The first and last expansion for Cyberpunk 2077, the MGS-styled-in-name, Phantom Liberty, is already attracting some keen interest from fans, us included. And today during The Game Awards CD Projekt RED revealed that Stringer Bell himself, Idris Elba, had joined the cast for its next giant piece of content.
The teaser shown at the annual awards gala gives players an all new look at Night City’s Dogtown, where the expansion will be primarily set, as well as flashes of gameplay and brand new additions. The teaser also reveals new characters, chief among them Solomon Reed.
Played by actor Idris Elba (Luther, Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, The Suicide Squad), who’s joining the cast of Phantom Liberty alongside Keanu Reeves as Johnny Silverhand, Reed is a veteran New United States of America agent, and apparently the only person players can trust to help them fulfill an impossible mission of espionage and survival. Following the teaser’s climax, the actor appeared in a special video message directed at the audience and gamers worldwide, commenting on the character of Reed and his role in Phantom Liberty's story.
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is headed to PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X next year, with a proper release date set to be revealed soon, so stay tued.
