Cyberpunk 2077 offers some particularly advanced options for customizing your character. Yet unlike many titles, it seems CD Projekt Red failed to allow for a change of look (at least a little) along the way. For example to change hairstyle like in real life …
Omission, deliberate choice, or umpteenth bug? You know, Cyberpunk 2077 has been available since December 10, 2020, and the first returns are multiplying. Feedback it must be said especially dominated by the many bugs that currently plague Cyberpunk 2077, especially on console. But beyond these issues – which will eventually be addressed via an update in the coming weeks – our colleagues from Kotaku point out to us that it is not possible to change the look of V along the way.
You can’t get new tattoos, change the color of your hair, change your nails, or have a gold tooth installed. Even though the options for customizing your character are particularly extensive here, since theyou can choose … up to the size of your penis. This absence is all the more strange as the appearance of the character evolves all the same in the plot, even if it’s a bit rigid. for example in the first 25 minutes, you are inserted new cybernetic eyes in the sockets.
In addition, players are used to being able to change their appearance in the latest games of the moment, as for example in Rivia or Animal Crossing. And while the game is mostly first person, you can see V’s face many times, whether in a mirror or in the reflection of the windows. So it seems that allowing a few elements of your look to be changed would have been a good idea in a graphically very successful game. Kotaku nevertheless notes that this type of somewhat rigid mechanics exists with other publishers.

This is indeed also the case for example in the last two Two Ex which also offer advanced customization options early in the game without allowing you to change anything along the way.
