Cyberpunk 2077 Third Person Settings And Mod

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 that has been receiving a lot of concern is the game's chosen point of view. 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?

Mods

A Cyberpunk 2077 mod will let players finally 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!

Driving

Driving in video games always feels weird. Unless it's a dedicated simulator, trying to manoeuvre in first-person feels nearly impossible. Thankfully, you can toggle the settings 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.

Regular gameplay

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 3rd person option being added. We'll continue to update this page when we learn more.
