Years before the release of Cyberpunk 2077, the developers had explained their stance on limiting the game to a first-person perspective. Unlike The Witcher 3, where players already have Geralt, Cyberpunk 2077 lets them create their own character. Hence, first-person was one of the ways to make users feel more connected with their self-designed characters.

Regardless, the TPP mod is here, and players around the world love it already.

How to install the third-person perspective mod for Cyberpunk 2077

Modding refers to the act of altering software to facilitate a task that the developer didn’t introduce originally. Even though the process is as complex as it sounds, modding is a very common practice in the gaming industry.

Jelle Bakker’s mod is a plugin for the Cyber Engine Tweaks mod, hence, you must download the latest version of it. The TPP mod further offers two separate files based on the gender of your character. Download the desired file and install it to play the game from a third-person perspective.

Upon successfully installing the mod, the game will have four extra camera angles. The developer is certain of significantly enhancing the mod’s features with frequent updates. As for now, V’s basic movements work perfectly, and the combat still requires some improvements.

Here’s YouTuber Slothability explaining the installation process, and demonstrating several actions like running, jumping, bunny hopping, climbing, sliding, and crouch walking, among others:
