Designed by Cyberpunk creator Mike Pondsmith, the Cyberpunk Red edition fits into the Cyberpunk timeline between the Cyberpunk 2020 and Cyberpunk 2077 editions, and features streamlined and updated rules (see "Status Updates on ‘Cyberpunk Red’ and ‘The Witcher’ RPGs").
To help players get on board for the new edition, the company is publishing the Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit. This boxed set includes:
A book that describes the world of Cyberpunk Red, with setting background, a ready-to-play scenario, and in-universe "news" stories called "Screamsheets" that players can use to design their own adventures.
A rulebook with the new edition’s essential rules, built on R. Talsorian Games’ Interlock game engine.
A half-dozen pre-generated characters so players can start playing right away.
Four maps of Cyberpunk-style environments, from the hard streets to the nightclub.
Six dice, including two 10-sided dice and four 6-sided dice.
Plus other materials not yet revealed.
The set is intended as an introduction to the game, which will be presented more fully in the Cyberpunk Red core rulebook, releasing later in the year.
The Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit will debut at Gen Con 2019. MSRP has not been announced. A digital version will also be available.
A line of licensed Cyberpunk miniatures is in the works at Monster Fight Club (see "Monster Fight Club to Produce ‘Cyberpunk’ and ‘The Witcher’ Minis").
