Look, it was bound to happen at some stage. We just did not expect it to take so long. That is right, enterprising modders have made it possible to have sex with Keanu Reeves’ Johnny Silverhand in Cyberpunk 2077. Any joy you derive from that will be short-lived, however, as CD Projekt Red has swiftly shut that possibility down yet again.
The mod was created by user Catmino, and can be found on Nexus Mods. The basics of how it works are relatively simple. It simply allows players to swap skin textures for other models manually.
Of course, Reeve’s Johnny Silverhand is one of them, and a joytoy that looks like him in Cyberpunk 2077 is the closest you or I will get to the legend.
Although Silverhand does have his own mature scenes in the game, it is usually seen from the player’s first-person perspective. The mod is also not exactly a great implementation, as the joytoy does not speak like the man it is supposed to be. As far as we are in the future, no one has sex with clothes fully on.
Shortly after the mod became more well-known, it was removed from the hosting site. A statement showed that CDPR has stepped in somehow and nipped it in the bud.
In a statement provided to PC Gamer, it is clear that the dev team has some restrictions for user-generated content. The main point is that such content should not be harmful to others, especially those of explicit situations. Having Keanu Reeve’s Johnny Silverhand in an intimate situation in Cyberpunk 2077 certainly falls under that category.
There are also plenty of other familiar faces in the game, so this will sound the warning shot for anyone looking to do the same. CDPR maintains that players be free to tweak the game at will when it comes to characters invented for the game. As for real people, they should be off-limits.
