Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be one helluva game, but if you were hoping to make the beast with two backs with your playable character and Keanu Reeve’s Johnny Silverhands then you’re going to be sorely disappointed.
As announced by CD Projekt Red, banging John Wick isn’t a part of the title…which makes sense when you consider that Silverhands is actually less of a fully-fledged person and more of a side-effect of a chip that’s added into your characters head.
You hear his voice a lot and you’ll see him guiding you through the game and pointing you in the right direction, but he’s not exactly in a very easy-to-mount form. At least from what I’ve seen of the game.
In an interview with Video Games Chronicle, Cyberpunk level designer Max Pears said: “Keanu plays a crucial role in the game, but as for the option to romance him, I don’t believe you can.”
Maybe the performance capture equipment used to capture the essence of Keanu isn’t yet THAT advanced?
Oh well, it’s still probably going to be an okay game I guess.
I kid of course, Cyberpunk 2077 is looking like it’s going to be one helluva trip, and just like the rest of the world, I absolutely can’t wait for it.
The game is set in the dystopian world of Night City, a lawless place where body modification and cyborg-like ‘people’ are commonplace. Coming from the developer behind the amazing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, there’s a lot riding on the success of Cyberpunk, but from what CDPR has shown so far, it hasn’t disappointed fans.
