Now that Cyberpunk 2077 is widely recognised as a good game following its massive updates, the development team has been hard at work trying to make it even better. CD Projekt Red unveiled the Phantom Liberty DLC back in September 2022 and people want to know when its release date is scheduled for.


The "spy-thriller expansion for Cyberpunk 2077" brings back Keanu Reeves and throws none other than Idris Elba into Night City. An "all new district of Night City", nonetheless. Whether or not it'll be the New Vegas of the Cyberpunk universe, we can only speculate - but it's looking exciting.

If you can't wait to return to Night City and see what Johnny Silverhand (Keanu Reeves) and Solomon Reed (Idris Elba) are up to, you're in the right place.

Read on to find out everything there is to know about the Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC, including its release date, pre-order information, story details, and to watch a trailer.

When is the Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC release date?

The Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC release date will occur in 2023, the developers have confirmed, although they haven't specified a precise date.

Seeing as the base game was delayed a number of times and ultimately launched with a lot of bugs, you can understand why they might not want to pre-announce an exact date until they're ready this time around.

Can I pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC?

It doesn't look like there is any way to pre-order the Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC just yet, but we'll be sure to update this page when that changes.

This does seem to be a paid DLC rather than a free one, so we would expect those pre-order pages to go up eventually.

Which consoles and platforms can play Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC?

The Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC will only be available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC and Google Stadia.

That is to say, you won't be able to play the Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC on PS4 or Xbox One.

The developers have promised on the game's official website that "owners of the Xbox One X - Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition Bundle will receive a reimbursement for the expansion in the form of Microsoft Store credits. Please stay tuned for more details about this procedure."

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC gameplay and story details

The Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC has been described as a spy thriller, and the trailer gives us some clues regarding the story.

It looks like the player character, V, will be swearing an oath to work with the New United States of America. And this oath, according to Keanu Reeves's Johnny Silverhand, is a bad idea.

The DLC will take players to a new region of Night City, and although we haven't seen gameplay footage yet, the trailer seems to promise lots of high-octane action and at least one dramatic helicopter crash.

  • Gavin Drea - V (Male)
  • Cherami Leigh - V (Female)
  • Keanu Reeves - Johnny Silverhand
  • Idris Elba - Solomon Reed
