Cyberpunk 2077 is almost here, after 8 years of development we are just hours from launch.
But we are already looking towards the future as CD Projekt Red have given some interesting hints at future DLC.
CD Projekt Red released their final trailer for the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077.
And in it they included a hidden message which detailed what the future will look like for the game.
Although they are not ready to talk about what future DLC will look like, they did confirm that free content will be coming in early 2021.
These pieces of free DLC will take players even deeper into the world of Cyberpunk and promises story driven content and impactful narratives.
We've mentioned before that expansions will be coming, and while we're not ready to talk specifics just yet, we will say that we've learned a lot from our work on both Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine. Our planned expansions will take you even deeper into the world of Cyberpunk 2077 offering substantial, story-driven content that'll give you tough choices to make through impactful narratives that you won't soon forget.
But before we get there, we'll first be kicking off our free DLC program in early 2021. Just like with The Witcher 3, expect an assortment of free DLC packs to begin hitting Night City, dropping a bunch of cool stuff that'll inject even more life into the world of the dark future. We hope you're looking forward to them!
It appears that the plan will be similar to how they handed post-launch content for The Witcher 3.
That included various pieces of free DLC alongside massive paid expansions, which included Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be available at launch on:
- PC via GOG, Epic Games Store, and Steam
- PlayStation 4
- Xbox One
- Google Stadia
What About PS5 & Xbox Series X|S?
CD Projekt Red have confirmed that the game will be coming to both the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
However, this won't be at launch and will instead be released hopefully sometime in 2021.
The good news is, due to both consoles' backwards compatibility, Cyberpunk 2077 will be playable on both next gen consoles at launch.
But, players will be using the PS4/Xbox One version of the game, meaning they won't get any of the improved graphics, ray tracing etc.
Will I Need To Buy The Game Again?
It has been confirmed that owners of the PS4 and Xbox One version of the game will be able to upgrade to the next gen version for free when it is released.
CD Projekt Red confirmed on Twitter that "a later upgrade to Cyberpunk 2077, taking full advantage of the next-gen hardware, will be available for free."
Day One Patch
DreamcastGuy has revealed that the game will have a 43GB patch on day one.
This is only confirmed for the Xbox One, but it is likely the size won't vary too much across all platforms.
Cyberpunk 2077 went gold shortly before its initial release date, meaning that this version will have been the one manufactured onto physical disks.
So with CD Projekt Red taking more time to work on the game, it is understandable we're seeing a large day one patch.
The update will mainly fix any issues the game might have, as well as improving textures and other graphical elements.
