E3 2019 was packed with awesome announcements and trailers of upcoming games. Arguably the most unexpected part of the event was when CD Projekt Red announced Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves is part of Cyberpunk 2077.
During Microsoft’s briefing, the John Wick star popped up out of nowhere and surprised everyone. Reeves spoke a bit about the upcoming RPG, and described it as “breathtaking”. Seconds later, a quick-to-act member of the audience yelled back the phrase “you’re breathtaking”. This was met screams of joy from fans, and Reeves’ response was even more wholesome, who said, “You’re breathtaking! You’re all breathtaking!”
Shortly after, the man responsible, known as Peter Sark, shared a video of him on Twitter and mentioned the Cyberpunk developers.
And it got you a free #Cyberpunk2077 Collector’s Edition on top! Check your DMs.

Apparently it was the correct move, as it earned him a free copy of Cyberpunk 2077 Collector’s Edition. This version of the unreleased game comes with an array of bonuses. Alongside the game discs, the collector’s edition contains:
- Collector’s Edition box
- Collectible SteelBook
- 25cm x 10″ statue depicting V – the game’s protagonist – in action
- Hardcover art book
- Metal pin set
- Quadra V-tech metal keychain
- Annotated copy of A Visitor’s Guide to Night City sealed in an NCPD Evidence Bag
- Embroidered patches
- World Compendium detailing the game’s setting and lore
This, combined with the digital rewards, gives the game a hefty price tag of $250. Considering this, Sark saved himself a pretty penny by just shouting two words. Personally, I wouldn’t think interrupting a speaker is the right the move, especially when its Keanu Reeves on stage, but I guess it turned out well for this one man.
Set in the Night City, Cyberpunk 2077 is futuristic open-world RPG by the developers of the Witcher series. CD Projekt Red shared a lot of new information about the game during last night’s E3 presentation, including its release date.
