CD Projekt’s Free Development Tool REDkit Goes Into Closed Beta
Remember REDkit? It’s the development tool that CD Projekt uses with its proprietary REDengine, and the modding kit the company is planning to make available. If you paid attention and signed up for the closed beta back in September, you should start watching your inbox — REDkit’s beta starts now.
According to a press release, “over 100 modding teams selected from a pool of over 600 squads were given access to it. These modders will assist in the development and perfection of the tools and the game engine itself.”
CD Projekt says you won’t have to wait long to get hold of the modding tools for The Witcher 2, however. It’s slated for a wide release in the first quarter of 2013, and it’ll be free to anyone who owns a copy of The Witcher 2. CD Projekt is using the REDengine on its other upcoming RPGs as well, so presumably you’ll be able to use it to make Cyberpunk 2077 mods in the future when that’s released.
Anybody itching to start modding Witcher 2? Let us know in the comments.
