The Cyberpunk clip ended with the stunning reveal of one Keanu Reeves. The announcement aforementioned, "The trailer reveals one in every of the key characters of Cyberpunk 2077, Johnny Silverhand". The game is set in futuristic Night City which has become obsessed with body modification. Not only did Keanu Reeves reveal his own participation at E3; he also cut the red ribbon on Cyberpunk 2077's flashy new trailer. Obviously, you don't get someone of Reeves' caliber just for a cameo, so it will be interesting to see what kind of role his character plays in the overall narrative.

Cyberpunk 2077 is now scheduled for an April 16th, 2020, release!

Reeves then talks more about the game and announces its April 16th, 2020 release date for PC, PS4 and XBox. Six years after the first announcement, we now finally know when to expect Cyberpunk 2077.

The trailer ended right as the screen focused in on Reeves, but that was way more than enough to hype up the hall of fans in the Los Angeles venue. With dozens if not hundreds of stories set in the grimy, neon-lit city, CD Projekt RED has set high expectations for their new game.

CyberPunk 2077 is essentially an open-world action-adventure story.

The relevant bit of information appears on the game's listing on Steam, Best Buy, and Gamestop (which is where we grabbed these screenshots). The store page confirms that the game is Xbox One X Enhanced with 4K Ultra HD - no mention of HDR 10 as of yet though.

The game's Collector's Edition is also available for pre-order and comes packed with a number of high-quality collectibles. You could even argue that this is a release that will manage to eclipse Rockstar Games in terms of detail and development length.
