CD Projekt Red is gearing up to introduce a monumental update to its action role-playing game, Cyberpunk 2077. The impending 2.0 update, set to be released on September 21st, is available at no additional cost for existing owners of the game. A significant feature of this update is the inclusion of new skill trees and previously unseen perks.
Moreover, a significant overhaul of the in-game police system is on the horizon. This revamped system now operates on transparent and straightforward guidelines. Players engaging in criminal actions face punitive consequences, with law enforcement actively pursuing those known as 'runners' and exterminating individuals grappling with 'cyberpsychosis'. An intuitive 'Heat' system, displayed prominently on the game interface, notifies players of the impending police threat. Those reaching the pinnacle, marked by 5 stars on the Heat scale, can anticipate an encounter with a formidable Max Tac mini-boss. Escaping these enforcers initiates high-octane car chases and blockades, but evasion provides no opportunities for a peaceful surrender or bribery. However, the retreat of non-player characters (NPCs) from the scene serves as an indication that the pursuit has ended.
Exciting news awaits for Cyberpunk 2077!
The 2.0 update further enhances the combat capabilities of players. They can now engage enemies from their vehicles, be it by firing from the rear of motorcycles or shooting through car windows. Specialized mounted weapons can also be mounted on specific nomad vehicles. Additionally, 'netrunners', those proficient in virtual infiltration, can now hack into enemy vehicles, seizing control and even triggering explosions. This update is rounded off with user interface enhancements, enriched loot, crafting modifications, and fresh radio channels.
In a related development, the upcoming Phantom Liberty expansion is set to debut on September 26, with a price tag of $30. This expansion enriches the narrative landscape of Cyberpunk 2077 with a fresh storyline, intriguing characters, among whom one bears a striking resemblance to the actor Idris Elba, and an array of captivating quests.
