Cyberpunk 2077 Romance Guide

Which characters can you romance in Cyberpunk 2077? In this Cyberpunk 2077 guide, we're going to detail all of the lovely people that you can start a romantic relationship with in CD Projekt Red's open world game.

Needless to say, this guide contains some spoilers for both side quests and main story quests.

Romance Options in Cyberpunk 2077

There are just four main romance options in Cyberpunk 2077. What's more, these four characters have their own physical preferences, meaning that your options are limited depending on which body type (male or female) V has.

All four of these characters first appear either during the main story, or during a major side quest. We'll give you all of the details below.

Judy Alvarez

Cyberpunk 2077 Judy Romance

You can only romance Judy if V has a female body type and feminine voice.

You first meet Judy near the beginning of the game. She's a tech-minded individual who initially seems a little prickly — but her heart's clearly in the right place.

How to Romance Judy

You must follow these steps in order to start a relationship with Judy:

  • During the side job 'Pisces', reject Maiko's plan OR reject Maiko's payment
  • During the side job 'Pyramid Song', choose to go diving with Judy, and then agree to spend the night
  • During the side job 'Pyramid Song', choose to kiss Judy when the opportunity arises
  • During the side job 'Pyramid Song', talk to Judy the next morning and tell her this is the beginning of a relationship

Panam Palmer

Cyberpunk 2077 Panam Romance

You can only romance Panam if V has a male body type.

Panam is a headstrong woman who'll stop at nothing to help those she cares about. She's brash and instinctive, but sometimes that's what you need when your back's against the wall in Night City.

How to Romance Panam

  • During the side job 'Riders on the Storm', flirt with Panam when the opportunity arises
  • During the side job 'With a Little Help from My Friends', do not reveal Panam's plan

River Ward

Cyberpunk 2077 River Romance

  • During the side job 'The Hunt', express your romantic interest in River

Kerry Eurodyne

Cyberpunk 2077 Kerry Romance
