If you're looking forward to the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 then you'll want to know about one of the franchise's biggest players, the megacorp Arasaka. The Japanese corporation has played a pivotal part in some of the most important stories in the world of Cyberpunk, and CD Projekt Red's game is no exception. In fact the game is looking like it's going to tackle a few characters and plotlines the pen-and-paper game has been building for decades.

In this video you'll learn everything you need to know about Arasaka.
