Cyberpunk 2077 DLC: Why Space Travel Is So Likely
Cyberpunk 2077 DLC
CD Projekt Red is just starting out with the plans of its for Cyberpunk 2077. The Polish developer is actually committed to expanding Night City throughout 2021 and fixing the bugs that were present during the open world title’s debatable launch on December ten. Cyberpunk 2077 DLC updates that are free are going to begin to roll out in the first months of 2021, but CDPR has a much bigger expansion planned further down the line that could very likely include space travel.
The developer previously announced plans for a premium Cyberpunk 2077 DLC pack which will take players “deeper into the world of Cyberpunk 2077, offering substantial, story driven content.” There is good evidence to think that it’ll take place aboard a space station that is floating over Night City called the Orbital Air Space Center. The launch pad to reach this orbital base is even provided in the West side of the Night City’s world map, but it is blocked off by a fence making it currently inaccessible to players. Could the upcoming DLC unlock this area?
CDPR has not revealed anything about what it’s planned for the DLC, but there are actually plenty on in game hints and easter eggs that suggests a space faring adventure is actually destined to be in Cyberpunk 2077’s future. The Orbital Air Space Center seems to be an area that the developer had planned to be visited, but it never quite made the final cut of the name since the company was under intense deadline pressure after delaying the release multiple times. In reality, an unverified leak recently claimed that the Cyberpunk 2077 DLC is going to consist of cut content the developer had left over, nonetheless, CDPR shut down those rumors with a Tweet on January six. So what other evidence is there that the Cyberpunk 2077 could 1 day include space travel?

Cyberpunk 2077 Space Station DLC
Probably the most compelling piece of evidence is actually provided as a part of one of Cyberpunk 2077’s 5 different endings. This particular conclusion includes a scene where V floats off to rob a casino that is aboard a space station that is mentioned several times throughout the campaign but is never revealed. If this’s the situation, the DLC would either have to be a prequel to the primary story (because several of the game’s endings culminate with V dying) or perhaps take place in the short window after the game ends but before V succumbs to death. Although this type of flashback or perhaps shoved in DLC will ruin the gravity of Cyberpunk 2077’s ending, it does explain the Orbital Air Space Center launch pad that is conspicuously located in Night City.
Additionally, there are various Orbital Air billboards and television advertisements throughout Night City that make is actually seem as the corporation plays a significant role in Cyberpunk 2077’s universe but it is not answered in the main story. The inclusion of a space station DLC will fill these spaces in environmental storytelling, while taking a page out of Rockstar Games’ release of GTA Online’s Diamond Casino Heist in April. Fans are going to need to wait for CDPR to unveil the plans of its for the future DLC to be sure, but all fingers point to the stars.
