Cyberpunk 2077 fans can head back to 2045

I think one of the greatest things about Cyberpunk 2077 is that V's story - our story - is just a drop in the ocean that is Night City's history.

The world of Cyberpunk 2077 is truly vast, filled with legends and stories to uncover. CD Projekt RED did its part in making Night City feel like its own character, of course, but it helps that they had decades of lore to draw on from the original Cyberpunk tabletop RPG.

If you're keen to see what life was like in Night City long before V wound up with Johnny Silverhand in their head, you should definitely check out Cyberpunk Red: Combat Zone.

Created and developed by Monster Fight Club, Combat Zone takes place in the year 2045, during the reconstruction of Night City.

"Massive megabuildings light up the skies above the rebounding Corpo Plaza, while cyber-enhanced gangs battle in their shadows, each carving out a bloody piece of ground to call their own," the game's description reads.

"In Cyberpunk Red: Combat Zone, you lead a gang through pitched battles or campaigns. Equip your gang, hire your mercs, and build your street cred to dominate the hellish rubble of the Combat Zone and emerge as the new master of the streets."

Combat Zone is a tabletop RPG in the vein of the classic Cyberpunk adventures, so it might not be a gaming experience like you're used to. It is, however, a ton of fun. Monster Fight Club also recently promised on Kickstarter that "big things" are coming to the game in 2024, making this the perfect time to get involved.

The team wrote in a post: "Exciting times are on the horizon, and we can't wait to share the news with you. This spring and summer, get ready for the second print of Combat Zone hitting the shelves, an abundance of mini packs, and the unveiling of new gang packs! This year is loaded with fantastic surprises."

With Cyberpunk 2077 well and truly wrapped up, maybe now is the time to explore new corners of Night City.
