Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty Finally Adds Vehicular Combat

Must read

CD Projekt is finally adding vehicular combat to Cyberpunk 2077 in the Phantom Liberty expansion.

Fans on Reddit first noticed that a screenshot showed protagonist V riding a motorbike while firing a pistol at a car that was firing back aplenty, and CD Projekt has now confirmed to IGN that full vehicular combat is on the way.

While the screenshot is advertising Phantom Liberty, the vehicular combat is likely coming in its accompanying patch, version 1.7, that will be available to everyone who owns the game. Phantom Liberty is confirmed to launch on September 26 but CD Projekt Red hasn't given a specific release date for version 1.7, though confirmed it will come no earlier than September 9.

"Together with Phantom Liberty we’re introducing vehicle combat," said CD Projekt senior communication manager Paweł Burza. "You’ll be able to fire guns from you car or bike or use weapons, which are mounted on your car."

That's not all version 1.7, or at least Phantom Liberty, is adding though, as players will also potentially become susceptible to the cyberpsychosis disease highlighted in the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime. This feature may even have been subtly shown in the new trailer revealed during the Xbox Games Showcase.

The update brings some more intense PC requirements too, however, and CD Projekt Red is officially moving on from HDD support.
