All of Cyberpunk 2077’s cutscenes will be locked to first-person perspective, according to CD Projekt Red.Since the core gameplay of Cyberpunk 2077 is also first-person, this means players will rarely see their character’s appearance. The studio’s global community lead, Marcin Momot, says this is a deliberate decision that prioritises narrative flow.

He tweeted, “Achieving full immersion in an FPP game is extremely important and the decision made by the team to go 100% first person in @CyberpunkGame is something that will benefit it greatly from gameplay and story-telling perspectives.”

He added that players would still be able to see what their character looks like in the inventory screen, during driving sequences, in reflections and “very occasionally” in some cutscenes. Any sex scenes in the game will play out from a first-person perspective, according to the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account.

Cyberpunk 2077 builds upon science fiction’s body modification subculture with a deep character creator. Players can combine male and female biology, add surface wiring, and adjust the colour of nearly every feature. As such, the news has upset some fans, with one Twitter user replying, “such a shame to have heavy customisation but never see our character. For me this is a huge mistake.”

However, an interview by German website NightCityLife translated on the Cyberpunk 2077 forums points out that the tight spaces and buildings in Cyberpunk are much better suited to first-person than the open landscapes of The Witcher. Senior level designer at CD Project Red, Miles Tost, explained that third-person view means developers need to leave a bit of extra space at a building’s entrance to allow the camera to sweep in behind without bugging out. First-person means they don’t have to worry about that.
