While Cyberpunk 2077 has endured a difficult lifespan since its 2020 release, with a barrage of bugs and glitches on various platforms originally putting players off, things are finally looking up for the Keanu Reeves friendship simulator.
Following the release of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, a lot of people have been tempted into giving the game another chance, leading to some massive player numbers that have only increased since the announcement that the game will be getting a sequel.
Now, a barrage of new mods is offering fresh content to those returning to Night City, providing them with stocks to trade, guns to shoot and, in the case of one new mod, the chance to rock a look that’ll really stand out from the crowd.
Have you ever wanted to make Cyberpunk 2077 look a bit more unique with some extra tech?
The mod in question is called ‘Ceres Face Cyberware’ and is the work of modder AnruiMurasaki. A lot of their previous work has also focused on giving Cyberpunk players more options when it comes to customising their appearance, giving them the ability to look a bit more like popular characters from Edgerunners and vanilla Cyberpunk.
This time, instead of taking inspiration from an existing resident of Night City, they’ve decided to create a bunch of colourful facial cyberware of their own design, which comes in a range of combinations and colours.
From simple flesh-coloured options that aren’t too much of a departure from the vanilla game’s options, to dark wires that’d go well with a leather jacket and a motorcycle. There are even some gold and multicoloured versions that’ll mark you out as the ultimate futuristic fashion devotee. But you’ll probably be able to find a set to suit your character no matter what their preferred wardrobe looks like.
So the mod comes in a number of different versions. The main factors dictating which file you’ll want are how comfortable you are with installing Cyberpunk mods, and whether your character’s base model is male or female.
So for those with hours of experience tinkering around in-game files, there’s a more advanced version of the mod that uses NoraLee’s ‘Morphtarget and AnimRig Additions’ as a framework. This adds the new cyberware to the game in a manner that won’t replace any of the vanilla options.
But on the other hand, if you’re new to Cyberpunk modding, or modding in general, there’s a ‘lazy’ version of the mod which simply replaces the vanilla game’s ‘cyberware 02’ option. This is simple enough, but it doesn’t offer as much customisability.
Regardless of whether you’re now wandering the streets of Night City basking in the gasps of pedestrians who’ve been stunned by your new look, make sure to follow us for more interesting Cyberpunk 2077 mods.
