The Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC release can't get here soon enough, as we can't wait to dive into CD Projekt Red's spy-thriller expansion starring none other than Idris Elba.


Originally unveiled back in September 2022, Keanu Reeves is back in an all new district of Night City. This isn't a run-of-the-mill DLC - it's a full-blown expansion with many hours of new gameplay to complete.

Ahead of the game's launch, CD Projekt Red has been touring with it, giving fans a chance to try the expansion out. The initial response has been positive, and it's safe to say this won't be a repeat of the initial janky launch of Cyberpunk 2077.

Read on to find out everything there is to know about the Phantom Liberty release date, where to pre-order, what platforms you can play on, and to learn some gameplay and story details.

When is the Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC release date?

The Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC release date is 26th September 2023, the developers confirmed at the Xbox Games Showcase in June.

Seeing as the base game was delayed a number of times - and ultimately launched with a lot of bugs - you can understand why they didn't announce that date until quite late in the process.

Can I pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC?

Yes, you can pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC now!

Pre-orders are digital only, though, so you'll need to head to the digital storefront of your choice to pre-purchase the expansion.

Pre-orders cost £24.99 on all platforms, and you can pick up a bundle containing the base game and DLC, as you need to own Cyberpunk 2077 to play Phantom Liberty.

All pre-orders also come with the Quadra Sport R-7 "Vigilante" vehicle early unlock bonus.

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 a tonne of gameplay footage yet, the trailer seems to promise lots of high-octane action and at least one dramatic helicopter crash.

Thanks to Gamespot, we know that Phantom Liberty has "the biggest budget when it comes to expansion packs" released by CD Projekt Red. It's set to be a big one, folks.

We're expecting to see more of the game in action at Gamescom 2023, so do keep those eyes peeled if you're still not sold on Phantom Liberty.

Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty DLC cast

As well as Keanu Reeves and Idris Elba, Phantom Liberty has a pretty killer cast. We'll share the full list (that we know at the time of writing) below:

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

It's great to see that Reeves and both performers of V will be returning, joining Elba in what looks to be a great story.
