Today, Bethesda and Tango Gameworks have put out an update for The Evil Within 2 that lets players switch the game to an entirely first-person perspective. The update is available now for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.
In a press release, Bethesda said that players can switch from third-person to first-person at any point in the game by choosing the perspective option in the menu. Previously only the third-person perspective was available.
"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," said Tango Gameworks producer Shinsaku Ohara in a press release. "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."
Previously, PC players discovered a workaround that would let players play the game in first-person, but the new update makes the first-person mode accessible to everyone, and quite easily at that. The first-person option is also available in The Evil Within 2's free trial.
It looks like first-person might be the new hotness in horror games as now games like Resident Evil and the cancelled Silent Hills demo, P.T. all sported the perspective.
