GTA V first-person gameplay trailer released

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.

The new player viewpoint will only be available on the newly released game, appearing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

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.
