Holy hell, Keanu Reeves is in Cyberpunk 2077

‘You’re breathtaking’

What? What? America’s sweetheart Keanu Reeves is in Cyberpunk 2077.

“A while back the guys from CD Projekt Red approached me for Cyberpunk,” Reeves said on-stage at Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference. “They were going on and on about how they were creating this vast open world…with customization through in-game choices. I’m always drawn to fascinating stories.”

In the game, Keanu is playing a “legendary” rockerboy, Johnny Silverhand, who’s described as “one of the key characters of Cyberpunk 2077.” He provided a full-body motion-capture performance for the role. At E3, someone yelled out “you’re breathtaking” – to which he replied back, “No, you’re breathtaking.” It was a very pure moment, one bound to make every E3 2019 highlight reel.

He’s just so gosh-darned lovable.

Along with the cinematic trailer for E3 – which is absolutely worth a watch for the mantis blade action alone – CD Projekt also put the Cyberpunk 2077 collector’s edition up for pre-order across PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It’s coming in hot at $249.99. Something tells me this is going to sell out fast.

As shown in this unboxing video, the collector’s edition comes first and foremost with a 10″ statue of protagonist V. There’s also an art book, a compendium, a fancy case, pins, patches, and an annotated visitor’s guide for Night City.

Cyberpunk 2077 releases for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 16, 2020. We’re so in.
