Cyberpunk 2077 is out next April - and it has Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves plays the legendary Johnny Silverhand in Cyberpunk 2077.

Straight from Microsoft's Xbox briefing at E3 2019, CD Projekt RED has revealed a new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 confirming that Keanu Reeves will appear in the game and that it will arrive in stores on April 16, 2020!

Update: Yep, the leak was right, Cyberpunk 2077 is getting a meaty collector's edition complete with enough bits and pieces to satisfy even the most mechanical of metalheads.

The Xbox E3 briefing gave eager fans another look at Cyberpunk 2077, and best of all, a RELEASE DATE! You can tell him this is a dumb idea on Twitter.

In fact, he popped up on stage after making his debut in the game's trailer to talk about how he was swayed to take part in the game. He's referenced several times in the materials we've seen so far for Cyberpunk 2077, but it's worth remembering that one particular detail in the demo shown at Gamescom 2018 presents some notable implications for the story.

The domination began early, too, as France forward Eugenie Le Sommer got the first goal in the ninth minute. The French men's first World Cup 2018 game against Australia was watched by 12.6 million viewers.

Reeves not only provided the voice and likeness of Silverhand, but he also performed full-body motion capture.

"Wake the fuck up, Samurai", Reeves' character said in the trailer.

"You're breathtaking", yelled someone from the audience, prompting the "John Wick" star to respond, "You're breathtaking", gesturing to the audience. If you choose this latter option you will get a few exclusive digital trinkets, a DRM-free experience, and all the cash generated will go to CD Projekt Red. As a game, I'm sure it'll be rich and complex, as all CD Projekt Red games have been, but it looks like a slog for me - I mean, I'm one of those guys who just wants video game dogs to be pattable.

"The reason is we want to make the most our of the months of work we put into the demo and first showcase gameplay live at E3 and gamescom".
