If you haven't played The Evil Within 2 yet, the game is getting a free update that adds first-person mode. Now players can immerse themselves in the survival horror game even more than the third-person perspective which originally shipped with the game. Changing to first-person is as simple as toggling a switch in the menu. Players will be able to change perspective at any point, so they can experience the game however they like.
“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. “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.”
Players who haven’t had a chance to check out the game and want to try it out can download The Evil Within 2 Free Trial and play through the opening chapters of the game including the new first-person mode. All save data will carry over if you choose to upgrade to the full game. In case you missed it, give our The Evil Within 2 Review a look for Chris Jarrard's take on the game.
