The Cyberpunk 2077 prequel and 2022 sequel Cyberpunk RED never did get a free to download quickstart.
Before the tabletop RPG’s launch, it got a Jumpstart kit, which is 120 pages long, an adamantine bestseller and $7.00 in PDF.
Now, after all this time, there’s a 48-page Easy Mode that’s entirely free
What’s in easy mode?
- Night City’s history and Cyberpunk’s geography are explored.
- The game’s basic rules are organised to help you learn and start playing.
- You can play a charismatic Rockerboy, dangerous Solo, creative Tech, lifesaving Medtech, and hard-hitting Media.
- A new introductory mission called “Getting Paid” – Because that Eurobucks suitcase is the difference between paying rent and living on the street in Time of the Red.
With Cyberpunk 2022 creator Mike Pondsmith on the credits, along with Cody Pondsmith, J Gray and David Ackerman, the core team is involved, although we don’t know who helped determine which pages from the core rules made the cut.
Welcome to the Time of the Red, Choomba! The Megacorporations spent decades wrecking everything and in the aftermath of their last War, everyone has to fend for themselves.
Publisher R. Talsorian Games have been busily supporting the cyberpunk action since its launch. There’s been frequent DLC/ free content to add, such as new cyberdecks, secret weapons and even dating rules for Valentine’s Day.
