Cyberpunk 2077's Phantom Liberty Expansion

The Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty expansion is set to overhaul Cyberpunk 2077, with players able to fully redesign their characters and access new areas in Night City. The RPG game also raises the level cap to 70, meaning you can experience the game-changing expansion without having to create a new character.

We’ve had the chance to play some Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty gameplay, and we’ve been impressed with the changes to Netrunning and the sense of a more alive world around us. It’s looking like the game’s first expansion will be game-changer for players, improving on Cyberpunk 2077’s base game in every way.

In an official post from developer CD Projekt Red, we’re told that the Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty release date is September 26, giving players plenty of time to jump back into the game and experience the overhaul for themselves.

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty Respec Details

First off, we have some Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty respec details, as we’re told that the expansion will allow players to fully redesign their characters, which is new to the game. It’s not just cosmetic changes either, as we’re told that “you can overhaul your skills, gear, and even your background.”

You won’t need to create a new character either, as the level cap has been raised to 70. This means that you won’t have to worry about a brand-new character being at a disadvantage when jumping into the new areas in Night City.

Another huge change is to Netrunning, which has been completely overhauled. Now, when you queue a hack, you can also queue the next one, meaning you don’t have to wait between each one. Also, the Netrunner Booster is a new feature that provides you with unlimited RAM for a limited time, which should make things easier in Cyberpunk 2077’s hacking sections.

Elsewhere, the team has said that they’ve improved NPC reactions, making them tougher to kill and destroy, and V now has a new animation when leaving the Ripperdoc.

Early players have already jumped into the game and are singing praises of these changes, with one saying: “This is the Cyberpunk I always wanted.” Another says that the expansion “already feels like a new game,” and a third says that they “can’t wait to experience it on hard mode.”

We’ll be jumping back into Cyberpunk 2077 ourselves on the Phantom Liberty release date, so be sure to check back here to see what we think.
