Surprise, surprise, Cyberpunk 2077 will not be a third-person RPG like the Witcher games. Instead, CD Projekt RED has decided to go with a first-person perspective this time around. The game will feature damage numbers coming off enemies during combat similar to what is seen in games like Borderlands or Destiny.
i think they’re going first person as it lightens the rendering load (cause cyberpunk looks like a very graphical intensive title), not a full character has to be rendered on the screen all the time and you’ll probably see the main character only during cut scenes (if there’s any)
i’m not fussed about it being FPS, if it has the fluid gunplay feel of Destiny or even Borderlands. I just hope they don’t make the same mistake that they made with TW3 where they pad the game with superfluous content just to bump up the hours. (I’m looking at you, daft Dwarf-Ciri quest).
I am super amped for the setting though. Really love dystopian cyberpunk feel and theme.
Hmm, that’s a pity. I generally hate first person games and find it very hard to get into. At least with Deus Ex, they switched to 3rd person when taking cover which helped since taking cover in first person usually sucks. While some games do work well for FPS like Borderlands which is pretty much just shoot at everything, I think a lot of games would have been better as 3rd person.
With all that said, I’m still totally buying this on release. It is CDPR after all.
