Cyberpunk 2077 didn’t have the smoothest launch like CD Projekt Red originally hoped for. They had a lot of hype to live up to and unfortunately, their latest open-ended RPG has been filled with bugs.
They’ve since released patches to address some of the most pressing issues, but they’ll have to continue working hard if they ever want to get back to the same position they were in prior to Cyberpunk 2077’s release.
Despite the bugs — particularly on older consoles — the community seems to be making the most out of the incomplete game. That is particularly true in regards to the modding community.
A new mod actually just released that gives Cyberpunk 2077 a third-person perspective. It has been a highly requested feature, even when this sci-fi RPG was first teased those many years ago. Up until this point, the only way to enjoy third-person was when you were inside a vehicle driving around.
First-person really does immerse you in Night City, but it lacks in showing off your character customizations. This new third-person mod aims to fix that and give Cyberpunk 2077 a different feel visually. The mod comes from Jelle Bakker.
Players that want to download this mod just have to follow a couple of installation steps. Overall, it’s a cool way to view the game. That being said, it’s important to note it’s still a work in progress. You’ll find some issues movement-wise, especially if you take corners too quickly.
Still, it shows the potential that Cyberpunk 2077 has yet. The game may have had a rough launch and probably has left a lot of gamers feeling down because they expected so many things, but at least the modding community is starting to rev up. That could introduce all kinds of open sandbox opportunities that weren’t previously possible.
And as time goes on, you can bet CD Projekt Red will do everything in their power to improve upon issues that are still affecting a good majority of players. Also as time goes on, this third-person mod will continue to get refined.
Then, players will be able to decide how they want to see their character. Having options never is a bad thing and for a game like Cyberpunk 2077 with its bevvy of character customizations, third-person perspective really is a no-brainer to utilize from time to time. It gives you a reason to change your character in unique ways based on what you’re feeling in the moment.
