Cyberpunk 2077 Receives Third-Person Mode in This New Mod

CD Projekt Red didn’t do it, so a modder did instead - introducing Cyberpunk 2077’s new third-person mode! The mod, uploaded to Nexus Mods in the last couple of days, allows players to play the game in the third person, a rather janky but enjoyable addition to the latest entry from the Polish developer.

For those of us who get a tad sick playing the first-person open-world juggernaut Cyberpunk 2077, we have been treated with an ease to our woes. First-person games can be a problem for players who experience motion sickness; an issue especially present on console, where you often don’t find a field of view slider!

If this describes you, then you have been served a fantastic addition to Cyberpunk 2077 – if you play on PC, that is. The mod is accessible now, and once downloaded, all you need to do is extract the contents into the folder Cyberpunk 2077\bin\x64 on your computer. Keep in mind: you must first install the optimization mod ‘Cyber Engine Tweaks’, or it will not work!

We’ve jumped into the mod and gotta say, it’s pretty great if you want to take in the sights of Night City without feeling ill. Please note that there are two versions of the mod, one for those playing as male V, and one for those who play female V. We ran into this problem, but found the alternative mod quite easily. It was labeled with the corresponding gender (a-durrrrr). That made us feel pretty stupid when we realized, so look out for that doozy!

The third-person mod was put together by modder Jelle Bakker, under the name “TPP MOD WIP third-person", and it works great! As with everything Cyberpunk 2077, it is... dodgy. We recommend not to go swimming with this mod enable (activate it by pressing B) because, well, heh...

So, if you want to enjoy Night City without feeling nauseous, then this is the mod for you... if you play on PC. However, keep in mind that it does look super f**king wonky, and it seems that V enjoys gliding, but hey! It’s Cyberpunk! It’s already a buggy mess, so there’s not really anything to lose here.

The swimming might be frightening, and the mod may reveal more bugs than ever before in Cyberpunk 2077, but if you like the idea of walking the streets of Night City in third-person, this is definitely the mod for you!
