(Link to the music in this video in the description) Who is Johnny Silverhand and how did he turn into a digital entity in 2077? Why are cybernetic implants common in the Cyberpunk future? What are megacorporations? What’s the story of Night City? Today we’re going to explain all the lore in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe starting with the Apocalypse of America: how the crash of worldwide economies, especially in the States, created the futuristic dystopia of Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a technological world, where people need technology to perform the most basic activities of their lives, being the most basic surviving, and the second most basic fighting megacorporations with what you have, which let’s face it, is not much, most people are cybernetically enhanced, they have cyber limbs, cyber eyes, augmented brains, or you can even be a full cyborg. But although cybernetic implants are a tool needed for survival, the excessive addition of plastic and metal to people’s body made way to the most extended and feared mental illness of the 21st Century: the Cyber Psychosis.
The action of the video game takes place is Night City, a dangerous metropolis where the air is polluted, acid rain a constant, drug-pushing gangs, and slingers of illicit braindance run the streets. At the top of the city skyline, megacorporations rule all aspects of life while they laugh at the decadence, crime and extreme poverty that cripples the street level.
Learn the most important events that shaped the Cyberpunk 2077 universe and the most important characters: How the Netwatch was created, who are Alt Cunningham, Johnny Silverhand (portrayed by Keanu Reeves in the video game), Magnificent Curtis, and Rache Bartmoss, what is the role of the corporations Militech and Arasaka and what are the Corporate Wars.
