Edgerunners gets its own game

What comes around certainly goes around. Cyberpunk 2077 brought us the critical darling Cyberpunk: Edgerunners this year, and now the anime is ready to give something back. After all, the show is about to get its own game, and fans of the Edgerunners universe will want to check it out ASAP.

If you didn’t already know, R. Talsorian Games made the big announcement earlier today. Cyberpunk is getting a tabletop RPG about the Edgerunners universe. Called Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Mission Kit, the game promises to shed new light on the anime’s edgy heroes.

What we know so far

According to the game development, the board game will use the exact same setting as Edgerunners. The RPG will run on the fourth edition of R. Talsorian’s Cyberpunk base game, but this new title will also be playable without that original game. The Edgerunners game has a starter box complete with game rules and background information from the anime’s production staff.

Currently, the game is in development, so Edgerunners is a way out of its board game debut. R. Talsorian says it will update fans about a release window at a later date. And of course, gamers can catch up with the real Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime on Netflix with ease. The 10-episode series launched this fall to rave reviews, and you can read the official recap below:

The series tells a 10-episode self-contained story about a street kid who tries to survive in Night City – a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future. He has everything to lose and stays alive by becoming an edgerunner – a mercenary also known as cyberpunk.”
