- PS5 users who purchased the bundle of Cyberpunk 2077 and its expansion, Phantom Liberty, face an unexpected delay. U
- Unlike those who secured the expansion separately, bundle buyers won’t have the preload luxury and will have to wait until the official release.
- Despite this hiccup, the anticipation for the expansion is high, promising a fresh journey and the inclusion of a new character portrayed by Idris Elba.
There’s a small hitch for those who have been excited to return to Cyberpunk 2077’s neon-lit, light-filled world with its most recent expansion, Phantom Liberty.
Sadly, you’ll have to wait a little longer if you’re one of the people that bought Cyberpunk 2077 and Phantom Liberty together for the PS5.
Recently, CD Projekt Redbroke the news that Phantom Liberty alone PlayStation 5 owners can now advance by pre-loading the game. For the players that bought the bundle, though, the tale is different. For the aforementioned players, a little more patience is required. They won’t be able to download the base game and its expansion until the official DLC release time approaches.

The extension requires an astounding 33GB of space, giving PS5 users an idea of what’s to come.Added to the recently released 2.0 update—which weighed in at 25GB—is this. In other words, the entire download may be larger than 100GB. The eagerly awaited “pre-order Quadra” may also not be easily accessible for PlayStation players, particularly for early birds. This Quadra Sport R-7 “Vigilante” car was only available to pre-order customers on the PlayStation and Xbox Series X/S.
Phantom Liberty is a huge expansion of the current game universe, offering a brand-new adventure into Dog Town. Players will be guided through fresh storylines and challenges by V, a resurrected Johnny Silverhand, and the excellent Idris Elba as Solomon Reed, the newcomer. However, it’s notable that, much to the dismay of some fans, Mr. Elba’s character cannot be pursued romantically.
With the release of the premium expansion rapidly approaching, CD Projekt Red has released particular instructions for PS5 users. You must select “download” to get Phantom Liberty from the PlayStation Store after it officially launches, if you purchased the bundle. The developers have apologized for the difficulty in getting preloading to work.
The current state of affairs sheds light on the nuances of digital game launches and user behavior. Some may find this to be a small annoyance, while others may find this irritating, particularly if they were depending on the preload option and have slower internet connections. Considering the magnitude of the expansion and the main game, it’s really important.
Not all hope, though, is gone. According to certain PlayStation players, they were able to preload the game prior to the problem occurring. Therefore, it’s plausible that a preload window was open before it was abruptly closed.
Nothing appears to be in the way of users of the Xbox platform. There are no issues with the preload option. Regretfully, it doesn’t appear that PC users will be able to preload this expansion just yet. However, that might not be a major setback given that PC download speeds are usually quicker.
Phantom Liberty is praised as the result of their tireless efforts to address the early issues encountered during debut.It’s praised in several reviewers as the definitive experience that represents Cyberpunk 2077 at its best.
Ultimately, the game’s substance and user experience are what often endure over time, even when technological difficulties and delays are not unheard of. With its depth of material, Phantom Liberty is positioned to be a major part of the Cyberpunk 2077 story.
It’s understandable why fans are excited for Cyberpunk 2077’s sequel, especially in light of the most recent free update.
