The Evil Within 2 Goes First-Person
Game update gives players the option to swap to first-person.

The latest update to The Evil Within 2 gives players the option to swap between third- and first-person at any time, publisher Bethesda Softworks announced today. The game update adds a quick toggle right in the menu where you can change your perspective on the fly, giving players a bit of a refreshed experience for the mostly-well-received title. Tango Gameworks noted that players are enjoying first-person horror recently in their statement:
A lot of players like playing horror games in first-person, so for those who want to see some of the game’s situations through Sebastian’s eyes, it’s a really neat experience. I think exploring Union in first-person makes the scale feel even bigger than it does when you’re in third-person. Also, being able to see our environments and enemies up close allows players to get an even better look at how much effort went into their designs.
Capcom's Resident Evil 7 recently made waves by transitioning the long-time franchise into a first-person horror experience, so it's interesting to see another game following suit with this update. This news may not come as a surprise for PC players of The Evil Within 2, as it has been known for some time that the functionality was built into the game and could be activated via a hidden console command. Still, it's nice to see a game developer making this a choice and catering to players with differing preferences. Give the update a try and let us know what you think of this new first-person mode.
