The Evil Within 2 has received a free update today adding a new first-person view for the Tango Gameworks-developed horror sequel.
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 currently ongoing. This lets you play through the opening chapters of the game, and any progress you make will transfer to the full version of The Evil Within 2.
'A lot of players like playing horror games in first-person, so for those who want to see some of the game’s situations through Sebastian’s eyes, it’s a really neat experience,' commented Shinsaku Ohara, producer at Tango Gameworks.
'I think exploring Union in first-person makes the scale feel even bigger than it does when you’re in third-person. Also, being able to see our environments and enemies up close allows players to get an even better look at how much effort went into their designs.'
The Evil Within 2 was released in October 2017, though we thought it wasn't really up to par with the original thanks to some shoddy stealth mechanics and dodgy voice acting. A pity too, as it had some great moments.
