Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is set to be released soon and data miners have discovered hidden files that confirm the file size for the DLC and tease the long-awaited 2.0 update.
Phantom Liberty is Cyberpunk 2077’s first and last DLC expansion, according to CD Projekt Red. Given the difficulties the studio had making the base game a playable experience, it’s understandable that it only invested resources into one expansion for the sci-fi shooter. That said, this expansion is set to be a big one.
Phantom Liberty is set to add new locations, overhauled combat, enhanced enemy AI, diverse factions, and a more dynamic open world. With so many new additions, many have been expecting a hefty installation size. Leakers say that this will be the case, but maybe not just because of DLC. Cyberpunk 2077 is also set to receive the 2.0 update alongside Phantom Liberty.
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty file size revealed
The Phantom Liberty DLC will be over 32 GB upon release.
Leakers have all consistently reported that Phantom Liberty has a storage requirement of around 32 GB. The DLC will actually be almost half the size of the game itself at launch. With patches and updates in the mix, the Cyberpunk 2077 file size will only be getting bigger after the DLC’s release.
Interestingly, that wasn’t the only news leaked about Phantom Liberty. Alongside the leaked file size, it appears “Update 02.000.100” has been added to the database. This confirms that the long-awaited Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 update is about to become a reality.
Is the Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 update coming out soon?
The fabled Cyberpunk 2.0 update is set to come out alongside the DLC. This update features many of the enhancements that Phantom Liberty offers, without any of the DLC’s missions and items.
Cyberpunk 2077 had a disastrous launch phase to the point where many players demanded refunds due to performance issues that rendered the game unplayable. While those issues were predominantly related to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game, the game’s reputation as a whole was tainted.
The developers ironed out many of those troubles over time and made the games playable on all platforms. However, the original consoles will not be receiving the Cyberpunk 2077 DLC and may not receive the 2.0 update either. The PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions are still maintained by CD Projekt Red.
Cyberpunk 2077 is easier to get into nowadays on all platforms, though. With those technical issues out of the way, the 2.0 update and Phantom Liberty could bring the game to where it was expected to be at launch.
