David Martinez is a kid out of his element and everyone around him knows it. He lives in a rougher than most neighborhood in Night City with his mom. They can barely pay to keep the dryer running, but somehow David is enrolled at the prestigious Arasaka Academy, where all the corpo executive kids go. But when his mom is killed in a crossfire between two Night City street gangs, David’s fragile grasp on life comes undone. He’s on his own now and all he has is a piece of high-tech chrome and a death wish.
CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is a cultural phenomenon. After the disastrous launch that saw the carefully crafted reputation of the beloved Witcher 3: Wild Hunt disintegrate over night, it laid dormant with only dedicated fans willing to put up with the buggy mess. But after a few months of crunch and rapid fire bug fixing, Cyberpunk 2077 has risen from the dead in the form of new patches and Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. Produced by Studio Trigger, this is a blood soaked, chrome plated, neon lit, thrash tuned whirlwind. There is great connectivity to the game with easter eggs sprinkled throughout. Certain episodes are a little formulaic but the series as a whole is a blast to watch.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is available to stream on Netflix.
