How Long Is Cyberpunk 2077?
If you aim to finish the main game before diving into Phantom Liberty, you have options. Focusing solely on main missions should take around 24 hours. However, completing all side quests will keep you busy for more than 105 hours.
Will Phantom Liberty Change the Main Story?
CD Projekt Red has clarified that the DLC will introduce a new ending. Yet, this doesn’t significantly alter V’s core narrative. All the original endings in the base game will still be intact.
