Despite warning Cyberpunk 2077 PC players not to install mods or custom saves because a vulnerability could allow them to “run code on PC”, CD Projekt Red has released a hotfix that allows mods to be installed safely.
Patch 1.12 appears to include only this modification fix and no other updates. Since its release on December 10, CD Projekt Red has released several updates for the controversial game, including one that unfortunately added a game-breaking bug, although thankfully it was fixed fairly quickly.
Hotfix 1.12 is now available on PC!

Since this review focuses on PC mods, it will not be coming to the Xbox One and PlayStation version of the game.
Unfortunately, mods that allow players have sex with Keanu Reeves’ character, Johnny Silverhand they are still banned.
The developer says that a 1.2 patch that is a “bigger and more significant update” is still on the horizon, as well as free DLC and a patch that will optimize the game for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
