Manufacturer of tabletop games CMON, the creators of Zombicide: Undead or Alivee and Masters of the Universe: The Board Game – Clash for Eterniahas launched a new Kickstarter campaign for its next project: a tabletop role-playing game set in the CD Projekt Red universe Cyberpunk 2077 and Mike Pondsmith’s dystopian tabletop RPG cyberpunk.
Cyberpunk 2077: Gangs of Night City is a competitive board game in which up to four players take on the role of one of the game’s four street gangs – the Tyger Claws, the Valentinos, the Maelstroms and the Voodoo Boys – as they compete for dominance about the criminal underworld of Night Ville.
To do this, players will be able to hire Edgerunners (i.e. notable characters from Cyberpunk 2077 like Jackie Welles, Johnny Silverhand, and Judy Álvarez) to support their gang units as they secure territory, perform nethacks to secure information, rack up street credibility, and dominate their opponents.
CMON has a long history with crowdfunding, and with Kickstarter in particular. Cyberpunk 2077: Gangs of Night City is the company’s 51st campaign on this platform, and when it’s over, it will have raised over $240,000 from more than 3,000 backers, easily surpassing its crowdfunding goal of $100,000.
The only level of pledge for Cyberpunk 2077: Gangs of Night City is priced at $110, which is essentially the equivalent of pre-ordering the game with Kickstarter-exclusive bonuses in the form of additional Edgerunner figures of characters including V, Emmerick Bronson, and Evelyn Parker. Orders for the game are expected to ship in July 2023.
