Cyberpunk 2077 is CD Projekt Red's latest entry into the gaming world, and while it received decent reviews early on, things quickly turned sour. Though, past all the bugs and glitches on current-gen consoles, one aspect of the game has been receiving a lot of concern.

This concern is surrounding point of view, specifically a third person setting. As opposed to their last title, The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person game for the most part.

But, is there a way to get third-person view? In this guide, we explain how you can mod and adjust settings for Cyberpunk 2077 to get a third person view of Night City.

Is There A Third Person View Mod for Cyberpunk 2077?

There is a Cyberpunk 2077 mod lets players experience the game in third-person! It's still being worked on, so expect hiccups here and there, especially as some animations were designed to never be seen because of the game's first-person only perspective. The mod was made by Jelle Bakker, and can be installed after you've downloaded Cyber Engine Tweaks.

Then, all you have to do is grab the TPP mod, with different versions for male and female characters for weird technical reasons, and extract it to the \Cyberpunk 2077\bin\x64 directory. With that all done, you should be sorted, at least on PC, anyway!

Driving in video games always feels peculiar. Unless it's a dedicated simulator, trying to manoeuvre in first-person feels nearly impossible. Thankfully, you can toggle the in-game settings for driving in Cyberpunk 2077 to a third-person view! This has been in the game since launch, and we've certainly found it to be an easier viewpoint for getting around the tight streets of Night City.

Will There Be A Third Person View Option in Cyberpunk 2077 Soon?

It has all but been confirmed by the developers that the game will only be in the first person, outside of driving and without using mods. They have noted that they want players to be fully immersed within the Cyberpunk world over the course of the game. As such, there has been no official word on an official third person option being added. We'll continue to update this page when we learn more.
