In the teaser trailer, it is revealed that V will once again be the main protagonist. Interestingly, V gives an oath to faithfully serve the “new United States of America”.

The Phantom Liberty expansion will also bring a new area to Night City, oh, and Keanu Reeves will return as Johnny Silverhand. In the trailer, Silverhand informs V that swearing allegiance to the new United States of America is a “bad idea”.

Not everyone will play the expansion

Sadly, not everyone will get to play Phantom Liberty. The expansion is only releasing for PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S as well as Google Stadia. Meaning that the PS4 and Xbox One have been left behind. At this time, no reason for this decision has been given.

However, considering the poor state of Cyberpunk 2077 on last-gen consoles, it’s not difficult to understand why this might be the case. Let’s just hope that the Phantom Liberty expansion has a smooth launch on PC and new-gen consoles.
