Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is out next week ($29.99), but current players can enjoy the hefty 2.0 update for the open-world RPG right now.

The 2.0 update provides an entire overhaul to the skill tree system, adding new skills and revamping old ones. Cyberware has been redesigned and reigned in, with a limit now tied to your character’s level.

Vehicular combat has also seen a major boost, unlocking the use of guns and even melee weapons while driving, as well as quickhacks to take control of enemy cars.

The police system has received some much-needed love, including improved AI and a more appropriate escalation and behavior system. At max heat level, you’ll have to deal with the elite MaxTac.

Update 2.0 also adds improved UI, better rewards, and three new radio stations, including DJ Idris Elba, who plays a major character in the upcoming expansion.

The big update is free to all players of Cyberpunk 2077.

September 26 will see the release of the Phantom Liberty expansion, adding a new spy-thriller story, new district, and cyber-oodles of quests, weapons, and more.

Cyberpunk 2077 infamously released to less-than-stellar responses, with a magnitude of bugs and broken promises to what CD Projekt Red wanted to deliver. But like No Man’s Sky, the developer never gave up on it.

Cyberpunk 2077 is available on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S. It’s rated M for Mature.
