After suffering a number of delays, the video game community is cautiously awaiting the release of one of the most anticipated games in recent memory, Cyberpunk 2077. Currently scheduled to hit the shelves early next month, the game will be a delight for music fans as it includes original tunes from Grimes, SOPHIE, Nina Kraviz, Run The Jewels, and more.
The open-world game offers a number of celebrity cameos, including the prominently-featured star of The Matrix and John Wick series, Keanu Reeves. In addition to Reeves, the game will also boast appearances from some of the artists included on the soundtrack. While details are still scarce, we know that Grimes will be included as an in-game character after she leaked information on her appearance earlier in the year. Kraviz, on the other hand, shared an official screenshot of her character in the game on Twitter, leading some to believe that we may see appearances from many of the game's musical guests.
Each artist has taken on a new in-game persona for added immersion. While the songs have been recorded by the actual artists, while playing, gamers will see the tracks listed under their Cyberpunk identity.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set to launch on Thursday, December 10th on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S, and PC. The first volume of the soundtrack will be released one day later and can be pre-saved here. The second volume of the soundtrack is scheduled for liftoff one week later on Friday, December 18th, and can be added to your library before it drops here.
