CD Projekt Red has confirmed that more information about the upcoming Phantom Liberty expansion for Cyberpunk 2077 will be revealed in June. The announcement was made via Twitter, but no further details were provided. It is speculated that the reveal may include gameplay footage, as the only teasers so far have been two trailers, one of which features actor Idris Elba.
Timing of the Reveal

Phantom Liberty Expansion
The Phantom Liberty expansion is set to launch later in 2023 for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. While details about the expansion remain scarce, the teasers suggest that it could take a more psychedelic and surreal approach to gameplay than the original game.

Path tracing is a technology that enhances lighting and reflections, resulting in improved graphics and immersion. The update will be available for free to all players.
