Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty brings a new, graphically intensive district called Dogtown, so you may want to take a look at these optimised PC settings from Hardware Unboxed.

Cyberpunk 2077's expansion Phantom Liberty is finally out and as expected it's a proper eye candy that will use every bit of power your PC has. The new district called Dogtown packs even more detail than the base game as it's exclusive to next-gen, showcasing just how good the game can look when its not held back by last-gen consoles.

Anyway, since Phantom Liberty is very intensive on the GPU, you probably want to tweak the graphical settings to get more performance and reach that 60 FPS sweet spot.The optimised settings below are from tech channel Hardware Unboxed, who made a great job of explaining every setting in detail so definitely check their video for all the information. But if you'd like a TL; DW version, read on below.
