Cyberpunk 2077 is getting its first and only expansion with the Phantom Liberty DLC. After the rocky base launch, the new offering will hopefully satisfy players in continuing the game’s story: we’ve got the latest on Phantom Liberty’s release window, story, trailers, and more.

Cyberpunk 2077 was first released in December 2020, with the launch of the game going less than smoothly for developer CD Projekt Red. Now almost two years later, the game has mostly been patched and fixed up, no longer suffering from the game-breaking issues it had on release.
