Solomon Reed Introduced in Cyberpunk 2077's Phantom Liberty Expansion
The character Solomon Reed is depicted in a subway, seemingly lost in his thoughts as he gazes out the window. This striking image from Cyberpunk 2077's forthcoming expansion, Phantom Liberty, is just the beginning of an intriguing narrative.
Phantom Liberty, the game's solo expansion, is set to hit the gaming world on September 26, launching on platforms such as PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S. This expansion introduces some fresh faces to the gritty universe of Cyberpunk 2077, including the character of Solomon Reed, brought to life by Idris Elba.
Who is Solomon Reed?
Reed is a spy who has been operating in Night City for many years, under the direct orders of the President. His life before his introduction in the expansion's storyline is a mystery. To give fans a sneak peek into his life before the events of Phantom Liberty, a new cinematic trailer has been released, showing us a glimpse of his life seven years prior.
Phantom Liberty Trailer Details
The trailer doesn't contain any spoilers for the events of Phantom Liberty. However, it does shed light on a key event from Solomon’s past, as well as the backstory of Songbird, the netrunner who assists the protagonist, V, throughout the expansion. The cinematic trailer provides a more immersive experience of Elba's performance and Christine Minji Chang's portrayal of Songbird.
What's New in Phantom Liberty?
The cinematic trailer depicts Solomon embarking on a train departing Night City, seemingly at the tail end of an operation. Songbird, in his ear, ensures his safe exit. As they discuss taking a break from their secret government roles, the mood shifts from relief to suspense, hinting at a significant event between the two characters that will be further explored in Phantom Liberty.
