Anybody who has performed Cyberpunk 2077 will know that its in-game police system is, nicely, a bit naff. Certainly, regardless of enhancements since launch, the police AI within the game stays reasonably rudimentary, and it is easy to have immersion damaged by some ridiculous rozzer habits.

Players know this and CD Projekt Pink does, too, which is why a “full overhaul” to the police system is incoming in Cyberpunk 2077’s incoming Phantom Liberty growth pack. That is nice information, sure, however with Phantom Liberty nonetheless months out, not excellent for avid gamers enjoying at this time.

Enter proficient modder anygoodname, who has just lately launched the Immersive NCPD Hotline mod for Cyberpunk 2077 over at NexusMods. This mod is noteworthy because it introduces entire new methods to work together with Evening Metropolis’s police pressure, making them simpler and extra enjoyable to take care of, albeit in a barely cheaty method.

With the mod put in V can now, on the push of some cellphone buttons, bribe the NCPD to assault enemies, in addition to pay them to cowl up any crimes and in addition to guard your self in opposition to false blame reviews. You’ll be able to see how the primary of those mechanisms works within the under gif.

Sure, the opposite two capabilities look enjoyable in a sort of cheat code-type method, however that third one genuinely will make enjoying Cyberpunk 2077 higher, as I am certain each participant could have had the game’s overly delicate cops going nuclear on them for no good cause earlier than.

An “Ah, I can see you unintentionally knocked over that scorching canine cart, sir. No drawback, we’ll now simply brutally execute you with a full NCPD SWAT group” second.

As you’ll be able to see within the gif above, that is not an issue although with the Immersive NCPD Hotline mod put in. Make a name, pay some money, then sit again and luxuriate in some enhanced police AI.

Clearly, this mod has taken inspiration from Grand Theft Auto’s phone-based cheat system, however the truth that it makes Cyberpunk 2077 higher exhibits how the game’s rudimentary-to-broken police system ought to have taken inspiration from that sequence all alongside.

I imply, the police system in GTA is infinitely extra refined than Cyberpunk, with an honest needed system and primary stuff, like not routinely spawning cops up your bottom whenever you do one thing unlawful when nobody else is watching. And, even judging the sequence police system on GTA V, that game was launched in 2013, not 2020 like Cyberpunk.
