Tango Gameworks’ recent horror title, The Evil Within 2, just got a really cool update. Anyone who has played the game knows that there’s a very small section where the perspective shifts from third-person to first-person. Inspired by mods, the developers have released a new update allowing players to enjoy The Evil Within 2 fully in first-person mode.
Check out the up-close and personal trailer for the new mode:
Changing the perspective can help make the game even more terrifying, if that’s what you’d like. Once you’ve downloaded the update, you can swap between third and first-person with an option in the general settings.
Producer Shinsaku Ohara, had this to say about implementing this new mode:
We experimented a bit with first-person in the full game, but it was more of an afterthought and a little bit of playing around on our side, since we designed the game in third-person.
Some savvy users figured out a way to activate this mode outside of its intended area, and the reaction to it was pretty positive, so we said, “What the heck. Let’s put it in as a bonus for all platforms.” 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.
It’s pretty awesome that the developers have included this as option. Whether you’re a first-timer or looking to replay The Evil Within 2, you now have even more ways to go through Union.
