The audience went frenzy as soon as Reeves talked about CyberPunk and how he is going to be a part of it. Well, probably he’s not just a part but will be seen throughout the game. According to popular YouTube gaming channel Skill Up, Reeves “isn’t some random cameo. He’s your sidekick for the entire game… and… lives inside your head.”

Keanu Reeves as Johnny Silverhand.

Reeves in Cyber Punk 2077; an action-adventure, sci-fi videogame, is seen as playing the character of Johnny Silverhand. He is an integral part of the game. Your role in the game is of mercenary V. Both John and V are related to each other through a biochip implanted in V’s head. Inside this chip is Silverhand’s mortality, or quite possibly your key to immortality.

The team is successful in attracting the crowd after using Keanu’s face.

Considering Keanu Reeves’s immense popularity, his presence in the game has already attracted quite a big crowd of not just gamers but also his fans. Even those who wouldn’t have played the game are now looking forward to it. Reason- There’s Keanu Reeves in it so how anyone misses it.

The team said that as the John Wick actor already has a history of playing strong characters in action movies, it wasn’t hard to imagine him in the new game. We can say that he is the marketing face for Cyber Punk 2077. The team’s marketing gimmick to feature Keanu Reeves is a success (well, it was apparent as soon as Reeves appeared in the trailer).
