Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife The Card Game

Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t just coming to consoles next year; it’s coming to tabletops as a card game. CMON and CD Projekt RED announced Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife: The Card Game over the weekend as the first collaboration between the two companies, with plans for more to follow. The card game was designed by CMON Director of Game Design Eric M. Lang (Blood Rage, Bloodborne: The Card Game) and will be available in 2020.

The synopsis for the game notes:

In Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife: The Card Game, players become Fixers. Fixers are the databrokers and masterminds in Night City who recruit cyberpunks, equip them with gear, and send them out on missions. But nothing’s free in Night City. Players need to balance between what they want and what they can actually afford. Using an innovative drafting mechanic and special dashboard, players must decide which cards they want to buy, and which to sacrifice for funds in order to purchase new ones.

Each successful mission raises the player’s 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 truly matters.

The card game is based in the same world as CD Projekt Red’s highly-anticipated video game, which is set to release on April 16th, 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Both are based on the legendary tabletop RPG Cyberpunk 2020 by Mike Pondsmith and R. Talsorian Games.

Lang, said of the project, “I’m a huge fan of Cyberpunk and have played it since the first edition. I grew up playing the RPG and have kept up with the franchise through the years. Andrea Chiarvesio and I were beyond thrilled to work on it.”

“We have a big board game community at the studio, and we couldn’t be happier to partner up with CMON. We love their games and are very excited to show the world our shared vision for a great card game in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe,” said Rafał Jaki, Business Development Director at CD Projekt RED.
