Cyberpunk 2077 will be getting free DLC, CD Projekt Red has confirmed. 

In a reply on Twitter, CD Projekt Red responded to a tweet asking if Cyberpunk 2077 (opens in new tab) will get any free DLC like its "big brother" The Witcher 3. Because this is the internet, the developer confirmed there will be free DLC with a GIF of the Kool-Aid Man doing his famous "ohhhh yeah" catchphrase.

After the release of The Witcher 3, a whole variety of free DLC released with new hairstyles, beards, armour, character skins, and contracts. While we don't know what the free DLC will be just yet for Cyberpunk 2077, it could very well be of a similar vein with new cosmetic options to customise your character with or extra weapons and gear. The developer previously revealed that the upcoming Cyberpunk RPG will also be getting paid expansions similar in scale (opens in new tab) to The Witcher 3's Blood and Wine and Hearts of Stone DLC.

After the announcement that the release date for Cyberpunk 2077 was once again delayed (opens in new tab) with a new launch date of November 19, the game is set to launch on both current and next-gen platforms. With the upcoming arrival of the Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) and PS5 (opens in new tab), CD Projekt recently revealed that there will be a free next-gen upgrade in the future (opens in new tab)

Senior staff writer

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
