- The full map of the new Cyberpunk 2077 expansion, Phantom Liberty, has surfaced online ahead of its release, confirming the size of the Dogtown district.
- The leak reveals one of the story missions in the DLC called “Dog Eat Dog,” hinting at an early plot beat taking place in the Pacifica Stadium.
- The expansion will introduce Idris Elba as Solomon Reed, a jaded FIA agent who will assist the player character, V, in navigating the new area of Night City.
The full map of Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty surfaced online, emerging mere days ahead of the expansion’s much-anticipated release. Apart from confirming the size of the Dogtown district that Phantom Liberty will add to Cyberpunk 2077, this leak also offers a small hint of one story mission from the upcoming DLC.
The first and only expansion for Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled to launch on Tuesday, September 26. Apart from seeing Keanu Reeves return as Johnny Silverhand, Phantom Liberty will also introduce Idris Elba in the role of Solomon Reed, a jaded FIA agent who will help V navigate through a spy thriller-like conspiracy across a new area of Night City called Dogtown.
And while CD Projekt Red has been keeping most details about Dogtown close to the chest, the full map of the new Phantom Liberty district still managed to leak online a week ahead of the DLC’s release. The recently surfaced screenshot serves as yet another confirmation that Dogtown will be a subdistrict of Pacifica, whose borders apparently got redrawn to accommodate the new neighborhood. Namely, the Pacifica Stadium that was part of Coastview in the base game now clearly falls inside the boundaries of Dogtown.
The leak also reveals the name of one Phantom Liberty quest, Dog Eat Dog, which is visible in the upper-right corner of the newly surfaced screenshot. The mission prompt is instructing V to “go to the construction site,” which the map icon places inside the Pacifica Stadium. Given that context, it’s plausible that Dog Eat Dog is one of Phantom Liberty‘s earliest quests, not least because the Air Force One crash that triggers the events of the Cyberpunk 2077 expansion appears to take place in that same location.
This story quest, or “main job” in the game’s jargon, will hence presumably take place before Hole In The Sky, another mission that was showcased as part of the Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty SGF demo back in June. The leaked map screenshot also reveals the official logo of Barghest, the faction controlling the majority of Dogtown. The ferocious hound head graphic was already seen in some past Phantom Liberty teasers as a spray-painted wall tag. But while those promos featured a black variant of the logo, the leaked emblem is colored bright green.
While Phantom Liberty will infuse CDPR’s dystopian RPG with hours of new content come next week, Cyberpunk 2077 fans might want to reinstall the game no later than September 21. Namely, that date marks the launch of the RPG’s massive 2.0 update, which will introduce new perks, vehicle combat, redesigned cyberware, and a revamped police system, all free of charge.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
