Eager fans awaiting the release of Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty DLC can look forward to “hands-on sessions” this summer, according to developer CD Projekt Red.
Despite the initial controversy surrounding the game’s launch, CDPR’s dystopian RPG has established itself as a respectable entry in the spy espionage genre, boasting an 86 Metacritic score on PC.
Phantom Liberty: First Major Expansion
Slated for a 2023 release, Phantom Liberty marks Cyberpunk 2077’s inaugural expansion—demonstrating CDPR’s commitment to the game even after the initial backlash.
The December 2020 launch tarnished the developer’s stellar reputation, which was built on the success of The Witcher 3.
Fortunately, numerous patches have significantly improved Cyberpunk, allowing many fans to forgive and forget.
Summer Game Fest Showcase
The upcoming Summer Game Fest offers an opportunity for attendees to preview the expansion.
A recent Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter post revealed that “press and content creators” will be offered a hands-on experience, with more sessions for the general fan community planned for later.
A user asked for clarification about “hands-on opportunities,” and an official response confirmed that the community would have the chance to “play the game before release.”
Fans are thrilled to get a sneak peek at Phantom Liberty.
Event Details and More Cyberpunk News
The Summer Game Fest, scheduled for June 8, will be a hybrid online and in-person event.
