This Cyberpunk 2077 mod adds Edgerunners-inspired cyberpsychosis

CD Projekt Red recently updated Cyberpunk 2077 to add elements from the new anime series, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. However, their own updates didn’t add the series’ ever-present danger of cyberpsychosis, so a modder stepped in to do that for them. The Aspiring Edgerunner mod adds a “humanity” cost to all cyberware implants and certain actions in the open-world shooter, as well as consequences when your humanity gets too low.

As spotted by Game radars, the Wannabe Netrunner mod adds a Humanity stat that permanently decreases based on how many Cyberware you have installed, and temporarily decreases based on Sandevistan Cyberware kills and usage. You can restore temporarily lost humanity by resting or freeze its decline through the use of new Neuroblocker Injections which can be purchased through Ripperdocs.

If you let your humanity get too weak, you will go through three stages: first, you will start experiencing visual issues and critical damage debuffs; then you will enter pre-psychosis, in which the glitches and impairments worsen and you are at risk of cyberpsychosis; finally, you’ll enter cyberpsychosis, which actually buffs your speed, armor, and health regen, but also causes the police to spawn. Note that the mod’s creator warns that the visual effects involve flashing lights, so beware if you’re prone to seizures.

Cyberpunk 2077 has seen an upsurge in player numbers recently due to the popularity of the Edgerunners anime. CDPR has updated the game to coincide with the show, including the addition of its main character’s cyberware, and we’ve got a guide to the Sandevistan location if you want to try it out for yourself.

If this cyberpsychosis mod isn’t enough to set you back, you can always wait for next year’s Phantom Liberty expansion or the recently announced Cyberpunk 2077 sequel.
