A playable arcade game hits Night City

There’s also another arcade machine inside the apartment in Westbrook, Japantown.

As for the gameplay, Roach Race is a simple side-scrolling adventure where you travel through iconic locations from The Witcher as Roach, one of Geralt’s many horses. You’ll travel through Skellige, Isle of Mists, Novigrad, Flotsam, and Kaer Morhen, as you collect carrots and apples and do your best to avoid getting hit.

The level loop is infinite, and although there are only five zones, Roach speeds up as you progress further and collect more points and hidden boosts.

If you manage to get into the top three on the Roach Race high score leaderboard in Cyberpunk 2077, CDP Arcades will contact you in-game via text, and you’ll earn yourself a pretty epic outfit inspired by Edgerunners.
