GTA 5 Going First-Person On PS4
If you think that going first-person is a way of getting more immersed in a game’s world, then you’ll be delighted to hear that GTA 5 is getting a first-person mode on PS4.
“We’ve always been in interested in it, but it’s never really been an option for us,” Rockstar’s Rob Nelson told IGN. “I don’t think we could’ve put it in the [last-gen version] because we were too busy making the game. We were too busy working on our third-person controls and the missions.”
“We were out of memory on the old consoles for animations,” he continued. “We were constantly fighting about what we could have and what we could still push in, and what other areas you could steal memory back from – audio, art, maps – for animation. So we could’ve added all the atoms to make a first-person mode to the level we wanted. We weren’t sure the world would have held up the way we would’ve wanted it to.”
PC modders have had previous GTA games working in first-person, but this is the first time Rockstar has implemented their own first-person mode in a GTA game.
