Because this is a huge AAA game, of course there's a season pass with additional episodes. Collectively, they're called "City That Never Sleeps." It's a trio of add-on stories in this case, with the first, "The Heist" out October 23rd, or, a few scant days before Red Dead Redemption 2.

We've been waiting for the next Cyberpunk game for years since CD Projekt Red revealed it in 2012, and when we finally got early looks at E3 and Gamescom, it looked worth the wait. Now, the developer has released a 48-minute gameplay video that looks very similar to what we saw at those shows -- but now everyone can see the glorious, neon-drenched, frequently-violent future awaiting them in Cyberpunk 2077.
