Back at E3, CD Projekt Red disclosed that Keanu Reeves was going to be in Cyberpunk 2077, while at the press conference point of Microsoft. But that’s not all, in the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia game, the John Wick star was ready to play a prominent personality. There was a short revelation of the character in-game to accompany this announcement. That said, it was film footage, and therefore not wholly representative of what the character, Johnny Silverhand, actually looks like.
Gameplay vs Trailer
Characters always look better in cinematic trailers, and cinematic trailers are commonplace for games. In other words, of course, there’s a downgrade from a cinematic trailer to gameplay, but that’s not going to stop some players from feeling a bit bummed.
Expectations high for the game
The hype train for the Cyberpunk 2077 was out of control. There are some insane expectations for the title, partly because the game’s cinematic trailers were damn amazing. In other words, when this releases, there will be some disappointment and it does not totally alter the gaming landscape.
Official pitch of the game
“Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, an action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification,” reads an official elevator pitch of the game. “You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character’s cyberware, skillset and playstyle, and explore a vast city where the choices you make shape the story and the world around you.”
