Although it is still more than six months away, there's no doubt that many are ready to get their hands on Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt Red's reputation, combined with what has been shown and revealed about the game so far, has fans on the edge of their seats, and it is now known that Cyberpunk 2077 will receive multiple free DLCs in a vein similar to The Witcher 3. It remains to be seen what form this takes, but it's hard to beat free.
Of course, those who are interested in the free DLC will need to purchase Cyberpunk 2077 before that, and luckily pre-order bonuses and special editions for the game are plentiful. There's definitely a little something from everyone, from those who enjoy souvenirs to those who like to own a game's soundtrack. Even those who don't pre-order, but do pick up a physical copy, will receive a few nice items for the game. Here are all the pre-order bonuses and special editions for CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077 Pre-Order Bonuses
Here are the retailer-specific pre-order bonuses for Cyberpunk 2077:
GameStop - Samurai Medallion (pictured above)
Best Buy - $10 reward credit for My Best Buy members and a free Steelbook
GOG - Exclusive digital game booklet, additional cosmetics like wallpapers and avatars, print quality posters, and 30% off from the official merch store.
Cyberpunk 2077 Standard Edition
Typically, purchasing the Standard Edition of a game simply comes with the game and sometimes a cool digital item or two. It's clear, however, that Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt has gone the extra mile for its playerbase and included a plethora of items, both physical and digital, that will come alongside the game.
Physical items include a World Compendium, postcards from Night City, a map of the city, and some stickers. Digital items include the game's soundtrack, a digital art booklet, a Cyberpunk 2020 sourcebook, and some wallpapers. On top of that, the retail giant Walmart has discounted Cyberpunk 2077's pre-orders by $10.

Cyberpunk 2077 Collector's Edition
Those who thought the Standard Edition came with enough may be blown away by the number of bonus items associated with Cyberpunk 2077's Collector's Edition. As seen above, there are a ton physical items players will receive, and there are also quite a few digital items as well. It's also worth adding that it retails for $249, which isn't bad considering that the Crypto-137 Edition of Destroy All Humans! is $400. Sadly, all major retailers are currently sold out of this, at least within the United States. If more release, this article will be updated.
Indeed, it's certainly within the realm of possibility that these items will once again become available at some point in the future. After all, the game is still quite a few months away from launch, meaning there's plenty of time for more to be manufactured and prepared. In case that does happen, here's everything that comes with the Cyberpunk 2077 Collector's Edition:
Physical items include the special Collector's Edition box, the case with game discs, a collectible Steelbook, a 25cmx10" statue of V leaping off a motorcycle, a hardcover art book, a metal pin set, a Quadra V-Tech metal keychain, an annotated copy of A Visitor's Guide to Night City sealed away in an NCPD Evidence bag, embroidered patches, the World Compendium, Postcards and map of Night City, and some Cyberpunk 2077 stickers.
Digital items are the same as the Standard Edition, and the game comes with the soundtrack, online booklet, sourcebook, and wallpapers. It would seem that CD Projekt Red's approach to Cyberpunk 2077's release is about quantity, considering the sheer number of items that come with both the Standard Editions and Collector's Editions.
It's also noteworthy that there aren't many more editions of the game available, as it's not uncommon for major games to have quite a number. This is likely related to just how much comes with each of the editions outlined above.
CD Projekt Red has not only been generous with what is included in the Cyberpunk 2077 editions, as the developer has been incredibly forthcoming with details on the game as well. For example, the developer has recently spoken about DLC plans, how crafting will work, the new cutscenes, the Pacific district gangs, and more. Most of this came to light during the "deep dive" gameplay that was recently shown, but one major piece of information broke just before that. Specifically, it was revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 removed gender choice at the start of the game in order to give players more options with character creation.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on April 16, 2020, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
