A modder by the name of romulus_is_here has data mined CD PROJEKT RED’s latest Cyberpunk 2077 update and discovered that the hotfix contains quite a bit more than just simple bug fixes and gameplay optimizations. As explained by Eurogamer (who was able to reach out to romulus for more information), Hotfix 1.21 includes numerous references to additional story quests that aren’t part of the original game, such as a rescue mission against scavengers in a new location dubbed Newcomers Haven. The naming scheme and amount of newly uncovered files (over 200) would suggest that Cyberpunk 2077’s first DLC will be a large, story-heavy one that comprises “street stories”—a term that CD PROJEKT RED coined for smaller, less cinematic quests that were intended to flesh out and liven up Night City.
Cyberpunk 2077 dataminer finds unreleased quest descriptions – potentially for upcoming free DLChttps://t.co/RzUHOBp66n— Eurogamer (@eurogamer) April 15, 2021
[…] Romulus said he believes “the majority of the street stories introduced in episode one will centre around Pacifica”, and indeed, several of the ep1 street stories feature Pacifica fixer Mr. Hands. When Cyberpunk 2077 released many players said Pacifica felt a little unfinished, with surprisingly few gig quests. It seems likely that these Pacifica quests were not finished in time for the game’s release, and could be added in through free DLC patches.
