Cyberpunk 2077 art book reveals our first glimpse of the map

Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most, if not the most anticipated game in the last decade, and it's safe to say that CD Projekt Red have been using the hype levels to reveal some neat features and additions to the game, such as Keanu Reeves as the Rockerboy singer Johnny Silverhand for example. Months before the official release, our supposed first look at the map has been released, and while we just get a section of it, it looks like this one is going to be pretty big.

Producer Richard Borzymowski told GamesRadar in August: "If you look at pure surface [in terms of] square kilometers, then Cyberpunk 2077 might even be a little bit smaller than The Witcher 3, but it's the density of the content, taking the world of The Witcher and squeezing it right in, deleting the wilderness between".

"From a creator's perspective, Cyberpunk 2077 is a story about heroes in opposition to the world, and that world itself is one of the heroes as well", says Blacha.

But we never actually saw the map itself.

The map image, which has been enhanced by Resetera, appears to extend beyond the cover of the special edition book, suggesting it could be larger than what is viewable.

We know that Cyberpunk 2077 has six separate districts - Watson, Pacifica, City Center, Westbrook District, Heywood, and Santo Domingo. Learn all there is to know about the technology of tomorrow and research the cybernetics, weapons, and vehicles of Cyberpunk 2077. But, unlike The Witcher 3, which featured a sprawling landmass to explore, CD Projekt RED has created a smaller world for Cyberpunk 2077, instead focusing on areas laid out vertically, with multiple floors of buildings to explore. We've already seen a few of the different locations in behind-closed-doors demos, trailers, and screenshots that CD Projekt RED have released, and they're clearly going to be recognisable. The regular edition of The World of Cyberpunk 2077 is also available for pre-order.
