Easy Mode is the equivalent of going on a nice cruise. This is the perfect choice for players who want to be more immersed in the story and not have to worry so much about combat and other game mechanics.
Normal Mode will let you in on a breezy ride throughout the game. Enemy Battles won't take their toll on you but expect opponents in Boss Battles to be quite formidable.
Hard Mode will tickle your brain just about right. Expect considerable challenge in combat and a demand for wise use of your arsenal.
Very Hard Mode is where you have to take every thing into account—from character development to the use of your items—and take them seriously to make it in Night City. You're going to be in for a serious challenge.
Do not worry about choosing your difficulty setting at the start of a new game, as you can change it whenever you please. To do so, you will need to open up the Pause Menu and go to settings. Once in the settings menu, select the Gameplay Settings tab. The first option in the accessibility options is the difficulty. You can freely choose whatever difficulty you wish to play on, allowing you to adjust whenever you feel like it.

I'd really like to see a flowchart with all the Main Quests, Side Quests, and Gigs that exist so we can easily see what you need to do before unlocking XYZ quest (kind of like they did here https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/cyberpunk-2077-walkthrough-main-story-quest-list-main-missions-order-5077 except with everything, not just the Main ones)
