After the highly anticipated release of Cyberpunk 2077 in 2020, developer CD Projekt Red faced backlash and criticism due to the game's numerous bugs and glitches. The performance issues were particularly prominent on last-gen consoles, leading to the removal of the game from the PlayStation Store for several months. Despite efforts to rectify the problems, some gamers remained reluctant to give the game a second chance.
The recent reveal of the upcoming DLC, Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty, garnered mixed reactions from fans. While some expressed their disappointment and stated that they were not willing to support the game any further, others defended Cyberpunk 2077 and expressed excitement for the new content. It seems that opinions are divided among the player base, with some forgiving the game's initial flaws and looking forward to what the DLC has to offer.
Phantom Liberty will be the only planned expansion for Cyberpunk 2077 and promises to provide a spy-thriller experience. Players will explore a new area in Night City, accompanied by new skills, technology, and weaponry. The DLC is set amidst a backdrop of espionage, intrigue, and conspiracies, adding depth to the game's narrative.
In addition to the DLC, CD Projekt Red will release update 2.0 alongside Phantom Liberty. This update will introduce numerous new features to the base game, including new quests and gigs, vehicular combat, improved combat artificial intelligence, and a rebuilt police system. Although it is unclear which features will require purchasing the DLC, players on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC can look forward to these exciting additions.
Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty is set to launch on September 26th for current-gen consoles and PC. Despite the initial controversy, it appears that CD Projekt Red is determined to redeem themselves and deliver an enhanced gaming experience to their dedicated player base.
