In a recent Night City Wire stream, CD Projekt RED announced that Cyberpunk 2077’s Update 2.0 will be going live on September 21, while also showcasing some of the builds that players will be able to work towards courtesy of its revamped progression mechanics. But of course, the main course at the stream was the action RPG’s upcoming expansion, Phantom Liberty, and plenty of details were revealed for it as well, courtesy of Idris Elba himself, who’s playing Solomon Reed, a key character in the expansion.

In a behind-the-scenes video, Elba speaks about Reed, an NUSA secret operative who’s had a long and eventful life, which is only going to get more eventful in Phantom Liberty, and how, given his background, he’s going to be hard to figure out as a character. Whether or not you’ll trust him when you step back into the shoes of V will, of course, be your choice, though Reed is certainly looking like an interesting character.

In another behind-the-scenes video, Elba also reacts to Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty’s newest cinematic trailer, where he discusses the relationship between Reed and fellow agent Songbird, who used to be his protege- though things between them took a turn for the worse during a fateful event seven years before the beginning of the expansion.

CD Projekt RED has also offered a sneak peak of Phantom Liberty’s theme song, which is also called Phantom Liberty, and is composed by Polish musician Dawid Podsiadło. Meanwhile, during the stream, the developer also revealed two new radio stations that will be added to the game with Phantom Liberty- Dark Star Radio, where you can tune in to catch some “dark” music from around the world (including two tracks by Idris Elba himself), and Impulse Radio, a DJ set composed entirely of unreleased tracks and dance and club music by Elba.

Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty launches on September 26 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
