CD Projekt Red has released an official modding tool called REDmod that allows Cyberpunk 2077 players to officially create and install their own mods to the PC version of the game.
As reported by Eurogamer, the REDmod tool includes custom sounds, animations, scripts, and more that lets players easily create custom content. It will also be updated regularly as new updates for Cyberpunk 2077 are released in order to stay compatible.
“You can use REDmod modding tools separately (in the commandline) or integrated into the WolvenKit mod editor (recommended for best experience and ease of use),” the official website reads.
Old mods created outside the new tool will still work without issue, CD Projekt Red made clear, and popular modding website Nexus Mods has added an official page on its website to explain how the two services will work side by side.
REDmod is also completely optional, being branded as DLC for Cyberpunk 2077 instead of a mandatory system, meaning users can continue to use the old modding systems if they prefer.
The game’s modding community has already produced countless wacky and wonderful mods since it was released in 2020. Users have made CD Projekt Red’s unused quests available, a way to listen to Cyberpunk 2077’s music outside of the car, and tons of new weapons and clothing too .
On the weirder side of things, some users even tried to mod the game so that Johnny Silverhand is a romanceable character – something that Keanu Reeves thinks is “nice”.
