Sure, Cyberpunk 2077 is already in HD—it goes well beyond HD for anybody taking part in in 2K or 4K, even—however when you ever stopped to have a look at the sport’s floor textures and partitions, you will have seen they’re not as sharp as a few of the extra attention-grabbing components of the world.
That’s to be anticipated, in fact, no developer of their proper thoughts would spend as a lot time on a patch of filth as they might the character’s house or automobile. However when a sure kind of sport reaches a sure degree of recognition, there are individuals on the market who wish to see what that appears like, value be damned.
You won’t bear in mind, however again in 2020 I wrote a few Witcher 3 undertaking undertaken by HalkHogan, a modder who needed to offer Geralt’s world a makeover, changing the sport’s default atmosphere textures with new ones that had been vastly extra detailed. That mod proved so good, and so profitable, that builders CD Projekt Purple included it of their current next-gen re-release of The Witcher 3.
Nicely HalkHogan is now again with a lot the identical factor for CDPR’s follow-up, Cyberpunk 2077, saying that his HD Reworked Challenge is now underway and posting a video showcasing a few of his work.
When you’d count on that including one thing like this to the sport would include a efficiency hit, HalkHogan says that as long as you might have sufficient spare VRAM, you received’t discover and slowdown by any means. And when you do, he’s releasing two variations of the mod:
Normally, the modification doesn’t hit efficiency in any method when you’ve got sufficient quantity of VRAM (video card reminiscence). Even when you run out of reminiscence a bit, it shouldn’t be an issue (and if it is going to, you may at all times simply uninstall the mod).
There are two variations of the modification, tailored to what the graphics card you might have.
Cyberpunk 2077 HD Reworked Challenge Extremely High quality: comprises the very best high quality textures and offers the very best visible expertise. Extremely beneficial for 2K/4K shows. Sport can use as much as max 800MB extra VRAM so most fashionable graphics playing cards ought to simple cope with it.
Cyberpunk 2077 HD Reworked Challenge Balanced: maintains excessive textures high quality with decrease VRAM utilization. Advisable for graphics playing cards with much less quantity of reminiscence. Sport can expend solely about 400MB extra VRAM so principally everybody who can comfortably play the sport can use this with out experiencing any vital efficiency drops whereas having noticeably higher textures.
Model 1.0 of the undertaking is accessible now on Nexus Mods.
