Gamers who pushed Elon Musk into the trash cyberpunk 2077 This may have been done at the behest of the billionaire. This is according to a brief excerpt from Walter Isaacson’s recent Musk biography, which describes Musk charging his way into a voice recording session during the game’s development and demanding a cameo.

The awkward encounter reportedly happened while artist Grimes, who is the mother of Musk’s three children, was recording her voiceover for a character in the game. Grimes claims Musk brought a “two-hundred-year-old” gun to the studio and demanded its inclusion. The billionaire claims he told developers he was “armed but not dangerous.”

“The guys in the studio were sweating,” Grimes told Isaacson. Eventually, they agreed, she said.

Musk’s insistence leads to a side quest where the main protagonist accepts a job from famous singer cyborg Lizzie Wizzy, voiced by Grimes, to keep an eye on her lover, whom she believes That he might betray her. The lover in the story is also Vizzy’s manager.

“Imagine this – we are never alone, not really. “Always surrounded by assistants, PR representatives, make-up artists,” Vizzy says during the search. “I stop to smile at her for a millisecond, it would be at every scream in this city… .Millions of eyes, constantly fixed on you.”

Players who accept the job break into a nightclub and hack a camera to listen in on a conversation between a lover and an unknown woman. The player learns that the boyfriend is not cheating, but has instead planned to backup a digital version of Vizzy’s consciousness in case her career ends sooner than expected. Bizarrely, the boyfriend asks if he can modify Vizzy’s digital consciousness to remove “undesirable traits”.

If the player decides to hand over the recording of the conversation to Vizzy, she decides to find her lover and murder him, without telling the player. Vizzy calls back several days later and asks the player to meet her at a hotel where they find the lover’s mutilated body. When provoked, she claimed that she did not intend to kill the man, but that she was filled with anger.

Vizzy asks, “You ever wake up in the middle of the night…and don’t know who you are, not even for a moment.” “Or, I mean…do you ever feel like you weren’t really you?” The player is then instructed to grab the killed Musk character and throw it in the trash. cd project red, cyberpunk 2077 The developer did not immediately respond to Gizmodo’s request for comment.

Isaacson claims in his book that the cybernetic implants frequently used in the game were a “sci-fi version” of the type of brain computer interfaces Musk was developing at his company Neuralink. In the game players can use cybernetics to hack computers and weapons, see through walls, and scan the environment for information. Prolonged use of the devices is also said to lead to a condition called “cyberpsychosis”, where users are driven to violent madness. Musk’s Neuralink has successfully helped a monkey play pong.
