A new set of mods for Grand Theft Auto V are making it look exactly like Cyberpunk 2077 – if not even better. 

Cyberpunk 2077 has become one of the most hyped games in recent history. Despite several delays in the game’s development, the title is nearly here, with a release date set for November 19.

It’s safe to say that the whole gaming universe is excited to see what Cyberpunk will bring to the table, especially when screenshots of the game show a masterfully crafted future world filled to the brim with adventure and vice.

However, it has been quite the wait for the game to finally make its way onto our screens. In response, one very excited (and possibly slightly bored) fan took matters into his own hands, modding GTA V to create a neo-dystopian universe not dissimilar to that of Cyberpunk’s Night City.

As seen in screenshots taken by EA DICE’s Petri Levälahti, the city of Los Santos has been completely transformed into a replica of Night City, emanating the same neon grungy feel of the futuristic metropolis.

Not only this, the screenshots show the city’s inhabitants, all of whom would fit perfectly into the Cyberpunk universe. Several colorful female characters are shown, each sporting cybergoth style outfits, large cyber cannons and robotic visors.

 

A wave of positive feedback greeted Levälahti, with GTA and Cyberpunk fans alike all desperate to explore the streets of Levälahti’s GTA Night City. Several others came forward with their own futuristic mods of the game, each one sporting similar traits.

Despite the long wait and the mystery surrounding the game, it’s clear that gamers from all different backgrounds, game specialities and corners of the globe are excited to get their hands on Cyberpunk 2077. By modding GTA V, Levälahti has clearly started a trend, as well as helped add to the buzz surrounding the imminent release of the newest sensational title.

So strap yourselves in for a wild ride around Night City. Whether it’s the GTA version or Cyberpunk one: it’s going to be fun.

Despite suffering numerous long delays, fans are still hyped for CD Projekt Red’s dystopian Cyberpunk 2077. As the release date edges closer, we’ve had our first look at the game on PS5, as well as a comparison between PS4 Pro and PS5 graphics.

Cyberpunk 2077 is shaping up to be one of the most hotly-anticipated games of 2020. With its dystopian open-world setting, insane customization, and intriguing storyline, it looks set to become a truly epic title.

It’s not without its issues though, having suffered a number of consecutive delays, along with controversy over the dreaded ‘crunch’ for devs.

However, it seems that we may be on the ‘home stretch’ for the release of Cyberpunk 2077. Devs have now released the final teaser of gameplay footage, along with a first glimpse at the game running on the next-gen PS5.

There’s no doubt that Cyberpunk is a fantastic looking game. With cutting-edge graphics, the visuals have stunned even the most doubtful of critics. So far, we’ve only seen the game on current-gen consoles, but CD Projekt Red has now revealed the first preview of the game running on the next-gen PlayStation 5.

Technically, the game is running via backward compatibility in the footage. However, the game will be available on PS5 at launch.

Starting at the very beginning, the footage shows the initial stages of the ‘Nomad’ life path. On PS4 pro the game looks absolutely gorgeous, with plenty of fantastic light effects, incredible detail, and lots of immersive scenes.

However, around the 4:30 mark in the video below, the footage switches over to PS5, and the difference is immediately noticeable.

Next-gen footage starts at 4:32

The shadows become immediately deeper, without losing any of the detail. The rain also suddenly takes on a whole new dimension, creating streaks on the windows that look impressively realistic.

Lighting also changes, with more natural-looking flares when looking up at streetlights through car windows, and the traditional ‘haze’ from the neon lights of the city also taking on more of a prominent role.

Highlights become more controlled, and the falloff between light and dark extremes feel more natural, with a more gradual transition between the two.

Sadly, we were only shown just over two minutes’ worth of footage. However, if those two minutes are anything to go by, Cyberpunk 2077 is going to look absolutely fantastic on next-gen consoles.
