Cyberpunk 2077’s modding toolset, REDmod is here, giving PC modders a big boost.
Developer CD Projekt Red released REDmod just before the weekend and, aside from including official Cyberpunk 2077 modding tools, the program also makes it easier to load mods into the sci-fi action RPG. That’s not to say that any mods that didn’t use REDmod are worthless; they do still work.
What’s surprising however, is how little fanfare there’s been about REDmod. Eurogamer was the first to pick up on the release, the tools having just popped up. They can be downloaded via Steam or direct from developer CD Projekt’s own website and are already being put to good use.
As of right now, there are at least 13 mods which have been created using REDmod. How we know? Because Modding site NexusMods has added a REDmod tag to their mods. Though it’s been in development since before REDmod’s release, the most interesting mod is R19 – Accurate E3 2019 Visual Restoration, a mod that’s attempting to restore Cyberpunk 2077 to its E3 2019 visual state.
Yes, we’re still waiting on Cyber Randy Savage, but having the tools out there should give the PC Cyberpunk 2077 modding scene a big boost. Given that body modification is a major, major part of Cyberpunk 2077, which is turn based on the Cyberpunk tabletop RPG, it’s appropriate that the game’s developers should enable modding like this.
