If You’ve Got Cyberpunk 2077, You Have Tabletop Cyberpunk For Free – Here’s How To Claim It

Did you that if you own a copy of Cyberpunk 2077, you can also claim a copy of the Cyberpunk 2020 tabletop RPG? It’s one of the many rewards you can get if you connect your version of Cyberpunk 2077 to a GOG account. It’s not the most advertised or intuitive bonus to claim, however, so we’ll walk you through the process.

What Is Cyberpunk 2020?

Cyberpunk 2077 is actually part of a series created by Mike Pondsmith. Its timeline is like our own, except that it splits off in 1990 to become the world of corps and body-altering tech seen in CDPR’s video game. The first entry was a TTRPG released in 1988 but taking place in 2013. Pondsmith cited Blade Runner, Hardwired, and other sci-fi novels, movies, and anime as his inspiration.

The second edition released in 1990, called Cyberpunk 2020. The 2020 sourcebook is what you get for free with Cyberpunk 2077. The Cyberpunk TTRPG actually has a more current edition called Cyberpunk Red, but 2020 is considered a seminal entry. It also happens to take place during Johnny Silverhand’s heyday, giving you free reign to put Keanu in your tabletop adventures and blow up Arasaka yourself.

Connecting Your GOG Account To Cyberpunk 2077

No matter which platform you’re playing on, you need a GOG account to claim rewards. The ease of registering Cyberpunk 2077 to GOG depends on where you’re playing. This page from CDPR has a breakdown, but the easiest way is to buy Cyberpunk 2077 through GOG. This will automatically add all associated rewards to your account.

If you’re using Steam/Epic, you’ll need to log into your GOG account when the REDlauncher appears to start Cyberpunk.

If you’re playing on PlayStation, Xbox, or Google Stadia, you should see a “My Rewards” option on the bottom right of Cyberpunk’s main menu. Select this tab to reveal a special link to a rewards activation page. Alternatively, you can use the provided QR code to activate rewards on GOG Galaxy.

Download Cyberpunk 2020

If you used a Steam or Epic copy of Cyberpunk, then the digital rewards will be downloadable through those clients. This includes a soundtrack, wallpapers, and a PDF of Cyberpunk 2020.

If you used the other methods, you’ll instead have all these goodies in your GOG library. The quickest way to claim them is to download the GOG Galaxy launcher. Then, from your GOG library, access Cyberpunk 2077. You should see a tab at the top labeled “Extras.” That tab will show you all of your digital rewards, including the Cyberpunk 2020 PDF.

Or you can go to GOG.com, click on your games collection, find Cyberpunk 2077 Digital Goodies, and download from there.

Once you’ve got your book, you can read up, create a campaign, and take your chooms on a wild ride through Night City!
