Former IGN journalist to become a non-playable character in Cyberpunk 2077

Former IGN editor and presenter Alanah Pearce announced in her microblog that she will appear in the upcoming action RPG Cyberpunk 2077 as a non-playable character.


The heroine Pierce was created in her image and likeness – the developers reproduced the nose, mouth, face shape, and characteristic features of the journalist (freckles, a mole on her cheek), and added mechanical hands themselves.

Details of the storyline of his as-yet-unnamed character Pierce were not allowed to share. It is known that a quest is associated with the heroine, which will be available only to those who have chosen the path of a nomad.

According to Pearce, CD Projekt RED approached her with an offer to participate in Cyberpunk 2077 in the summer of 2018. The journalist visited the development team twice – in 2019 and early 2020.


However, Pierce did not go through any scanning – she simply sent the team a “bunch of images”, including full-length photographs. Based on the pictures, a model of the heroine was created.

Pierce is not the only blogger to appear in Cyberpunk 2077. Earlier it was revealed about the character of the streamer CohhCarnage (see screenshot above). Fans also suspect that Hideo Kojima will be added to the game.

Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to be released on November 19 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and GeForce Now. New details about the project, including system requirements, CD Projekt RED will share today, September 18, as part of the third edition of Night City Wire.
