There is absolutely no doubting that Cyberpunk 2077 is the most anticipated game of the year, perhaps even the decade. Despite being hit for a third time with a recent delay, the game is still in full swing at showing fans what they can come to expect when it does eventually release with the help of Keanu Reeves.
One aspect that has excited fans since its reveal, was the inclusion of much-beloved actor Keanu Reeves, who’s offbeat and eccentric charm almost goes hand in hand with the world of Cyberpunk 2077.
Keanu Reeves will be playing Johnny Silverhand in the game, an ex-rocker who is hellbent on causing a bunch of destruction within Night City.
From the video, you certainly get the sense that Keanu is very involved in this character and the development process, which should mean that we will have a great experience interacting with his character throughout the game.
Keanu enthusiastically stated, “So you get to see Johnny as the rockstar, you hear about his military past, he’s fighting for his survival… it’s really an interpretation, I think we have a little Johnny Silverhand in all of us”. Further adding that “what CD Projekt Red has shared with me in the way they talk about this game, and what I have seen, it’s got a lot of freedom, there are so many different paths you can play the game on.”
Keanu really seems to be a fan of the development crew, working closely with them to ensure their vision is brought to life, and that he has an equal part in embodying the character. His enthusiasm and the way he discusses the character evokes someone who really wanted to be a part of this title and is going to give his all to bring Johnny Silverhand to life.
The footage presents that the main player’s character, V, speaking with Silverhand quite often, showing that they will share a deep connection, with the plot closely tied to the two characters.
