Back in September 2020, a few months before the release of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red CEO Adam Kiciński said that the game’s DLC will follow a similar path to The Witcher 3. “You can expect more, actually,” he even said, answering questions from investors in a conference call for the company’s first half earnings report.

Since then, we’ve gone through a failed launch. This was followed by a series of much-needed but nonetheless non-satisfactory patch updates. We’re reaching a year since the release of Cyberpunk 2077, and yet, the game remains in a buggy state. Thankfully, modders have been up to the task, restoring cut content, stabilizing the game, and even improving it from the ground up.

Now, we’re reaching yet another patch release for Cyberpunk 2077. Patch 1.3 is touted by CD Projekt Red as their biggest one to date. It does seem like the game will receive a considerable facelift with this new patch, and many odd issues will finally be addressed. The biggest quality of life change involves the game’s busted GPS system, which will finally be revamped in Patch 1.3.

While all of the changes coming to Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.3 can be found in the patch notes. However, apart from these changes, the new patch will also bring about Cyberpunk 2077‘s first free DLC content. We didn’t really have high hopes for this one – but we are still left disappointed when CD Projekt Red announced what’s going to be in the first DLC pack.

Cyberpunk 2077 First Free DLC Pack Contents

To give you a glimpse of what’s going to be inside the first free DLC pack for Cyberpunk 2077, feast your eyes on the following:

  • Johnny Silverhand’s Alternative Appearance
  • Multilayered Syn-Leather Deltajock Jacket, Luminescent Punk Jacket
  • Archer Quartz “Bandit”

All of these items are purely cosmetic. Granted, The Witcher 3‘s first DLC pack also featured armor sets, but at least those had gameplay use. For comparison, The Witcher 3‘s first DLC pack had the following:

  • Temerian Armor Set
  • Horse Gear
  • Beard and Hairstyle Set

Writing those down reminded me again how The Witcher 3 had a barbershop, and let Geralt grow his beard naturally over time. Meanwhile, you can’t change your appearance in Cyberpunk 2077 once you set foot in Night City.

We didn’t really expect much, but somehow knowing that Cyberpunk 2077‘s first free DLC set would be underwhelming makes us wish that CD Projekt Red bided their time and released the first free DLC set with more content instead. At this point, these menial downloadable content won’t get anyone coming back to Night City.

It feels like CD Projekt Red should have piled up their free DLC packs and released them all together if only to make them more appealing. At this point, any new updates, patches, and DLC packs that CD Projekt Red puts out for Cyberpunk 2077 don’t really help bring lapsed players back.
