CD Projekt Red is pulling out all the stops for Cyberpunk 2077. While the game itself doesn’t come out until spring 2020, the company isn’t keeping itself just to a single game. In a surprise announcement yesterday, CDPR revealed Afterlife: The Card Game, a themed TCG based on the Cyberpunk 2077 IP.
Afterlife is a physical card game that is considered a “standalone” title. It’s being developed by CDPR in collaboration with CMON, a board game publisher. There are a few details revealed, most notably that the game will be available at retailers in 2020, though nothing more specific than that.
We’ll be sure to keep you posted as more is revealed.
Cyberpunk 2077 – Afterlife: The Card Game 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 the game, you become Fixers — databrokers and masterminds of Night City. Your job is to recruit cyberpunks, equip them with gear, and send them out on missions. Each successful mission raises your Street Cred, with mission survivors becoming Veterans, imparting their knowledge and experience to newer recruits. In this chrome-infused world, Street Cred is the only currency that matters.
And nothing comes cheap in Night City. You need to balance between what you want and what you can actually afford. Using an innovative drafting mechanic and special dashboard, you must decide which cards you want to buy, and which to sacrifice for funds in order to purchase new ones.
