Cyberpunk 2077 DLC has been rumored for a while now. Ever since the original game came out in 2020, fans have been speculating when CD Projekt RED will drop the long-awaited expansion. CDPR has finally dropped a teaser for Cyberpunk 2077’s expansion that will drop in 2023.
The Night City broadcast today brought a lot of new information about the game, including news about DLC, which you can see below:
According to the official announcement, the expansion pack will bring back Keanu Reeves’ Johnny Silverhand. There will also be some new characters that can be seen in the teaser. The credits in the trailer read:
'Get ready for Phantom Liberty — a spy-thriller expansion for Cyberpunk 2077 set in an all-new district of Night City'
This indicated that the plot will revolve around espionage, although not much has been revealed about the actual plot. CDPR’s director has stated that they’ve done something completely different with the plot this time around, and it’s going to be a lot of fun. The DLC will be released in 2023, although a solid release date has not been announced. TThe DLC will only be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series x and S, and PC.
It has been reported that Cyberpunk 2077 will have several DLCs. There may be further announcements in the future, but for now the Phantom Liberty is one that will launch next year.
Tuesday’s Night City broadcast also announced the Edgerunners update for the game, which goes live today. It ties in with the upcoming September 13th release of the Cyberpunk Edgerunners anime series on Netflix.
CDPR’s director also announced a final major update for the older generation of consoles, ie. version 1.6. The update will be a major overhaul of the police system and car combat. I want to offer a whole new perspective on the game. The feature had been requested by fans for a while now.
Although 1.6 will be the last major update, there will be smaller updates on both PS4 and Xbox One that will primarily focus on keeping gameplay smooth and bug-free. From that, all news updates will appear on the next-gen consoles as well as PC.
