CMON Announces Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife: The Card Game

August 3, 2019 - 5:30pm

CMON and CD PROJEKT RED announce Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife: The Card Game. You may recall the splash Cyberpunk 2077 made earlier this year at E3 when it was revealed that Keanu Reeves stars as a non-player character in the Cyberpunk 2077 video game.  This will be the first collaboration between the two companies, with plans for more to follow.

Longtime Cyberpunk RPG fan, Eric M. Lang (Blood Rage, Rising Sun, Arcadia Quest) teams up with Andrea Chiarvesio (Kingsburg, Hyperborea) to design Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife: The Card Game, a game that thrusts players into the dark alleyways of Night City, where ruthless gangs clash with corporations in an endless war for money, power, and control.

In Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife: The Card Game, players become Fixers, the databrokers and masterminds who recruit cyberpunks, equip them with gear, and send them out on missions. The game uses a drafting mechanic and special dashboard to provide players the opportunity to decide whether to spend limited funds to add the card to their team or to sacrifice the card to build capital. Player must balance between what they can afford and what they need to ensure a successful mission. Their Street Cred, the only currency that truly matters, is riding on this. Each successful mission raises the player’s Street Cred and mission survivors become Veterans, imparting their knowledge and experience to newer recruits.

Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife: The Card Game will be released in 2020.
