Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty Release Date
The new ‘spy-thriller’ themed DLC was revealed during a Night City Wire broadcast along with the aptly named Edgerunners update(Patch 1.6), which includes a tie-in with the recently dropped Netflix anime adaptation of the same name. Phantom Liberty is set to release in 2023, with no exact date confirmed yet. Given the large scale of the Edgerunners update, it could be some months before we hear more, which leaves players ample time to make their way through the gargantuan base game content.

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty Trailers
Night City punks have been treated to just the one announcement trailer so far for Phantom Liberty, which sees main character V questionably pledging their allegiance to the New United States of America. Being in service to the government is punk now? We’re eager to see what CD Projekt Red is setting up narratively. Also, subtly confirmed by the end of the trailer, it’s important to note that the Phantom Liberty expansion is next-gen only, meaning PS4 and Xbox One players will need to upgrade to experience it.

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty Gameplay Details
Players were treated to details regarding gameplay updates and road mapping during the latest Night City Wire Edgerunners Special from game director Gabe Amatangelo, which included mention of exciting and highly requested overhauls to both the police system and vehicle combat. Many players criticised the lack of cop presence throughout Night City in the base game, and this looks to be finally making MaxTac a real threat for V to contend with.
Amatangelo also added there would be: “A new kind of gameplay loop for melee. A bunch of new actions in the perk tree. More cyberware-feeling cyberware”. More options mean more ways to wreak havoc in Night City. CD Projekt Red knows it, and we're here for it.
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is coming to PC, PS5, Xbox Series X and S, and Stadia.
