In this guide by cyberpunk 2077 we will explain to you how to see all the endings of the game and what are the requirements to unlock them.
As a good RPG and in line with the other works of CD Projekt RED, Cyberpunk 2077 also presents more than one epilogue based on the choices made by the player in the role of V. In total there are four, plus a rather inconclusive "negative ending" for the purposes of the narrative, but which we will talk about anyway in this article.
Accessing an ending rather than another depends above all on the choices you make just before the quest "Notturno Op 55 n ° 1" that will affect the final mission. At its end, you will be able to access a specific epilogue, in most cases choosing between two very different options. Incidentally, there is also an alternate "secret" version of the final mission which is unlocked by respecting the precise requirements, which we will discuss at the end of this article.
Below we will explain how to access the various versions of the latest mission and therefore how to unlock all the endings of Cyberpunk 2077. Obviously, from here on, the spoiler. If you haven't finished the game yet, we advise you to do it by choosing the options you think are most right without making you too much trouble and come back here later to find out how to access the other epilogues.
In fact, you will be able to see all the endings of Cyberpunk 2077 and get all the Trophies and Objectives related to them in a single run. After the credits, you will be offered the option to return to Night City before the game's "tipping point", represented by the mission. "Night Op. 55 No. 1" and then repeat the final mission making different decisions to see all the other endings, as long as you have met specific requirements.
How to see all Cyberpunk 2077 endings
There are several variations of the final mission of Cyberpunk 2077. The course will be influenced by the choices made during "Nocturne Op. 55 # 1" and the alliances formed by V during the game. Furthermore, at the end of the mission, you will find yourself facing a further crossroads that will define the epilogue of your adventure in Night City.
During the scene on the terrace of the mission "Notturno Op. 55 n ° 1" you will find yourself alone with Johnny Silverhand to discuss with whom to ally and how to act, a crucial decision that will significantly influence the events of the last mission.
Accept Hanako Arasaka's proposal
- Requirements: nobody
- Final: "Where is my mind?" (two variants) and Trophy / Objective the "Devil" (if you saved Takemura, more details below)
During your conversation with Johnny on the terrace, choose the option: "Trusting the Arasaka is risky, but I think it's worth it".
You will therefore decide to accept Hanako Arasaka's proposal to ally you against her brother Yorinobu to get her complete control of the corporation. After hiring the omegablockers and saying goodbye to Johnny, V will be escorted by car by Hellman and Takemura (if he is still alive) to the mansion where Hanako is being held. Once you have cleaned up and freed the woman, you will go to the Arasaka headquarters where you will try to convince the board of directors that the real murderer of Saburo is Yorinobu. However, the meeting will be interrupted at the most beautiful moment by the latter's armed forces who will try to eliminate you.
At this point you just have to win, complete the objectives, defeat Adam Smasher (a constant in all versions of the final mission) and attend the various dialogues that will follow.
Once the mission is over, you will find yourself aboard the Arasaka space station, after Johnny's biochip has been removed through a delicate surgical operation. You will be subjected to a seemingly endless series of clinical tests, until V refuses to continue. Later Takemura or Hellman will explain to you that the biochip was successfully removed, but that this caused irreparable damage to V's body, which is destined to die within a few months. However, you still have a chance for salvation, if we can call it that. You will be offered to digitize V's mind into an engram, thanks to the experimental project "Secure your soul", which will later be stored in the Mikoshi of the Arasaka.
The choice is yours, you can choose to sign the contract or decline, which will lead you to one of two variants of the finale "Where is my mind?" by Cyberpunk 2077.
In the first case, V will undergo the surgery to digitize his mind, with the credits starting while the protagonist is under the knife. Refusing to sign the contract, V decides to return to Earth and live the few months he has left as a free man.
During the final mission you will also get the Trophy / Objective "The devil" only if you saved Goro Takemura in the "Search and Destroy" mission. To do this, when you are attacked by the forces of the Arasaka, you will have to ignore the mission objective of abandoning the building. Arrived in the room with the neon cross, turn left through the hole in the wall, pass the enemies and go up the stairs to reach Takemura and save him.
Assault the Arasaka with Rogue by giving Johnny control
Requirements: Rogue side mission "Blistering Love" must be completed. It is unlocked by completing "Chippin 'In", accepting Johnny's request to have a date with Rogue, as long as you are friendly to the rocker during the conversation in the oil fields.
Possible endings: "Path of Glory" o "New Dawn Fades"
During the conversation with Johnny on the terrace, choose the option: "You and Rogue should go".
V will take the pseudoendotrizine and leave control of his body to Johnny, who will attack the Arasaka tower asking for Rogue's help. After contacting Alt and completing the preparations, Johnny, Rogue and the mercenary Weyland will attack the Arasaka tower with the aim of reaching the Mikoshi and heal V.
Again, just follow the mission objectives, making your way through showers of bullets, up to the clash with Smasher, where Rogue will sacrifice himself to give us the chance to survive and win the clash. Once the boss is defeated, we can decide to permanently reset it to take revenge for the death of Johnny's beloved.
Upon reaching the Mikoshi, Johnny will connect to the network allowing Alt to access it. Unfortunately, there is bad news: even by removing the biochip, V's body is now compromised and he has no more than 6 months left to live, but if Johnny gets complete control there will be no consequences. Only one of the two can survive therefore, with the other that will become a digitized AI and will go with Alt beyond the Blackwall.
At this point as Johnny you will have two options: follow Alt and leave his body V-shaped or take control of it definitely.
Path of Glory: Johnny chooses to leave his body to V and greets his friend before entering cyberspace. In the next scene you will wake up in V's apartment, who in the meantime has become the most famous mercenary in Night City after the events of the Arasaka Tower. You will head to After Life, which you have meanwhile become the owner, to accept an assignment from "Mr. Blue Eyes", who will ask V to storm an Arasaka casino located in space. The game ends with V in a spacesuit among the stars, armed and ready to begin the operation. This ending unlocks the "The Sun" Trophy / Achievement
New Dawn Fades: Johnny chooses to maintain control of V's body, with or without his consent, sending V's consciousness into cyberspace. In the next sequence, you'll wake up as Johnny, now in complete control of V. With the prospect of a second chance, the rocker has decided to leave Night City forever and build a new life. After saying goodbye to Rogue and V at the Columbarium for the last time and buying a guitar for Steve, a boy he befriended, Johnny will board a bus, leaving the city behind. This ending unlocks the "Temperance" achievement / trophy.
Ask Panam for help
Basic requirements: Complete all Panam side missions. It is not necessary to have a romantic relationship with this character.
Possible endings: "All Along the Watchtower" o "New Dawn Fades"
During your conversation with Johnny on the terrace, choose the option: "I'll ask Panam for help". You will therefore choose to take on the omegablockers and storm the Arasaka tower together with the Nomads.
Once again you will have to make your way through the enemies of the Arasaka by completing the mission objectives and finally defeating Smasher. Once he reaches the Mikoshi, Alt unfortunately will not give you good news: due to the biochip V he will die within 6 months, even if it is removed, but on the contrary there will be no consequences if he leaves complete control to Johnny. Basically the same outcome as the final mission with Rogue, but with reversed parts. In fact, it will now be V to take a delicate decision, which will lead to two different endings:
"All Along the Watchtower": V chooses to keep full control of his body, sending Johnny into cyberspace. In the next sequence, we will wake up near the Night City Dam. V has decided to join the Aldecaldos and leave Night City forever and live the time he has left as a free man and, if he is in a relationship with Judy or Panam, together with his better half. This ending unlocks the "The Star" trophy / achievement.
"New Dawn Fades": V decides to enter cyberspace leaving control of his body to Johnny Silverhand. The ending is practically identical to the one we talked about in the previous section and also in this case he unlocks the Trophy / achievement "The Temperance".
Get it over with
Basic requirements: nobody
Final: negative ending
To unlock this negative ending, which by the way does not unlock any Trophy / objective, during the conversation on the terrace choose any option available to attack the Arasaka and in the next screen select "I could just get it over with".
V will decide not to continue his battle, throwing the pills away and killing himself with a gunshot, as it is the "cleaner and less violent" option that does not involve anyone. In the credits, the various characters of Cyberpunk 2077 will comment on V's death and his decision to end it all.
Suicide Mission "(Don't Fear) The Reaper"
Basic requirements: have completed the secondary mission of Rogue "Blistering Love" and have an affinity with Johnny Silverhand of at least 70% (the central icon of the three at the top of the menu) following him in his dialogues and requests, but without being too compliant.
Final: "The Sun", "New Dawn Fades" or negative ending
To unlock this secret alternate version of the final mission, during the conversation with Johnny on the terrace you simply have to stay silent, that is, do not choose any option, for about 5 minutes. At this point Johnny will interpret V's silence as a desire not to involve anyone else. He will then offer you an alternative solution, which he will define as a "crazy suicide mission". And it actually is. In fact, the rocker's plan is to storm the Arasaka Tower without anyone's help.
We advise against choosing this option if you are not confident enough in your combat skills or well equipped. The assignment "(Don't Fear) The Reaper", in fact, is an alternative version of the final mission in which you will be alone against the forces in the Arasaka Tower, which will drastically increase the difficulty. Furthermore, you will have only one chance: there are no checkpoints and in the event of a game over, the credits will start directly, with V's friends commenting on his death, just like in the negative ending in which he decides to commit suicide. In this case, at the end of the credits you can decide whether to try this suicide mission again or to opt for a different option.
In case you manage to escape unscathed from the mission "(Don't Fear) The Reaper", you will again find yourself faced with the decisions that lead to the endings. "New Dawn Fades" e "The Sun", with the difference that in the latter Rogue will still be alive and you will meet her at Afterlife.
