CD Projekt RED has announced that it will be disabling mods for the Steam and Epic Games Store versions of Cyberpunk 2077 thanks to the release of the Phantom Liberty expansion for the game. Making the announcement on X, the company stated that it did this to make sure that mods don’t break the expansion. The GOG version, on the other hand, will keep the player’s original mod settings intact.
“This is to prevent issues with the game that are caused by mods before they receive their update from the modding community,” said the company. “We want to make sure you have the best experience when playing the game.”
While mods have been turned off by default for Phantom Liberty‘s release, players who are willing to take the risk with breaking the game can easily re-enable their mods of choice and continue playing.
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty was released earlier this week, and takes place in the previously-inaccessible Dogtown area of Night City. The expansion is a spy thriller that sees protagonist V involved in a new high-stakes mission to save the president of the New United States of America.
