Cyberpunk 2077 by CD Projekt (opens in new tab) is now in a more comfortable and certainly more stable state than at the beginning of his life. The developer continued to work diligently to smooth out problematic elements of the game and add numerous quality of life features, which was probably the right thing to focus on, but it left a huge content gap for a game lest we forget , there should be multiplayer at some point.
The modding scene has embraced the game with some panache, and that’s where you’ll find the stuff that’s started to fill Night City in more interesting ways. An example is the youngest Drone Companion Mod (opens in new tab), created by Scissors, which adds a new type of operating system to the game called Techdeck. Equipping this allows the player to craft drones, androids, and mechs, and you can have up to four at a time.
Drones exist in Cyberpunk 2077, but you only have to pilot them in one story mission, so this is a significant change and brings with it a degree of depth. The TechDeck has up to three slots for modular upgrades, and there are eight different models of varying quality (unlocks according to your tech skill stat), and in terms of crafting yourself, you buy drone recipes from weapon dealers.
TechDecks allow you to create drones, then you can cast “TechHacks” (which work like Quickhacks) that apply temporary buffs and effects to them. Drones are also more likely to attack targets you’ve tagged.
You can only have one mech in your small army (boo!), they cannot be healed and will slowly lose health over time (although you can turn this feature off). This is presumably because they’re ridiculously overpowered and go through Night City’s goons like they’re nothing.
There are a total of five types of drones, six types of androids, and three types of mechs. The distinctions mainly concern the weapon loads, although there is an android called “Netrunner” who just dabs around with a gun and quickly hacks everything.
You can download the mod here (opens in new tab). As for more official stuff along those lines, Cyberpunk’s first expansion (opens in new tab) is expected later this year, although there is no release date.
