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.
