For fans of CD Projekt RED’s previous games, it might be expected that Cyberpunk 2077 can be played in third-person. Being first-person only would force players into a more immersive experience, but might not be how some users want to enjoy the game. Here’s the need-to-know about a Cyberpunk 2077 third-person mode for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One.
Can you play Cyberpunk 2077 in third-person?
Cyberpunk 2077 can be played in third-person during driving sections. For on-foot gameplay, the view is locked in a first-person POV.
A full Cyberpunk 2077 third-person camera will no doubt be added in the future, either through a mod or through official developer support.
At the time of writing, however, Cyberpunk 2077 is first-person only. There is no way to switch to a third-person view.
While it was initially planned to be an option, as seen in previous CD Projekt RED games like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the developer has decided to only offer a first-person camera in Cyberpunk 2077.
On the bright side, this should result in better player immersion from users looking at the game through the eyes of V. On the other hand, having options is always nice and some players will no doubt be disappointed at the lack of third-person.
Modders are expected to start working their magic on an unofficial Cyberpunk 2077 third-person mod, which will likely be janky but at least somewhat functional. Stay tuned for more information on that.
