Today, CD Projekt Red hosted a livestream to share the latest cyberpunk-related news, including the exciting new anime Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, which will be released on Netflix this month. The series follows David, a young man trying to make his way in a dangerous futuristic utopia known as Night City. It also became known that today Cyberpunk 2077 will receive a new update dedicated to anime.
One day, David loses everything he held dear and receives a unique set of cyber clothes that will change his life. While talking about his journey, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners writer/producer Bartosz Sztybor also confirmed two important things about the upcoming anime. Firstly, the series is 100% canon and you will see weapons, clothes and other important things from the game in it.
What’s more, you’ll also see some famous and beloved characters from the game in the series. While it hasn’t been confirmed exactly who will be on the show yet, it was said in an interview that fans should be on the lookout as characters from Cyberpunk 2077 will indeed appear on the show.
The game will include a mini-game called “Cockroach Race” – an arcade game based on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which will also be available on mobile platforms for free and without microtransactions.
The update includes anime-related content, including a new jacket, new weapons, and more. There is a quest that will introduce you to anime content.
Finally, we will get Wardrobe, which is essentially a transmog feature that allows you to change the appearance of each equipment slot, and ripperdocs will get new abilities that allow you to change the character’s appearance.
Update 1.6 brings new features to the game, including an overhaul of the police system, a new gameplay loop for hand-to-hand combat, changes to cyber equipment, and more.
However, all new features and content after Update 1.6 will only be available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. PS4 and Xbox One will receive only minor technical updates to keep them running, but will fall behind in terms of content.
Along with this news, a new English dub of the uncensored anime trailer was released last week.
