CD PROJEKT RED said that during this Night City Wire, they will talk about new radio stations coming to the game, learn more about Idris Elba’s character Solomon Reed, discuss gameplay, new abilities, and more.
Phantom Liberty is a new spy-thriller adventure for Cyberpunk 2077. Players will return as cyber-enhanced mercenary V and embark on a new high-stakes mission of espionage and intrigue to save the NUS President. In the dangerous district of Dogtown, V will have to forge new alliances within a web of shattered loyalties and sinister political machinations.
