The new Netflix anime Cyberpunk: Edgerunners and the recently released update 1.6 seem to do the role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 good. In the last week, not only has the number of players increased enormously, the anime Edgerunners has boosted the game’s modding scene.
For Cyberpunk 2077, it seems to be going pretty well almost two years after the release. After the modest launch, which was particularly about the technical shortcomings of the role-playing game, the developers at CD Projekt needed some time to get Cyberpunk 2077 back on track. But it’s not just the recently released and announced game content that players seem to like. With the new Netflix anime Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the modders have their hands full again.
Modders are bringing anime content to Cyberpunk 2077
The standalone series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners has been available on Netflix since September 13th. The story of street kid David Martinez is told in the ten episodes of the anime. After a stroke of fate, he decides to become an edge runner. Shortly after the release of the anime series, there was already a surge in Cyberpunk: Edgerunners-themed content on the modding platform NexusMods.
For example, there are a number of character presets and customization options that bring the anime looks to Cyberpunk 2077bring. Hairstyles and facial presets that allow David or Lucy from the series to be recreated in-game, or new radio stations that can be used to listen to music from the anime. There are also mods that mimic Rebecca’s pistols from the series, and others inspired by the show’s overall aesthetic.
Most recently, Cyberpunk 2077 received patch 1.6. This not only brought new features, but also a bunch of bug fixes and improvements for the game. In addition, the first and only expansion for the cyberpunk role-playing game was announced, which will be called Phantom Liberty. The expansion, due out in 2023, will see players reunite with the character Johnny Silverhand, played by Keanu Reeves.
