Cyberpunk 2077 is an upcoming first-person shooter from CD Projekt RED. You may recognize the name from the excellent The Witcher franchise. While the title has been delayed towards the end of the year, it hasn't stopped the promotional train from going full speed ahead.

Yesterday, the developer released a new image of the female protagonist, also called "V," which showcases a new look. The asset appears to be more refined and intricate. It seems like CD Projekt RED is finalizing the title so last-minute tweaks are being made.

According to GamesRadar+, if you get the physical copy, you can flip over the cover to reveal the female character.

Lastly, Xbox Series X owners will be happy to know that if they buy the game on Xbox One, the title will be upgraded for free for Xbox Series X when the device launches or the patch is available.
