When it comes to PC Gaming and the various benefits it can offer the gaming experience, many people in the community repeatedly mention the possibility of using mods to modify that experience, dramatically increasing the possible options. In the case of role-playing games, some creative ones they go further, creating mods developed ad hoc to add an erotic context to the experience. It happened with Skyrim, with Fallout and it was clear that the same thing would happen with cyberpunk 2077, the last title of CD Project Red.
It had been circulating online for days a mod capable of changing cutscene models, allowing players not only to reinterpret the game's storyline with their favorite characters, but also to stage various sex scenes with other characters, as Johnny Silverhand (played by Keanu Reeves). However it seems that the presence of a real actor in this scheme led CD Projekt to intervene, asking for the removal of the mod.
Here are the words of CD Projekt on the story, released during an interview with Eurogamer:
“Our most important rule when it comes to user-created content, especially mods, is that you can't harm others. In the case of model swapping, especially during explicit situations, it could be perceived as such by the people who lent us their likeness to be able to create the Cyberpunk 2077 characters. For this reason, when creating this content, creatives need to ensure the consent of all interested parties (which may include people outside of CD Projekt Red). For the characters invented for the game, we allow you to modify the game and have fun. But when it comes to real person models who have asked to play the game, we kindly ask you to avoid using them in situations that could be offensive without their permission. "
What do you think? Do you agree with this decision? In a society that is increasingly aware of the risks of the web, is it right to limit erotic devices of this kind, even if they are contained within a playful context?
