This, the second edition of Cyberpunk from R. Talsorian Games, was released in 1990, moving the timeline of the original Cyberpunk: The Roleplaying Game of the Dark Future forwards by seven years to 2020 with an emphasis on 'street-level' adventure. It also rewrote game history to accommodate the reunification of Germany.
The Corporations control the world from their skyscraper fortresses, enforcing their rule with armies of cyborg assassins. On the Street, Boostergangs roam a shattered urban wilderness, killing and looting. The rest of the world is a perpetual party, as fashion-model beautiful techies rub biosculpt jobs with battle armored roadwarriors in the hottest clubs, sleaziest bars and meanest streets this side of the Postholocaust. The Future never looked so bad.
But you can change it. You've got interface plugs in your wrists, weapons in your arms, lasers in your eyes, bio-chip programs screaming in your brain. You're wired in, cyberenhanced and solid state as you can take it to the fatal Edge where only the toughest and coolest can go. Because you're CYBERPUNK.
Cyberpunk: the original roleplaying game of the dark future; a world of corporate assassins, heavy-metal heroes and brain burning cyberhackers, packed with cutting edge technology and intense urban action. Within this game, you'll find everything you need to tackle the mean streets of the 2000s - in a game system that combines the best in realistic action and playability.
