Cyberpunk 2077's Prequel Revealed, And It's Not A Video Game
Cyberpunk 2077's April 16 release date is one of the biggest dates in many gamers' calendars, but for those eager for anything Cyberpunk, there's a new version of the game's tabletop prequel coming soon.
Cyberpunk 2077 is now a wholly original concept. The series started as a tabletop RPG called Cyberpunk 2020, and that game is getting a new edition named Cyberpunk Red, whose Jumpstart Kit launches on August 1. A full version of Cyberpunk Red will launch at a later date, according to Polygon.
The series' creator, Mike Pondsmith, has been working on simplifying and consolidating the Cyberpunk lore. Given the video game doesn't launch until next year, Red will be the first opportunity for fans to get their hands on the updated Cyberpunk universe. As well as an updated lorebook, the starter set includes a set of custom dice, six customizable characters, four physical maps, and a new adventure scenario.

If you're particularly excited for the game, you can now grab a free Cyberpunk 2077 PS4 theme.
