Rowley believes that the first-person perspective will best allow the game to fully "immerse the player in that world", and that the vast detail and atmosphere will allow the player to feel like they've walked through their screen into their corrupt universe.

CD Projekt Red also made mention of the fact that Cyberpunk 2077 will feature the studio's "hallmark of choices and consequences" suggesting that each utterance and action will have weight in the grand scheme of the story.

Cyberpunk 2077's trailer closing Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference was one of the most memorable moments of the entire show. And though much of the gameplay is still under wraps, details are starting to trickle out here and there. Featuring CD PROJEKT RED's trademark storytelling system driven by choice and effect, in Cyberpunk 2077 players navigate the streets of Night City along strongly contrasting paths to arrive at one of a range of story outcomes. It's Cyberpunk 2077, forsaking all others.

We learned a lot of things during our demo session with CD Projekt's long-awaited Cyberpunk 2077 today, including that you'll be able to play the game as either a woman or a man, each with full voice-acted dialogue. The story will be personalized by each choice you make.

Cyberpunk 2077 is set in the fictional Night City, in California, which Eurogamer described as vibrant and full of quests to perform; it has six distinct areas. That includes the game's combat which plays much closer to a first-person shooter than fans were expecting. Rowley confirmed that there will be cars and motorbikes in the game for sure, leaving the door open for more vehicles to be revealed later down the line, but CD Projekt Red doesn't want players to rely on vehicles as they explore the six distinct districts of Night City.
