Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on December 10. The game is launching on current-gen consoles, next-gen consoles, and PC.
Since its announcement, the game has been delayed several times. Most recently, CD Projekt Red, the game’s developer, delayed announcing DLC plans until after the game releases.
Despite this, Cyberpunk 2077 is already beating out pre-order sales of The Witcher 3 , CD Projekt Red's previous open-world game.
Cyberpunk 2077 's developer, CD Projekt Red, released a trailer today showing off the game’s photo mode.
The trailer highlights different set pieces while photo mode is active, and different options within the mode, including camera, depth of field, pose, effect, and stickers, are shown off.

WHAT THIS MEANS
This trailer indicates that Cyberpunk 2077 has a robust photo mode. Perhaps the most unique function within the mode itself is the ability to pose your character. In other games, players often have to manually maneuver their character to a certain position to line them up for a good shot in photo mode. In Cyberpunk 2077 , however, players can rotate their character, change their expression, or change their pose for each snapshot.
Photo mode has become a staple in most AAA games recently. Ghost of Tsushima , for example, included a very in-depth photo mode that allowed players to tweak several options. Cyberpunk 2077 is following this trend with its own photo mode.
For developers, photo mode can essentially serve as a form of community marketing. Players taking to social media with their in-game photos can be reposted by the developers. Insomniac Games has been reposting photos of Spider-Man: Miles Morales that were captured by fans. It’s likely that CD Projekt Red will follow suit given how active the studio is on social media.
