Cyberpunk 2077 New “Phantom Liberty” Expansion Announced, Edgerunners Update Available Now

During the recent live-streamed Night City Wire event, CD Projekt RED announced the upcoming next-gen exclusive “Phantom Liberty” expansion for Cyberpunk 2077. The expansion will introduce a new area within Night City as well as a slew of new characters, including the return of Keanu Reeves, who will reprise his role as Johnny Silverhand. It will launch sometime in 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Stadia. Additionally, CD Projekt RED also revealed details on the game’s new Patch 1.6, “Edgerunners Update”, which is a tie-in with the upcoming Netflix anime adaptation based on the game. As part of the update, players will be able to wear the iconic jacket worn by protagonist David Martinez as well as a shotgun used by a character from the show. The update also features the new Wardrobe system, the cross-platform progression function, and more. The game and update are available now for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, Epic Games, GOG, and Stadia.

The update’s full details via CD Projekt RED can be seen below:

The highly community-requested transmog system, or Wardrobe, is now accessible from any of V’s apartments and safehouses. Players will have the ability to save up to six outfits that can then be viewed and selected from the inventory. Alongside this comes a cross-platform progression function, meaning saves can be uploaded to the cloud and seamlessly continued on a different platform.

With this update also comes the ability to play Roach Race at any of the arcade cabinets throughout Night City. This minigame stars the beloved figure of Roach as she gallops, jumps, and glitches through locations from The Witcher series of games in an endlessly scrolling 2D platformer. High-scorers can expect prizes in the form of Eurodollars and items, and those who wish to play outside of Cyberpunk 2077 can also download Roach Race for free on iOS and Android. The mobile version of the game, developed in collaboration with Crunching Koalas, allows players from across the globe to compete in online leaderboards.

Another animal receiving a bigger role thanks to the Edgerunners Update is Nibbles the cat, whom players have already had the chance to meet and even adopt. With this update, Nibbles is now available to pose in Photo Mode. Apart from these features, there are also additional weapons, quests, and some new secrets to uncover in Night City. The latest REDstreams, which picked up after the conclusion of Night City Wire, was dedicated to showcasing an in-depth look at what’s coming to the game.
