The release date announcement comes courtesy of the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase, as actor Keanu Reeves appeared on stage to reveal the expansion’s new trailer.

The Phantom Liberty expansion is scheduled for release on September 26, 2023 and will be available exclusively on current generation consoles (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S) and Windows PC. CD Projekt Red has moved beyond previous-gen consoles to take better advantage of the power offered by modern hardware and deliver a true “next-gen” Cyberpunk experience.

With the latest updates (1.5 and above) to the game, the developers have greatly improved the gaming experience of Cyberpunk 2077 on current consoles (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One). However, according to CD Projekt Red, the scope and ambition of the upcoming DLC ​​is too much for older hardware.

The DLC is currently available for pre-order on all platforms for a base price of $29.99. For players who may also want to choose the base game along with the downloadable content, CD Projekt Red has packaged a bundle that is currently on sale for $53.24.

While information regarding the upcoming DLC ​​expansion’s narrative remains shrouded in mystery, the newly released trailer gives a faint hint of what players can expect with Phantom Liberty. The trailer showed the Dogtown area, the newly added part of the map, towards downtown Pacifica.

Stemming from dialogue between Johnny, V, and a newly added character, Solomon Reed, played by Idris Elba, players will be tasked with rescuing the President of the “New United States.”

CD Projekt Red has been shy about revealing much about the expansion’s story and how it will relate to V and Johnny’s personal journey. However, with the expansion launching in less than four months, players won’t have to wait long for answers.
