‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Art Book Reveals Details Of The Game’s Map
We're still scrabbling around for any new details of Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher series developer CD Projekt Red's upcoming sci-fi dystopian game. While we've known for a while that it will take place in a smaller, denser world than The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, CDPR hasn't shown off the game's map beyond a glimpse of a tube network in one of the game's early trailers.
Well, now we've got our first sense of how the world is laid out from the cover of the Cyberpunk 2077 art book that's gone up for pre-order on Amazon.
We can't make out much from the map - it's certainly not something we're going to be using to navigate the city and its surrounding areas - but it's our first proper glimpse of the world we're looking forward to playing in, come April 2020. And, it's worth keeping in mind that the top of the map looks cropped out, so there may be more we're not seeing.
The art book is a collection of concept art, images, and lore that introduces you to the world of Cyberpunk. It comes with a set of postcards showing off vehicles, a Johnny Silverhand poster, and, most importantly, a slipcase map of Night City, the metropolis where the game is set.
We know that Cyberpunk 2077 has six separate districts - Watson, Pacifica, City Center, Westbrook District, Heywood, and Santo Domingo. They can be travelled between by subway train, in the back of a taxi, or in your car. But, unlike The Witcher 3, which featured a sprawling landmass to explore, CD Projekt RED has created a smaller world for Cyberpunk 2077, instead focusing on areas laid out vertically, with multiple floors of buildings to explore. It makes for a much denser space to play in.
Plus, every district of Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be distinct from the next. We've already seen a few of the different locations in behind-closed-doors demos, trailers, and screenshots that CD Projekt RED have released, and they're clearly going to be recognisable.
Are you looking forward to playing Cyberpunk 2077 next year? We'll be bringing you all the information (that matters) that we can get our hands on, between now and release.
