Cyberpunk 2077 climate change mod makes things a bit too real: Video, download details, and everything you need to know

A new Cyberpunk 2077 mod is aiming to reflect climate change in the game, which means changing up the weather in Night City more often and more distractedly, because of decades' worth of damage to our environment.

Of course, Cyberpunk 2077 was already a modders' delight, with numerous high-profile fan-made adjustments already grabbing headlines: there was the third-person mod which gave us a new perspective, for example, and the flying mod which let us take to the skies.

Cyberpunk 2077 climate change mod video

If you want to take a look at the Cyberpunk 2077 climate change mod in action, look no further than the video below...

As opposed to the nice sunny days and clear nights that you'll mainly see in the main game, this mod brings with it some more dystopian weather options.

The climate change mod adds the new weather options of pollution, fog, rain, toxic fog, overcast and clouds. Since the game is set 25+ years into the future, these alternate weather situations add a bit more grim realism.

After all, this could be the reality we're looking at in a few years time if we don't show the environment some love. You could argue that adding this sad reality into the game is a little unnecessary, because aren't games meant to be escapism? Is this a bit too real? That's a matter of opinion, of course.
