Rockstar Games has pushed out the first official footage of the new first-person mode for the next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto V.
With the inclusion of the first-person play comes a raft of added features and changes to accommodate the new perspective.
There’s an entirely new targeting system, an FPS control scheme more akin to traditional shooter titles, and a smorgasbord of new animations that Rockstar says reaches into the thousands.
Grand Theft Auto has typically operated a third-person perspective for its games since GTA 3, the first truly 3D title.
Rockstar has added the first-person viewpoint in hopes of making life a little easier for those who rely heavily on weaponised gameplay – GTA pacifists need not apply.
First-person is the go-to perspective for most shooters, so it’s not too surprising that Rockstar would opt to include it. It’s worth noting that third-person play will still be available.
Rockstar also points out that the new view mode will be available in both the core game and in GTA Online.
GTA V is set to release for Xbox One and PS4 on November 18, while PC will be snagging the revamped title slightly later on January 27 next year.
Next-gen console owners will see the game running at 1080p resolution with a 30fps framerate, while steadfast PC loyalists can enjoy 4K compatibility – should your rig allow it.
