Gangs of Night City
Every day, we inch closer and closer to the release of Cyberpunk 2077. It promises to be an absolutely enormous game and judging by the amount of content CD Projekt Red has shown us, it looks like they will deliver on that promise. In the latest trailer, we get a look at the street life of Night City and the Cyberpunk 2077 gangs that players will have to contend with. As over the top as the Saints Row games are, these gangs CDPR have come up with will definitely give the gangs of Saints Row a run for their money.
While some of the gangs are pretty original, there are some that are pretty familiar, and by that I mean stereotypical. There are the Maelstrom, which are teched-out killers and brutal as they come. The Valentinos are Cyberpunk’s Latine gang and probably the most stereotypical with their love of lowriders and Latine imagery. The 6th Street are a gang of urban Americana outcasts, making the second amendment the first, second, third, and only amendment. The Voodoo Boys are a primarily Black gang obsessed with magic, cybernetics, and magic cybernetics. The Animals are roided out brawlers all about heavy weapons and fist fights. The Tiger Claws are the stereotypical Asian gang that love motorcycles, dragon tattoos, and swords. The Moxes are a group that protect the sex worker industry on the streets; one big love-loving family. The Wraiths and the Aldecaldos control most of the Badlands and are decked out in less stylish and more functional gear for their territory.
Whew. That’s a lot of people you are going to have to keep track of and watch out for. Some of them seem more friendly than others, but you will have to deal with them in your own way. Cyberpunk 2077 is coming out on November 19th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
