Delve into the world of Cyberpunk.
If you can’t wait for Cyberpunk 2077 to arrive next year, then there’s good news. The highly-anticipated CD Projekt Red game will be receiving an official prequel in the form of a tabletop game. Cyberpunk Red will essentially be a new and updated edition of the original tabletop RPG on which Cyberpunk 2077 is adapted from.
The Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit will be a starter or introductory kit of sorts for new players, as it will contain the game’s rules, world lore, pre-generated characters, an adventure, Screamsheets, dice, and more. Publisher R. Talsorian Games has unveiled the Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit’s official box art, which you can check out below.
According to the Cyberpunk Red FAQ, the upcoming tabletop RPG will “show the Cyberpunk world in a period of rebuilding following the 4th Corporate War”, as well as “help show how society moved from that world-shattering event to what’s presented in the video game”.
The Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit will go on sale at the upcoming Gen Con in the U.S. on 1 August 2019, but the full version will be released at a later unspecified date. It will be priced at $29.99. On the same day, the digital version will also be made available on DriveThruRPG, while the physical edition will go on sale later on the official online store.
Cyberpunk 2077 is slated to launch for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on 16 April 2077. In the meantime, head on over here for more details on Cyberpunk 2077 Collector’s Edition, or check out the 10 details we learned from the Cyberpunk 2077 E3 2019 demo here.
