Johnny Silverhand returns to Cyberpunk 2077
While CD Projekt Red didn’t give out any extensive details about the expansion, they did release a teaser trailer. We can see V, the protagonist, taking an oath of serving the New United States of America and the voice of Johnny Silverhand in his head warning that the oath is a bad idea. Maybe it’s just Johnny’s voice that’s returning and not the character but we’re sure no one will complain if we see him making an actual return!
We can expect more information on Phantom Liberty as its release date draws closer.
A new patch adds cross-progression
Meanwhile, CDPR released a new patch to add cross-progression between platforms, new gigs, and, content inspired by Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, and more. Patch 1.6 brings 3 new gigs- Concrete Cage Trap, Desperate Measures, and Nasty Hangover. Moreover, 6 new firearms and 5 new melee weapons have been added to the game.
