"Tomorrow RTJ enters Night City with 'No Save Point' @cyberpunkgame," Run the Jewels wrote on Instagram on November 11, along with colorful cover art.

'No Save Point' will follow the duo's single 'JU$T' which features Pharrell Williams and Zack de la Rocha and appears on their latest studio album 'RTJ4'. Run the Jewels surprise-released the album back in July and have still been making headlines since its release.
If you haven't been introduced to the game by now, it's time to get on the news, as 'Cyberpunk 2077' is expected to be the biggest video game release in the past decade, if not all time. It will feature a starring role by Keanu Reeves and is created large-scale in a massive and immersive open-world action RPG environment.
Several gaming companies have had to adjust their new projects' release dates according to that of the upcoming CD Project Red AAA title. Although, its release date has been pushed back several times and its latest delay has left fans frustrated. Nevertheless, it's refreshing to see the game's latest news update is a new Run the Jewels song and we can't wait to hear it.
