Lock Yourself Out of Phantom Liberty in Cyberpunk 2077 Expansion with Wrong Dialogue Option

Cyberpunk 2077 players beware! It seems that a wrong dialogue choice can have devastating consequences in the game’s latest expansion, Phantom Liberty. This one and only expansion can easily become inaccessible if players make the incorrect decision during a critical moment in the game.

Spoiler Warning: Before we dive into the details, let’s be aware that minor spoilers lie ahead regarding Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty expansion. Particularly, we’ll be discussing a pivotal decision players encounter during the fourth main mission known as “Lucretia My Reflection.”

According to the Cyberpunk 2077 Guide by IGN, the fateful option arises when Solomon Reed, played by Idris Elba, asks the mission’s protagonist, V, whether it’s worth continuing. Choosing to respond with “Know what, Reed? You’re right,” followed by “Somethin’ real wonky ‘bout this. I’m out,” will trigger a series of events that can lead to locking oneself out of the Phantom Liberty expansion.

As the story unfolds, the other characters in the scene start showing signs of unease, providing players with one last chance to rethink their decision and opt to proceed with the paid expansion content. Even Johnny Silverhand, the legendary rocker played by Keanu Reeves, warns V that this is no bluff.

However, selecting the dialogue option “Made my decision” indicates V’s choice to abandon Reed’s mission and leave Phantom Liberty behind. This prompts the character to express disappointment, stating, “Finally showin’ me your true face. That the way of things? Hard pass from me then. If I gotta die, I’m not gonna die fightin’ someone else’s war.”

As a result, the mission is considered failed, and players are instructed to move on, accompanied by further disheartened dialogues. Although players can still explore the new Dog Town area and engage in various side content like Gigs, the main questline of Phantom Liberty will remain locked until initiating a new game.

In IGN’s guide, players can find more information about this particular outcome, as well as discover other intriguing Easter Eggs and References within the Phantom Liberty expansion.

Phantom Liberty launched on September 26th, shortly after the game-changing Update 2.0. This substantial update not only introduced a new perk system and enhanced AI but also laid the groundwork for the expansion itself. Additionally, players witnessed the resolution of an Elon Musk fan theory and encountered references to the late racing legend, Ken Block. The update also brought some peculiar additions to Cyberpunk 2077’s biggest mystery, leaving fans intrigued and eager to explore the new content.

The release of Phantom Liberty resulted in a surge of popularity for Cyberpunk 2077 on the Steam platform, with even more players immersing themselves in the game. To assist new, returning, or rusty players in navigating the Dog Town area, IGN’s Cyberpunk 2077 guide offers invaluable tips and tricks.

In IGN’s review of the expansion, it received a remarkable 9/10 rating. The article states, “Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty completes an immense turnaround for CD Projekt Red’s future RPG, kickstarted with the anime spin-off, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, and its latest 2.0 Update.”
