CD Projeckt have a lot of Cyberpunk 2077 projects on the go, there’s the main game, the World of Cyberpunk 2077 lore book, some sort of multiplayer component and maybe even a second game. Add to that list a card game created in collaboration with an international board game publisher CMON!
Here’s the official word:
Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife: The Card Game thrusts players into the dark alleyways of Night City, where ruthless gangs clash with corporations in an endless war for money, power, and control.
In the game, you become Fixers — databrokers and masterminds of Night City. Your job is to recruit cyberpunks, equip them with gear, and send them out on missions. Each successful mission raises your Street Cred, with mission survivors becoming Veterans, imparting their knowledge and experience to newer recruits. In this chrome-infused world, Street Cred is the only currency that matters.
And nothing comes cheap in Night City. You need to balance between what you want and what you can actually afford. Using an innovative drafting mechanic and special dashboard, you must decide which cards you want to buy, and which to sacrifice for funds in order to purchase new ones.
Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife: The Card Game will be released in 2020 for tables, desks, picnic blankets, and other compatible flat surfaces.
As mentioned earlier there’s also The World of Cyberpunk 2077 book that will launch on April 21st, 2020, several days after Cyberpunk 2077’s release date of April 16th.
Step into the year 2077, a world dotted with dystopian metropoles where violence, oppression, and cyberware implants aren’t just common–they’re necessary tools to get ahead. Delve into incisive lore to discover how the economic decline of the United States created a crippling dependence on devious corporations and birthed the Free State of California. Explore the various districts, gangs, and history of Night City. Learn all there is to know about the technology of tomorrow and research the cybernetics, weapons, and vehicles of Cyberpunk 2077.
The World of Cyberpunk 2077 is priced at $39.99 and isn’t the first collaboration between CD Projekt Red and Dark Horse. There have been multiple comic books runs based on the Polish studio’s monster hunting epic, The Witcher.
Dark Horse is no stranger when it comes to bulky books probing into the worlds of our favourite video games, some of our favourites including its deep dives on Naughty Dog as well as the Mass Effect series.
