Revealing just how big Reeves’ part is, CD Projekt Red added that he completed 15 days of voice recording, so get ready to see and hear a lot from the veteran action actor.

Reeves will be playing a character by the name of Johnny Silverhand, presumably because of that bit shiny hand of his. In addition to his appearance and voice, Reeves is also providing full-body motion capture for the character, and from what we’ve seen so far it’s looking like some seriously impressive stuff.

In an interview with BBC NewsBeat, Reeves gave a little information about the character he’s playing, saying: “I’m kind of a guide. You know, you have to do something, but Johnny wants you to do something too. There’s this…Am I your friend? Am I a foe? Am I really helping you? Am I not helping you? Are you in my way?”
