Perhaps the most anticipated video game right now is Cyberpunk 2077. It has reportedly been in the works for years now by the talented team at CD Projekt Red. We’ve seen glimpses of the game, and thus far, it looks to be worth the hype.

Many gamers have projected more announcements about this first-person RPG at this year’s E3 event, and it looks like these inclinations are true. CD Projekt just unveiled an official E3 cinematic trailer for Cyberpunk 2077, and right away, it looks amazing.

It starts off with a cinematic shot of the city. It’s adorned in lights and a lot of noise. This city — which will be the backdrop to all of your investigative adventures — has a life of its own it seems. We then see a cab pull up next to a no-tell motel. It’s covered in bullet holes. Obviously, this is not a part of town you want to be walking around at night.

A character exists the cab and heads to one of the rooms. He’s dressed in a snazzy leather jacket. That’s one thing you can expect to be on full display in Cyberpunk 2077: Plenty of ways to customize your created character. You’ll be able to give them virtually any outfit you want and some pretty cool accessories.

The character that entered the room apparently has some sort of deal worked out, where he’s supposed to hand over a very important chip. Not much is known about it except for the fact that the character had to go through extraordinary lengths to get it.

As he exits the bathroom, he’s attacked. Luckily, he has plenty of augs to fend for himself. That’s another beautiful aspect of Cyberpunk 2077. There will be so many ways to augment your character, much like what you can do in the Deus Ex games.

The deal ends badly, but as you wake up from the intense battle, you’re greeted by the voice of Keanu Reeves. That’s right. The Matrix and John Wick star himself will be in this game. He addresses you as Samurai, which is all kinds of amazing.

This is certainly a huge surprise that no one was expecting. Keanu Reeves’ popularity couldn’t be higher right now, especially considering John Wick 3 just hit theaters not too long ago. CD Projekt Red is pulling out all of the stops on this game.

That’s not all, either. Keanu Reeves was gracious enough to give fans an official release. Cyberpunk 2077 will be available worldwide on April 16, 2020 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

This reveal couldn’t have gone any better quite honestly.
