Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty
The big new DLC for cyberpunk is here — The phantom liberty for CD Projekt Red’s sci-fi RPG ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ will be out tomorrow, September 26th. If you cant wait to explore the new neighbourhood of Dogtown or if you want to run into Idris Elba on DLC.
Do you recall how many dildos could be found in the original Cyberpunk 2077? These were everywhere; we even made a “how many pigeons can we spot while driving?” game with them because you just couldn’t drive two blocks in Night City without finding one lying around, at which point CDPR had to go and patch out most of the damn things. The existence of lootable dildos wasn’t really the issue per se, they just stood as a prime example of where Cyberpunk 2077 went wrong in its blending of grand narrative and grungy go-go gadget humor. Phantom Liberty hopes to rectify this dildo malfunction, and after much reflection seems to have identified the brand of Cyberpunk narrative it wishes to craft…and hits it out of the park. By harmonising the punk rock energy of tabletop RPG inventor Mike Pondsmith with a masterful espionage narrative, all wrapped up in cutting edge graphics, Phantom Liberty embodies the very essence of what makes Cyberpunk 2077.
The storyline starts when President of the NSU crashes down in an autonomous zone of Night City known as Dogtown, and then NSU Secret Service recruit you to save her. And it is from there to where you will be introduced to this expansions two most crucial new characters, Christine Minji Chang playing the role of NUSA Hacker Song So-Mi, and the legend himself Idris Elba playing Solomon Reed who is a sle
Elba once more slips into the New York–ish drawl (he honed in playing Stringer Bell on HBO’s The Wire) but as an anti-hero. He is also definitely not phoning it in here, giving an absolutely engaging performance as the city’s top spy, someone you really wanna believe even if you know beyond doubt that he can never give it all away. Phantom Liberty has some big high-stakes and irreversible actions hinge on them, and Reed is exactly what makes those picks so hard to make.
Johnny Silverhand also shows once again in the form of Keanu Reeves. Or perhaps it was just years since I last played it, but I think Reeves feels really improved performance wise. Honestly, I believe it is because he gets better material in Phantom Liberty wherein his character can deliver less manifestos about fucking up the machine. Instead, the narrative is allowed to flesh this out and let Reeves tap into some of Silverhand’s melancholy: exploring this character who is an imprisoned revolutionary trapped in someone else’s skin. All the characters in this episode not only look unique but with actors such as Idris Elba, Keanu Reeves, and Jenjira Pongpanich, we can see better than ever the animation of their characters within this game, making them much alive than those in many AAA Performance and technology intersected just right with CDPR’s Cyberpunk 2077 to deliver something that can truly affect you. Wait till you meet Reed’s spy partner named Alex.
The bigger picture is certainly more coherent in Phantom Liberty though; there’s no mistaking the kind of narratives that can be spun in Night City. It is a city roamed with backroom deals and every type of criminals, and more than it’s fair share of asshats, and that is different in the scifihacker arena compared to the somber and operatic universe of Blade Runner and Ghost In. Cyberpunk 2077 is grunge and metal, and Phantom Liberty harnesses this wild energy into mature storytelling – something the outstanding animated Netflix show, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, also managed to capture.
Elevated by Elba’s and Chang’s respective performances, Phantom Liberty hits all the things I love in a Cyberpunk story: It focuses on just how grim hyper-capitalism has become; what it does to our spirits under the veneer of civilisation; technology which dehumanizes us even as it feeds us (and vice versa) — all through the cover of espionage. We cannot count on any individual in this world, where all aspects of the future have been sold out to robotic agencies both from corporations and governments. It wants to talk about more than I thought watching from the other side, more than I anticipated when starting with Cyberpunk 2077 the first time.
And similarly, they milk the spy stuff for all its worth. There are exciting moments where you’re channeling your best Ethan Hunt from Mission: Skyfall inspired, along with new face for you to fool your victims — impossible. I wondered how such a spy narrative would mesh with the game’s broader tale of various levelsof crime — on the seediest streets and in the grand executive suite — but the expansion Phantom Liberty reminds us that the state is also another component in this hyper-
This is serious shit, however every time the tale turns solemn… you can choose work with Mr. Hands ‘The Fixer,’ whose clients include the arm dealing asshole that got abducted or an old lady in love with the idiot’s boyfriend, who has come But make no mistake: CDPR is being a little bit nasty here as it’s incorporated the same complicated moral quandaries found during the core narrative storyline into these side-missions.

In my review of last years Cyberpunk Edgerunners , I opined that CDPR now had a design doc on which direction to take with CP ’77 , and this expansion proves the devs were ahead of themselves; they already knew what they wanted to do! It brings in far superior execution, sharp reframes on cyberpunk and dystopian tropes, an updated gameplay experience courtesy of their 2.0 patch , plus so much more…this is a whole new era for Cyberpunk 2077
