With Cyberpunk 2077’s latest 2.0 update now live, fans are diving in to see what changes have been made to overhaul the base game.
With promises of new skill trees, redesigned cyberware, new perks, revamped AI (specifically Night City police), new vehicles and vehicular combat, an increased level cap and ‘endless dynamic events’, CD Projekt Red really pulled out all the stops for Update 2.0. This is of course in preparation for Cyberpunk 2077’s first and only expansion, Phantom Liberty which drops on 26 September.
Update 2.0 launched on 21 September and with fans pretty deep into the new content, a few have noticed some nods to Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, an animated Netflix series based on the game. Released in 2022 and recently celebrating its one-year anniversary, Edgerunners quickly became the favourite show of many thanks to its nod to the universe and its heartbreaking story.
Check out the Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty trailer below!
The following contains spoilers for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners
Spotted by Twitter user SynthPotato, players can head over to North Oak in Westbrook once you load up the newly updated Cyberpunk 2077. Once here you can come across a beautiful tribute to Edgerunner’s David Martinez who was killed by Adam Smasher at the end of the show.
The tribute shows a hologram with the description reading "You didn't take me to the moon, but you were there with me". This refers to Lucy’s dream to head to the moon with David which unfortunately never happened after his death. The show ends with her visiting it alone and wishing they were there together. Heartbreaking, right?
It’s no surprise that CD Projekt Red had plans to include nods to Edgerunners in its latest update. Not only are the two set in the same future but many fans who had never played Cyberpunk 2077 were brought over after watching the anime. That being said, you can expect a few more nods to the show when exploring Night City such as new skills being named after Edgerunners characters such as David, Lucy and Rebecca.
Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 is now live and will be a free update to your base game. Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty launches on 26 September for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and Windows.
