The game is set in the future in 2077. America is one of the least developed nations that haven’t been destroyed by war or natural disasters, but things aren’t that good even for the US. The city you will play in is called Night City and it resembles a combination of a future Los Angeles and Hong Kong. It is placed somewhere on the West Coast, in California. The city consists of six different districts that are inhabited by people from all walks of life. You can see people struggling to survive in one neighborhood, while people on the other side of town live in luxury. Night City is ridden with crime and poverty and rich corporations which run everything.
