With the release of CD Projekt Red’s new masterpiece Cyberpunk 2077 on the horizon, the Polish developer drops the last Night City Wire devlog. It showcases a boatload of interesting stuff, like new Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay and lots of Keanu Reeves. So let’s dive straight into it.
Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay trailer
In just three short weeks, Cyberpunk 2077 will launch. So to get hyped up, CD Projekt Red publishes a 5 minute long gameplay trailer. It showcases a bunch of new and detailed stuff. For example, we see new parts of Night City, the advanced (and slightly intimidating) character customization, and a bunch of action set pieces.
Some parts were already showcased in the German Cyberpunk 2077 highlight we translated earlier this week. Though surprisingly, one scene featuring Johnny Silverhand takes a different turn. Instead of Keanu Reeves’ character, the player interacts with another dude in the same booth of a diner.
Keanu Reeves steals the show
Speaking of the American actors, Reeves himself was very prominent in the last Night City Wire. Finally, we get more information on his role in the story. As it turns out, Johnny Silverhand is embedded in V’s brain thanks to an experimental chip. The former rockstar turned terrorist now resides in your character’s skull, but can apparently take over your body.
We also see how it’s like for Reeves to bring the character to life from behind the scenes. The trailed seen below shows the Matrix in full mo-cap gear. We also visit him in a sound studio, where he records voice lines for the character. Reeves is however fully aware that you might not even hear most of the voice lines he recorded.
From what I’ve seen [Cyberpunk 2077] has got a lot of freedom. There’s so many different paths that you can take. But it’s not just quests and paths, it’s like ‘who are you, how do you want to play the character?’.
Cyberpunk 2077 is slated for 10 December, and will release on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One X, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.
