Phantom Liberty may as well have made Cyberpunk 2077 a brand-new game, but if you want even more, furries are now an option.

With the release of Phantom Liberty, popular opinion on Cyberpunk has almost completely reversed. The game’s absurd glitchiness and half-baked world have been finely tuned for almost three years now, and it now stands as a great example for the genre.

This has led many players to start revisiting the game’s extensive modding community, and one of the most popular essentially adds furries into Cyberpunk 2077.

Body modification is extremely common in Night City, so altering one’s body to look like an animal is only one of many logical extremes. One fan agreed, creating a mod for the game called Biosculpted Exotics.

Created by CobaltOwl, the mod adds new visual features to the player character and certain NPC. However, not only are the animalistic mods available for the player, they’re actually lore-accurate to the Cyberpunk tabletop game.

Furries in Cyberpunk 2077 are modded in from the original game

Exotics, which are essentially furries, have their roots in the tabletop game that Cyberpunk 2077 is based on.

In the original RPG, Exotics represent the most extreme form of body modification in the far future. The subculture was introduced in Chromebook Volume 2, a cyberware-focused supplement book published in 1992 for Cyberpunk 2020.

These people have spent tons of time and money replacing parts of their bodies with animalistic equivalents. The book notes that Exotics are commonly found together as members of the same gang, which often take on animal themes.

CobaltOwl, who may or not be a furry himself, added several cosmetic options to the game to reflect the canon existence of furries. The characters are relatively obscure even in the tabletop game, not being mentioned much outside of Chromebook Volume 2.

However, if you’re the kind of player who’s interested in such things, you can complete the entirety of the game as a human-animal hybrid thanks to CobaltOwl.
