Back at Cyberpunk 2077’s launch, who’d have thought that one of 2023’s most exciting video game releases would be DLC for such a buggy and poorly received title?

Cyberpunk 2077 is living proof that given enough time, effort, and post-launch updates, even games that are very rough around the edges can be transformed into something spectacular. It’s made quite the comeback, with a full sequel in development as well as the upcoming Phantom Liberty DLC.

Take a look at the trailer for Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty below.

Phantom Liberty will once again follow protagonist V, but as well as giving them a bit more screen time, playing the DLC will unlock a brand new ending for the base game. During Cyberpunk 2077, V suffers from a Relic malfunction, which basically seals their fate - there’s no way to get around the fact that they’re slowly dying, and they actually do in most of the current endings. While, in theory, the DLC could add a happier ending for V, fans think it has the potential to be even more heartbreaking.

“I think there is gonna be an actual ‘cure’ for V’s condition in Phantom Liberty, but I also think that the cost is going to be so high that it’s almost gonna be pointless,” Reddit user MakaveliNow speculated.

Others agree that it’s unlikely that the new ending will be all sunshine and rainbows: “Cyberpunk’s source material, which CDPR has stayed relatively true to, has never been about happy endings. The cyberpunk genre isn’t about happy endings. The Star ending is going to be the closest you get to a ‘happy ending’, and I’m, for one, okay with that. It wouldn’t be cyberpunk if everything ended well,” Charming_Account351 wrote.

Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is set to release on 26 September, so we’ve got a little while to wait until we know what will happen to V.
