Mods offer you the possibility of making Cyberpunk 2077 super realistic, but the question is whether it does not distort the game too much.


In this JV Fast, we are interested in Cyberpunk 2077 mods. If you are interested in the world of video games, you have surely already heard of him, if only the numerous controversies that have erupted upon its release, in 2020. The cause: numerous bugs and a terrible PlayStation 4 version, which even caused the title to be removed from the PS Store for a few months. But all that is in the past, since everything is much better for Cyberpunk, and you can finally walk the streets of Night City without problems. Like The Witcher 3, CD Projekt places emphasis on storytelling and immersion here. You play as V. Through an unfortunate path, you find yourself with a chip in your skull which causes Johnny Silverhand to appear, a character who will accompany you throughout the adventure. Your goal is to remove the rocker from your head, otherwise you will die.

An expansion was released on September 26, 2023, which allows you to discover a new story with actor Idris Elba and a new part of Night City. With, in addition, an update that completely changes the progression system as well as the skill tree. And finally, you have the possibility of installing mods in order to personalize your game as much as possible.

Mods that go too far?

You've probably seen images of this photo-realistic Cyberpunk 2077 mod. User “NextGen Dreams” posted a video presenting the city Night City more believable than ever. The same Internet user presented another little software which this time improves movements, like the FPS Unrecord, which we discovered in a stunning trailer. It's impressive, but on the JV editorial side, we are a little doubtful. We have the impression that making the game too realistic means “breaking” the boundary between the game and reality. There is a slightly unhealthy side to coldly killing enemies in a universe too close to ours, is that it distorts the atmosphere desired by CD Projekt. If you want the full opinion of the JV editorial team, do not hesitate to watch our JV Fast, and give us your opinion on these mods.
