- Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition will be released on December 5 for the Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC, combining the original game with all of its past updates and the Phantom Liberty expansion.
- CDPR has yet to attach an official price to Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition, although one recent leak suggested it will be priced like the base game, thus essentially offering the $29.99 Phantom Liberty DLC for free.
CD Projekt RED announced Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition, revealing that the new version of its 2020 RPG is set to hit both digital and physical store shelves on December 5. This turn of events likely won’t come as a surprise to many fans keeping tabs on the developer, as the existence of Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition already leaked online by the way of a PEGI rating back in early October.
The new version of the game is now scheduled to hit the market just five days ahead of its three-year anniversary. While the backward compatibility of the current-generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft allowed PS5 and Xbox Series X/S owners to play Cyberpunk 2077 from day one, CDPR only launched its next-gen update in February 2022, after it was largely done making amends for the game’s buggy launch. The studio didn’t get around to doing a physical release of Cyberpunk 2077 for the current-gen consoles up until now.
Much like its name implies, the newly announced Ultimate Edition of the game combines the hit RPG with all of its past updates and the critically acclaimed Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty expansion into a singular package. The physical release also boasts new box artwork featuring V, Keanu Reeves’s Johnny Silverhand, and Idris Elba’s Solomon Reed. Song “Songbird” So Mi, the central character of Phantom Liberty voiced by Minji Chang, is also on the cover.
Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition Price Has Yet To Be Confirmed
The most unexpected part of CDPR’s announcement is that Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition will also be available for PC, as only its console versions leaked online prior to today’s reveal. Meaning PC is soon set to become the only platform to ever receive two physical releases of Cyberpunk 2077. CDPR has yet to mention the game’s pricing, although one premature retailer listing previously pointed to the Ultimate Edition being priced the same as the base game. That would make it quite an attractive offer for anyone who doesn’t yet own the original, as Phantom Liberty alone costs $29.99.
The release of the game’s Ultimate Edition comes at the tail end of its active support period. While some minor patches containing bug fixes and performance improvements are still a possibility, CDPR isn’t expected to follow up on the massive 2.0 update from late September with anything of comparable scope. Nevertheless, the IP itself won’t stay dormant for long, as the developer is already working on the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel that aims to emulate the evolution of The Witcher franchise.
Cyberpunk 2077 is an RPG set in a future dystopian world. Players take up the role of V, who works as a mercenary in Night City in California. Gameplay involves branching dialogue, open-world exploration, character classes, and combat.
