‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Has Awesome Flying Cars Now

Among the many things that were missing from Cyberpunk 2077’s vision of the future, the inability to fly around the city in any sort of vehicle seemed like a pretty big oversight. While there are a number of scripted sequences that will take you in hovering/flying airborne vehicles, players cannot pilot them, yet another thing that a game like Grand Theft Auto has had for decades, that Cyberpunk 2077 didn’t include.

Enter modders, yet again.

As ever, the Cyberpunk 2077 modding community continues to be exceptionally talented, and now there’s a new flying cars mod called “Let There be Flight” which inserts hovercars into the game. Not just cars that can fly, but once that have been redesigned to have actual thrusters, Blade Runner-esque engine sounds, and custom controls for moving around.

You can see the mod in action below:

And you can download it here if you want to try it out for yourself.

The mod was released just under two weeks ago, and is continually being improved. Plans are to expand the concept to more vehicles in the game.

I very much doubt that even with the upcoming major DLC coming to Cyberpunk, that we will see flying vehicles there. The game is very much restricted to cars and bikes, and its transportation options seem to have been one thing that got reduced in scope by the time the game came out. There aren’t even NPC motorcycles, only the player can ride them. There’s also an unfinished rail system that ended up being finished and fleshed out by, you guessed it, modders.

I really do like the flying car mod though, as it gives off extremely distinct Blade Runner 2049 vibes, and does not break immersion, given that this is a time period that has flying craft, we just can’t fly any of them ourselves in the game. Something to think about for the inevitable sequel, I suppose.

For now, I remain relatively unattached to Cyberpunk until another major patch hits, or DLC marketing ramps up, which is supposed to happen before the end of the year. We’ll see what that brings, but the coolest additions still may end up being mods like this one for a while.
