Edgerunners – The Hate : A mysterious new addition has recently been generating some buzz on the Cyberpunk 2077 Nexus Mods page. Aside from not having a description, Edgerunners – The Hate from user anygoodname states that the mod will be taken offline in approximately 24 hours. What the hell is going on?
As far as we can tell, The Hate mod makes every NPC hostile to the player. The mod appears to have been shared as a limited-time challenge that tasks players with surviving in Night City as the public enemy number one. It appears that you do not have long to try out the mod, according to a recent update to its description.
“They’re gonna hate you, Edgerunner,” opens the mod’s short description. “Everybody is against you – they either attack you from everywhere around [or] run away in panic.”
It appears that the objective is to not die before the mod is taken offline, or to give up and uninstall if you are unable to hack it. No video of The Hate in action has been provided, but it is likely that having everyone in Night City dislike you makes for an extremely stressful experience.
Since this mod was shared on Nexus, most of the buzz has been negative, with fans disappointed that anygoodname has not provided much information regarding the mod. However, those who have picked it up appear to be enjoying it.
According to the creator’s latest update, The Hate is halfway through its lifecycle.
“Thank you all for participating in the Edgerunners The Hate event,” says anygoodname. “This mod is going offline in about 48 hrs so hurry up if you still hesitate to learn how it feels to be a hated and pursued Edgerunner in Night City!”
As a result, players will have approximately one more day to test out The Hate for themselves and determine if it lives up to its reputation. Anyhow, it is not often that we see limited-time events like this in the community, so it will be interesting to see if this takes off.
