Released last week on Netflix, the Cyberpunk Edgerunners was critically acclaimed and this might have driven people to give a chance to the game. Last week itself, which is the same timeline as the game’s Netflix anime release, the game was the no.1 best-selling title on Steam.
As said above, the game in itself has grown to become better as it received some major updates that fixed several issues. Once rated poorly, now the game has mostly positive reviews on Steam.
It has a total of 400,000+ reviews, most recommending the game, again, thanks to some of the recent updates that were pushed to the game. CD Projekt Red has confirmed that it will launch its first major DLC for the game called Phantom Liberty. The DLC, however, won’t be available for last-gen consoles, but it will be made available for new-gen consoles such as PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. And of course, it will be coming to PC as well.
Cyberpunk 2077 is an action role-playing game that sets in Night City. You play as a mercenary known as V and continue the story within a world that’s ahead of time.
