John Wick star Keanu Reeves will seen in action-adventure story from CD Projekt Red
At the Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference, CD Projekt Red showed off a cinematic trailer for its highly anticipated open-world game Cyberpunk 2077.
In the end of the trailer there is an appearance by Keanu Reeves who is the new character in the game.
Reeves showed up on the stage after the premiere of a new Cyberpunk trailer, which ended with his appearance.
“A while back CD Project Red approached me and asked me to be a part of their new project CyberPunk 2077. They were going on and on about how they’d create this vast open world with a branching storyline… how you’d be able to customise your character through in-game choices and it’s not something I knew before but I was excited. I am always drawn to a fascinating story,” he said at the stage.
The character Reeves plays was not named in the trailer, but fans of the tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020 on which CD Prokect Red is basing this game have identified him as Johnny Silverhand.
In the trailer, V is about to make a deal for a chip and has a flashback of his friend dying during the heist. When he comes back to present time, he finds himself betrayed and has to use his cybernetic body to take out the bad guys. It’s later in the trailer when Reeves shows up.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be releasing on April 16, 2020, for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PCs. Though future consoles weren’t named, they are expected to be supported as well. It is available for pre-order for $59.99 (approximately Rs. 4,165) on all platforms right now.
