CDPR initially released Cyberpunk 2077 in 2020. Critics initially criticized it for its rushed release, game-breaking glitches, and failure to stay true to the game’s initial promise. The recent expansion and patch have completely overhauled the game’s mechanics and brought it closer to the game’s initial promise. The new ultimate edition will include the complete Cyberpunk 2077 experience.
Cyberpunk 2077 Ultimate Edition Details
On the official Cyberpunk 2077 website, CD Projekt Red revealed the first details of the upcoming Ultimate Edition. On it, they state:
Starting December 5th, Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC will be available for purchase digitally all around the world and physically in selected markets. If you like boxes, be on the lookout in your local store!
In the Ultimate Edition, experience the original Cyberpunk 2077 story as well as a new spy-thriller adventure in the Phantom Liberty expansion — a high-stakes tale of espionage set in the deadly district of Dogtown.
The release contains the base game with every update ever released, including the free Update 2.0, which overhauled many of the game’s systems such as dynamic skill trees, vehicle combat and enhanced enemy and police AI, and added various new weapons, vehicles, and clothes, as well as all free DLCs and the Phantom Liberty expansion.
Additionally, in a separate tweet, the global community director for CD Projekt Red confirmed that Phantom Liberty will be on a separate disc for the Xbox release. However, PS5 only has a “code included” and the PC version of the Ultimate Edition will be “downloadable as well.”
Lastly, Cyberpunk 2077 and its expansion Phantom Liberty are available now on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The upcoming Ultimate Edition will release on December 5 and cost $59.99.
