Gamers scammed out of major upcoming update – here’s how to get your money back | The Sun

XBOX owners are furious after being scammed out of a pre-order for a major triple-A game.

Originally released in 2020, players have been waiting three years to redeem their codes.

In June 2020, a special edition Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X was announced with a number of Cyberpunk 2077 accessories.

Players could purchase a charging dock, storage expansion, and headset, all with a Cyberpunk 2077 theme.

The limited edition console came with a Cyberpunk 1TB Xbox One X, a Cyberpunk Xbox One controller, and download codes for Cyberpunk 2077 and the upcoming DLC.

The Phantom Liberty DLC starring Keanu Reeves and Idris Elba is finally ready to release on September 26, 2023.

However, the announcement came as a shock to the limited edition console owners due to a catch.

The upcoming DLC will only be available for current-gen consoles, meaning Xbox Series X|S, PS5 and PC.

This means that the special edition Xbox One X owners won’t be able to play it on that console.

Thankfully, CD Projekt is hoping to set things right for those who purchased the pricey console.

In a statement given to Maxi-Geek, the company hopes to compensate players for the DLC.

The quote reads: “Owners of the Xbox One X – Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition Bundle will receive a reimbursement for the expansion in the form of Microsoft Store credits.”

Microsoft Store credits will amount to the price of the DLC which is £24.99 ($29.99).

The money will go directly into players’ Xbox wallet, and can be used to purchase other games.

How players can claim their reimbursement hasn’t yet been revealed, but CD Projekt is expected to formally announce details of the scheme soon.
