This has certainly been a long time coming. We’ve finally got our first look at Cyberpunk 2077’s upcoming expansion Phantom Liberty, plus news on the highly-coveted release date.
Phantom Liberty was announced last year. Described as a spy-thriller, the Cyberpunk 2077 expansion will centre around V, a cyberpunk for hire who swears allegiance to the New United States of America. Players, as V, will team up with FIA agent Solomon Reed to solve a high-profile case. At The Game Awards back in December, it was unveiled that Reed would be portrayed by the very popular Idris Elba. It’s quite the star-studded cast seeing as Keanu Reeves will return as Johnny Silverhand. It’s been radio silence so far this year but the wait is finally over, Cyberpunk fans. CD Projekt RED have lifted the lid on the project at tonight’s Xbox Showcase.
Take a look at the latest trailer for Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty below.
We finally know that Phantom Liberty is set to release on 26 September, plus CDPR revealed that V and Reed will be investigating the shooting down of the President of the New United States of America’s orbital shuttle over the deadliest district of Night City. It sounds as if your choices will impact exactly how the mystery unfolds which is an exciting prospect, plus Dogtown is obviously a brand new explorable area. Seeing as it's reportedly the deadliest neighbourhood in Night City, I expect that we’ll meet some interesting characters and encounter plenty of chaos.
As leaked earlier this week, the expansion will cost €29.99 in Europe. Here in the UK, you can grab the game for £24.99 while those of you in the US will be paying $29.99. It goes without saying that you’ll need the base game in order to play the expansion, but it looks as if a few digital storefronts are offering a bundle if you’re yet to try Cyberpunk 2077. GAMINGbible’s Ewan has already been hands-on with the game and is full of praise for the DLC.
Beyond Phantom Liberty, we know that a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077 is on the way. Currently codenamed Project Orion, the sequel will enter its research and development phase next year. It’s being worked on by CDPR’s new Boston and Vancouver based teams.
