Arch Motorcycle Does Some Sound Effects for Cyberpunk 2077
Cool bikes for a cool game
Keanu Reeves and Video Games and Motorcycles
Keanu Reeves is in a new video game called Cyberpunk 2077, and so is his motorcycle company Arch Motorcycle. Recently, a video surfaced of Reeves and co-founder Gard Hollinger doing some audio recordings for the video game.
In the video, the guys talk a bit about how Cyberpunk 2077 and Arch Motorcycles got connected up. They say the game developers Projekt Red were very interested in getting Arch’s motorcycles into the game.
The company’s motorcycle Method 143 is one of the bikes that definitely influenced the game. While the game doesn’t have an exact replica of Arch’s models, there is something that Hollinger calls “143-ish.”
Reeves said that the guys behind the game were fans of Arch and wanted a kind of Cyberpunk 2077 versions of the bikes. “I thought that was a very fun idea,” said Reeves.
It sounds like Projekt Red wanted to get the details right, too, which is why they had Reeves and Hollinger out there helping get the sound for the motorcycles right. This is a detail that’s often overlooked, and one that I’m happy to see the game developers paying attention to.
