Cyberpunk 2077

As the highly anticipated expansion of Cyberpunk 2077, Phantom Liberty, made its way into the gaming world, players were introduced to a new area called Dogtown. This new district brought with it an intriguing storyline and fascinating gameplay elements. However, one thing became abundantly clear – the residents of Dogtown held a strong resentment towards the Night City police force.

In a surprising twist, players discovered that Dogtown was a private-military controlled area where police officers were not welcome. Anyone who managed to get their hands on a police car or van quickly found out that they were denied entry through the Dogtown gates. Instead, they were met with a giant red message that read, “F**k off NCPigs,” a clever play on words referencing the Night City Police Department, or NCPD.

The decision to exclude police vehicles from Dogtown may seem peculiar at first, but it aligns perfectly with the district’s lawless nature. When compared to the rest of Night City, which is known for its corruption and criminal activities, Dogtown takes it to another level. The area is ruled by a private military group called the Barghest, led by the ruthless and violent Kurt Hansen, the main antagonist of the Phantom Liberty expansion.

The release of Phantom Liberty and the game-changing Update 2.0 brought significant attention to Cyberpunk 2077. Players were drawn to the revamped gameplay features, such as the new perk system and improved AI. Additionally, the expansion provided closure to various fan theories and included intriguing references to real-world figures like Elon Musk and Ken Block.

The popularity of Cyberpunk 2077 on Steam soared following the release of Phantom Liberty. Players eagerly delved into the new content, exploring every corner of Dogtown and uncovering its secrets. For those in need of guidance, IGN’s comprehensive Cyberpunk 2077 guide offers valuable tips and tricks for navigating this unique district.

IGN’s review of the expansion awarded it a stellar 9/10 rating, praising the turnaround that CD Projekt Red achieved with the Phantom Liberty expansion and the preceding anime spin-off, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. The addition of Update 2.0 further enhanced the overall experience of the game.
