New district, story, characters & missions

Dogtown is a brand-new district arriving in Cyberpunk 2077. It will be the epicenter of Phantom Liberty’s DLC story content. To help fill out this flashy new hotspot, players can expect a ton of new main story missions, gigs, along with a helping of new characters – and returning ones too!

New abilities, Perks & skill tree changes

In an interesting twist, instead of fleshing out the game’s already sizable and mapped out skill tree and abilities, CD Projekt Red has actually taken measures to reduce this aspect. Decreased numbers will simplify and consolidate a lot of the content, making it more accessible for new and older players.

There will also be new abilities, Cyberware, and Perks for V to test out too.

New weapons, vehicles & items

One area that will definitely be bolstered though is in the weapons and vehicles department. New arsenal-boosting items include the Order Shotgun, Grit Handgun, Warden SMG, Osprey Sniper Rifle, the Hercules, and much more.

In addition to all of this, players can head on down to the chop shop to pick up umpteen sets of new wheels. Sports cars, armored beasts, and even snazzy rides with six wheels. There will be plenty of choices, and you can also kit yourself without a new wardrobe full of customizable fashion options.

Level Cap increased

A smaller detail but an important one nevertheless, Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty and 2.0 update will raise the Level Cap from 50 to 60. This will allow players to grind out more XP, work toward a new target, and earn even more new abilities in the process.

Improved Police & general AI

Something that was a target of criticism in the initial game’s release, AI is being addressed. Glitches and bugs meant that some combat encounters were not as engaging as they could’ve been, so Cyberpunk 2077 is giving this side of things a big upgrade. Expect blockades, law-enforcing reinforcements, and vehicular battles.

UI upgrades & new radio stations

We’ve not seen too much of either yet, but CD Projekt Red has outlined that the game’s UI has undergone a redesign. Not only that but while you’re cruising along in your vehicles, you’ll be able to cycle through some new, bouncing radio stations too.
