The best hidden details in Night City.

Almost two months after its arrival, Cyberpunk 2077 has made an impression for all the wrong reasons. Despite strengths in its story and core gunplay, the game has been lambasted for its disastrous launch and broken features.

While some enjoyment can be gleaned from specific components, the overarching project has stood as a tremendous letdown. Considering the sheer amount of hype and promises that manifested over seven years, Cyberpunk could never live up to the ludicrous level of expectations.

Be that as it may, those who pushed on and explored all of Night City ended up stumbling across some hidden details across its vast open-world map. Large settings have often included these secrets to add to the exploration. They can take the form of side quest stories, items in the game world or more direct representations of iconic sci-fi moments.

With CD Projekt Red being major fans of many a property, it was only natural that Night City featured some secret references to other major properties. From sci-fi classics to older video game releases, these are the ten easter eggs that await the player.

10. The Office

Kicking off the list is a reference to the classic US show "The Office". This satirical take on blue collar work across America really struck a chord with audiences, so much so that it lasted nine seasons from 2005 all the way to 2013. To many, it embodied the mundane life of the office and found its way into Cyberpunk 2077 years later.

This easter egg was first discovered by Reddit User u/Racketygecko and can be found relatively early on in the game. For the quest "Big In Japan", V heads down to the docks to collect a particular package. It turns out that this package is a person and you'll need to keep him alive and bring him over to the quest-giver.

Rescuing this Japanese doctor on the run from the Night City gangs will prompt a story between Dennis and Hidetoshi. Their conversation unfolds similarly to a conflict in the TV show. Specifically, the episode "Happy Hour" in season 6 is referenced as Hidetoshi describes how he accidentally murdered a Tyger Claws gang leader in surgery and fled to Night City to escape.

Small as it may be, this secret reference was well recognised by many a fan of the widely enjoyed TV show.
