Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty - Idris Elba

Today CD Projekt RED has a lot to share about the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 expansion Phantom Liberty, on top of the upcoming 2.0 update, which promises to be massive.

First of all, we get to take a look at the cinematic trailer, starring Idris Elba, who plays legendary secret agent Solomon Reed in the expansion.

You can check him out below. 

Next is a behind-the scene trailer starring Idris Elba himself.

We also get another video in which Elba reacts directly to the cinematic trailer. 

Another video stars Dawid Podsiadło, who performs the theme song of the expansion, aptly titled "Phantom Liberty."

Yet, the expansion isn't the only thing we're getting soon. A few days before fans can expect Update 2.0, and specifically on September 21. 

It includes vehicle combat, a massive overhaul of tghe perks and skill trees, and much more. 

To help out in planning your perfect Cyberpunk, CD Projekt released a full-fledged web-based build planner, and you can find it on the official website.

Speaking of builds, we get three videos showcasing three possible setups. The first is the so-called "bullet-time Ninja."

Next is something entirely different, the Hack & Slash Netrunner. 

Lastly, we take a look at the Savage Slugger Solo. 

One thing is for sure: looks like Cyberpunk 2077 fans are eating well this month. 

Phantom Liberty releases on September 26 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. 

If you'd like to see more of the expansion you can check out a deep dive focusing on the location Dogtown aired in June during the Xbox Game Showcase Extended on top of a trailer showcased during the main Xbox Game Showcase itself, when the release date was announced. 

You should also take a look at our hands-on preview from Summer Game Fest in which our Andrew Otton described Phantom Liberty as a" no brainer for Cyberpunk 2077 fans" adding that "The premise is whacky fun, the new setting of Dogtown is full of cool potential, and if you haven’t played in a bit, you will have the benefit of a ton of patches and updates on top of what Phantom Liberty adds to the game."
