When the highly anticipated, and highly delayed, open world game dropped in December past year many were extremely disappointed with the end result. He believes the fixes and patches coming from CD Projekt may not be enough to counter allegations of "unfair market practice". The company went on record to claim that game runs "surprisingly well" on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, only to later admit that it "didn't pay attention" to those versions. The game launched in a bad way, crawling with save file corruptions and a glaring lack of last-gen console optimization.

Sadly, there's no official release date for the update, although there are theories on Reddit and on sites like Game Infinitus that patch #1 will launch on January 15 or January 22.

It appears now though that a government investigation on Cyberpunk 2077 may have been started by the developer's home country of Poland. CD Projekt Red admitted it was wrong to rush the game out (despite eight or nine years of development, including delays), but refunds have been notoriously hard to come by.

The Polish Office of Competition and Consumer Protection has opened investigation into the current and ongoing state of Cyberpunk 2077, particularly on PS4 and Xbox One.

Dziennik Gazeta Prawna's report implied that Cyberpunk 2077's problems, especially its last-gen console performance, might not have been as surprising as some gamers might believe.

While the contents of the free DLC remain a mystery for now, the Cyberpunk website confirms that the content will be available in early 2021. With this mod installed players will be able to explore the fictional Night City, the city in which the game is set, with four new camera angles.

"You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality", reads the official description.

As the description suggests, different players will have a vastly altered experience based on their approach to gameplay.
