Grimes Is Becoming a Video Game Character in “Cyberpunk 2077”
She’ll also be on the official game soundtrack along with Run The Jewels, A$AP Rocky, and more.
The highly-anticipated role-playing action-adventure game Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt Red is launching in April of next year, and they’ve tapped a slew of musical talent to be on the official soundtrack.
So far, those musicians include Grimes, Run The Jewels, A$AP Rocky, Nina Kraviz, Gazelle Twin, Ilan Rubin, Richard Devine, Deadly Hunta, Rat Boy, and the cellist Tina Guo. You can see a behind-the-scenes video about the artists on the game soundtrack below.
Grimes herself will become a character in the game known as Lizzy Wizzy, an acclaimed pop star in the Cyberpunk universe, while Keanu Reeves is starring as Johnny Silverhand, a high-profile artist whose band Samurai is represented by IRL Swedish punk rockers Refused (who will likely submit some new songs for the occasion, too).
You can pre-order the game, which launches April 16, 2020, here.
