At E3, CD Projekt Red is giving live demonstrations of its next title, which just happens to be a first-person RPG.
First Person RPG?? I thought it would have an option to play in third person.
I trust them to make this choice. They feel it makes the game more visceral and immersive. The game sounds amazing and if this is the route they want to take, I fully support them. “This first taste of Cyberpunk 2077 was unexpected and nothing short of amazing We know CD Projekt Red has a firm handle on player choice and narrative – which are both evidenced here – but now we see this dev has first-person shooter chops as well. The combat looked dynamic, fun, and filled with RPG elements galore” Can’t wait to see more.
If they want people to trust them with such a controversal decision why not show actually gameplay, even if it's just 10-20 seconds long to show the game in first person? Something to say "Here you go guys, it's in first person BUT LOOK, awesome right...nothing to worry about, as you can see this is why we chose to make it this way". It helps with the backlash.
Maybe they’re not ready too. Get over it.
Oooo look at the big man Jeez. How immature can you get
Haha. Immature? I’m not one of the people crying because a developer chose to make a game the way they want too.
@ foxtrot we didn't see last of us 2 or tsushima gameplay til E3. They'll show it when they're ready.
I'm glad they're upsetting you Foxtrot. Most games you don't like I tend to love, so that's a good sign. A good indication of how good a game is is how upset you are. That's my N4G litmus test. Really looking forward to the game now, cheers.
@-Foxtrot, honestly, why should they care about the backlash? What impact does it have? They know what they're doing and the game isn't close to release.
Exactly. They would NOT do this unless they thought it was a good decision. They didn’t do it to make it more like Cod. They are doing it to give us an up close experience with the world they are crafting.
@Foxtrot. They did! They trusted journalists and the backlash is absurd. Imagine if they showed it to the world of knuckleheads who just follow the latest opinion and retweet a million times. This is a bit more controlled. They are obviously not hiding anything. And we have known this for quite some time.
I really thought it would of been 3rd person after seeing the character in the trailer but maybe I gotta play it to know what feels best
This game going to be a massive flop!! Only first person?!! Idiots!!
You don't really believe that?
I bought 4 times th Witcher and I love to do this again! But with cyberpunk they not going to se my money! Fuck them!
There is plenty of reactions from outlets who got to see gameplay before us praising the game, i'm not worried about a camera angle ruining the game.
Lol bunch of cry babies! First Person is much better anyways, I’m so stoked for this game , and was even happier when I found out it’s FPS.. Gunplay will always be better with first person!
Lol they're not going to see your money. Honestly I'm more worried about days gone than this game, after it's mediocre gameplay.
This feels like RE 7 all the way... Someone love it, many hate it.
That's funny. Having known very little about what this game was going to be until now, I am probably going to get it JUST BECAUSE it's first person.
Idiots?? Dude... Smh :-(
nah they said you only see your character during cutscenes and in inventory menu which is missed opportunity because no amount of RPG element would add RPG feel to a FPS game at least in my opinion just like deus ex.
Elder Scrolls says hi.
I'll never understand this mindset, although I know there are a lot of people that share your thoughts. Why does seeing your character help you role play? Wouldn't seeing through the character's eyes be the ultimate way to role play? Seems that way to me. The first person view is a large part of why Elder Scrolls and Fallout are my favorite RPGs.
-Foxtrot I always see your comments.. Nothing short of trying to trigger ppl. Nothing intelligent and always some excuse on why this and that. Leave his impression as it is. He told us this and that is that.
Excited clapping with simultaneous whistling at the top of my lungs. =)
TBH i am disappointed to learn that its a 1st person RPG But from what i read it sound interesting will need to see gameplay to decide whether i will spend on this game or not
First Person RPG, like Deus Ex and System SHock? Excellent, most immersive way to play.
Yeah I am suddenly very excited for this game.
This is one of the most overreacted things I've ever witnessed in gaming. All this backlash for a camera view... Some of the greatest RPGs ever have been first person and they've said the game was built around the first person perspective.
Haven't had a game in this genre since the original Mass Effect.
I trust them. And I guarantee this game will be exactly what I think. It will be an amazing rpg in an insanely realized and immersive world, unparalleled story and questing, with great customization. We view games like half life and Bioshock as classics, some of the best games ever made because of their ability to mix FPS with rpg and world building elements. I applaud the decision because these types of games are rare and difficult to make. I have the utmost faith in them!
so what's point of all the hairstyles, tattoos, outfits and customizations when we won't even be able to see our character while moving? should have just put in the 3rd person option like Skyrim, which I only played in ,3rd person.
You'll still be able to see your character in cut-scenes but I see your point.
Or when you interact with anyone just like the Witcher 3
Exactly my thought, I know you'll get to see them in cutscenes but what's the point of that...seems like they are giving us all this stuff yet limiting it because of it being in first person. I mean I doubt we'll be in cutscenes that long to even notice, we'll be listening to what's going on.
only this decision cd project shoots itself into its own goal. fan does not forgive this stupid decisions for me this game does not exist any more. idiots.
Have you ever played an RPG before? The cutscenes will be half the game. I don't understand why this has been controversial at all. CDPR wanted to make a first-person RPG. Okay. So what? I don't typically play first-person because I don't consider the games that use them (TES/Fallout/FPS) to be very interesting games. I know CDPR is going to deliver a great game though, so I don't care which camera angle they choose.
Will probably see them in the dialogue stuff like the witcher camera.
Do like rainbow six new vegas where you have gameplay 1st person and while in cover you are 3rd person I like CD project red but they need to treat their fans right show us this gameplay. Fans have been waiting for so long now
Same thing I've always said about Elder Scrolls and Fallout. Hell, any first person game where you create a character. If you're meant to play it in the first person....why have a customize character option?
Skyrim had first and third person perspective and you could switch between those modes on the fly. Personally, when fighting in Skyrim I preferred third person perspective which is rather strange since I preferred the first-person perspective when fighting in Oblivian. Of course, other gamers would prefer different styles but at least in both games, you had the option.
Those modes were clunky as hell. Oblivion’s was straight up unplayable. Even Bethesda said that the games were made to be placed in the first person. Forcing yourself to play in a mode that is less than ideal, just to justify the character creator, doesn’t cut it.
Do you run around staring at your character constantly in 3rd person games?? I mean, shouldn't you be looking at where you're going, and the enemies and stuff? I can't believe there is an uproar over this. lol
The entitlement coming out of your comment is mind boggling. 99% of players played Skyrim in first person alway, so what exactly is your point?
Oh damn first person view? I dunno about that, really hoping it will be third person view. If it stays in first person view I may end up passing it unless its more of an action RPG.
Exactly what’s I’m going to do. Idiots!! Announcing game 2012 a NOw everything looks like one massive mistake!! If I want to play game like that in first person I can already play human revolution etc... idiots it’s going to be flop:/
I'm sorry but that's poor logic. There are many games with first person viewpoint and many with third person viewpoint. I could just as easily say "if I wanted to play a game in third person I would play Uncharted, Tomb Raider, Bloodborne, Mass Effect or any other of the thousands of games with that perspective". Some people might prefer one or the other, but ultimately it's up to the developer to decide what's best for their game. Personally, I'm getting tired of the third person perspective because most of the games I've played lately use that perspective and it's all beginning to feel a bit samey. A well done first person view can be very immersive, in my opinion.
Yeah...Skyrim sucks cause it is first person /s...and dont say you played it in. 3rd person cause not many did.
Wow... I’m speechless. I pray to god this isn’t true. First person???? Why the fuck would they try to make the trailer feel like it’s a open world 3rd person rpg? Especially after the way they have described the game.. character customization?? But you won’t be able to see it? Driving cars, and vehicles are in first person Smh... let’s pray to god CD project isn’t this stupid. They are supposed to be the “saviors of gaming” Witcher 3 wasn’t first person...so why make this one only first person?
Let’s calm down. I’m sure they know what they’re doing
I don't pray to god for anything, man. That's asking a lot.
Killzone was in first person, so why make Horizon third person? See how one has nothing to do with the other?
One was a shooter going to action adventure. this is from rpg to rpg.
Fallout was an isometric top down game and it went to first person and now it's one of the best RPG franchises out there. I think the game will do just fine.
So 3rd person = saviors of gaming and 1st person = really stupid I think there’s a little more to it than that Lol
I really don't like 1st person but I'll buy it regardless Cruz its CD PROJECT RED
Can we not jump to conclusions??? You have not seen the gameplay and CD is being very quiet about things. There may be a very good chance that this game has both 1st and 3rd person. And if it doesn't? We start a revolution and demand such changes...cause us PC gamers are good at that!
Love first person games, great to hear that.
Kids these days. They are used to 3rd person, get hurt, hide behind the wall, wait till recover... repeat.
I mean it's not like that's the same thing that happens in most fps games that adults these days play like call of duty, halo etc. oh wait
Agree 100% adults these days, uh? But I was thinking more like old school, which is the vibe I get from this game.
This comment doesn't make any sense. Are you saying that kids don't play games like COD, Battlefield, etc where you do the exact same thing and that adults don't play third person games with cover mechanics? "Kids these days." 3rd person cover shooters have been prevalent for over a decade now as well. People weren't even asking for a cover shooter. They just want third person because that's what they've come to expect from CD Projekt Red. It's not that complicated.
Don´t want to bitch about it though I was hoping for a 3rd person perspective in this game, at least an option but I trust CD Project to deliver a great experince at the end of the day.
It should just be 3rd person. It would be strange if ND all the sudden made 1st person games. Same applies here.
It should be whatever the developer envision and they have openly discussed the reasons to why it's first person. What we prefer is a matter of preference but you can't really tell an artist how to paint his or her picture. That applies in general wether we like it or not.
I was hoping for a darker, grittier Blade Runner vibe.
Same, guess we’ll have to wait and see
Yeah, I was hoping for something a little more mature looking than what we saw. Going from the original reveal trailer to the most recent trailer reminded me of the tonal shift between Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2. I'm sure it will still be a great game, as CD Project Red are top teir devs, but between that and it being revealed as a third person game my interest has waned a bit. Not really what I was expecting or hoping for, even if it ends up being amazing.
Eh, like Watchdogs mixed with Sunset Overdrive and a bit of punk. I liked the first trailer very much as well with the darker vibe.
