The Cyberpunk 2077
Xbox One controller features a neat little Easter egg, with a QR code that, when scanned, sends you to a track from the upcoming game’s soundtrack.As reported by UglyDucklingTaken on Reddit
, scanning the code found on the back of the controller now takes you to an unlisted YouTube video
of ‘The Ballad of Buck Ravers’ by in-game band SAMURAI (as performed by real-life band Refused). Two other SAMURAI tracks are available to listen on the Cyberpunk 2077 channel
, but this was previously unreleased. You can try it for yourself using the image below:
It seems to be a recent change – before release, the same QR code would take those who scanned it to a pre-order page for the game. However, multiple commenters on the YouTube listing began saying the QR code took them to the video around a week ago.
It’s not the first time CD Projekt Red has hidden references in plain sight – the game’s 2018 E3 trailer included hidden messages with details about the game, and the Game Detectives Wiki lists numerous other ARG elements that have been quietly ongoing in the years since announcement.
