Cyberpunk 2077 might be getting its first major expansion next year, but that hasn’t stopped fans from creating their own mods for the game so they can finally have Netflix’s popular anime series, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, in the game for realsies.

Following the release of animation studio Trigger and developer CD Projekt Red’s 10-episode anime tie-in series, Cyberpunk 2077 has experienced a resurgence as one of the most popular games on Steam. Since our last article on the matter, in which Cyberpunk 2077 averaged a total of 85,555 concurrent players, the open-world role-playing game is now pulling big boy numbers with CDPR claiming that the game has had a whopping one million players each night across platforms.

Although CD Projekt Red had the forethought to make Edgerunners content for the game via David Martinez’s jacket and Rebecca’s shotgun, the modding community has gone full cyberpsycho to place the world of Edgerunners smack dab in the middle of 2077.

The last mod in particular would likely be on born-again anime fan and game developer Hideo Kojima’s checklist of musts for 2077 considering his Twitter review of the show highlighted its utilization of Franz Ferdinand’s “This Fire” as its opening theme song. Why the man hasn’t just made a Letterboxd or a MyAnimeList account escapes me.

While some players were satisfied with having a few cosmetic presets, others like YouTuber KhrazeGaming went further, attempting to replicate Edgerunners protagonist David Martinez’s kit of military-grade chrome in the game. Apparently, David’s kit is so busted that KhrazeGaming recommends players bump up the difficulty so their build won’t hamper the fun that comes with “chroming the fuck up.”

All in all, everything’s turning up Milhouse for Cyberpunk 2077 thanks to its game-fixing patches and the undeniable popularity of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. That’s pretty nova if I do say so myself.
