Not content with the stock gameplay experience of The Witcher 3? Help from the modding community may soon be on the horizon. Developer CD Projekt Red has released what it's calling the Modkit, a set of tools that gives tinkerers access to the inner workings of the game.
The Modkit has several major components. Modders can change the appearance of in-game objects with texture import and export, replace models with mesh substitution, and use scripts to toy with gameplay mechanics, like "creating new, custom skills for character development, adding new features to the game, modifying aspects of enemy AI, making changes to UI, and so on," according to this Gamespot interview.
That same interview does make clear that the Modkit isn't a fully-fledged mod editor like Bethesda's GECK: it's just a collection of tools that more experienced modders can use to work their magic. Those who want to get hacking can download the Modkit from Nexus Mods today. CD Projekt Red has also posted some documentation and sample mods on its official forums.
