Cyberpunk 2077 had a rocky start. Like No Man's Sky all those years before, it was a title saved by patches that ironed out its plethora of bugs and technical issues.


We can now safely call the game a success, and fans are pretty excited about Phantom Liberty - the upcoming expansion.

However, CD Projekt Red aren't finished updating the base game just yet.

The massive 2.0 patch will go live very soon, and there will be many changes - a lot of them pretty significant. If you're wondering what the update entails, and when it's going live, we'll share it all below.

When will the Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 update go live?

It won't be long at all before the patch goes live - in fact, it's dropping later on today!

According to a tweet from Marcin Momot, CD Projekt Red's Global Community Director, Update 2.0 will arrive between 5 and 6PM CEST on the 21st September 2023. That's 4-5pm BST.

Check out the tweet below:

What’s changed in the Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 Phantom Liberty update?

We'll specify here that the 2.0 update is a separate event to the Phantom Liberty expansion. The latter is a paid expansion that includes a new district, story and characters. It's almost a whole new game, and you can read all about it here.

Changes to the base game, once you've installed update 2.0, are pretty major. From redesigned skill trees and perks to new radio stations, the whole experience is getting a swanky refurb.

There will also be a new police system, improved AI, UI and UX updates and changes to loot, items and crafting. Fear not, though, the epic story of the game won't be altered.
