IGN - Cyberpunk 2077 Adds a Key Part of the Edgerunners Anime With Its Phantom Liberty Expansion


Recommended Posts

CD Projekt Red has added a key part of the Edgerunners anime to Cyberpunk 2077 with the Phantom Liberty update.

As reported by VGC, an overhaul to the capacity system forces players to consider the risk of cyberpsychosis when installing new cyberware.

Featured as a key plot point in Netflix's Cyberpunk: Edgeunners, cyberpsychosis affects people who install too much tech onto their feeble human bodies, potentially turning them into mindless killing machines.

Signs of this can perhaps be seen early on in the Phantom Liberty trailer released during the Xbox Games Showcase, where protagonist V seemingly loses control of her actions.

It's unclear exactly how the feature will work in Cyberpunk 2077, however, though a mod released last year added the ability to turn cyberpsycho in the PC version. It's perhaps unlikely an exact copy of this mod will be used, though CD Projekt Red isn't against the idea of using community mods in its releases, having previously done so with The Witcher 3.

A September 26 release date for Phantom Liberty was also announced, though unlike the base game the expansion is set for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC only. It's also worth noting this cyberpsychosis feature is seemingly a part of the general update 1.7 and won't necessarily require the purchasing of Phantom Liberty to access.
