Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC release date confirmed for September 2023
CD Projekt Red showed off the biggest look yet at the Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC expansion at the 2023 Xbox Games Showcase. A new trailer lays out the stakes for V, Johnny Silverhand, and the New United States. It also confirms the expansion's release date: September 26, 2023.
Check out the trailer below:
The Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty trailer sets up the story more clearly than earlier teasers: V has been contacted by "Songbird", an agent of the New United States of America (NUSA), and offered a job: Rescue NUSA President Meyers from "Dogtown", a hostile and lawless district of Night City. V's incentive is an apparent "cure" for V's terminal condition: The cybernetic implant that holds Johnny Silverhand's personality is a death sentence for V, and Songbird might have a solution.
The trailer also shows off sequences with V escorting Meyers from the wreckage of "Space Force One", as well as contacting Solomon Reed, an agent played by actor Idris Elba. Reed appears to have his own plans for the President, though.
The Phantom Liberty DLC launches for Cyberpunk 2077 on September 26. The base game is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, and PC.
