CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 DLC ‘Phantom Liberty’ Price Revealed

CD Projekt Red’s highly-anticipated DLC for Cyberpunk 2077, ‘Phantom Liberty,’ is set to release in a week, igniting excitement among fans. However, speculation arose regarding the pricing strategy for the expansion. Would CD Projekt Red surprise fans by offering it as a free update or apply a separate fee? Let’s explore the details and pricing of ‘Phantom Liberty.’

Is the ‘Phantom Liberty’ DLC Free?

As expected, the ‘Phantom Liberty’ DLC will not be available for free. CD Projekt Red has announced a standard retail price of $29.99 USD for the expansion, in addition to the $59.99 USD cost of the base game. However, an option is available to purchase both the Cyberpunk 2077 base game and ‘Phantom Liberty’ together as a bundle, offering an 8% discount at $82.78 USD.

Players who are unable to afford the DLC right away need not feel left out. CD Projekt Red will release a significant free update a few days before the ‘Phantom Liberty’ DLC launch. The update, called version 2.0, includes substantial enhancements such as police AI improvements and a revamp of the skill tree system. For a deeper understanding of these changes and their potential impact, read our early impressions on the update.

While the $29.99 price tag may be steep for some players, especially for those hoping for a free download, the value of ‘Phantom Liberty’ will ultimately depend on whether it delivers improvements that the base game lacked at its launch.
