CD Projekt’s Cyberpunk 2077 (opens in new tab) now sits in a extra comfy, and definitely extra secure, state than it did within the early a part of its life. The developer has continued to work assiduously at smoothing out troublesome parts of the sport and including quite a few quality-of-life options, which was in all probability the best factor to give attention to, however it has left a giant hole in content material for a sport that, lest we neglect, was at one level imagined to have multiplayer by now.
The modding scene has taken to the sport with some verve, and it is there that you simply discover the stuff which has begun fleshing out Night time Metropolis in additional attention-grabbing methods. One instance is the current Drone Companions mod (opens in new tab), created by Scissors, which provides a brand new kind of working system to the sport referred to as a Techdeck. Equipping this lets the participant craft drones, androids and mechs, and you may have as much as 4 directly.
Drones exist in Cyberpunk 2077 however you solely obtained to manage them in a single story mission, so this can be a substantial change and comes with some degree of depth. The TechDeck has as much as three slots for modular upgrades, and there are eight completely different fashions of various high quality (unlocked in response to your technical skill stat), and when it comes to the crafting itself you purchase drone recipes at weapon distributors.
TechDecks allow you to create drones, then you may forged ‘TechHacks’ (which work like quickhacks) which apply short-term buffs and results on them. Drones are additionally extra prone to assault targets you’ve got tagged.
Amongst your small military you are solely allowed one mech (booo!), they cannot be healed and can slowly decay in well being over time (although you may flip this characteristic off). That is presumably as a result of they’re ridiculously overpowered and undergo Night time Metropolis’s goons like they’re nothing.
There are in complete 5 sorts of drone, six sorts of android, and three sorts of mech. The distinctions are primarily amongst weapon loadouts, though there’s an android kind named ‘netrunner’ that simply tootles round with a gun quickhacking the whole lot.
You possibly can seize the mod right here (opens in new tab). As for extra official stuff alongside these traces, Cyberpunk’s first enlargement (opens in new tab) remains to be anticipated later this yr, though it does not have a launch date.
