The Evil Within 2 Gets First-Person Mode
The Evil Within 2 will now let you play through the entire game in first-person, thanks to a new update available right now. The first-person option is in addition to the previous third-person mode, and it’s accessible at any time via the in-game menu on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Producer Shinsaku Ohara discussed the process of turning The Evil Within 2 into a first-person game:
“We experimented a bit with first-person in the original game, but it was more of an afterthought and a little bit of playing around on our side, since we designed the game in third-person. Some savvy users figured out a way to activate this mode outside of its intended area, and the reaction to it was pretty positive, so we said, ‘What the heck. Let’s put it in as a bonus for all platforms.’ 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.
The Evil Within 2 wasn’t designed as a first-person game, so it was pretty difficult. We like to think of it as a “high-level hack” so we don’t want people to compare this with Doom or anything like that. There were some scenes that just didn’t work, so it jumps back and forth a bit to third-person. But we made sure the game’s an enjoyable experience and hopefully people will enjoy playing in this mode.”
The Evil Within 2 can now be played in first-person on PC, Xbox One, and PS4, following a free update.

Whether you’re about to replay the game for kicks, attempting the brutal “Classic mode” or playing the game for the first time, exploring Union in first-person makes the world feel even bigger, even more terrifying, and offers players a closer look than ever before at the artfully designed environments and monsters of The Evil Within 2.
