Does Phantom Liberty have a New Game Plus mode?

No, a New Game Plus mode has not yet been announced for Phantom Liberty or Cyberpunk 2077 Update 2.0. In addition, there was no New Game Plus (NG+) mode in the Cyberpunk 2077 base game upon release in 2020.

Players who restart the campaign will lose all progress made, including unlocks, perks, and other bonuses, from their previous game.

Moreover, a number of players have voiced concerns about an NG+ mode in the game, with several citing the original statement made by CDPR’s Level Design Acting Lead last year regarding how difficult it is to implement.

One of the stated reasons was that it would necessitate rebalancing the entire game, which involves modifying enemy skills, perk points, attributes, etc., which is a complicated process.

However, Cyberpunk 2077 players can use PC mods to obtain a Pseudo NG+ mode that allows them to transfer over weapons and attributes from a previous save point, as there has been no confirmation that such a mode will be included in either the expansion or Update 2.0.

So, there you have it – details about a New Game Plus mode in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty. For more Cyberpunk content, be sure to check our guides:
