Cyberpunk 2077: Blackout
In a city that operates on technology, a power outage brings catastrophe, but in darkness comes opportunity.
It hurts. Night City hurts. The suffering runs deep and the deeper one falls, the longer the self-prescribed dreams play. Fortune, hope, love—all made possible by DMS technology. A braindance repairman’s daily encounters with his clients reveal the deterioration of the human mind and the desperation driving those to surrender to illusion. But not everyone desires a happy ending. Riddled with doubt, self-hatred, and guilt, he soon discovers the answer to pain . . . comes in a blackout.
Created in close collaboration with CD Projekt Red, embrace humanity and dare to break the cycle of a corrupt city that offers an escape for the price of your dependence. In Night City, you get what you pay for and . . . you get what you give.
Collects Cyberpunk 2077: Blackout #1–#4.
