  • Greetings Earthlings! Welcome to the MadQueen Show!
  • I am your host the MadQueen
  • On today’s menu, we have a new Cyberpunk 2077 discussion video for you, and today,
  • we’re going to talk about factions
  • This is something that you asked several times and although we don’t know yet how the video
  • game is going to solve the factions system,
  • the lore gives us several options of factions that we can join
  • At first, I thought about grouping the possible factions depending on your style of gameplay
  • and how you were going to approach the game, but the truth is that this is the Cyberpunk
  • world, meaning everything is more or less like this:
  • Gray areas of morality: there’s no defined
  • good or evil, no absolutes, things will be good or evil depending on if they are useful
  • for you, or if they do some good to you regardless of the harm it does to others, because, in
  • the end, the goal of this universe is surviving
  • A great example of that is Biotechnica, for instance, the megacorporation that invented
  • a fuel that was the alternative to fossil fuels and solved the fuel crisis, and they
  • look like, and they advertise themselves like, they are the saviors of humanity, but then
  • they’re capable of spreading a bioengineered toxin through a whole city to sell the cure,
  • not to mention the shady genetic experiments they do or how they massacre or violently
  • extract workers of their competitors Revolution Genetics
  • All the factions that I’m going to explain in here have their own video explaining them
  • in deep, except three that I will upload shortly, I’m going to include the videos in links
  • that you will see here, as I always say, that’s the reason why I made so much lore videos
  • before explaining anything that can be gameplay related, now I can explain things in deep
  • linking one video to the other and, as usual, if you want to know the lore in deep you have
  • this beautiful playlist with all the lore videos that starts with an introduction to
  • the universe while explaining the character classes and then goes in deep
  • Please take in consideration that these are options that the lore gives, that doesn’t
  • mean that we know that you are going to be able to join them in the game, although we
  • know that they are going to be there
  • Let’s go for the list
  • There are boostergangs in Night City that
  • decided to take responsibility for the security of citizens and work to make it as safe as
  • possible for standard people
  • They fight crime where they find it, and even the Night City Police acknowledges their status
  • One example of this is the Back Alley Brawlers, they’re a guardian gang, but don’t misjudge
  • them, they are really tough and they know how to stand their ground in a fight
  • So you can either join them, or fight them, but you better have powerful allies if you
  • intend to do the second
  • This mercenary contractor and security megacorporation
  • is known for being the “good guys”
  • They are the only mercenary group that can’t be hired to make any kind of military action
  • against civilians, meaning you can hire both Militech and Arasaka to do so, but not Lazarus
  • They also stood neutral during the 4th Corporate War, as much as they could
  • And an edgerunner needs to make a living, so you end up accepting contracts from these
  • contractors to make some eurobucks to survive, but you won’t last long working for Lazarus
  • if you don’t follow their code of ethics, but this is the Cyberpunk universe, so such
  • code may be more relaxed than you may think at first
  • This is a great megacorp to side with if you’re a solo with principles
  • Each gang is a universe and some are more
  • deadly than others
  • Well, most are deadly but some will attack you on sight or throw a poisonous cake to
  • your face with a bomb inside
  • Yes, you know who I mean
  • Others may want to interact with you to sell drugs, sell information or even hire you,
  • but that doesn’t mean that they are not dangerous if you cross them
  • Every moment you spend living is a moment you spend learning
  • spend less time learning and more time living
  • With Raven IntelPlus brain implants
  • Reality redefined
  • by Microcybernetics
  • There are many different gangs, so I believe that it’s safe to assume that at one point
  • in the game you’ll be able to join some of them, I don’t think all of them, and
  • I also don’t know if we’re going to have a karma system, similar to Fallout 3 to give
  • you an example, where your karma and your fame allow you to side with one boostergang
  • or the other, because if you’re a cyborg in the edge of the cyberpsychosis that kills
  • left and right I doubt the Black Queens will welcome you on their side
  • Arasaka is the quintessential enemy, unless
  • you’re Japanese, of course, in that case they’re saviors that defend your country’s
  • values and fights for the supremacy of Japan
  • They are a security company and they are constantly looking for well-trained operatives to join
  • their ranks, as they’re constantly involved in conflicts all around the world, so everywhere
  • they need to go to defend their interests, they will be there with lots of guns and lots of operatives
  • Militech is the quintessential enemy, unless
  • you’re American, of course, in that case they’re saviors that defend your country’s
  • values and fights for the supremacy of the States
  • They are mercenary contractors and they are constantly looking for well-trained operatives
  • to join their ranks, as they’re constantly involved in conflicts all around the world,
  • so everywhere they need to go to defend their interests, they will be there with lots of
  • guns and lots of operatives
  • It’s not a glitch in Matrix, they are the fucking same
  • Infocom
  • If you’re a netrunner or a fixer, meaning you have the means to find the dirty laundry
  • of individuals and megacorps, the megacorporation Infocom, the ultimate detectives, may open
  • their doors for you
  • This megacorporation is specialized in information, their services are not exactly cheap and they
  • are always looking for new talents that are not afraid of SysOps and are ready to find
  • all the info for a generous sum
  • If you’re a cop, and you have what it takes
  • to deal with cyberpsychos, you may end up joining the ranks of the psychosquad
  • The Psychosquad is a branch of the Night City police that tracks down and neutralizes those
  • who got carried away putting way too much plastic and metal into their bodies and now
  • they suffer from the most dangerous mental illness of the 21st Century: the cyber psychosis
  • Cyberpsychos are dangerous, they are highly enhanced and their killing rampages are deadly
  • But if you join the psychosquad, you’ll have to deal with them on a daily basis
  • If you’re a Media you can either broadcast
  • using your own means or you can join one of these two megacorporations: Network News 54
  • or World News Service
  • These two competing megacorps will do anything to get to the story and be faster than their
  • competitor, and when a megacorporation like this says “anything” they really mean it
  • But these two corps are entertainment conglomerates, so they have other branches of their companies
  • that have nothing to do with news and information, so if you’re a Rockerboy or any other type
  • of Idol, you may find a position there for you
  • But be careful, Rockerboys that join megacorporations are not well seen amongst other edgerunners
  • and they will start calling you a pop star
  • If you’re a nomad, you need a pack to roam
  • the freeways with, you need a family to watch your back
  • Nomad packs are a myriad of individuals with different talents that help each other, loyalty
  • is unquestionable and they have a very strict ethics code
  • If you’re in a nomad pack, they will always have your back
  • Always and at whatever cost.
  • If you’re a Medtech, Trauma Team and Meatwagon
  • are the megacorporations that may offer the best-paid jobs for you, as long as you have the skills
  • Both megacorporations offer medical and revivification services and are a needed tool in this dog-eat-dog
  • universe, or dog shoots in the back dog universe
  • Being a Trauma Team Medtech gives you a lot of reputation, as they are the more skilled
  • amongst the artists of the technical medicine
  • If you're a netrunner, you enjoy the net and
  • you're tired of those vandals that have no appreciation for information and appreciate
  • random destruction too much you may want to join the Netwatch
  • This European megacorporation is in charge of the general security of the net, depending
  • on the region of the net you're in, the people of Netwatch follow different rules and some
  • may or may not be for you
  • And I think that these are the main factions that we can extract from the lore
  • There are other groups that you can join as an edgerunner, but I believe that these are
  • the main ones, and I don't want to make an hour-long video
  • You know I would talk about it for hours
  • Well, folks, thanks for watching
  • If you like what we do and you'd like us to keep doing it, please consider supporting
  • us on Patreon
  • See you in next videos and stay being amazing!

There are several factions that you can join when you live in Night City, here you have the most important ones.

Greetings Earthlings! On today's menu, we have a new Cyberpunk 2077 discussion video for you, or maybe I should call it Cyberpunk 2077 lore video for you, because all this is based on the lore.

In here, we're going to discuss the options that the lore in Cyberpunk 2020 gives us about factions to join during the game. Obviously, these are theories and we don't know how is the faction system going to be implemented in the video game developed by CD Projekt RED, but there are some options, mostly amongst boostergangs and megacorporations, that are more than interesting and can give us some details about the life in Night City.

Hope you enjoy!
