This year’s E3 video game industry convention hasn’t even officially begun (it starts on Tuesday), but no one who presents at this year’s event is going to top Microsoft’s Xbox announcement of its upcoming video game Cyberpunk 2077 starring… Keanu Reeves!
That’s right. Keanu Reeves not only made the presentation on Sunday, which was awesome, he is going to be “one of the key characters of Cyberpunk 2077,” according to an official press release.
During his presentation, Reeves appeared to be having an absolute blast talking about the game and playing franchise character, “legendary rockerboy” Johnny Silverhand, and the internet was very, very there for it.
“The trailer reveals one of the key characters of Cyberpunk 2077, Johnny Silverhand. The legendary rockerboy is played by Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves. In addition to his appearance and voice, Reeves is also providing full-body motion capture for the character,” reads the official press release.
