Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Cyberpunk 2077 has a major new star: Keanu Reeves. The actor revealed he’s playing a role in CD Projekt Red’s next game during Microsoft’s Xbox E3 2019 press conference on Sunday. The game also has a release date: April 16, 2020.

Today’s trailer brought viewers back to Northern California and Night City to follow a deal gone wrong between two characters, but the big draw came from Reeves’ appearance. You can watch a new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 above.

Cyberpunk 2077 is an adaptation of the now 31-year-old pen-and-paper Cyberpunk 2020 role-playing game. In its futuristic dystopia, megacorporations now run a nation where the federal government has collapsed.

Players will inhabit the persona of V, a fully customizable character, in a role-playing game where good cover shooting fundamentals are a must. Originally announced way back in 2012, Cyberpunk 2077 was initially revealed in a 50-minute gameplay demonstration at last year’s E3 and Gamescom. Here’s everything else we know about Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.
