Keanu Reeves stuns E3 with major Cyberpunk 2077 announcements, release date

CD Projekt RED has released the E3 2019 trailer for Cyberpunk 2077.

This will be Reeves's first appearance in a video game since his likeness was achieved (to far less detail) in games based on "The Matrix" films way back for the PlayStation 2.

The surprising news came via an incredible extended trailer for the game, which included a release date - finally - of April 16, 2020.

Cyberpunk 2077 is set in the same universe as Mike Pondsmith's classic pen & paper RPG system, Cyberpunk 2020. Reeves didn't say much about his role in the game - his main line is "we have a city to burn", so I'd wager he leans toward the underbelly side of society - but he did discuss his history with CD Projekt Red.

Of course, as a character in a game like Cyberpunk 2077, people are wondering if it will be possible for players to develop a romantic relationship with the character. You can, at least, get your digital pre-orders in now on the Xbox Store, where the standard edition of the game is $59.99 / £59.99 / €69.99.

If you're interested in the Collector's edition, you'll want to secure your copy soon, as these things sell out quickly. The game, made by the creators of the Witcher series, is a gritty, futuristic open-world shooter set in Night City. Still, it's pretty cool that the collector's edition will include at least one.

We're looking forward to more time with Cyberpunk 2077 at an E3 behind-closed-doors presentation later this week.
