Get Ready for Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty with Proper PC Cooling Systems

As the highly anticipated DLC, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, approaches its release date, developer Filip Pierściński from CD Projekt Red has issued a warning to players. He advises them to check the conditions of their PC's cooling systems, as the upcoming DLC will require a significant amount of processing power, even on the most powerful machines.

According to Pierściński, Phantom Liberty will consume an estimated 90% of a player's computer processing power. This means that it is essential to ensure that your PC's cooling systems are in optimal condition to handle the workload. To determine if your system is up to scratch, the developer suggests running Cinebench or a similar benchmarking tool to check the stability of your PC.

Despite the concerns, Pierściński has reassured fans by addressing their queries on social media. When asked if a specific processor would still be able to run the game, he responded positively, stating that it would be sufficient.

Phantom Liberty promises to bring a significant overhaul to Cyberpunk 2077, with new features and changes that have led fans to dub it “Cyberpunk 2.0.” The DLC will offer players a thrilling spy-thriller adventure, introducing new locations, weapons, and redesigned Cyberware. Additionally, it will bring in Dogtown, a new area inspired by South American drug lords, and the character Solomon Reed, portrayed by Idris Elba, who will assist players in their mission to save the President of the New United States. Keanu Reeves will also reprise his role as Johnny Silverhand.

Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty will be available on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S on September 26, 2023. Prepare for this exciting DLC by ensuring that your PC's cooling systems are up to par, as it will demand a substantial amount of processing power for an optimal gaming experience.
