Cyberpunk 2077 dev asks fans to stop having sex with Keanu Reeves

Cyberpunk 2077 fans have been creating mods for the game to change all sorts of things, from the minimap to the weather. There’s demand for saucier mods exists as well, as players love romancing characters in Night City. For instance, players who want to woo Judy as a male V can do so with the help of a mod created by Zialar. But not all mods of this nature have survived unscathed. CD Projekt Red has shut one a tweak that allows players to approximate sex with Johnny Silverhand, a major character played by Keanu Reeves.

A popular but simple tactic for modders looking to bed ineligible characters is to go to the game’s sex workers, known as joytoys, and replace their NPC models with more characters, like Goro Takemura or Evelyn Parker. One modder, Catmino, uploaded a version of this mod that replaced a joytoy with Johnny Silverhand — only to have CD Projekt Red intervene and take the mod down, according to the creator. You can no longer download it.

CD Projekt Red provided a statement to PC Gamer, reading in part:

Our most important rule regarding user-generated content, game mods in particular, is that it can’t be harmful towards others. In the case of model swaps, especially those that involve explicit situations, it can be perceived as such by the people who lent us their appearance for the purpose of creating characters in Cyberpunk 2077.

Therefore, when making fan content, creators have to make sure they’ve got permission from all the concerned parties (which might be people other than CD PROJEKT RED). For the characters we’ve invented for the game, we broadly permit you to tweak the game at will and just have fun. When it comes to models of real people whom we’ve asked to participate in the game, we kindly ask you to refrain from using them in any situation that might be found offensive if you don’t have their explicit permission.

CD Projekt Red did not respond in time for press. Johnny Silverhand has a sex scene in the game, but it’s from his point of view, which means you don’t end up seeing very much. For players who are disappointed, they can peruse other mods, including one that allows players to take the role of Johnny Silverhand, John Wick, or Keanu Reeves.

CD Projekt Red released official modding tools on Jan. 26, so players who are interested in tweaking their game can try their hand at it. Just be careful when it comes to the real-person cameos in the game, like Hideo Kojima.

A Hitman 3 streamer spent hours putting the entire town in a freezer

Hitman 3 players are already getting the titular hitman, Agent 47, into all sorts of antics. The franchise is famous for its sprawling levels that are full of civilians who could potentially thwart the player in assassinating their target. Players have plenty of straightforward options, but some fans are getting particularly creative in their missions. Take this streamer, for example, who undertook the monumental task of knocking out an entire town.

Why would anyone do such a thing? Well, unconscious bodies can be dragged into a freezer for safekeeping. It’s the definition of an ice-cold crime, and it took a streamer RTGame hours to get everyone in there.

Daniel, the streamer in question, worked his way through the town of Sapienza — from 2016’s Hitman — in an attempt to find interesting and funny ways to mess with the populace. At one point, he tries to line up an incredibly lethal golf ball swing that would kill everyone in one shot, but he can’t make it work, so everyone is spared. Also, he’s dressed up as a clown throughout the entire ordeal.

You might think he’d chill out after this particular challenge, but Daniel has no intention of stopping. “The joy of games like Hitman for me is that they’re presented with an incredibly straight face, but allow you to do incredibly silly things,” he told Polygon over email. “I’ve previously killed 553 people using only a fish in the game, so it just seemed like a natural progression for the freezer challenge.”

What’s next for the streamer? “I heard there’s a wine press in one of the maps, and I’d like to apologize in advance.” Ominous!
