Failing one of many DLC’s early goals gained’t simply result in a recreation over, it’ll fail the enlargement’s total questline for you.

That discovery not too long ago made the rounds on-line in a clip shared by Cyberpunk obsessive Synth Potato. Because the beginning “Canine Eat Canine” mission transitions to “Gap within the Sky,” gamers are tasked with rescuing a high-value goal from sure doom. In the event that they select to disregard it or take too lengthy to get there the mission turns into a failure, full with a particular mini-epilogue from Keanu Reeves’ Johnny Silverhand. Principally all the Phantom Liberty major storyline quests then grow to be locked off. Oops.

A spoiler warning is displayed.

The VIP in query in “Gap within the Sky” is after all NUSA President Myers. The primary a part of the mission entails speeding to her crash web site. That must be the simplest half, however that apparently wasn’t the case for Synth Potato’s brother. As an alternative, he drove like a maniac and by no means reached the target, by accident unlocking one of many enlargement’s “secret endings” within the course of.

“You may straight up fail Cyberpunk Phantom Liberty’s introduction and lose entry to the whole DLC’s major quest for those who select to disregard the target and let Myers die with a particular cutscene and line supply from Johnny for those who achieve this!” Synth Potato tweeted yesterday. “Shout out to my brother for driving like an fool and discovering this lmao Insane consideration to element and an superior Easter egg.”

This failed ending exhibits V waking up from a blackout, on the bottom in Dogtown. “Your presidential rescue op. Depressing failure,” Johnny Silverhand says. “Actually although, good fucking riddance.” He then suggests the 2 of you go on dwelling life, beginning by getting a drink.

Fortunately, anybody who accidently will get this ending can nonetheless reload their final autosave to return and attempt to full the mission efficiently to proceed on the Phantom Liberty questline. As Synth Potato factors out although, it’s a pleasant little alternate final result that provides to what makes the revived, extra full Cyberpunk 2077 expertise so wealthy.
