CD Projekt RED announced the new version of their latest game, Cyberpunk 2077 Ultimate Edition.
Cyberpunk 2077 Ultimate Edition is coming very soon
The new version of the Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release just five days ahead of the game’s 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.
Just like expected, the Ultimate Edition will combine both the main game and the Phantom Liberty in one 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
CD Projekt Red has not mentioned any pricing yet, 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.
