Pop star Grimes has opened up about her role in the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, in which she plays Lizzy Wizzy, a singer with a dark backstory. Spoilers follow.

Grimes did a livestream over the weekend and answered a bunch of fan questions. One of these questions was about Cyberpunk 2077 and her involvement with the game. While answering, she spilled the beans on her character. All of the beans.

“I did my voice acting for Lizzy Wizzy, that game is going to be fucking good,” the singer explained, via Reddit. “I mean I haven’t played it, but I saw someone play an hour of the game. I play a pop star who committed suicide on stage, and they had to quickly come and perform emergency surgery and replace her whole body with cybernetics while she was dead for an hour. Then she finished the show as a cyborg. One of the greatest pieces of performance art ever made.”

The video has since been taken down and the comments removed, but there’s a mirror of it below:

Cyberpunk 2077 is due for release on September 17, 2020. You’ll be able to play it on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and even GeForce Now – the latter with ray tracing on.

There will be around 75 side quests in Cyberpunk 2077, each of them fully crafted, rather than being the filler you see in a lot of large RPGs.
