During game 1 of this year’s NBA Finals between LA Lakers and Miami Heat, CD PROJEKT RED has released a brand new Cyberpunk 2077 commercial featuring Keanu Reeves. In case, like myself, you live under a rock half the time, you might not know what this is. You may be sat there thinking “what am I reading?” So before I get into the little trailer breakdown, I’m going to refresh your memory on what exactly is Cyberpunk 2077.
The lowdown on Cyberpunk 2077
Well, so far we only know bare bones, but that just adds to the excitement. For the most part, information on this title has been kept very hush-hush. This is what we do know. Cyberpunk 2077 is a narrative-driven, open-world RPG.
The world itself is a vibrant and dangerous metropolis of the future, known as Night City. Follow the story of V, a hired gun on the rise in a world where cyber-enhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netryners, and corporate life-hackers are all at large. On brand for CD PROJEKT RED, the concept of choices and consequences will feature heavily as players make decisions that will ripple out through the world. Cyberpunk 2077 was first announced back in 2012 but really went under the radar. And then Keanu Reeves appeared on stage and the world witnessed “YOU’RE BREATHTAKING!”
This new trailer is short, super short. I don’t even know how to break this one down, so we’ll just have a quick chat. The trailer is narrated by the always beautifully breathtaking Keanu Reeves and is just filled with jump cuts showcasing different aspects of the world. Lots of fighting. All set to the tune of Billie Eilish’s Bad Guy. Honestly, it’s very fitting. Although I still have no clue what’s actually going on, I want it just because of Keanu. He is a fantastic selling point.
