Cyberpunk 2020: Night City

Second Run: To Be Announced

Jackalope Live Action Studios is proud to announce a new partnership with R. Talsorian Games to create official licensed blockbuster live action events based in the Cyberpunk 2020 universe. Focusing on recreating an immersive dark cyberpunk future, these events will have hundreds of participants participating in the high-tech low-life world of the iconic Cyberpunk RPG line, and will be the first officially license LARP events for the setting.

Walk through the streets of Night City, the dystopian megapolis of the dark future. Get involved in shady underworld dealings and corporate betrayals. Investigate and invade computer systems. Sell out and gain fame as a vidcaster. Up your street cred as a gang member or pirate broadcaster. Or just survive, find safety and build a life, in a city where you cannot save the world, but you might be able to save what you love.

Cyberpunk: Night City will focus on an immersive event with multiple venues of interaction – from running missions full of puzzles and combat; to living out the lives of the people surviving in the world of cyberpunk; to underworld dealings for big money; to pulling influence as a fixer working the angles.

Whatever your style of play, Cyberpunk: Night City will have a place for you.

“Cyberpunk 2020 has been around a long time but up to now, we’ve never had a major LARP event for it,” said Mike Pondsmith, creator of Cyberpunk 2020, “We’re looking forward to seeing Cyberpunk in a whole new dimension–reality!”

“We’re extremely excited to deal with such an iconic setting, and to work with R. Talsorian in bringing this world to live. We have been fans of the RPG and the genre since we were kids, and the vision of Cyberpunk 2020 is so spot-on. The richness of the setting, the perfect tone, and just the sheer artistry of the execution. It’s an honor to bring this world into real life, at a time when the world is discovering the cyberpunk genre again in a big way,” said Matthew Webb, Creative Partner at Jackalope Live Action Studios, “We plan on bringing in not only our awesome writing and creative expertise, but also our experience with augmented reality and technology-enhanced LARP to make this a truly unique experience.”

Jackalope Live Action Studios has signed a multi-year licensing deal for the setting, and will be running immersive live action events for Cyberpunk 2020, starting in 2019 and beyond.
