Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty Preorders Are Now Live
Preorders are now available for the highly anticipated expansion of Cyberpunk 2077, titled “Phantom Liberty,” scheduled for release in September. Offering a thrilling spy-thriller narrative set in the dangerous underbelly of Night City’s most lethal district, this new addition to the game combines the gritty atmosphere of “Escape from New York” with Cyberpunk’s trademark dark and futuristic style. Initially, preorders are exclusively live on the Xbox Store, but keep an eye out for updates regarding availability on PlayStation and PC platforms.
Mark your calendars for September 26, as that’s when Phantom Liberty will officially launch for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. The expansion comes at a price of $30 and includes a fantastic bonus—a brand new vehicle. While Cyberpunk 2077 already boasts an impressive array of vehicles, obtaining them often requires a significant amount of in-game currency. However, by preordering Phantom Liberty, players will receive the formidable Quadra Sport R-7 “Vigilante,” a sleek and powerful ride that seamlessly blends muscle car aesthetics with Cyberpunk’s distinctive style.
In the gripping narrative of Phantom Liberty, the orbital shuttle carrying the President of the New United States of America is tragically shot down over Dogtown. It falls upon the protagonist, V, to infiltrate this city-within-a-city and, with the assistance of the digital manifestation of Johnny Silverhand, portrayed by the iconic Keanu Reeves, extract the NUSA leader before it’s too late.
Aside from an immersive and substantial new story, Phantom Liberty introduces extensive changes to the game mechanics. The perk and skill tree systems have undergone a complete overhaul, car combat is being introduced, and nearly every aspect of the game has been fine-tuned and tweaked. If you’re curious about the depth of these upgrades, be sure to check out GameSpot’s hands-on impressions of Phantom Liberty. Additionally, Idris Elba lends his voice and likeness to the character of FIA Agent Solomon Reed, adding another layer of star power to the expansion.
It’s worth noting that Phantom Liberty will be the sole expansion released for Cyberpunk 2077, as CD Projekt Red has shifted its focus to the development of the highly-anticipated sequel. With work officially underway on the next installment, fans can eagerly anticipate future announcements.
