Cyberpunk 2077 Lore Night City Living Legends Fights


Up to the year 2000, sports, and the athletes
involved were identical to what you are familiar with today. Then came the collapse. As far
as the USA was concerned, professional sports simply stopped being relevant. As people changed,
so did their taste in sport. Increasingly, violent pastimes became the American obsession.
After the martial government managed to re-establish order, they concluded that there was a need
to entertain the populace, and thus the concept of professional athletes using cyberware came
to fruition. The professional sports industry of Cyberpunk
needed to be truly brutal, and truly cathartic for a population of almost five billion humans.
It had to be different on a massive scale. International Soccer was the only sport followed
globally, but since nationalism was dead in the greater sense, the corporations took over
sponsorship of games. Teams like the Arasaka Sakuras, Militech Rangers, Night City Death
Dealers and the OrbAir Flyers not only generated valuable public relations, they made serious
money as well. There are no stars on these teams as most players don’t survive long
enough to get a following. Advances in medical technology have reduced most deaths to mere
maiming, but with enough irreparable brain damage over time, there are rumours that some
players are brain-dead, living on chipped routines that keep them moving and playing
under AI control. The players, however, remain expendable. As
far as the players are concerned, cyberware is the main rule. Only full-conversion cyborgs
and linear frames are disallowed. The full-body armour used is often adorned with spikes,
and not just for show either. Fatalities are a must for big ratings in 2077, and these
men, and women are eager to please. All this cyberware is usually quick change. Constant
use would cause a much greater percentage of cyberpsychosis than is already present,
and that is no small amount. Contrary to what one might think, this version
of football is not all about violence and cyberware. It’s a game heavily dependent
upon finesse and style. This is because if a player does get hit, the impact can be rather
messy if not fatal, so most do whatever possible to avoid that outcome.
While football is the most violent sanctioned sport, it is by no means the only violent
sport, and may be considered tame compared to some of the gang sports of 2077. Even the
gangs reached the conclusion, that when dealing with the police and corporations, killing
each other may not necessarily be the best strategy. This supposedly enlightened thinking,
has created several new sports, albeit they are somewhat disorganized in comparison to
their professional counterparts. There are usually no referees, and rarely any organized
teams. On the rare occasion there is a referee, they are usually armed with assault rifles.
The distinction in violence is very clear. The idea is to temporarily incapacitate the
other team. Open killing is forbidden, intentional maiming is an even greater taboo. Another
sport, Razorball, is played by gangs residing in the Night City combat zone within an abandoned
ice-skating ring, but details of what it involves remains elusive.
The closest thing to a nationwide big-money death sport is the North American finals of
the World Kumite Tournament. Despite attempts to keep combat drugs and cyberware to a minimum,
killings in the ring are not uncommon. This does not mean that there are no true
death sports. Some areas of the world sponsor prison inmate gladiatorial contests and MMA.
Some of these sports involve condemned people who must win to survive. These sports are
still technically illegal in America, but that has never stopped the market from supplying
demand. In Cyberpunk 2077, V will also be able to
participate in some form of combat sport. Details are currently vague, but promotional
material has shown that Heavyweight championship fights will take place involving members from
the Animals Gang at various locations, including the Zoo Arena, and the Night City Seaside
Resort Cassino, with tickets available from the Blood Box office.

  3. I'm going way off this videos topic, but it was something I am curious about, so I have to ask. It's been said that one of the themes in this game is sexual objectification, and that due to body modification in society, people no longer care about it anymore. From the various character create screens I have seen during character creation, and others, it seems outfits are broken down into sections shirt, jacket, pants and shoes. I wonder if we will be able to take that all off and be naked like in the saints row games, minus the pixelation since fully nudity has been confirmed. let's face it, ignoring the fanservice nature of it, it would be pretty damn creepy if a nude man or woman gets out of a car, inhales some drugs and then just starts mowing people down. If this ends up being just one of many freedoms suggested in this game, then this girl is definately down for a nude, drugged up shooting spree in Night City.

  4. any side activity is good and sports in night city sound like a good opportunity for assassination without risks but with a lot of glory

  5. Reminds me of the motorball sport in Alita. Thanks to the movie, there is an example of what a handball version is like.

  7. What we gamers need more of are titles that gives you the option of choosing to play either as the hero who gets to save the day, or as a villain who gets to steal, maim, or blow shit up, or somewhere in between. I’m hoping that Cyberpunk 2077 gives you that option.

  8. the thing about no holds bars fighting is it tends to bring in a lot of folks who fight one of two ways at the start people with natural talent but do not know what to do when that fails them or people who have studied for years and do not break out of that form of fighting both cases in the long run fail the other one that happens is you will have people where they are use to a fight with rules but think they know how to fight with out them and end up just getting totally rofl stomped because they have been trained to follow them for so long your strikes and ground game need to be on point
