Developer Astrolabe has announced that a new demo update for the co-op floating island survival sandbox game Aloft is now available on PC via Steam
At The Video Game Awards, beloved developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) revealed the latest gameplay footage for Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty — the first, and unfortunately last, expansion for our favorite cyberpunk game. The expansion is set to release in 2023 and will include a major addition to the cast: Idris Elba.
That's right. CDPR confirmed that Elba will be playing Solomon Reed, an FIA agent for NUSA in this upcoming covert-ops themed expansion. Set in a brand new district in Night City, Elba will be making his debut among a cast of other returning characters, including the fan-favorite, Keanu Ree— whoops, Johnny Silverhand.
But the biggest question remains: when exactly does this expansion take place?
In the recently uploaded gameplay trailer, there are obvious references to Rogue, Johnny Silverhand, and of course, V. This means that the expansion most likely takes place before the final mission of the last game.
Personally, I had hoped that it would follow the pacing of the Blood and Wine expansion for CDPR's other RPG, The Witcher 3, and take place some time after the final events of the last game. Without revealing any spoilers, I think that would have been a great way to provide fans with a bit of closure on the fate of V and Johnny.
But who knows? A man can dream. Perhaps a third teaser will feature other beloved characters, hinting at the game taking place after the events of the first game. If the CDPR Gods are kind, it'd also be nice to get an in-game reference to a certain someone from the popular Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime series (but that might be wishful thinking...).
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is set to release on next-gen consoles and PC sometime in 2023.
