Rockstar Games’ open world, action-adventure, Grand Theft Auto V gets a first-person mode exclusive for PlayStation 4, Xbox One & PC.
The trailer gives us a glimpse at the brand new first-person mode in 1080p/60fps, get it after the jump:
The first-person 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.”
“We’ve always been in interested in [a first-person mode], but it’s never really been an option for us,” animation director Rob Nelson told IGN.
I don’t think we could’ve put it in the [last-gen version] because we were too busy making the game. We were too busy working on our third-person controls and the missions.
I just think it’s a different way of experiencing the world. It’s a different perspective. You’re eye-level, down with the people on the street, and as you walk past them, you see them sort of look at you out of the corner of their eye.
All of this stuff existed in the game before – lots of little details.”
The developers have made 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.”
Grand Theft Auto V runs on 1080p at 30FPS on PS4 and Xbox One, 4K support for PC. It will launch on November 18, 2014 for PS4 and Xbox one. The PC version arrives several months later on January 27, 2015.
