CD Projekt Red’s hotly anticipated new title, Cyberpunk 2077, has officially been given a release date and is now also available for pre-order. Like with most new releases, there are a few Cyberpunk 2077 editions available to consumers for purchase. Hence this post, which will help you decide on which version of the came to either pre-order or purchase at release.
For those who may not know, the game takes place in the not too distant future. Corporations rule the world and cybernetic augmentation is a way of life. Little is known about the story, but if it is anything like the narrative from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, then it stands to reason that Cyberpunk 2077 will be a modern masterpiece. I must also mention that it stars Keanu Reeves in a leading role – as if we needed any further reason to purchase the game!
The different Cyberpunk 2077 editions that are available for pre-order include digital, physical and collectors edition variants. As an owner of the gobsmaskingly gorgeous The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt collector’s edition, my money is definitely going to be spent on the collector’s edition version of the game. Although expensive, I can attest to the fact that CD Projekt Red do not skimp on quality with their collector’s editions. Regardless of which version of the game you choose to buy, however, I am confident the game will be well worth playing.
CD Projekt Red has confirmed that anyone who orders a physical copy of the game will receive the following pre-order bonuses:
- Case with game discs
- World Compendium detailing the game’s setting and lore
- Postcards from Night City

Cyberpunk 2077 – Standard Edition
The Standard Edition of Cyberpunk 2077 comes with the base game and the aforementioned pre-order bonuses. This is in stark contrast to almost any other video game release, whereby the standard editions of games come with nothing more than the game case and disc. With Cyberpunk 2077, every gamer will get the digital items listed above. Those who opt for the physical game, will also receive the aforementioned physical items.
Cyberpunk 2077 – Collector’s Edition
In terms of the Cyberpunk 2077 editions on offer, the Collector’s Edition is the ultimate version of the game to purchase. In addition to including everything from the Standard Edition and its pre-order bonuses, it also includes a series of unique items. The pinnacle of the set is, without a doubt, the almost 30 cm statue of V – the main protagonist in the game. If the quality is anything like the statue of Geralt riding a Griffin from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt collector’s edition, then this will absolutely be a collector’s edition not to miss!

- Collector’s Edition box
