Cyberpunk 2077 will start receiving free DLC early next year, as a new update to the game’s official website has discovered.
While no details were given including specific release dates or what the DLC would entail, the official Cyberpunk 2077 website has been updated with the news. The page can be viewed here at link, which only reveals that the DLC will be free and released in early 2021.
Whether or not that is news may depend on how carefully you watched the Cyberpunk 2077 launch trailer, released on December 8th. PC player points out that at the end of the trailer, behind the game’s logo, a text flashes on the screen revealing the plans for CD Projekt Red for Cyberpunk DLC.
“Our planned expansions will take you even deeper into the world of Cyberpunk 207, offering substantial, story-driven content that will give you tough choices to make through hard-hitting narratives you won’t soon forget,” reads -on in the CD Projekt message (via PC player).
“But before we get there, we’ll be launching our free DLC program first in early 2021. Just like with The Witcher 3, expect an assortment of free DLC packs to start hitting Night City,” dropping a bunch of cool stuff that ‘I’m going to inject some more life into the world of the dark future. “
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the CD Projekt Red game before Cyberpunk 2077, received 16 free DLC tracks in addition to two major paid story expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. If there’s something to be done, Cyberpunk’s DLC may feature new cosmetic and gameplay options. For example, Wild Hunt didn’t have New Game Plus until it was added as DLC. As of this writing, Cyberpunk does not have New Game Plus either.
Of course, this news comes amid a disastrous launch for Cyberpunk 2077, which was released buggy across all platforms and nearly unplayable on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Since Cyberpunk’s release on December 10, CD Projekt Red has refunds offered to frustrated players, had the game from the PlayStation Store, and now faces a class action investors. Despite these issues and controversies, in a recent investor report, CD Projekt Red revealed that it had sold 13 million copies from Cyberpunk 2077.
