CD Projekt RED has left us with a weird feeling after Microsoft’s conference. The event was held yesterday, and as expected we were able to see some new footage of one of the most anticipated games right now, Cyberpunk 2077. The cinematic trailer looks great; everyone was quite excited about the game but imagine what a huge surprise was when Keanu Reeves appeared as a character at the end.

It seems that Reeves likes to appear at videogames. We recently could see him as John Wick during a seasonal event in Fortnite, but absolutely nobody would have guessed that he would be a character in Cyberpunk 2077. There is a bit of speculation going on about who is his character in the game, some people say he will be no other than Johnny Silverhand, a legendary rocker in Cyberpunk lore, but he is also said to be called “Mr. Fusion.” His role is yet to be confirmed, but if we take the video into account, it would seem that he will be important in the story of our protagonist, V.

As you probably know if you have been following the game, Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person open-world adventure that takes place in Night City, California, a megalopolis obsessed with power and money. This sci-fi story will let us play as a mercenary called V, who we can fully customize according to our liking. As the game progress, we can assign experience points to improve different skill trees and grant him all kind of abilities.

This may be as much as you will be watching of Cyberpunk 2077, at least for a while unless you are at the E3 because as it was announced not too long ago, the demo of the game won´t be streamed or recorded. The developers have explained that there are just marketing reasons behind that; they want to create hype for their game.

The other big reveal about Cyberpunk 2077 in the event was the official launch date. CD Project RED confirmed that we will be able to play it from April 16th, next year. The game will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
