Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty DLC Review – Espionage, Action, and Glitches in Night City
In the midst of the dystopian wasteland surrounding Night City, a neon-lit pyramid emerges on the horizon, overshadowed by the bleak reality of homeless populations. The streets are a grim tableau of wrecked cars and the intimidating presence of private army soldiers. Amidst this chaos, the ever-acerbic Johnny Silverhand maintains his nonchalant demeanor. It’s Cyberpunk 2077, and even in its new content, Night City remains a dystopian enigma.
The latest expansion, “Phantom Liberty,” beckons our edgerunner, V, into the newly-added district of Dogtown, a territory dominated by Kurt Hansen and his formidable private army, Barghest. Dogtown is a combat zone, a desolate battleground where relentless skirmishes rage between Barghest and those who dare oppose them.
V’s journey to this inhospitable realm is driven by the promise of a cure for their terminal illness, offered by a mysterious netrunner known as Songbird, or So Mi. Skepticism abounds, but when So Mi demonstrates her extraordinary skills by temporarily vanishing Johnny Silverhand, it becomes clear she is no ordinary hacker.
