A hidden message in the latest trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 has revealed that free DLC drops for the sci-fi RPG will begin to arrive in “early 2021”.
In a single frame of the trailer, right at the end as the ‘pre-order’ image flashes up, a lengthy message from CD Projekt Red can be viewed. The message reveals that the free DLC program for Cyberpunk 2077 will begin in early 2021, and provide an assortment of free “cool stuff”.
“We’ve mentioned before that expansions will be coming, and while we’re not ready to talk specifics just yet, we will say that we’ve learned a lot from our work on both Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine. Our planned expansions will take you even deeper into the world of Cyberpunk 2077, offering substantial, story-driven content that’ll give you tough choices to make through impactful narratives that you won’t soon forget,” said the developer in its hidden message.
“But before we get there, we’ll first be kicking off our free DLC program in early 2021. Just like with The Witcher 3, expect an assortment of free DLC packs to begin hitting Night City, dropping a bunch of cool stuff that’ll inject even more life into the world of the dark future.”

If you don’t recall CDPR’s approach for The Witcher 3, the free DLC included minor quests, new outfits for both Geralt and the major characters, and a New Game+ mode. Cyberpunk 2077 would certainly be a prime candidate for all those elements, but with learnings from the really rather good Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine expansions under its belt, hopefully there’s some slightly more inspiring tidbits to come with the free program.
