Guide for Cyberpunk 2077 – How To Play Without Steam
This is useful if Steam deletes your install of Cyberpunk 2077, as has happened to me.
This guide will show you how.
1. How To
Exit Steam if you have it running.
Navigate to the Cyberpunk 2077 Steam install folder. This will be in steamapps>common.
Double click REDprelauncher.exe
Click Play in the window that appears.
You can now play the game without the need for Steam to be running.
You can also make a backup copy of the game by copying the Cyberpunk 2077 Steam install folder and pasting it to another location on your computer. This has you covered if Steam bugs out and deletes your original Steam CP 2077 install.
You can now play your DRM free backup copy.
Thanks to CDPR for making a truly DRM free PC game.

This was useful to me as I had to download Cyberpunk 2077 twice. The first time Steam deleted the game from my system for some reason. I have a slow internet connection, and this wasn’t very pleasant.
The second time I downloaded the game, I copied the entire game to another folder, so if Steam ever deletes it again, I can play the game DRM free whilst I’m waiting the tens of hours it will take to redownload the whole game on Steam.
