According to a recently discovered cached copy of a support post on the Rockstar website, Grand Theft Auto V may be going all Doom on us, introducing a first-person viewpoint for both driving and on-foot sections.
The information was inadvertently published on September 12th, the very same day the remakes’ release dates were revealed, before swiftly being swiped away from Rockstar’s website. We’ve seen it before with some ever-so-slightly-shoddy mods created for GTA IV, but this is the first time Rockstar itself has ever attempted such a feature.
"A brand new first person mode for vehicles that shows the interior of the vehicle, including working speedometers, tachometers, dash lights, and more," the posting reads, going on to say it also features a "brand new first person mode while on foot." Don't get your hopes up just yet because this could well just be a work-in-progress document that doesn’t indicate its inclusion in the final game, but a first-person GTA 5 is certainly a tantalising prospect.
Whatever the case it certainly won’t be the only addition to the Grand Theft Auto 5 remake, which will feature massively overhauled graphics, improved character models, new foliage and wildlife, massively improved draw distances, and denser traffic for a touch more carnage.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is out on November 18th for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, before arriving on January 27th 2015 on PC. Would you like to see a first-person mode implemented into GTA V? Or do you think it would throw too many gameplay elements out of whack?
