After the recent introduction of official support for mods in Cyberpunk 2077, in the last few hours, a user has created a mod that lets players spend a night in company with Johnny Silverhand aka Keanu Reaves.
One of the first mods of Cyberpunk 2077 that immediately garnered more attention from the public was the one published on Nexus Mods by a user named Camino, which allowed players to spend a night in company with Johnny Silverhand (Keanu Reaves), with even the possibility of ending up in bed together.
This mod was nothing particular, as it was limited to swapping the model of a JoyToy with that of Johnny, who therefore spoke in a voice different from his own and was always dressed in his classic clothes (also because in the game files there is no model of Silverhand without clothes).
Despite its very rough nature, the mod found great success within a few hours, until CD Projekt Red decided to remove this modification completely, as it was deemed particularly offensive towards Keanu Reeves, which gave a face and voice to the aforementioned Cyberpunk 2077 character.
According to the developers of the title, portraying actors in inappropriate ways could be detrimental to their careers, especially when it comes to sexual scenes.
“Our most important rule regarding user-generated content, game mods in particular, is that it can’t be harmful towards others. In the case of model swaps, especially those that involve explicit situations, it can be perceived as such by the people who lent us their appearance for the purpose of creating characters in Cyberpunk 2077,” CD Projekt Red said in a statement.
“Therefore, when making fan content, creators have to make sure they’ve got permission from all the concerned parties (which might be people other than CD Projekt Red). For the characters we’ve invented for the game, we broadly permit you to tweak the game at will and just have fun. When it comes to models of real people whom we’ve asked to participate in the game, we kindly ask you to refrain from using them in any situation that might be found offensive if you don’t have their explicit permission.”
