An update to the horror game The Evil Within 2 has now given players the option to replay the whole game from a first person perspective. The update went live today for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
Bethesda and Tango Gameworks has announced that the gamers can switch from the default third person perspective to the first at any point by clicking a button in the menu. The new mode will likely cause gamers quite the fright, as it is already heart pounding – at least for myself – in the third person perspective.
Tango Gameworks producer Shinsaku Ohara had this to say about the upcoming change: “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.”
To those who haven’t played the game yet, it’s worth noting that the games free trial version also includes this new first person mode. Though gamer beware, your in for a scare.
