Avid gamers have been modding Cyberpunk 2077 because the title launched late final 12 months however now that there’s official mod support from CD Projekt Pink, followers are going wild with the probabilities. That being stated, CDPR would not need gamers getting too wild. To leap forward of the inevitable curve after one mod gained insurmountable reputation, the studio has banned mods that permit for V to have intercourse with Keanu Reeves’ character Johnny Silverhand.
As anticipated (rule 34, anybody?), the inevitable nude and romance mods have hit the world of Evening Metropolis, together with one which makes use of reduce content material to piece collectively a fully voiced Judy romance for a Male V. One other mod quickly adopted after, created by modder Catmino, that allowed for gamers to tweak the in-game textures with different fashions with the intention to have intercourse with just about whoever they need. Included in that’s Keanu Reeves’ character, texturizing the rocker dangerous boy onto a intercourse robotic named Joytoy.
Making a change like that wasn’t onerous, there are canon scenes inside the sport starring Silverhand which can be unimaginable sexual in nature, so making that leap via retextures is one thing that was going to occur. However simply because it was certain to occur doesn’t suggest that the studio is completely satisfied about it (and never simply because it is only a dangerous mod, the scene has Keanu’s face however Joytoy’s voice and it is simply 9 shades of awkward).
The Joytoy tweak in query was solely up for a short time earlier than Eurogamer seen it was faraway from Nexus Mods with the “clearing issues out with CDPR” replace the place the mod was. As for why it was eliminated, the studio issued the next assertion to PC Gamer:
“Our most necessary rule concerning user-generated content material, sport mods specifically, is that it could possibly’t be dangerous in direction of others. Within the case of mannequin swaps, particularly those who contain specific conditions, it may be perceived as such by the individuals who lent us their look for the aim of making characters in Cyberpunk 2077.
“Subsequently, when making fan content material, creators have to ensure they’ve received permission from all of the involved events (which is perhaps folks apart from CD Projekt Pink). For the characters we’ve invented for the sport, we broadly allow you to tweak the sport at will and simply have enjoyable. Relating to fashions of actual folks whom we’ve requested to take part within the sport, we kindly ask you to chorus from utilizing them in any scenario that is perhaps discovered offensive should you don’t have their specific permission.”
