Most game developers enjoy a surge of sales during their launch by offering pre-order bonuses, but not with Cyberpunk 2077. The game publisher, CD Projekt, recently dropped that they are totally skipping the pre-order bonus campaign to give light to gaming equality. This means that everyone” gets precisely the same in-game content” regardless if they purchase the game in pre-order or during its release.

A Reddit discussion posted the Twitter comment of Cyberpunk 2077 adamantly saying disapproving of pre-order bonuses. And that every gamer gets the same content even if they purchase the game two years later. Ditching out on the rewards means every player will have equal opportunity to start from the beginning and find their way to upgrading every game content along the way. A not surprising move considering that CD Projekt made the same approach with the third installation of The Witcher.

What’s clear though is CD Projekt is known to release lots of downloadable content built with new missions for all players to complete. These expansions are the only ones sold including the expansion pass, and bundled in a Game of the Year Edition release.

Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the highly anticipated games from the gaming company, and the dev team has been vocal about the game, building a solid fan-base in most discussion forums. More videos about the game have also been released in previous days, giving every gamer a glimpse of what’s in store.

The game is currently under the scalpel of the dev team and is expected for release on April 2020. It will be available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The game takes on an open-world environment, and the action-adventure story takes place in the metropolis of Night City. The storyline and the customizable mercenary is something anyone would find interesting about the game.

This open-world mission and exploration game have six regions to infiltrate, and possibly more in the future, with tons of high gears and weapons to collect and upgrade. The game draws inspiration from the Blade Runner game fused with the elements of the manga series Ghost in the Shell.

Cyberpunk 2077 released a teaser trailer in Jan 2013 garnering more than 12 million views by 2018. The game is due for release mid next year, but do not expect to get a pre-bonus content for purchasing the game early.
