The Phantom Liberty teaser that was unveiled at The Game Awards 2022, also included an English actor. The new DLCs won’t be available to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users. Which is unfortunate because this is good news for current-generation players.
Along with a sneak peek at new characters, foes, and vehicles, the Mantis Blades are back. However, they have not shown a release date or a price are shown in the trailer. Although the DLC will cost money, fans can predict that it will be close to $30. The creators are discontinuing support for this DLC for previous generation consoles following a disastrous launch on those systems. This indicates that owners of the PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC are the only ones who can obtain the DLC.
Before Elba made his big reveal, that was dealing with the Canceller of the Apocalypse. The moment his actual voice came through. Elba has previously used a subtle enough accent to throw off. He’s a wonderful choice for a friend or an enemy. His bulk alone provides him the power to fight Night City’s most formidable fixers. He no longer operates according to a strategy. That values beliefs held in the real world over a domain in which he has the power to judge and rule over those below him, however, and has long since abandoned that reality.
With new environments, adversaries, a vicious new finisher with the Mantis Blades, and – with just the right amount of tease – Idris Elba’s character, who appears to be a government agent helping the player on a covert operation, it certainly looks exciting. Cyberpunk 2077 is already a largely narrative-driven game with A-list talent in its cast. It’s not surprising to see a significant focus on the story in Phantom Liberty. But it’s undoubtedly interesting to hear an actor as renowned as Elba praise its story.
