While Cyberpunk 2077 has endured a difficult lifespan since its 2020 release, with a barrage of bugs and glitches on various platforms originally putting off players, 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 grown stronger since the announcement that the game will be getting a sequel.

Thanks to all of these factors, stock in Cyberpunk is finally trending upward, something which might have inspired a new mod aimed at those who dig the corpo lifestyle.

Corpo playthroughs can now be more immersive than ever

The mod in question is called ‘Super Basic Stock Market’ and is the first-ever work of modder tunatunatunatuna. They've decided to take a crack at getting the Night City NASDAQ up and running as their initial foray into modding.

They’ve done this by allowing V to access a stockbroker via the computer in the corpo-themed apartment made available for purchase via an update earlier this year.

Currently, you’ll only find one kind of stock, called Night City ETF, available to trade, though you can use it to get your portfolio going and get used to watching the value fluctuate with every five seconds of real-time that goes by.

If that sounds a bit too stressful, don’t worry, as the value changes are currently angled towards having the stock increase in value more often than it decreases, making this a pretty reliable way of building up your cash reserves.

You may very well need that fortune too if you decide to stick with the mod for the long haul, with tunatunatunatuna suggesting that they might add the ability to invest in other in-game companies like Arasaka and Militech in the future, in addition to having stock prices be affected by the outcomes of recently completed missions.

How to install stock market mod

So to ensure the mod works properly, you need to make sure to grab awpsoleet’s mod ‘Cyber Engine Tweaks’ before you go trading, as this is required to get tunatunatunatuna’s mod running as intended.
