Mods and custom saves should now be safer to use than before.
With the release of official modding tools for PC, CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 mods seemed primed for success. The modding community has already released a number of useful add-ons, from improved vehicle handling to third person mode. Unfortunately, the developer issued a warning earlier this week about vulnerabilities in external DLL files.
With hotfix 1.12 going live on PC, the vulnerability has been fixed (and even extends to custom saves). Other fixes include one for a buffer overrun issue and removing/replacing non-ASLR DLLS. Installing mods should be safe but as always, exercise caution.
Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Google Stadia. Following its troubled launch, CD Projekt RED released its first major update in January which fixed memory leak and performance issues. The next big update is currently planned for this month so stay tuned for more details. The developer is also currently working on free DLC and proper Xbox Series X/S and PS5 versions which are coming later this year.
