CD Projekt Red has teamed up with Dark Horse Books to create a brand new lore book for Cyberpunk 2077. Titled The World of Cyberpunk 2077, this 200-page hardcover book will explore the lore of Cyberpunk 2077, including the history of Night City and its technologically advanced society.
The World of Cyberpunk 2077 will release April 20, 2020, just days after the launch of the game Cyberpunk 2077. The lore book is now available for pre-order on Amazon for $39.99. There is also a Kindle version for $19.99.
Based on the book’s description, The World of Cyberpunk 2077 will help put the game’s story and setting into perspective. Here’s what the description says.
“Step into the year 2077, a world dotted with dystopian metropoles where violence, oppression, and cyberware implants aren’t just common–they’re necessary tools to get ahead. Delve into incisive lore to discover how the economic decline of the United States created a crippling dependence on devious corporations and birthed the Free State of California. Explore the various districts, gangs, and history of Night City. Learn all there is to know about the technology of tomorrow and research the cybernetics, weapons, and vehicles of Cyberpunk 2077.”
If you’re excited for Cyberpunk 2077 but haven’t kept up to date on the game’s backstory, the official lore book will help bring you up to speed. The only problem is, the lore book won’t be available until a few days after the game’s launch. Cyberpunk 2077 will release on April 16, 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The official lore book will arrive just a few days later. Until then, stay tuned for more details on Cyberpunk 2077!
