Choosing this path is likely to affect your interactions with many people in the city.
Nomad: The Wandering Lone Wolf
Hailing from a group of people outside the city, the Nomad, as their name suggests, roams the wilderness of southern California at will, refusing to be tied down by anything. It seems something occurs to the main character to turn their family "to pieces", leading them to head for Night City.
Corpo: The Disillusioned Elite Agent
You entered the domineering Arasaka corporation with aspirations of climbing up the corporate ladder. Though ambitious and cunning, it seems that something goes wrong along the way and you leave the corporation. Perhaps having insider knowledge of their affairs will present some sort of advantage when trying to take them down?

At the very outset of Cyberpunk 2077, you will be faced with an extremely important decision: which Lifepath will you go down? The game will present you with 3 very different choices which will fundamentally shape your story and gameplay experience.

Street KidFor those who like the rough-and-tumble gang life.

CorpoFor people who prefer espionage.

Since the Lifepath you choose is mostly there to provide flavor to your game's story, we strongly recommend that you pick a Lifepath according to the personality type that you identify with most!

No Difference In Stats

Since there's no player power associated with this choice, feel free to choose the type of lifepath you think you can have most fun playing as.

Is It Possible To Change Lifepaths?

Lifepaths have an effect on the story flow of the game. This basically means it can't be changed in the middle of the game. If you want to experience different Lifepaths, you can opt to create multiple save files and play the game several times.

Are you gonna mention that certain things are only available to certain Lifepath or no? Because there's a car and an upgraded version of Jackie's bike that are only available to Nomads, for example.
