After a maligned launch and months of updates, Cyberpunk 2077 is getting an enormous patch, an anime, and an growth.
Cyberpunk 2077 launched in December of 2020 to a lot fanfare. Unfortunately, at launch, the sport had …points. But the harm was finished and a number of the goodwill followers had in the direction of it’s builders appeared to have been burned up. But that didn’t cease CD Projekt Red from persevering with to work on it and enhance the sport publish launch. Back in February, after months of patches model 1.5 hit the stage. Was it lastly time to begin enjoying it for actual?
Since that replace much more has modified for the Cyberpunk 2077 universe. For starters, the brand new Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Anime now has a launch date (September 13, 2022) and full trailer.

“Get ready for Phantom Liberty — a spy-thriller expansion for Cyberpunk 2077 set in an all new district of Night City. Coming in 2023 to PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia.”
From the look of the trailer it looks as if our protagonist V has “enlisted” within the “New United States of America” in some capability. It additionally feels like Johnny Silverhand isn’t too happy. Aside from that we get a take a look at some new weapons and some brief cutscenes with out an excessive amount of else to go on. We do have a brand new feminine character who we will assume is the one V is speaking to. But that’s about it. There can also be an ambiguous “2023” date that pops-up on the finish of the video as properly.
So with all these Cyberpunk 2077 Updates… what’s going on with Cyberpunk 2077? Is it time to fireside the sport again up and make a journey into Night City? The sport is objectively higher than it was at launch. So in case you waited out the storm (or simply skipped it on the primary go) now isn’t the worst time to leap in. In truth that is most likely a greater time to provide it a go with out all the bags from the rocky launch.
Considering the updates and enhancements I’d simply hearth it up once more, too. I do know the Anime sequence is a 10-episode “standalone” story however there might be some nods to the sport and different easter eggs hidden within the present. So getting re-familiarized with the sport world gained’t be a foul factor, both.
Will I lastly be capable of dwell out my Night City Cyberpunk goals? Time to reboot and discover out.
