Cyberpunk 2077 was recently updated by CD Projekt Red to the 1.5 Patch, and the renewed life for the game has had fans discussing some of the major mods that are available on PC, including the 3rd Person View.
The CDPR epic has always been a 1st person game, but the potential for players to be able to see their own version of V whilst traversing Night City is something that has been appealing for some long-term players.
There’s no note on whether CDPR ever intends on implementing the perspective into the game officially, but that hasn’t stopped the discussion between fans.
Here’s everything you need to know about the fan discussion surrounding a third-person perspective for Cyberpunk 2077 and the mods that currently allow it on PC.
Cyberpunk 2077 3rd Person View
As noted, Cyberpunk 2077 has purely been a first-person game since its release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Fan-made mods have however given players the opportunity to go through Night City with a different camera mode.
A new video was uploaded to the r/cyberpunkgame subreddit showing a 3rd person mod in action, and it prompted a discussion surrounding the potential of CDPR adopting it for the game on console.
With the game not being designed for a third-person view, the mod does look a little janky, especially when it comes to movement.
Players have noted on the thread that it would take a huge amount for CDPR to introduce it into the game, but in general, they aren’t against it.
One Redditor noted: “This would probably LOOK fine if you cut the movement speed by 50% and put the camera above and behind the right shoulder.
“It’s still too floaty, and propper 3rd person implementation will probably require a lot more resources than a modder has access to.
“Even though I’m a first-person guy, I advocate for the accommodation of a variety of personal preferences.”
Another user on the Subreddit noted that Rockstar was able to pull off the feat back in the Xbox 360/PS3 era. They wrote: “If GTA V can add a fully functioning First Person Mode in a year after its original PS3/360 release, with all animations to this day via GTA Online Updates being 100% fluid…CDPR can pull the same with 3rd Person if they continue to hire Modders and probably have it out by the end of the year.
“Just make cutscenes in First Person still if anything, just like how GTA V and RDR2s cutscenes, if you play in FPV, switches to TPV.”
Again, there’s no news from CDPR themselves as to whether there will be a 3rd person perspective ever added to the game, and at this point it does not appear that likely.
