Cyberpunk 2077 has received a highly-detailed new edition of Night City Wire which featured a brief cameo from Keanu Reeves himself.
CD Projekt Red today held its latest episode of Night City Wire, the ongoing series that reveals new information about Cyberpunk 2077, and the latest details that were unveiled dealt primarily with cars and fashion.
The majority of the show this time around honed-in on some of the cars and other vehicles that you’ll be able to operate within Cyberpunk 2077. Each car is said to control a bit differently, with higher-end models being easier to maneuver compared to those you might be driving in the middle of the wasteland. Races were also confirmed to be present in Night City, although CD Projekt Red also said things might get violent while on the track. It was also revealed that Johnny Silverhand’s 1977 Porsche 911 will also be in the game and is one of the more standout models that will be present.
Speaking of Silverhand, the character’s actor, Keanu Reeves, made a brief appearance in the episode to announce that Arch motorcycles will also be represented in-game. Reeves is one of the co-founders of Arch and he said that when CDPR approached him about being in Cyberpunk 2077, they also mentioned the idea of adding motorcycles from his company to the world as well. Reeves, obviously, was down with the idea almost immediately.
The other big focus of today’s episode was on that of fashion. We’ve seen a lot of distinct looks from characters within the world of Cyberpunk, but CDPR broke down some of the many styles you’ll find throughout. In a general sense, there are four unique types of fashion that you’ll find within Night City, with most of them correlating to one’s status within the town. It’s a cool idea that should allow you to customize your own character quite a bit when playing.
Last but not least, despite being said to be coming after the launch of all other iterations of the game, CD Projekt confirmed that the Stadia edition of Cyberpunk 2077 will be released in line with all other versions. Additionally, those looking to play on Stadia can start pre-ordering the game today.
All in all, what was shown off today in Night City Wire might not blow your pants off, but what we’re seeing continues to verify that Cyberpunk 2077 is looking to be one of the best games of this fall season. We’ll see if that rings true when it releases next month on November 19 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
