One of the major highlights of E3 2019 has been the surprise appearance of the Matrix trilogy star, Keanu Reeves. The actor appeared on the stage to reveal his role in CD Projekt Red’s widely anticipated role-playing game, Cyberpunk 2077.

Reeves will play the character called Johnny Silverhand. He gets his name as he has a robotic silver arm and is described as “legendary rockerboy” by CD Projekt Red. As Silverhand is one of the main characters of Cyberpunk 2077 so, gamers are likely to see him multiple times.

His appearance got one of the attendees to shout that he is breathtaking. Reeves returned the favour saying “No, you’re breathtaking,” getting a lot of laughs from the crowd.
