During Sunday afternoon’s Xbox press conference at E3, CD Projekt Red revealed that Keanu Reeves will have a role in their newest title, Cyberpunk 2077. This, of course, came as a huge shock. But, while it was revealed that Reeves will be in the game, the developer didn’t reveal anything about what his role will be in Cyberpunk’s main story.

But after developer CD Projekt Red held a private, 50-minute long gameplay demo event for select members of the gaming media, details regarding Reeves’ role in the game have started to emerge.

The name of Reeves’ character is Johnny Silverhand, who is being described as a “digitized construct.” It was also revealed that his character will be with players for the majority of Cyberpunk 2077’s main story. The character is also being described as a technologist who will, at times, make a few snarky comments.

If you missed the latest trailer for CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077, then you can check it out in its entirety below.

According to media members who watched CD Projekt Red’s private demonstration of Cyberpunk 2077, the game is filled with “weak gunplay” and “unimaginative stereotypes.” But, even though the gameplay was subject to some criticism, those who were able to watch the private demo also have said that the game is visually stunning, which is something anyone can surmise from watching the latest trailer.

With Cyberpunk 2077 set to release next spring, CD Projekt Red has less than a year to fix these issues before players are able to get their hands on the highly-anticipated title.

This will be the studio’s first release since the critically acclaimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which many would argue is the best open world game of the current generation. So, it’s easy to see why Cyberpunk 2077 has such high expectations.

Of course, Cyberpunk will be a much different game than The Witcher 3 was, with the most notable difference being that it’ll be an open world first-person shooter as opposed to a third-person open world RPG.

Other confirmed details regarding Cyberpunk 2077 include the ability to approach missions in a stealthy manner or to go in loud, and on top of that, players will be able to control their characters’ dialogue, and those choices will have a significant impact on how the main story plays out.

Cyberpunk 2077 is set to hit the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 14, 2020. So, it shouldn’t be too long until we get to see more gameplay from the highly-anticipated title.
