I just finished the main game last week, so good timing!
The DLC has a trailer!
I also just finished the main game the other day! While it was still moderately buggy before the patch that's out today, it was totally playable.
While Cyberpunk isn't as good as Witcher 3, I've been surprised by how much it's world has stuck with me and gotten under my skin. I'm definitely in the market for more.
Worth noting that a "2023" launch window could mean anything from February onward. I imagine CD Projekt has learned the perils of over-promising in that department.
As a Cyberpunk apologist (played last November) I’m fairly pumped for the DLC. I haven’t gone back since then, so I don’t know the effects of the big patch from earlier this year, but on PC I found it to be acceptable at the time despite some things still being janky. The strength is in the writing and presentation of quests, and weakness in the character systems and too easy combat (armor up, rush with shotgun, repeat.) I found it most fun as a hacker/stealth build because the combat didn’t really make it much of a challenge unless you stuck you nose in an area you aren’t leveled for.
It’ll be interesting to see just where this new district is gonna be. I have to assume in either the ocean or put in the emptier part of the desert. I wonder if there will be some explanation for that too, like it’s a big modular floating district that docked in the bay or something.
I hope the DLC will include good side quests too, because the moments where they showed slices of life in Night City were the best parts. The main quest line is good too, but things like helping River’s investigation, talking to the bodyguard guy (forgot his name) during the stakeout and going scuba diving with Judy were the things I liked best.
I liked it a bunch! Top class game from start to finish. Well, the last mission felt a little disappointing but apart from that it was great.
Without getting into spoilers, it seems like all the possible endings are REALLY different from each other. I liked the one I ended up on, but the final mission itself was a little anticlimactic. Still really dug the story overall.
@humanity: The current 1.6/Edgerunners update is free, and it added three new side missions, more guns, cross-saves, and being able to equip a set of clothes for the numbers but wear up to six different outfits for fashion souls, in addition to 1.5 finally adding the ability to change most of you V's facial and body appearance by using your bathroom mirror in the now up to four apartments that you can own. So, yeah. Plenty of quality-of-life features got added this year, even for consoles.
The upcoming, and current gen only, Phantom Liberty looks like it's going to be paid DLC; probably between $10 and $20 if Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine are accurate expectations, but a part of me hopes that it'll be free for at least a limited time as another "We're sorry that we fucked up".
@brian_: That most likely referred to the weapons, clothes, one new vehicle (I think), and an alternate look for Johnny that were released between update 1.3 (back in August of last year) and now. We might have to pay for Phantom Liberty.
I finished the game earlier this week and really enjoyed it. The game was such a disaster at launch that I had to abandon it back then and ask for a refund. After the Series X update I started to play it again slowly and ended up doing lots of the side missions because I didn't want to leave Night City.
So yes, I'm very excited for the DLC and very glad they're focusing on current-gen consoles going forward.
