Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red may have unintentionally confirmed the first DLC

Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt Red may have unwittingly confirmed the recent Electric Dream DLC leak for Cyberpunk 2077. All this would have happened through a request, by the Polish studio, to remove the contents stolen from the web. In particular, the site has published a fairly explicit message to that effect, after having modified the news with confidential information:

“We were asked by CD Projekt Red to modify the content of this news due to the fact that the published material, such as the cited locations, plot or dialogues mentioned in the text, are CD Projekt Red secrets and have been obtained in a way not foreseen by the Cyberpunk license agreement 2077. ”

At this point we just have to wait for the official announcement. After a troubled development, in fact, Cyberpunk 2077 seems to have now reached a rather stable form and the sales data on next-gen confirm that the CD Projekt Red title is still quite appreciated. For this reason, it does not seem unlikely that the first DLC will be released in the company of a new patch that deals with solving the remaining problems of this title. We remind you to stay tuned to our pages for all the news relating to the summer conferences.

‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Is Getting Transmog For Its Clothing And Armor



It may be a while until we get any new Cyberpunk 2077 updates, given that everyone is heads down for the upcoming DLC in 2023. But we do know at least one thing that is definitely coming, given strong hints from the game and its developer. I’d say more than hints, more or less just…confirmation.

That would be transmog, the ability to wear whatever armor or clothing items you want and transform each piece to look like another piece, so you don’t look like a mismatched weirdo. It’s kind of par for the course for most RPGs to have some system like this now, but Cyberpunk doesn’t. That seems like it’s about to change, judging by this response to this fan:

Cyberpunk Quest Director Pawel Sasko also replied with the eyes emoji too.

The confirms something that was already glimpsed a few times, as the tag “transmog” was attached to a few of these slots in some past build data. What’s not clear is whether this could be something coming in a future patch, or if it will not arrive until the DLC. There have been other indications that smaller patches with new additions could be coming before 2023, which could even include new gigs to run, but we have no fixed confirmation on that yet. If so, however, I could see transmog arriving early.

The thing about transmog in Cyberpunk however is that…at least in my playthroughs, you could kind of wear anything you wanted, because the game’s difficulty was balanced such that it was easy to get overpowered to the point where it effectively didn’t matter at all what you wore. Given that my hacker build could stand on a curb and kill an entire building’s worth of enemies without moving, you didn’t exactly need to be loaded up in legendary armor. The same went for my melee build, as I was killing enemies so fast and healing up so quickly that my gear really did not matter.

Cyberpunk 2077


Now, since I played the campaign, the game’s difficulty has been somewhat rebalanced, especially on “very hard,” so that may no longer be true. So if that’s the case, new players coming in now probably would benefit more from transmog than I did back then.

If CDPR was really concerned about fashion, what they would implement is the extremely basic functionality of letting you preview what clothing items look like before you buy them. It’s wild to me you literally have to buy items, try them on, then reload a save if you don’t like them because there’s not a system in place that games have had for 20 years. Still not sure why that’s never been addressed, but hopefully it arrives alongside transmog.
