It’s almost time to dig back into CD Projekt Red’s techno-epic Cyberpunk 2077, with Phantom Liberty. The expansion pack hits in September.
Cloak and dagger (and Idris Elba)
Much like some other large-scale games in recent years, CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 came a long way after release. It kind of had to of course, thanks to a plethora of bugs it was packing, but post-launch development made Cyberpunk into something pretty special at this point. It’s about to get a big boost too, with not only some fresh star-power, but also a massive new storyline.
That’s what you’ll find in Phantom Liberty this fall, which adds actor Idris Elba as federal agent Solomon Reed, who’ll star alongside Keanu Reeves’ Johnny Silverhand. Not that you’ll play as either one of those gents, as players will once again take on the role of V.
As him or her, they’ll head into newly revealed, and natural quite dangerous district of Dogtown, for an espionage-flavored mission to save the President of the United States herself.
The full-fledged expansion to Cyberpunk 2077 features a hard-hitting spy-thriller adventure to embark on set in a brand new location. Over the course of the new story players will meet and work with new characters, including FIA sleeper agent Solomon Reed, played by Idris Elba. Among the returning cast is Keanu Reeves, reprising his role as rebel-rockerboy Johnny Silverhand. The expansion also comes with a slew of new content, including new quests, gigs, and gig types; new vehicles, tech, cyberware, and weapons; a brand new Relic skill tree for even more freedom for crafting one’s own unique playstyle, and more.CD Projekt Red press release
As mentioned too, we finally know the release date for this new future-epic. CD Projekt Red has revealed that Phantom Liberty will arrive for the Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC this September 26th. Just remember, you’ll need the base game if you want to play.
