Can You Romance Alex?

No, You Can't Romance Alex

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty - Romancing Alex

Alex, and all other characters in Phantom Liberty, cannot be romanced. CD Projekt Red, before the DLC's release, has announced that no new romance options will be added in the DLC.

Worry not, as you will still be spending a lot of time learning about Alex' story through her main quests in the expansion's story. You may even get a chance to boogie with her!

In-Game Description

Undercover FIA agent, metanthropic technology specialist, and Solomon Reed's ex-protege. Growing up in the slums of the Los Angeles Metroplex, she saw her parents drown in various addictions, her friends' childhoods plummet into a never-ending cycle of crime, an environment riddled with inescapable poverty, and a life of hopelessness... but she always dreamed of seeing herself on the braindance billboards. It was a stroke of luck that the BD studio that she discovered was an FIA front. Soon, Alex was a fledgling agent under the wing of accomplished spy Solomon Reed, undertaking risky ops and classified missions—both domestic and foreign. When the Unification War broke out, she was sent to Night City, where things went south and Alex came full circle. She returned to the slums she so desperately wanted to leave, though this time it was Dogtown instead of LA. After seven years under cover doing routine spy work, she had almost lost hope of ever getting out of this hellhole... until an old friend suddenly appeared on her doorstep.

Phantom Liberty Endings Guide

Alex' Fate Depends on Your Choice

Cyberpunk 2077 - Alex

Even though Alex does not affect any of the endings you may get in Phantom Liberty, a certain choice that you need to make will dictate her fate at the end of the expansion.

During Firestarter, you and Alex will disguise as the Cassel twins and meet Kurt Hansen inside the stadium. You'll then be led by Songbird to extract the neural matrix, wherein you will be prompted with a choice to help or betray So Mi.

Helping Songbird

If you choose to help So Mi in Firestarter, Alex will kill Kurt Hansen as planned but Songbird will override the stadium's defense systems to give both of you a chance to escape. Alex notifies Reed of your betrayal as you escape.

Alex survives during the quest, but will not contact you for the rest of this story path until you complete Phantom Liberty, where you will get Unfinished Sympathy that caps off your short career as an FIA agent, but opens up the way for Alex to finally retire from being a spy.

Betraying Songbird

If you choose to betray Songbird in Firestarter, she will notice that you are uploading an ICEbreaker and warns Hansen that something is wrong. Songbird then hacks you and Hansen will kill Alex. The ICEbreaker does push through, but it's too late for your fellow FIA agent.

Once you finish this story path and finish Phantom Liberty, Reed will tell you during Who Wants to Live Forever that he prepared a niche for Alex at the Columbarium in North Oak, Westbrook.
