From the Stevivor review:Where did you read that?
It would be an understatement to say that the selection has grown since the last reveal. The unlock screen is practically unrecognisable now. The 5 aforementioned main attributes now split off into 12 sub-specialisations. And each of these specialisations house a whopping 20 perks each (so 240 perks total). Obviously I didn’t have time to drool over every single one, so I scrolled down the list to jot down the most expensive ones. The crème de la chrome.
Yeah that review above is where the 240 number comes from. There was another one that listed out perk numbers for 4-5 specific skills. I'll find it when I get home and am not on my phone.I think it was this... There are so many reviews now.
And there’s a lot of perks. For the Cool attribute, you’ve got a Stealth Page and a Cold Blood page. There’s 26 different Stealth perks and 19 Cool Blood perks to choose from, and most of those have multiple levels.
The same goes for other attributes. Technical Ability — or TECH — has Crafting (19 perks) and Engineering (22). Reflexes has separate branches for each of the main weapons: Blades (23), Rifles (20) and Handguns (19).
I was playing an assassin-type, so I focused on the Cool skills. All the choices there were pretty good: Improving critical chance by 15 percent; a global 15 percent/25 percent damage bump to human and mechanical enemies; 30 percent faster move speed while sneaking; unlocking aerial takedowns; unlocking the ability to throw knives; or just getting more movement speed generally after a takedown.
And that’s just the Stealth perk line. Want to be a better hacker instead? Then you can unlock the ability to breakdown turrets. Increase your Breach Protocol buffer. Get better hacking programs. Or maybe you just want faster aim time. Better headshot damage with handguns. Health regen during combat. Double the carrying capacity.
All of this is available with your very first perk point. You can’t have it all, of course. But you can work out pretty quickly the amount of possible permutations.

As listed in the post you just quoted, perspective is discussed in datafortress. https://forums.cdprojektred.com/index.php?threads/everything-weve-heard-so-far-about-cyberpunk-2077.11008534/#post-11590642All thats nice but what about 3rd person
FIRST PERSON PERSPECTIVE
Cyberpunk 2077 will be mostly in first person perspective, with TPP in optionally while driving. For those concerned about seeing your customized V, you’ll also be able to see the player character in the inventory, in mirrors, very occasionally in cutscenes, and possibly in a planned photo mode. CDPR choose the first-person point of view for a few reasons. First, in the thick of action gameplay, it allows players to see things happening up close as the character, so that V can really interact with things in a visceral manner. Also, there were narrative-based considerations to make. The FPP camera helps to place the player into the interactive dialogue, the story and the environments that CDPR are creating. To really experience that verticality of Night City, you need a first-person perspective. Finally, the HUD is incorporated into the FPP so that V is seeing everything the player sees.
CDPR are aware that not everyone likes FPP. However they are firm in that decision. Having said that, they are very aware that there are a some people who can’t play first-person for a variety of reasons. CDPR is looking into offering difficulty options and sensibility options to hopefully manage to turn Cyberpunk 2077 in the first first-person game that some of those people will like, or that some will be able to play. For example, FOV will be adjustable for PC (no official word yet on consoles). There will also be options to disable bobble-head mode and motion blur on V's vision.
Maybe "becoming more skilled" won't be equal being more accurate but just doing more damages, you know.It seems my prayers have been answered by CDPR.
I was very concerned that CP2077 combat was your typical FPS but it seems that now your character starts out rather unskilled with a weapon but the more you use it the better you become.
Honest-to-god RPG mechanics!
That's because weapons sway isn't exactly accuracy to me.
Accuracy = Ability to hit what's under your crossair.
Not quite. This video explains it well:I think weapon sway is involved in accuracy. But they also talked about hit spread for accuracy this year.
