A new leak on Reddit has leaked the story and missions for the first expansion of Cyberpunk 2077, and here’s everything you need to know about it.
Data miners have leaked the story of Cyberpunk 2077’s first upcoming expansion online, giving fans a taste of what the new downloadable content will be like. The first upcoming DLC has already been confirmed by CD Projekt Red and so far not much has been shared about the company’s expansion.
However, this new leak seems to change all that as it will reveal all the different gameplay lines and missions for the expansion. The leak occurred on Reddit and was accidentally added to game files using the latest 1.5 patch. Here’s everything you need to know about the newly leaked first expansion of Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077’s first expansion story leaked online
Cyberpunk’s first expansion is slated to release in 2023, and although the base game experienced a poor launch, CDPR patched the game update by update. Recently, the content surrounding the first expansion of Cyberpunk 2077 was originally leaked by Reddit user under the username r/ff06b5, but was later deleted. However, few players managed to copy the file and repost it on the social media platform.
It is said that the developers added the files by mistake with update 1.5 and some users were able to dig them up and share them online. The new post via u/Nihas0 shares the full lines and dialogues of the first game expansion, which means players can download the files themselves and check out the game files themselves.
Reddit users have also revealed that the new Cyberpunk 2077 DLC expansion appears to be taking place in the Combat Zone, an area of Pacifica (the inaccessible area between 473road and Main Street in the base game). Several lines of dialogue that appeared clearly describe the entire plot of the DLC mission.
The DLC will follow the journey of Songbird, a character whose data was originally set from the original game and includes a completed model. From the leak, it looks like the expansion will include seven major missions. There will also be a Sports Dome, the large arena inaccessible from the base game to discover and it will also be the site of one of the expansion’s main missions.
For those who are wondering whether or not popular boy band Johnny Silverhand will make a comeback, the answer is up to some point. According to the leaked files, there appears to be little dialogue with Johnny Silverhand, the character played by legendary actor Keanu Reeves. However, it’s unclear if it’s because Reeves can’t score new lines or if the story just doesn’t need the character for the entire experience.
The DLC seems to change some of the dialogue in the end-game sequence. While the changes aren’t significant, the events of the DLC are mentioned (including the end of the Songbird arc which we won’t mention here). Both by the main character and Johnny.
Reddit users assume that the files appear to verify that the expansion will include installer quests, global stories, and new global encounters, in addition to the seven major missions. The leaked files are also said to be incomplete and there are many side quests with alt text only. That’s all we know about Cyberpunk 2077’s first leaked expansion so far.
