This introduction opens a Special Issue devoted to Cyberpunk 2077 (2020), an open-world, action–adventure roleplaying video game whose release has polarized players and critics alike for a number of reasons ranging from its technically prob-lematic launch to the depth of the in-game world and its politics. The seven contri-butions to the issue illuminate Cyberpunk 2077’s multiple facets, focusing on it as an experience and a text.
