Cyberpunk: Edgerunners NSFW trailer

The series will be set in the same world as Cyberpunk 2077 game, but feature a new story and a new cast of characters. The trailer opens with the main characters David Martinez and Lucy discussing David's mother and his wishes for the future. Shortly afterward, it devolves into a rapid-fire series of gunfights, explosions, and sexual imagery.

It’s significantly more violent than the game ever gets. Besides some brief nudity, but also a whole lot of over-the-top violence and outright gore. Think more along the lines of Doom Eternal than Cyberpunk 2077.

As a drink of his name exists in the Afterlife, it is suggested that David would have died as a legendary edgerunner before the events of Cyberpunk 2077.



Lucy is a mysterious Netrunner from Night City. She is quite introverted and doesn't like to talk much about her past. Despite her innocent appearance, she won't hesitate to take a life in a heartbeat if she gets really angry. Lucy considers Night City a prison, and dreams of one day leaving it for the Moon.
