Mod tools have launched for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but not in the way fans expected.

Developer CD Projekt Red launched the app, called Modkit, last week, which allows players to alter and swap new models and textures into the game, change item stats, and edit the game's scripting.

That's a far cry from what was promised at launch, which was a Wild Hunt equivalent of the popular, full-featured Redkit suite for The Witcher 2.

Back in January 2014, CDPR CEO Marcin Iwinski claimed that Redkit was coming for the new title, but more recently stopped referring to it by name.

In the release announcement for Modkit, CDPR admitted "the modding tools we are releasing are not an editor. They're meant for people who are somewhat experienced with modding software and are designed to make creating mods easier."

Fans have been expressing their disappointment and anger at the developer via Twitter since the kit was announced.

For better or worse, Modkit can be downloaded now via NexusMods.
