Cyberpunk 2077 developer announces music contest for upcoming expansion

As work on the Phantom Liberty expansion continues, CD Projekt Red is giving fans the opportunity to see their music featured in Cyberpunk 2077.

CD Projekt Red has announced a public music contest for fans of Cyberpunk 2077with the winning submission to be featured in its next expansion titled phantom freedom. The studio is working hard to finalize production on the Cyberpunk 2077 DLC, which now appears to include a new radio station that will be featured by the best in the contest.

Cyberpunk 2077 has seen a resurgence lately, with concurrent play numbers skyrocketing after the Cyberpunk: Edge Runners anime and update holder. To date, the title is the 13th most played game on Steam, narrowly beating Destiny 2proving that the sudden interest was no freak accident.

announced on Cyberpunk 2077, the developers invite fans and musicians to “help Ash set up 89.7”, a community radio station titled “GrowlFM” which has just been expanded. The tweet details that the proposals should take inspiration from the attached video, which features a Cyberpunk 2077 cartoon with the written text spoken by voiceover. Light on specific details, it appears that Ash is an in-game character associated with the Mox gang, who have come up with an improvised method of spreading “fresh new beats and dogtown detes” to Night City.

Further information reveals that submissions will be accepted until November 30, with up to 15 entrants featured on the radio station. With Cyberpunk 2077-with themed rewards and a $3,000 cash prize also available, there’s plenty to get involved. The rules are outlined on the dedicated website, stating that tracks must be between 2 and 3 minutes long and, of course, no copyrighted music is used or sampled in any way.

Music was at the heart of Cyberpunk 2077the recent return from the public spotlight. For a while, browsing the Internet without coming across clips of Cyberpunk: Edge Runners was impossible, and they were almost always paired with “I really want to stay at your place” segments. Rosa Walton’s viral track was originally in Cyberpunk 2077 back to launch, playing radio while V rolls, then reused by Studio Trigger during the emotional peaks of edge runners. With a Cyberpunk 2077 recently announced sequel, fans can look forward to more music like this for many years to come.

Cyberpunk 2077 is available for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. The phantom freedom DLC releases in 2023.
