While Cyberpunk: 2077 may have launched, the game has been consistently improved through free updates and game patches. The introduction of the real estate system now allows you to move around and live in different districts around the city, as long as you have enough vortexes.
Specifically, on top of the starter housing, there are four new locations you can choose to move to, each offering a different aesthetic, location, and general atmosphere. If you’re wondering which apartment best suits your playstyle, check out the list below.
5 Apartment on the north side
It may come as a surprise that starting housing isn’t the worst option, but as it turns out, many places in Night City are less than palatable to live in. Take the Northside apartment for example, which effectively costs you 5000 vortices more than the starting apartment, while providing less space and dirtier furniture.
The Northside Apartment is located in the industrial district towards the north of the map, which means that you will still be located in Wattson, but you will not be at the center of most of the tasks in the game. Fortunately, just like any other apartment in Night City, you’ll still have access to essential pieces of furniture, such as a wardrobe and weapon storage. These will allow you to fully customize your outfit and store unwanted weapons in a safe place.
While this apartment is the epitome of grungy, it can still work if you’re playing as a character from the outskirts of Night City or just want to live in a seedy loft. Unfortunately, the price of this apartment means you’ll be paying for a lower-end space, so really only move here if you have a specific life path or story planned.
4 V’s apartment
While this apartment may have some drawbacks, you certainly won’t beat the price. V’s apartment is automatically unlocked during the game’s tutorial, which means you can access this space completely free of charge. Because this location is unlocked so early in the game, the apartment isn’t exactly massive, but it still provides the essential bathroom, wardrobe, storage, computer and bedroom. In addition, this location also has a very nice view – just remember to open the shades whenever you are in the apartment.
In fact, you can buy a 10,000 eddie customization pack for V’s apartment that changes the way the interior is decorated. There are six different options, each changing the materials used throughout the apartment, while keeping the floor plan completely unchanged. In general, these are some expensive options that only really change the color palette of the apartment.
Finally, even though this apartment is free, getting into it can be quite difficult. Specifically, you’ll have to walk up several flights of stairs, take an elevator, and go through crowded hallways just to get to your apartment, so you might find yourself avoiding this destination at all costs.
3 Apartment Corpo Plaza
Located in the extravagant heart of Night City, the Corpo Plaza Apartment boasts the same brutalist and contemporary aesthetic found throughout the corporate lifestyle. Specifically, this apartment lacks any of V’s personal touches and instead looks more like something out of Night City Architectural magazine. Instead of any vibrant colors or personal items, the entire space is devoid of emotion and has simple, hyper-modern furnishings.
Additionally, this apartment is the most expensive housing option in the game, costing you 55,000 vortices. For such a large amount of money, you would think that this apartment would boast better views and amenities, but there is just a complete lack of personality throughout the place. However, if you are playing as someone who is passionate about the corporate lifestyle, then this apartment will fit your character’s story perfectly.
2 Japantown Apartment
For just the small price of 15,000 vortices, you can move into a large apartment in the heart of Japantown. As this space is located on the eastern side of Night City, the apartment itself is decorated with a Japanese aesthetic, providing beautiful pieces of traditional furniture that perfectly match modern technologies. In addition, there are many different interactive items in this apartment, such as cigarettes, incense, blinds and a guitar.
As always, this apartment is equipped with essential pieces of furniture, such as a bedroom, a mirror and a chest to store all unwanted items. Overall, while it may not be the biggest apartment in the game, there are no other living spaces more comfortable than this Japantown abode. That being said, if you decide to move here, be sure to arm yourself before you buy an apartment, as it’s in an unfavorable area, and you might end up with a cyperpsych attack before you can rest at home.
1 Apartment Glen
Glen’s apartment is perhaps the most unique building in the entire game, combining both elegant and dystopian aesthetics to create one stunning piece of architecture. While you’re out and about, you may notice that there is a large population of homeless civilians and plenty of dangerous crimes and activities to take part in. However, the interior of the building is the complete opposite of the exterior, as it has a safe and calming modern aesthetic.
Additionally, the building itself is actually an old brick warehouse that has been converted into apartments, complete with a stark metal frame that wraps around the building like a cage. When you enter the real apartment, you will be amazed to find that it is not even the most expensive apartment in the game. At just 40,000 spins, you’ll unlock stunning city views and a wide-open industrial space that caters to your every need. The location of this apartment is also incredibly ideal, as it sits right below the center of the entire map, meaning you’ll have the same travel distance wherever you decide to go.
Finally, unlike some other apartments, you don’t have to spend a lot of time traveling to your apartment, which means you can stop quickly whenever you want.
