A brand-new Cyberpunk 2077 ReShade mod has been released which simulated HDR through the ‘True HDR’ method, improving visual effects, color, and depth.

Cyberpunk 2077 is by no means an ugly game on PC. On the contrary – it might very well be the best-looking PC title to date. Those, however, who want to spice things up even more and experience some additional eye candy, might want to give this new ReShade a try.

Created by modder ‘Vanguard1776’, the ‘Autonomous ReShade’ for the PC version of CDPR’s hit title is a software-based HDR method that mimics ‘Real HDR’. The Reshade uses a software-based HDR method that renders the HDR texture internally. The result is then transformed so it can be displayed on SDR displays. As such, this method can’t be compared to the ‘Real HDR’ method, for HDR displays, which is a hardware-based method. While it doesn’t look as good as hardware-based HDR, the results are impressive nonetheless.

Down below you’ll find some comparison screenshots of the ReShade in action (first is with True HDR Reshade and second is the vanilla version):
