Yesterday, we reported on the news that Cyberpunk 2077 cutscenes will be in the first-person perspective, including the sex scenes. It was always believed that Cyberpunk 2077 would have third-person perspective cutscenes, especially after developer CD Projekt Red recently talked more about the character creation system and the ability to be genderfluid in the game. Now, CD Projekt Red has explained the shift to first-person cutscenes and when you will be able to see your character.

Taking to Twitter, Marcin Momot, CD Projekt Red’s global community lead, explained the shift to the first-person cutscenes for Cyberpunk 2077 and cleared up some confusion. It turns out that on rare occasions, you will be able to see your character in cutscenes and there are a few other ways you will be able to see your character as well, for example, in a mirror or when driving.
Marcin Momot explains that:
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#1ced55″ class=”” size=”22″]Achieving full immersion in an FPP game is extremely important and the decision made by the team to go 100% first person in Cyberpunk 2077 is something that will benefit it greatly from gameplay and story-telling perspectives. That said, players will still be able to see their characters in the inventory screen, during driving sequences, in mirrors and, very occasionally, in some of the cut-scenes.[/perfectpullquote]
What “very occasionally” means exactly remains to be seen, but don’t expect to see your Cyberpunk 2077 character often, unless you stare in every mirror you find in the game.
