Remember back in April 2020 when we told you that Cyberpunk 2077 would see plenty of DLC after launch? Well, back then CD Projekt Red confirmed that the game would receive a bunch of DLC, including at least two major paid expansions – hinting that Cyberpunk would get the same attention as The Witcher 3. Now, we have confirmation that all the DLC, outside of the paid major expansions, will also be free – because that’s how CDPR rolls.
The news comes straight from Cyberpunk 2077’s official Twitter account in response to a fan question that asked whether or not the game would follow the footsteps of The Witcher 3. Technically, the account didn’t respond with a definite yes in terms of an official reply, but a gif of the Kool-Aid man says everything we need to know what’s up: “OH Yeah.”

So what does this mean we can expect from Cyberpunk 2077? Well, all in all, CDPR offered up 16 free DLCs for The Witcher 3 over the course of its life, so you should probably expect the same amount of attention for Cyberpunk as well. Of course, the free DLC won’t be as in-depth as the paid expansion, but CDPR did add in new quests, weapons, armor, modes, and even new contracts via free DLC, so there’s no reason it won’t do the same this time around.
The good news is that Cyberpunk 2077’s launch is right around the corner, with the now-official (and hopefully final) release day being November 19th. It will launch initially on the PlayStation 4 Xbox One, and PC, followed by Google Stadia by the end of 2020. CDPR expects to bring an updated version of the game – in terms of graphics – to the Xbox Series X and PS5 sometime in 2021.
