CD Projekt Red has described the game as an 'open-world, FPS RPG'. Rowley made sure to reiterate that Cyberpunk 2077 is "first and foremost a narrative-driven roleplaying game", with a full melee system to complement first-person shooting combat.

As V, you'll be immersed in "a world of cyberenhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners and corporate life-hackers", and your journey will involve you becoming an urban legend within Night City and beyond. Cyberpunk 2077 doesn't impose any player roles and allows for crafting and the free mixing of abilities across all available classes. At the start of the game you're not picking any of those classes.

Interactive Dialogue Control - You're a participant, an agent, not an observer. The choice is always yours.

As in The Witcher games, choice and effect will have a vital role to play, and as you make your way through the streets of Night City, decisions will have an impact through the entire game and its world.
You are V, a cyberpunk.
While any information is good news, the lack of gameplay has left some players feeling frustrated that CD Projekt Red isn't being upfront with their information.
