Phantom Liberty is the first and only really big DLC for Cyberpunk 2077. In the story expansion we don’t just return to the well-known Night City, but explore a completely new district that has something special: Dogtown. A map leak now reveals the size, which can be easily compared with other districts.
Dogtown is bigger than it looks
The leak in question appeared on Reddit. A partial excerpt of the new map was published there, which also reveals the early DLC mission “Dog Eat Dog” in advance:

Where is Dogtown in Night City located? The new district is located in the south/southwest of the city and is part of Pacifica. It borders Coastview, West Wind Estate (both also subdivisions of Pacifica) and the Badlands. The DLC pushed the boundaries a bit. For example, the stadium is now in Dogtown.
How big is Dogtown? At first glance, the new area appears fairly compact. However, if you compare Dogtown with other districts that can only be seen on the map if you look closely through dividing lines, the size of Dogtown does not differ significantly from them.
It’s going high
In fact, the full extent of Dogtown is not visible from the flat map alone. As we were able to find out in our preview and in the test, the new area is characterized above all by a high degree of verticality, for example by many accessible floors.
Dogtown is also characterized as a combat zone by its isolation from the rest of Night City. The district has its own laws and the Barghest gang.

We have also summarized the new features of Update 2.0 and the DLC Phantom Liberty for you in a video. This means you are ideally prepared for the new cyberpunk experience:
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty will be released on September 26th for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC and lets us experience a dark espionage story. Last Gen consoles are not supported.
And the free update 2.0 is also reserved for the current systems. The release for this is on September 21st, a few days earlier. So there’s enough time to start over and prepare for the DLC.
