It's said that the DLC will completely revamp the base game, changing the systems that were implemented at launch into something new and improved, but it was later confirmed that some of those features will be added to Cyberpunk 2077 with a free update as well.

CD Projekt Red has officially revealed the details for those planning on either playing the new base game content or the paid DLC. You can read the full breakdown below.
