Idris Elba as Solomon Reed in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty

Today CD Projekt RED released the live-action trailer of the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 expansion Phantom Liberty, starring popular actor Idris Elba.

The actor, who plays legendary agent Solomon Kane in the game, is seen sitting at a bar, and providing some wisdom on how to win in Night City when the deck is stacked against you.

Of course, you have to augment yourself and become faster, stronger, and better, but ultimately, it's who you know and who you can trust that really matters.

The trailer alternates live-action with gameplay scenes, and Idris Elba's acting is definitely as cool as it can possibly be. 

You can check it out below to see what I mean. 

Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Just yesterday, the game received the massive update 2.0, which added plenty of highly-requested elements to the game. 

Its expansion Phantiom Liberty will release on September 26, but it will skip PS4 and Xbox One to release only on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. 

If you'd like to see more of Idris Elba, you can enjoy the cinematic trailer released a few days ago, in which he unleashes the charm of Solomon Kane. 

You can already read our review of Phantom Liberty in which our Jason Rodriguez defined it as "an exhilarating romp in the dystopian setting of Night City and Dogtown," also mentioning that "it’s further bolstered by numerous changes from Update 2.0."
