In a new update, first-person mode has been added to The Evil Within 2, giving you the chance to get right up close to the horror.
Tango Gameworks producer Shinsaku Ohara said in a 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.”
PC players have been able to play the game that way since October when it was found out that the option was available in the form of a console command.
With Resident Evil 7 proving that a series can keep its identity and shift its perspective, it isn’t surprising that Tango Gameworks have added it in.
With horror, it’s as much about what you can’t see as what you can, and first person keeps you on edge for fear of what’s just outside the corners of your vision.
The free trial of The Evil Within 2 will also have the mode included.
