The trailer focuses on Lucy introducing David to the virtual world that only cyborgs are able to access. David’s mind is blown away by this new, intense, psychedelic world that Lucy is a part of and is inspired to become an edgerunner – a mercenary outlaw, also known as a cyberpunk. The trailer also shows some sneak peeks of upcoming bloody battles between David and his team, and their cyborg enemies.

Lucy makes a poignant statement to David, “You don’t make a name as a cyberpunk, by how you live, you’re remembered by how you die.”
