Cyberpunk 2077, Afterlife Is the Official Card Game Just Announced


After speculation, CD Projekt Red confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 won't go the way of The Witcher 3 and include a digital card game.

Eric M. Lang, CMON's Director of Game Design, said of the project, "I'm a huge fan of Cyberpunk and have played it since the first edition". However, Afterlife is being developed in collaboration with CMON, an global publisher of board games, and will actually be a physical card game rather than a digital one.

CD Projekt Red's Rafal Jacki clarified this once and for all on Reddit that Cyberpunk 2077 won't have an in-universe card game, Netrunner or otherwise. Of course, the studio does have experience with card games thanks to their work developing Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. The backing of the video game could have breathed new life and cards into its meta without putting the burden on the community. CD Projekt Red eventually spun it off into its own game, so many rightly assumed the same would be true for Cyberpunk 2077.

Ruth Mottram, a scientist at DMI, said 56.5% of Greenland's ice sheet had melted on Wednesday, which is a record for this year. This is because of high temperatures observed for the past four months from May, according to news website CNN .

In Afterlife, players will take the role of Fixers - databrokers and masterminds of Night City, and your job is to recruit cyberpunks, equip them with gear, and give them missions.

Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification. You need to balance between what you want and what you 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". You'll draft cards to help you complete missions, which then raises your Street Cred until you eventually win the game. I'm sure we'll hear more in the coming months.
