To stay alive, he chooses to become an edgerunner – a mercenary outlaw not to be confused with netrunners. The Edgerunners race solo and bypass what’s legal in Night City – taking on all the riskiest and most dangerous missions in the world.
The first one trailer shows us a version of Night City that we have not been able to see in the game. The different extracts present a world full of action and adrenaline.
