Cyberpunk 2077 is a FPS with third-person vehicles, but don’t worry, it’s all RPG

I’ve just sat through 50 minutes of straight-up, honest to goodness, violent-as-fuck Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay.

First impressions? Holy fuck. Also, it’s a first-person game, despite CD Projekt’s roots in third person games with The Witcher series. Don’t fear though, as much as shooting and gunplay are crucial – and brutal – it’s very much a modern action role-playing game.

I’ve written up more detailed impressions here, but I needed to share the surprise of Cyberpunk’s FPS view and how it was enhanced by the sheer beautifiul chaos and detail of the game.

I haven’t sat through such a confident, explosive and complete demo of a game in years. I shit you negative.

Other things to note? You can switch to a third person perspective when behind the wheel of a vehicle, as you explore the six different districts of Night City.

You play as V, a predefined character of sorts, but she/he is very customisable. We’re talking everything from gender to tattoos, cybernetic implants, weapons and skills.

You need to know that all the hype is pretty much justified for Cyberpunk 2077. It’s going to blow out your optics.

The Witcher series is literally the only thing they've done. It's not like they are a long time running developer that always made third person games and decided to branch out to FPS. 

From someone who isn't much of a fan of FPS, I'm always down with 1st person RPG's. The Borderlands series are like one of my favorite games ever. I'd argue there are too many 3rd person RPG's on the market, and not enough 1st person ones. They always reserve the FPS genre to bland military shooters.

Hearing that CDProjekt decided to go with first person is such a relief - this is going to be badass.
