CDPR might be preparing to add a transmog system to Cyberpunk 2077

It appears that CDPR is working on a feature for Cyberpunk 2077 aimed toward those who hate choosing between functionality and fashion.


CD Projekt RED has finally released Cyberpunk 2077 to next-gen consoles. In addition to visual upgrades, the PS5 and Xbox Series S/X versions of Cyberpunk 2077 come with several updates and fixes. Although the verdict is still out on whether Cyberpunk 2077 is finally living up to its potential or not, this hasn't stopped CDPR from working on updates. Case in point, there's evidence of a hidden feature that didn't make it to the final version of patch 1.5.

While it doesn't officially exist for now, players can use Cyberpunk 2077's console to enable the game's hidden "transmog" feature.

According to DJ_Kovrik, there is a hidden feature in Cyberpunk 2077 following the recent update that the in-game files refer to as a "transmog" system. Not only that, but players can even access the said feature using the Game.EnableTransmog() command via Cyberpunk 2077's console. Although it doesn't look fully fleshed out right now, the basics are there - the feature lets players hide the headgear that they are wearing. Of course, because DJ_Kovrik is a modder, he couldn't help but make an offshoot of the said feature. Instead of just working on the face and head, the Hide Your Gear mod hides any piece of gear that players are wearing.

The most interesting part of this half-baked and hidden Cyberpunk 2077 feature is that it has the makings of something more. A "transmog" system suggests that players will eventually be able to keep the aesthetics of a gear they have acquired. This would allow for further customization of what players want to wear and look like in Cyberpunk 2077, which is one of the best features of games like Diablo 3, Outriders and World of Warcraft.

Of course, anything more than the ability to hide headgear in Cyberpunk 2077 is wishful thinking. Even if the word "transmog" suggests a more robust functionality, CDPR probably just went with the name "because".

CDPR still hasn't confirmed when Cyberpunk 2077's next big update is going to arrive.

Having said that, the ability to hide headgear so that you can see the face of your character in Cyberpunk 2077, the face that you spent countless hours crafting, is still nice to have. Just don't expect anything more than what modders have already found. There's a chance that CDPR might improve on the currently existing hidden feature if there's enough demand for it, but it's also highly unlikely that this will happen.

The Polish studio still has a long way to go as far as fixing Cyberpunk 2077 goes. Not to mention, CDPR still hasn't released a substantial story content update that involves more than just fixing and removing things that shouldn't have been in Cyberpunk 2077 in the first place.

Ultimately, fans should just be happy that Cyberpunk 2077 is at least a fully working title right now. The developers certainly seem to think that they've done a good enough job to make Cyberpunk 2077 into an RPG. In addition, CDPR is putting in work on optimizing Cyberpunk 2077 so that Xbox Series S owners can enjoy playing the game with higher framerates.

Cyberpunk 2077's next gen versions is a good start for CDPR's redemption tour.
