CD Projekt RED Recommends Starting A New Save File After Installing The Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 Update

Cyberpunk 2077’s launch back in 2020 was a historic event in games, though not for the reasons CD Projekt RED or fans who had been waiting a decade for its release would have hoped.

Tomorrow however, ahead of Cyberpunk 2077’s first and last expansion Phantom Liberty, the game will be getting a huge 2.0 update, that by the look of it drastically changes the experience of playing Cyberpunk 2077.

The Phantom Liberty expansion isn’t free, but the update is, and for everyone to best enjoy it, CD Projekt RED has gone so far as to recommend players just start a brand new save file.

You don’t have to start a new save file of course, but with how much has been changed in the progression system alone, it makes sense as to why CDPR would point to a new save file for the best experience and understanding of the new choices made.

While you’ll be able to continue the game with your current character on an existing save, we recommend starting a new game after Cyberpunk 2077’s update 2.0.

Due to the number of changes, starting fresh will enhance your overall gameplay experience!

It’s taken more than two years, and a lot of apologies paired with bright yellow backgrounds to get here, but the 2.0 update and the new expansion could finally be the changes that cement Cyberpunk 2077’s comeback story to it now being a highly beloved game.
