Cyberpunk Phantom Liberty DLC Announces Another Celebrity Actor; Idris Elba

At the Game Awards 2022, developer CD PROJEKT RED debuted a new trailer for the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 expansion DLC, Phantom Liberty. In addition to the Dogtown district, the new area of Night City where the story will be set, the new character Solomon Reed was revealed. Reed is portrayed by Idris Elba, who will join returning actor Keanu Reeves in reprising the character of Johnny Silverhand.

Reed appears to be the player’s primary ally in the story of Phantom Liberty, an agent of the New United States of America, and will assist V in “an impossible mission of espionage and survival.” Elba also appeared in a special message following the trailer to discuss his character.

Given the appearance of Silverhand, Phantom Liberty more than likely will take place before the end of the original game’s story, though if it will also affect the ending options remains unknown.

Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty will release in 2023, exclusively for Xbox Series S and X, PlayStation 5, and PC. The expansion will not be available in the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One versions. However, both of these versions support a free current-generation upgrade for owners of ninth-generation platforms.
