|King of Swords||King of Wands||King of Pentacles||King of Cups|
|Tower (Base Game Alt. Ending)|
In order to get the King of Swords ending, make sure to side with Songbird in Firestarter. During the sequence where Songbird is extracting the Neural Matrix, choose the option to Help Songbird escape.
After Songbird turns the stadium's security system against Hansen, escort her out by fighting the waves of Barghest soldiers left standing. Once Songbird escapes successfully, you will trigger The Killing Moon quest.
During the Killing Moon, V will have to escort Songbird through the NCX Spaceport. After fighting off the NUSA soldiers sent after you, V and Songbird will eventually ride a tram that takes them to the launch platform of Songbird's rocket to the moon.
In order to get the King of Swords ending, make sure to choose the option to Call Reed once the tram ride ends (and after Songbird reveals only one of you can be cured). When Reed meets you on the launch platform, lay Songbird down and surrender her to the FIA.
Damn sorry, Song, I am. But you dicked me first. - V
In this ending, V ultimately decides that their life is their priority. Once Songbird admits to double-crossing V by telling you that the Neural Matrix is a one-use-only type of cure, the Night City merc finally decides that they've been burned one too many times.
If you managed to play through the King of Pentacles ending, you will know that Songbird was a reluctant member of the FIA and that Reed was no saint either. In this ending, V effectively sells Songbird's freedom in exchange for their own.
To people wondering, Reed admits in the King of Pentacles that Songbird was cured without having to use the Neural Matrix. However, he's pretty cagey about what alternate methods were used to revive her. It seems like the FIA aren't done cashing in on what's left of the Blackwall netrunner.
Songbird is returned to the FIA and will remain their captive. In both the Get It Together and the Killing Moon missions, Reed and Myers will confirm the questionable Blackwall project the NUSA had Songbird do. You just handed her back to that same project, served on a chrome platter.
Players who sell out Songbird during the Killing Moon will miss out on a conversation between Reed and V during the Four Score and Seven quest. Instead of this quest, King of Swords ending players will get the Through Pain to Heaven quest immediately after the Killing Moon.
Getting this ending will reward players with one of Phantom Liberty's ending trophies called King of Swords. You will get this once you speak to Johnny Silverhand about what transpired immediately after the Killing Moon.
By getting the King of Swords ending, you will gain access to the new alternate ending for Cyberpunk 2077 called the Tower ending. In this ending, V is cured of the Relic but it has its drawbacks as they soon find out after waking up from the operation.
