Cyberpunk 2077's shambolic state at its launch is nothing we need to go over again now, but it is interesting to note that CD Projekt RED has brought modders on board to assist its support for the game.
Night City's many, many, many glitches were plastered all over social media in the winter of 2020 as an appropriate send off for that very strange year. While these compilations were funny, it was a shame for the players who had waited eight years for the game to come out, and reports on the studio's problematic working culture shone a little light on what went wrong.
As such, "cyberpunk" is a genre that both developers and players are approaching with caution. One game that could reverse all of that is Stray, an adventure following an intrepid cat searching for their family in a city populated by robots. Check it out below!
In a few months, it will be the game's first anniversary, and it'll be an interesting time to reflect on how far Cyberpunk 2077 has come. The studio has been supporting it with periodic patches that address gameplay predicaments and iron out technical hiccups across its six platforms. Now, the group of fans behind Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's best modding tool have joined CD Projekt RED officially.
WolvenKit, the tool in question, allows a player to alter any file in either of the games and take a look without unpacking the archives. Additionally, there's a mesh exporter that comes with the tool, letting a user copy any asset inside the game and recolour it, for example.
Traderain, Nightmarea, Blumster, and rfuzzo are now employed by CD Projekt RED thanks to their work creating WolvenKit, and will now be supporting the studio's efforts with Cyberpunk 2077. Traderain and Nightmarea actually own their own studio, Yigsoft, and this company will be brought under CD Projekt RED's umbrella while staying operationally separate.
"We are really excited for this and we really hope we can help to bring Cyberpunk 2077 to the next level!" said Traderain in an announcement in the modding Discord for the game. "The modding community has always been very important to us and we are happy to be working with them side by side on further expanding the tools which are available to modders," a representative for the studio told Kotaku.
At the moment, there are four lawsuits that have been levied against CD Projekt RED alongside an investigation by the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection in Poland. All of this is occurring at the same time as development on the next Witcher game, which might just follow Ciri instead of Geralt.
