Better than the original!

An awesome mod for Cyberpunk 2077 on PC gives the game a Borderlands-style visual makeover and it looks awesome!

The mod is named Borderlandfy2077, and has been created by pro modder Salmo. It replaces Cyberpunk 2077’s more realistic visuals with a Borderlands-style theme, providing the environment with a cel-shaded aesthetic.

To run the Borderlands mod, you’ll need the latest version of the Reshade which essentially tweaks the game’s visuals and colour settings.

The mod, first spotted by IGN, also utilises a Z buffer and adjusts the contrast of Cyberpunk 2077 to its fancy new visual design.

To be honest, I think it makes the game look even better. It kinda reminds me of the bonus filters you might unlock for completing some games. Check it out in the YouTube video below!

The mod creator notes that applying the Borderlands mod shouldn’t take a massive hit on performance, so the game should pretty much run the same as it did before.

While Cyberpunk 2077 definitely has its issues, the PC version is considered to be the most reliable version to play. Adding this mod to your game could definitely improve on the original CD Projekt Red experience!

Let’s hope that we’ll see something similar come from the developer in the future. A nice filter is a great unlockable for big games like Cyberpunk 2077. Plus let’s face it, CDPR couldn’t go wrong with a little audience pandering right now.
