With the highly anticipated “spy-thriller expansion” of Cyberpunk 2077, titled Phantom Liberty, scheduled for release next week, fans have been eagerly awaiting glimpses of what this expansion has to offer. While some early reviews have trickled onto the internet ahead of embargo lifts, they haven’t provided any particularly captivating insights.
However, in a surprising turn of events, a recent post appeared on the r/Gaming Leaks And Rumours subreddit, revealing nearly an hour and a half of gameplay from CD Projekt Red’s forthcoming expansion, tantalizing the public’s curiosity.
A Brief Glimpse, Swift Disappearance
The excitement was short-lived. Within minutes, the website hosting the leaked video went offline, and, as of the time of writing, the Reddit post has been removed as well. The YouTube video, showcasing the gameplay, suffered the same fate, although a considerable number of viewers managed to catch a glimpse before it was taken down.
