It’s something I kind of expected after Rockstar added it as an option in GTA V on PS4, but it’s still nice to get confirmation that Red Dead Redemption 2 will allow you to play in first-person.
This is coming from news site VG247 who recently went hands on with the game for a preview piece, so I trust they know what they’re talking about. Let’s put it this way: they’ve played the game 100% more than I have.
So, if you want to take on the Old West in first-person, you can. Hopefully it’ll be a little more refined this time around as GTA V’s first-person camera wasn’t exactly perfect. We’ll find out for ourselves in about a month when Red Dead Redemption 2 releases on PS4.
As for online, I’d assume you’ll be able to play first-person in Red Dead Online which launches into a public beta a month after Red Dead Redemption 2 has released.
