In the realm of Cyberpunk 2077, where player modifications (mods) have long been the lifeblood of the community, CD Projekt Red has made an unprecedented move. As the release of the massive Phantom Liberty DLC approaches, players received a surprising piece of news: their cherished Cyberpunk 2077 mods will be automatically deactivated upon booting up the expansion.
For PC gamers, mods have been instrumental in elevating the Cyberpunk 2077 experience, offering improvements in performance, visuals, control enhancements, and a wealth of customization options that are simply unparalleled.
However, with the imminent arrival of the Phantom Liberty DLC, along with the free update Cyberpunk 2077 2.0, the potential for conflicts between mods and the new game content is a cause for concern. To preemptively address this issue, CD Projekt Red has taken the proactive step of disabling mods by default at the Phantom Liberty expansion’s launch, scheduled for September 26.
In a tweet from the official Cyberpunk 2077 technical support Twitter account, a message is relayed to Steam and Epic Games Store players: “Attention all Steam and Epic players! We wanted to let you know that mods will be automatically disabled for the launch of Phantom Liberty.
This is to prevent issues with the game that are caused by mods before they receive their update from the modding community. We want to make sure you have the best experience when playing the game.”
This move by CD Projekt Red underscores their commitment to ensuring a smooth and trouble-free gaming experience for players diving into the Phantom Liberty expansion.
The decision to temporarily disable mods is driven by a desire to avoid any potential conflicts or compatibility issues arising from mods interacting with the new content. While the message emphasizes the disabling of mods, it’s important to note that players will retain the option to manually re-enable mods at their own risk.
However, it’s strongly advised to exercise caution and patience in this regard. CD Projekt Red recommends holding off on reactivating mods until the modding community has had time to update their creations and ensure compatibility with the Phantom Liberty expansion.
This precautionary measure aims to prevent unforeseen problems that could detract from the immersive experience that Phantom Liberty promises to deliver.
As the countdown to September 26 continues, Cyberpunk 2077 enthusiasts eagerly await the arrival of Phantom Liberty, hopeful that it will mark a new and improved chapter in the game’s history.
With CD Projekt Red’s dedication to stability and a glitch-free launch, players can anticipate a smoother transition into the world of cybernetic adventures when the expansion finally lands.
