With a little help from CD Projekt Red, Keanu Reeves will be coming to video games soon enough, as Johnny Silverhand in the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. But fans will be able to play as both this character and another iconic favorite in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, thanks to the help of a particularly clever mod.
A user by the name of “JinMarr” has managed to put together a rather helpful thing over at Nexus Mods. And with it, fans can either play as Silverhand in the classic Konami adventure, or, better yet, the iconic John Wick character. Now, keep in mind that these aren’t official mods in any way, but rather fan recreations of the characters. So don’t expect him to act 100 percent like his actual self, or sound anything like Keanu. (“YOU’RE BREATHTAKING!”) Still, if you’re a fan of the actor – and who isn’t, really – it’s well worth giving a shot.
With the Wick mod, you’ll be dressed in his suit, and with Silverhand, you’ll get to wear his iconic shades, as you might have seen in the trailer by now. So you have your pick of which outfit you want to go with. So if you’ve got the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V, here’s your chance to try it out free of charge. Sadly, the mod doesn’t seem to work with the console versions of the game. Sorry, fans.
As for Cyberpunk 2077, it’s set to drop on April 26, 2020, and yes, it WILL have Keanu in all his glory, voice and all. So wake up, Samurai.
