Cyberpunk 2077 is getting a board game courtesy of a Kickstarter marketing campaign. Cyberpunk 2077: Gangs of Night City is a unusual twist on the high-tech, low-life underbelly of the world dropped at life by CD Projekt Red and Mike Pondsmith. The game is being printed by CMON Games, which have put collectively board game diversifications of God of War and Bloodborne along with different current IPs.
If the slang-ridden synopsis of the game supplied on its Kickstarter web page is any indicator, it’s clear that its creators have some severe reverence for the supply materials: “Cyberpunk 2077: Gangs of Night City is a competitive game in which 1 to 4 players take on the role of ruthless gangs vying for control of the underground in the glittering hellhole that is Night City. Clash with other gangs in the meat or on the Net as your enterprising band of toughs seeks to gain dominance over the criminal underworld that rules the streets. Only the boldest will be remembered, and your Street Cred will pave your way to the top.”
The aesthetics and fiction of this game look like extra carefully primarily based on the Cyberpunk 2077 video game printed by CD Projekt Red, versus a riff on the supply materials penned by Mike Pondsmith within the pen-and-paper Cyberpunk RPG. In addition to its trademark crimson and neon-yellow aesthetic, this board game comes packaged with a pile of unpainted plastic miniatures that bear the likeness of notable characters from the video game. Players can anticipate to see Jackie Welles, Johnny Silverhand, and Judy Alvarez among the many two dozen or so plastic minis which are deliberate to ship with the game.
At the time of publishing, the undertaking has greater than tripled its funding aim of $100,000 and is simply shy of its last stretch aim with about 10 days remaining in its marketing campaign. Currently, the one funding stage accessible is set at $110 however nets you entry to the core field and all of the miniatures.
We perceive that a scorching pile of unpainted plastic is powerful to withstand, however it’s price mentioning that the present timeline for transport doesn’t begin till not less than eight months after the top of the Kickstarter. And similar to Cyberpunk’s digital model, there’s no assure that it gained’t be delayed.
