The Evil Within 2 will get an additional mode added to the game and it will give players the option to play in the standard third-person or the new first-person.
The idea was originally played around with during the game’s development as a side project. But now added to the game since seeing how many people enjoying horror games in first person and after some players found a way to activate it outside of the game’s barriers they said “what the heck. Let’s put it in as a bonus for all platforms.”
The game was intended for third person originally so some scenes will have the camera bounce back and forth. Players will be able to access first person mode in the game’s menu.
