Fans of the Cyberpunk TTRPG might be getting a glimpse of the game's future. Mike Pondsmith's dark sci-fi TTRPG has been around since the 1980s, but has since garnered mainstream attention by CD Projekt RED's big-budget videogame adaptation Cyberpunk 2077 and the widely acclaimed Netflix anime, Cyberpunk Edgerunners. It even has its share of board game spin-offs in the works. Now, the developers of the latest edition, Cyberpunk Red, have announced the Cyberpunk Edgerunners Mission Kit, where you can experience the world of the anime at your gaming table.

Cyberpunk Edgerunners Mission Kit Announcement

The announcement of the Cyberpunk Edgerunners Mission Kit came from an official post on R. Talsorian Games' website. According to the post, this mission kit is a starter box aimed towards fans of the Cyberpunk Edgerunners anime but with no prior experience with TTRPGs. The box will contain everything new players will need to get started such as the game's core rules, lore about the dystopian dark future, as well as information on characters from Edgerunners such as David Martinez, Dorio, and Lucy.

But Cyberpunk Red veterans should also be interested in the Cyberpunk Edgerunners Mission Kit. The reason for this has to do with what the box also includes and what it means overall for the Cyberpunk timeline. Cyberpunk Red takes place in 2045, specifically in the aftermath of a war that turned Night City into a disaster zone. The rules, world state, and technology level all reflect this. Cyberpunk Edgerunners meanwhile takes place in 2076. This means that the materials in this mission box will include rules and stats for weapons, cyberware, and hacking software for that time period. In a way, this may be R Talsorian Games giving players a sneak peek at new material coming soon for their TTRPG.

At the time of writing the Cyberpunk Edgerunners Mission Kit has only started development. There is currently no information on a release date, pricing, or availability.
