Cyberpunk 2077 Board Game Promises Big Dose of Adrenaline. Check out Official Teaser

Polish company Go On Board and studio CD Projekt RED are preparing a board game adaptation of Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077 will receive a board game from Polish creators. The Poznan company Go On Board has once again partnered with CD Projekt RED studio (previously they created a Witcher board game; they are also working on a card game). The outcome is a crowdfunding campaign on GoFund to finance the project.

The idea for the project appeared before the release of Cyberpunk 2077. Several team members were already familiar with Night City through the "pen-and-paper" role-playing game Cyberpunk 2020, which served as the foundation for the game of the CD Projekt RED team.

When attempting to transfer the video game (which incidentally is based on a "paper" game) to the "tables," the creators made three assumptions necessary to preserve the most important elements of Cyberpunk 2077.

  1. Exploring Night City - players will be able to visit the famous districts of the city, where they will find various jobs.
  2. Building reputation - as players complete gigs and acquire new implants (and, of course, make efforts to get under the skin of the Arasaka corporation), they will gradually strive to become a legend of Night City.
  3. Combat and missions - no matter if the players favor stealth or aggressive approaches - they will eventually come under attack.

Failing to keep to the time limit during a mission, whether playing solo or in a team of up to 4 players, will result in failure if any character dies. So it will be necessary to keep moving and help each other. A single session should last about 75 minutes.

That's the theory, excluding details about bonuses for project observers. We still have to wait for specifics - at the moment there is not even a completed FAQ section.
