About the game
Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person Action RPG based on a table top role-playing game. The setting is a near-future dystopia, where the protagonist V, who is a cyborg like everyone else, makes their way into Night City, a half Los Angeles half Tokyo looking city which is controled by multinational corporations. The game had many bugs even though its launch was delayed many times, but it’s really atmospheric, amazing looking and has a compelling storyline.
