Microsoft officially kicked off E3 2019 (EA held their own event this weekend which included the first Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay, but that was technically “pre-E3”) with their yearly showcase of upcoming games and more.
During their presentation a new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077, the highly anticipated next game from The Witcher developer CD Projekt RED, was shown. The cinematic trailer includes two exciting things: the long-awaited released date to mark on our calendars, and the surprise reveal of Keanu Reeves as one of the game’s characters.
You can check out the cinematic trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 below, along with more info on the game and a video of Reeves himself making an appearance after the trailer ended.
Night City, California. Year 2077.
The world is broken. MegaCorps manage every aspect of life from the top floors of their sky-scraping fortresses. Down below, the streets are run by drug pushing gangs, tech hustlers, and illegal braindance slingers. The in-between is where decadence, sex and pop culture mix with violent crime, extreme poverty and the unattainable promise of the American Dream.
You are V, a cyberpunk. In a world of cyberenhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners and corporate life-hackers, today is your first step to becoming an urban legend.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released to the masses on April 16, 2020.
NOTE: If the second video doesn’t do it automatically, the Keanu Reeves appearance starts at the 48:30 mark and ends at 51:20.
Mark your calendars — Cyberpunk 2077, the open-world, action-adventure story from CD PROJEKT RED, is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC April 16th, 2020.
