As a big fan of the Cyberpunk universe, I’m very excited to return to Night City and explore Phantom Liberty from Cyberpunk 2077. Before you can start Phantom Liberty, you have to fulfill a few requirements, so here is a guide on how to start Cyberpunk Phantom Liberty.
How to start playing Phantom Liberty in Cyberpunk 2077?
There are two options for starting Phantom Liberty expansion content in Cyberpunk 2077. The first is to select Skip forward to Phantom Liberty when creating a new character. Selecting the skip option allows you to start the game with a new character at level 15 and unlock both Phantom Liberty and the main game content. The skip option also starts your character with pre-selected cyberware and attributes .
If you want to change your attributes, you can do so by selecting “Reset Attributes” from the skills menu. Selecting the “Skip” option launches players into Pacifica, allowing them to begin experiencing all the new content immediately.
Another option for starting the Phantom Liberty expansion for Cyberpunk 2077 is to select Normal Start when creating a new character. When you select the Normal Start option, the game starts as normal, but you need to progress through the main story to unlock Phantom Liberty content. Reaching and completing the Act 2 quests “Walk the Line”, “Never Fade Away”, and “Transfer” will unlock Phantom Liberty story content.
You can reach this point by completing the following main story quests:
- Double life
- Love is like fire
- Timed game
- The space between them
- M’ap Tann Pelen
- Automatic love
- Corporate rat
- Doc the Ripper
- The rescue
- The Corpo Rat
- The Ripper Doc li>
You can also progress and unlock Phantom Liberty content if you have an older character . Depending on your level, the content may be easier if you have better weapons , cyberware , etc. Overall, it doesn’t really matter which mode you choose when you start the game, and it doesn’t affect the balance too much. However, we recommend choosing the Phantom Liberty launch option that suits you best. If you’ve already played the base game of Cyberpunk 2077 and want to experience the Phantom Liberty content now rather than later, select the skip option .
If you prefer content to unlock naturally, choose the Normal start option when creating a new character, or choose an older save and pick up where you left off (I chose this option and it’s working great so far). Once you enter the game and depending on the option you choose, you will be able to start the Phantom Liberty storyline in any of the options after receiving an unknown call. After the call, go to the location (Dogtown entrance) shown below to begin playing the Phantom Liberty storyline/content:
