CD Projekt Red’s highly anticipated game, “Cyberpunk 2077,” faced immense backlash from players upon its release at the end of 2020. Technical issues plagued the game, particularly on the PS4 and Xbox One consoles, making it nearly unplayable for many. Sony even offered refunds to players. However, the development team didn’t give up on the game. They diligently worked on updates to fix the problems and even added new gameplay elements.
Now, the first DLC expansion content for “Cyberpunk 2077,” called “Freedom Fantasy,” is set to be released at the end of this month. Excitingly, even players who haven’t purchased the DLC will receive a free major update, version 2.0, which will completely revamp various aspects of the game.
Before diving into the new content, CD Projekt Red’s Chief Scene Engineer, Filip Pierściński, advises players to ensure their PCs can handle the game. Pierściński suggests checking the cooling system of their computers, as the game utilizes the full potential of every component, potentially resulting in a 90% CPU workload on eight cores. To save time, he recommends running software like Cinebench to test the stability of their systems.
Even before its launch in December 2020, CD Projekt Red had made it clear that “Cyberpunk 2077” required high-end hardware. This factor likely contributed to many players facing issues during gameplay. As the release of the “Freedom Fantasy” DLC approached, the development team updated the hardware requirements to keep up with the changes in computer hardware since 2020.
The most noticeable difference is the newly added requirement of an SSD or NVME SSD for an optimal gaming experience. The recommended graphics cards and CPUs are now the RTX 2060 Super or RX 5700 and a minimum of 12GB of VRAM. Activating ray tracing would require even more powerful hardware, such as an RTX 4080 graphics card to enable top-level RT Overdrive in a 4K60fps environment.
Moving on to the “Freedom Fantasy” DLC, it takes place in the middle of the main storyline of “Cyberpunk 2077.” The DLC introduces players to a new area called “Dog Life Town” where they embark on a mission to save the captured President of the United States, only to find themselves entangled in a new conspiracy. The beloved character Johnny Silverhand, portrayed by Keanu Reeves, makes a return, joined by Hollywood star Idris Elba as a newly introduced character. Along with new areas, characters, equipment, stories, and missions, the DLC also introduces a new skill tree called “Sacred Artifact” and raises the level cap to 60.
The free 2.0 update, available to all players, brings a complete overhaul to the game’s UI interface, skill tree, biochemical accessories, and ability design. It also introduces vehicle combat, a police wanted system, and a brand new radio station for an enhanced gaming experience.
CD Projekt Red has emphasized that “Freedom Fantasy” will be the only major paid expansion DLC for “Cyberpunk 2077.” Following that, the team will shift its resources to the development of a new game in the “Witcher” series, abandoning their previous engine in favor of Unreal Engine 5 by Epic Games.
Excitement surrounds the upcoming “Freedom Fantasy” DLC, set to release on September 26, with the 2.0 update preceding it on the 21st. Players continue to anticipate new adventures and improvements in the futuristic world of “Cyberpunk 2077.”
When “Dynasty 2077” created by CD Projetk Red was initially launched at the end of 2020, it caused a lot of controversy among players due to many technical problems The performance problems of PS4 and Xbox One were so serious that many players It is difficult to play as custom, and Sony even allows players to apply for refunds. However, the development team did not give up on the game directly. Since then, it has gradually corrected many problems in the game through updates, and occasionally added some new gameplay elements. And now, the first DLC expansion content of the large-scale game “Freedom Fantasy” will be officially launched at the end of this month. At the same time, players who have not purchased the DLC can also get the free large-scale update 2.0, which will completely renew many aspects of the game Content of the game.

“Before releasing the Cybertron 2077 2.0 update and Free Fantasy DLC, make sure to check your computer’s cooling system. We will use all the performance of your computer, so the eight-core CPU utilization reaches 90% is also possible. I save your time, run Cinebench or similar testing software to check your computer’s stability.” said Filip Pierściński

The recommended graphics cards and CPUs are RTX 2060 Super or RX 5700 and 12GB of VRAM. If you want to turn on the ray tracing function, the hardware requirements will be higher. For example, you need an RTX 4080 graphics card to turn on top-level RT Overdrive in a 4K60fps environment.
