Update turns The Evil Within 2 into a first-person horror game

The mode is added via the game's latest patch, which means it obviously won't cost you a penny. Lastly, the game is also 50% off now on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Store and Steam until February 20.

The Evil Within 2, the arguably superior sequel to Shinji Mikami's polarising survival horror game, is now playable through its entirety in first-person. We wonder how much it'll change the overall atmosphere of the game?

Owners of the PC version of The Evil Within 2 have had unofficial access to the game's first-person mode since October, when players discovered the option was available as a console command.


Tango Gameworks producer Shinsaku Ohara has said, "I think exploring Union in first-person makes the scale feel even bigger than it does when you're in third-person".

Available for the PS4, PC, and Xbox One versions of the game, first-person view can be toggled on/off in the game's menu screen, and can also be utilised in a free trial that's now ongoing.

Bethesda has also noted that the trial version of the game will also have this new option available to players who want to just test out the game before purchasing it.
