Suddenly everyone’s a forensic cartographer
All this time, we’ve been gettin’ jazzed for Cyberpunk 2077 without knowing the lay of the land. Sure, it’s all in Night City, but what’s where and who’s why were all complete mysteries. We had more questions than Linda Ellerbee (three of you will get that one).
Now, on the day that Cyberpunk 2077 went gold, we finally have a confirmed glimpse at the map of Night City. It’s not all that detailed, only providing major roads and the general outline of the city. And it’s not all that interesting, as the names of regions don’t do anything to tell us what makes those areas special. But damnit, it’s a map!
If you’ve been paying attention, this confirms the accuracy of a map leak from last December. Dark Horse Comics’ World of Cyberpunk 2077 book cover has a Night City sketch, and in hindsight, it’s good enough! That outline? Pretty much identical! Now we have the first-hand information to make statements like “Watson’s to the north” or “The City Center’s in the center of the city.”
Monday is when the important blogs drop.
