CD Projekt’s Phantom Liberty Receives Rave Reviews on Steam: A Triumph for the Polish Studio

CD Projekt’s Phantom Liberty Receives ‘Very Positive’ Rating on Steam

The Long-Awaited Expansion

CD Projekt, the Polish video game developer known for their flagship game “Cyberpunk 2077,” has finally released their highly anticipated expansion called Phantom Liberty. This expansion, which is CD Projekt’s first major game premiere since the bug-ridden launch of Cyberpunk 2077 in December 2020, has received a “very positive” rating on the popular Steam platform, where digital copies of games for PCs are sold.

Positive Response

Phantom Liberty garnered this positive response based on 1,215 user reviews just a few hours after its launch on Tuesday. The game has quickly climbed to second place on Steam‘s chart, surpassed only by the discounted version of Cyberpunk 2077, which has topped the chart following a recent free update. It is important to note that Phantom Liberty is only available to owners of the Cyberpunk game.

Analyst’s Insights

In response to the success of Phantom Liberty, Trigon DM analyst Kacper Kopron stated in a note to clients that “so far, all the parameters of the expansion look very good.” However, he also advised that some investors might consider taking profits at this time. As a result of the positive ratings and the release of the expansion, CD Projekt’s shares initially rose 24% in June, but as of 0805 GMT, they were down 2.8%.

Intriguing Spy-Thriller Adventure

Phantom Liberty offers players a spy-thriller adventure, featuring the return of Keanu Reeves in the role of Johnny Silverhand from Cyberpunk 2077, as well as the introduction of Idris Elba as the completely new character of Agent Solomon Reed. The expansion is available on PC and current-generation consoles, and it has been praised by critics and players alike. GameSpot, an American video gaming website, described Phantom Liberty as “Cyberpunk 2077 at its best.”

Interestingly, Phantom Liberty is the last project to be developed on CD Projekt’s own technology, known as the RED Engine. The company has announced a switch to the external Unreal Engine for its upcoming developments, which include the highly anticipated sequel to Cyberpunk.

Price and Reviews

Phantom Liberty is priced at 99 zlotys ($22.74) for all platforms. The PC version of the expansion has received a score of 89 points on the Metacritic 100-point scale, based on 47 critic reviews. The PlayStation 5 version scored 88 points based on 43 critic reviews, while the Xbox Series X|S version received 89 points based on 12 critic reviews.

Increasing Popularity

The launch of Phantom Liberty has also had a positive impact on the popularity of Cyberpunk 2077, with the number of players simultaneously playing the game on Steam reaching 167,465 shortly after the expansion’s release.

Transitioning Engines

This transition to the Unreal Engine for future projects indicates that CD Projekt is striving to improve their development process and deliver even more immersive gaming experiences for their players. It will be interesting to see how this engine change impacts the development of the highly anticipated Cyberpunk sequel.

Overall, the success of Phantom Liberty on the Steam platform bodes well for CD Projekt and their reputation as a developer. It seems that they have learned from the lessons of the Cyberpunk 2077 launch and have focused on delivering a thrilling and impactful experience with this expansion. As CD Projekt continues to evolve and improve, players can expect even greater things from this innovative game developer.
