Gamers will have to pay for Cyberpunk 2077's first (and only) story-driven DLC, Phantom Liberty. It will likely cost between US$10 and US$20 and launch sometime in early 2023.

Despite its rocky launch, CD Projekt Red managed to salvage Cyberpunk 2077 quite well by topping it up with a steady stream of patches. There's a sequel in the works, too, but that is unlikely to see the light of day anytime soon. Meanwhile, the only major piece of content to look forward to is the upcoming Phantom Liberty DLC. Unfortunately, it won't be free.

CD Projekt Red told Gamesradar in a statement that Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty would be a paid expansion. If previous titles are anything to go by, one can expect the DLC to cost between US$10 and US$20. Events of Phantom Liberty are expected to take place in a previously-inaccessible area of Pacifica and allegedly feature a new protagonist. It is also rumoured to unlock a new ending.

Phantom Liberty will also be the only story-driven DLC launched for Cyberpunk 2077, which is disappointing because CD Projekt Red claimed the game would have more downloadable content than The Witcher 3. Meanwhile, The Witcher 3 is all set to get a next-gen remake soon and even some content from its Netflix adaptation. At this point, CD Projekt Red is better off shifting focus to the sequel because no amount of patches and QoL upgrades can fix Cyberpunk 2077's underwhelming story.
