‘Cyberpunk 2077’ release date: Will the game’s photo mode be used to complete missions?

“Cyberpunk 2077” is still six months away, but the hype surrounding it isn’t dying down thanks to the continuous marketing of CD Projekt Red. The latest of which came from the game’s official Twitter page where it showed off the game’s photo mode.

While photo mode has become a staple feature for big titles in recent years, “Cyberpunk 2077” is faced with a bit of dilemma. The problem in question is the fact that the game has been built – for the most part – in the first-person view.

With gamers having a proclivity to dress their characters up and snapping a photo of their individual styles, it’s unclear how “Cyberpunk 2077” will address this aspect. Could the game offer a third-person view while in photo mode? Or do players need to stand in front of a tall mirror to take pictures of their take on V? That’s still anyone’s guess for now.

Cyberpunk 2077’s photo mode and its possibilities

TechRadar also speculates if photo mode will function beyond what it’s traditionally used for. For instance, there could be quests in “Cyberpunk 2077,” where V needs to snap photos of a massive crime being committed and presenting it to someone who may be interested in the information. After all, the game’s theme is bleak and dystopian.

The developers could have missions where players will have to blackmail someone and use the evidence as leverage to progress in “Cyberpunk 2077.” There can even be big quests where V hacks the system of Night City and plaster the sensitive photo on the myriads of screens and billboards littered across several districts. The possibility is endless and an entertaining idea to be sure. It’s just that we don’t exactly know if photo mode will indeed be used other than simply taking pictures.

Cyberpunk 2077 to come out in April 2020

With “Cyberpunk 2077,” revealing that players can outfit V with several enhancements including an upgraded eye scanner that can zoom-in at an incredible rate, the photo mode being used for espionage and other nefarious means could be an interesting feature indeed. But again, unless CD Projekt Red confirms anything, this is merely a pipe dream for now. As for the game’s release date, the developers slated it to drop on April 16, 2020.
