In a surprising turn of events, the much-anticipated metro system is finally making its way to Night City in the upcoming 2.1 update of Cyberpunk 2077. This update, scheduled for release on December 5th, 2023, marks a significant milestone in the game’s evolution, three years after its initial release in December 2020.
A Long-Awaited Arrival
The metro system, which was prominently featured in the E3 2018 trailer of Cyberpunk 2077, was notably absent in the game’s initial release. This absence was a point of contention among fans, given the metro’s potential to enhance the immersive experience of navigating Night City.
However, CD Projekt, the game’s developer, has now announced the restoration of the metro system, much to the delight of the game’s ardent fans. The metro system will not only serve as a mode of transportation but also provide players with an opportunity to engage in activities during their commute, further enhancing the game’s immersive experience.
More Than Just a Metro
The 2.1 update is not just about the metro system. It also introduces a portable radio feature, allowing players to enjoy the game’s soundtrack outside of vehicles. This feature, along with the metro system, is part of CD Projekt’s ongoing efforts to improve immersion and role-playing elements in the game.
The 2.1 update coincides with the launch of Cyberpunk 2077’s Ultimate Edition, which bundles together the base game and the Phantom Liberty expansion. This edition will be available exclusively on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
