Cyberpunk 2077 players are still desperate for a third-person mode

Cyberpunk 2077 players are still desperate for a third-person mode

An out-of-body experience

Cyberpunk 2077 is trending everywhere right now and with good reason. The combination of the huge 2.0 patch, Phantom Liberty DLC, plus Twitch drops giving away in-game items, is sparking a kind of soft relaunch for the once troubled game.

CD Projekt Red has been hard at work over the past several months getting Cyberpunk 2077 to a place they perhaps wish it would have shipped as. There are entire systems overhauled, including AI, levelling up and armour usage. However, there is one thing that players still desperately want, three years later - a third-person option.

Take a look at Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty in action below.

There are many reasons players are calling out for this option, but chief among them is wanting to be able to see the character they spent so long creating. One Redditor goes so far as to say, "That's why I only ride motorcycles in this game, so I can see my character."

It's an age old problem. Players spend countless hours creating the perfect character model, or will buy a skin, only to never see it due to the first-person perspective. In a game like Cyberpunk 2077, one full of different clothing and customisation options, it's a shame that we rarely get to see our avatars properly.

A comment on Reddit requests "more mirrored reflections" while another wishes that cutscenes pulled the camera out to third-person, much like Fallout 4 did. It's not that players constantly want to play in third-person, they just want to see the character model more often. Most, in fact, prefer playing in first-person.

One Redditor suggested that players should "use photo mode as much as I do" while another believes that pulling the perspective out to include the character would "take away from the immersion".

PC players are lucky enough to have a mod which shifts the perspective, but this leaves console players wanting. Will we see CD Projekt Red implement it in the future? Or perhaps in the sequel that is on the way?
