PC gamers have been waiting for Rockstar Games to make their juggernaut Grand Theft Auto V available to them for over a year now. They will finally get their wish when the game is released on PC come January 27, 2015, and thankfully the game is good enough to be worth the wait.
GTA V is also set to be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in a couple of weeks on November 18th, and one of the shiny new features being offered on all three of these newest releases is, believe it or not, the option to go into first-person perspective! That’s right, one of the most popular third-person franchises of all time will now be playable as a first-person game, if you so choose.
Rockstar has released a video showing off the first-person gameplay, and you can see it below now.
Exclusive to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions of Grand Theft Auto V, this new mode gives players the chance to explore the world of Los Santos and Blaine County directly through the eyes of their character, revealing all the world’s glorious details in an entirely new way.
Available in both GTAV and GTA Online, we’ve made a host of changes to accommodate this new perspective, including the creation of an optional first person cover system, a new targeting system, a more traditional FPS control scheme, and integrating thousands of new animations into the existing game. It’s also available at the touch of a button so you can easily switch back and forth between perspectives.
Alongside the new First Person mode, Grand Theft Auto V for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC features hundreds of additions and enhancements including 1080p resolution at 30FPS on PS4 and Xbox One (4K compatible on PC).
