Keanu Reeves appeared during the Cyberpunk 2077 event at Microsoft's E3 2019 conference, which led to a fan calling him "breathtaking". The adoring fan has since learned that CD Projekt Red will be sending him a free copy of the Collector's Edition of Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the most highly-anticipated games of E3 2019, as the trailers for the game have shown an incredible science-fiction world, which has the potential to upstage CD Projekt Red's previous game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Cyberpunk 2077 was shown during Microsoft's conference, which culminated in the reveal that Keanu Reeves would be appearing in the game as both a voice actor and by offering his likeness to the project for a character named Johnny Silverhand.
Keanu Reeves appeared on stage at E3 2019 to reveal the release date of Cyberpunk 2077. The audience reaction to Reeve's presence on stage was so passionate that he struggled to get through his speech. At one point during his speech, Reeves mentioned that the feeling of walking through the streets of the future was going to be breathtaking, which led to a fan in the audience shouting "You're breathtaking" and Keanu repeating the compliment back to him and to the rest of the audience. It turns out that the fan is a YouTuber named Peter Sark, who outed himself as the guy who yelled at Keanu Reeves on his Twitter page. Sark received a response from the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account, which confirmed that he was being given a free Collector's Edition copy of the game.

The reveal of Keanu Reeves appearing in Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the best moments of E3 2019 so far, especially as recent rumors suggested that Lady Gaga is going to be part of the game and would be the one appearing at E3. Reeves' star has been rising of late, with the amazing success of the John Wick franchise and the highly-anticipated return of the Bill & Ted movie series, which enters production this month. Reeves' character only briefly appeared in the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer and almost nothing was revealed about his character, but the awe-inspiring love for the actor is such that the fans don't care and are just happy to see him associated with the project.
Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 16, 2020, which means that Peter Sark still has little under a year to go until he receives his free copy of the game.
