Bethesda Studios along with Tango Gameworks recently announced The Evil Within 2, the successor to their widely acclaimed game – The Evil Within. While the game in itself has a very high fear-quotient which offers a gripping experience, to some it might seem dull at times. Especially for someone who’s coming off from the Resident Evil 7, the first-person mode seems to be a must in game of this genre. Well, apparently the team behind Evil Within 2 did leave a certain code behind, that allows the user to switch to the first-person view. And having personally tried it, I can assure you that it works really well. So, if you’re also someone who’d love to try this new feature out, read on, as we show you how to enable first-person mode in The Evil Within 2:
