We’re just a few short months away from CD Projekt RED’s next big game, Cyberpunk 2077, and while many of us can’t wait to don that delicious neon aesthetic as Vi, one Minecraft player decided to air out their excitement in a uniquely creative way. That’s right, Cyberpunk 2077 just invaded Minecraft and it is beyond epic.
While I can’t even make a concrete block hardly, other Minecraft players are going all-in with so many amazing creations. One of which pays homage to Cyberpunk 2077 with the Cyberpunk Project. The best part? You’ll be able to take to the streets of Night City within Minecraft yourself on December 25th!
“For most, despite pervasive violence and poverty, leaving Night City is not an option,” said CD Projekt RED about Night City earlier this year over on their blog. “Everyone is a lone wanderer in their own right and Night City presents an undying hope for fame and success where failure is the ultimate fear. Self-preservation and self-promotion—not money—are the driving forces behind societal advancement. In order to be someone, you have to be more than yourself. To become immortal, you have to become a brand, an ideal.”
The in-game society players will see is riddled with crime as they assume the role of V and make a name for themselves. But to scale the ranks in Night City, one must first become intimately familiar with the gang infrastructure. Luckily, the dev team has us all covered:
“Night City has seen its share of gang warfare over the years. Night City gangs vary by structure, hierarchies, and backgrounds. Organized crime in this town is driven primarily by violence. There’s an ever-present need to prove oneself. Self-actualization through violence is a philosophy followed by many in society. At the bottom, physical brutality settles most disputes. At the top, corporations do whatever’s necessary to maintain both hard and soft power. Here, fear is king.”
Overall, the world of Cyberpunk 2077 seems to be a wild one and the adventures players will go through look to be incredible. Can’t wait until next year’s release?
