Cyberpunk 2077


Cyberpunk 2077 introduction

After the Witcher 3 Wild Hunt, it is almost cruel CD projekt RED announced there next game: "Cyberpunk 2077", so early.

In case of CD projekt RED, you could even say that "early" is an understatement. 

Already in 2012 they announced the game during the CD Projekt RED Summer Conference.

(the second video was released a couple of weeks later, revealing the title and some..)

They had us hooked!

But when will it be released? The anticipated release date is ... Well It's not going to be tomorrow! (Written in May 2017)

For those who have not seen the videos:

In 2013, the studio made it even harder by posting two other videos: "One video in which Mike Pondsmith, the author of the original cyberpunk 2020 game, explains us what cyberpunk is all about and one teaser trailer, showing us what their next showpiece is going to look like."

For those who have not seen the videos:

What we had heard and seen was amazing! A good reason for us to do all the preparatory work necessary, to assist you and keep you informed as much as possible, so you do not have to waste a second when the game is finally arrived.

 What is Cyberpunk 2020?

As you will probably know by now, is Cyberpunk 2077 based upon a tabletop game called Cyberpunk 2020. Before CD projekt RED announced that: "they where going to base a video game upon it," I (and I guess a lot of you) had never heard of a game named: "Cyberpunk". So I went on a mission, took my leather armor jacket, polished my mirrorshades and got into my Dolorean, for a little trip back into the future!

It didn't take me long to get there and it definitely didn't take me long to realize, that I was not going to find enough people, within my circle of friends,  to play a 25 year old cybernetic role playing game. So I got back into the Dolorean and searched the dark corners of the net where I found a YouTube channel called: "TabletopTalk", dedicated to role playing games, who have more than 50 videos playing Cyberpunk 2020.

I have posted the first two below should you be interested: (it is quite amusing to watch)

 The essence of being a Cyberpunk

After viewing the video(s) above, I guess you have a basic idea of what a Cyberpunk 2020 game looks like. Of course it's all about the upcoming 2077 (video) game but the 2020 version is all we've got for now, ( May 2017 ) (you can always register for updates) and I promised to get you up to speed before the game comes out.

So without further ado, what is living in Night City and being a Cyberpunk character exactly about?! Well, let me quote some frases of the original rule book:

 

"Cyberpunk characters are survivors in a tough, grim world, faced with life and death choices. How they make these choices will have a lot to do with whether they end up as vicious animals roaming a ruined world, or retain something of their basic humanity. Cyberpunk characters are the heroes of a bad situation, working to make it better (or at least survivable) whenever they can. Whether it takes committing crimes, defying authority or even outright revolution, the quintessential Cyberpunk character is a rebel with a cause. As a Cyberpunk role-player, it's up to you to find that cause and go to the wall with it."

"This is the essence of Cyberpunk: "Playing your character with the proper disaffected, cynical-yet-idealistic style. Whether you're a biker with leathered skin and metal claws, or a debutante in satin sporting the latest in designer cyberoptics, you're going to need a certain panache, a certain flair, in portraying yourself. To achieve the essence of the 2000's, you need to master three concepts:"

 The 3 Rules

The Rules to follow (or break) in Night City! Bellow the rules as stated in the Cyberpunk 2020 rulebook:

( and probably, the basic "rules" for the video-game)

♦ Rule one: Style over Substance

"It doesn't matter how well you do something, as long as you look good doing it. If you're going to blow it, make sure you look like you planned it that way. Normally clothes and looks don't matter in an adventure --- In this world, having a leather armor jacket and mirrorshades is a serious consideration."

♦ Rule two: Attitude is everything

"It's truth. Think dangerous; be dangerous. Think weak; be weak. Remeber, everyone in the 2000's is carrying lots of lethal hardware and high-tech enhancements. They won't be impressed by your new H&K smartgun unless your swagger into the club looking like you know how to use it --- and are just itching for an excuse.

Never walk into a room when you can stride in. Never look at someone unless you can make it your best "killer" look. Use your best "I'm bad and you aren't." smile. Don't sit around the flat or cube waiting for the next job. Get on out and hit the clubs and hangouts. make sure you're where the party starts."

♦ Rule three: Always take it to the Edge.

"The Edge is that nebulous zone where risk takers and highriders go. On the Edge, you'll risk your cash, your rep, even your life on something as vague as a principle or a bige score. As a cyberpunk, you want to be the action, start the rebellion, light the fire. Join great causes and fight for big issues. Never drive slow when you can drive fast. Throw yourself up against danger and take it head on. Never play it too safe. Stay committed to the Edge."

For those who haven't played the tabletop game: Night City's Psychosquad (MAX-TAC) is a special police unit that responds to situations involving cyborgs that go crazy (cyberpsychosis). They often "recruit" from the pool of cyborgs that go crazy, by reprogramming them to serve in the Psychosquad and save people to pay for their former crimes. That's what you're seeing in the trailer. It's playback of how a female MAX-TAC officer became part of the squad.

"Memories. You're talking about memories."
