During Game 1 of this year’s NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat, a new Cyberpunk 2077 commercial was broadcast, and it featured none other than Keanu Reeves!
While short, the commercial features Reeves himself talking about Night City (the game’s setting), as well as some clips of Cyberpunk 2077 action.
Watch the new trailer for the game here:
In case you haven’t kept up with Cyberpunk 2077 news, Keanu Reeves wasn’t just tapped to promote the game as he portrays a major character in the game named Johnny Silverhand. Silverhand will serve as a guide to the game’s protagonist, though he seem sto be a “digital ghost” in the game as the original Johnny Silverhand has disappeared decades before the events of the game.
Keanu Reeves’ role in Cyberpunk 2077 was revealed back in E3 2019 at the Microsoft Press Conference. At the event, Reeves himself made an appearance, and his time on stage is easily one of the most memorable E3 moments.
Cyberpunk 2077 is releasing on November 19, 2020, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game will also be released on the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 consoles in the future. PS4 and Xbox One owners of the game will get a free upgrade to the PS5/Series X|S versions respectively once the next-gen versions are launched.
