Grand Theft Auto V PC First-Person Confirmed

Rockstar Games announces new details about the upcoming current-generation release of Grand Theft Auto V, confirming recent indications this will include enhanced first-person support. Here's a video and here are the details that Rockstar apparently learned from IGN:
With exactly two weeks to go until launch, IGN spent some time with the new version of Grand Theft Auto V, including the all-new First Person Mode. Exclusive to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions of Grand Theft Auto V, this new mode gives players the chance to explore the world of Los Santos and Blaine County directly through the eyes of their character, revealing all the world's glorious details in an entirely new way. For more details about First Person Mode, check out the first of IGN's 3 exclusive feature stories this week. Here's a sampling:

"There’s so much new about this version Grand Theft Auto V, but it’s obvious Rockstar was keen to deliver something above and beyond a technical upgrade – it’s given players an entirely new way of playing the game. From shooters to action games, we’re all used to adopting the first-person, but the way in which this new perspective transforms the GTA 5 experience can’t be understated; it fundamentally alters how you inhabit and interact with this world. It rewrites the experience."

Read the full story here: http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/11/04/grand-theft-auto-v-a-new-perspective

Available in both GTAV and GTA Online, we've made a host of changes to accommodate this new perspective, including the creation of an optional first person cover system, a new targeting system, a more traditional FPS control scheme, and integrating thousands of new animations into the existing game. It's also available at the touch of a button so you can easily switch back and forth between perspectives.

Alongside the new First Person mode, Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC features hundreds of additions and enhancements including 1080p resolution at 30FPS on PS4 and Xbox One (4K compatible on PC).

Seriously, the thing was not fun, haha. I had no clue where the back was so changing lanes in LA gridlock was no bueno, I had no idea where cops were so I was never really opening up the engine, and it was just an enormous blind spot. Great car for a HS kid, less great a car for someone in his 30s.

I drove a ZL1 not too long ago, and while the performance and handling were fun, it was definitely hard to see out of, and the inside was absolute trash.

Though apparently GM has learned and the 2015 models will have much improved interiors. Not sure how you fix the vision problem without aggressively redesigning the car, however.

I'll take the Mustang.

I'm so sick of people spreading this ridiculous myth. Learn to fucking adjust your mirrors correctly, and there is zero blind spot. Christ.

Mustangs are not fun to drive. May as well weld the front axles straight ahead because that's all they're good at. XD

The new graphics look pretty amazing.

They'd treat the subject matter more maturely; they'd stop posing the game's female characters in bikinis and tanktops with their ass up in the air in advertisements, they'd make serious commercials about them rather than the "PEW PEW PEW LOOKIT ALL THE PEW!!!!" or the "THIS IS THE NEW SHIT!" crap that we get; they'd not drown 95% of the commercials in trap/dubstep, etc etc etc.

Sometimes my wife and I will be watching some TV and an advertisement for a game I'm currently playing will come on, and 9 out of 10 times it makes me embarrassed that I like the game so much, just because of how fucking juvenile the advertisement is.

Couple of new things in today's IGN coverage. Neon have been added to cars and the railgun is a vehicle killer. It's going to be the unfriendly skies as peds now have the ability to easily shoot jets and helicopters out of the sky. As I understand it the railgun has the speed of a sniper bullet with the punch of an RPG.

Thanks!

I guess it's maybe to be expected, since there never seem to be people in marketing over the age of 24. (or the mentality of 14.)

I was going to say, that's how they sell cars and beer, too, which definitely aren't aimed at a 14 year old demographic. And tons of other stuff.

I just spent the past 24 hours in LA. In a rented Camaro (which is one giant blind spot.) I picked a friend up at her place in broad beach and just cruised up and down Malibu this afternoon. Thanks to gtav it was startlingly familiar. Crazy how the game does that.

It's been a long time since I was in LA (2000, IIRC, the Lakers were killing everyone at the time), but Malibu and Santa Monica pier in game looked quite like I remembered them.

What kind of Camaro did you get? Base model, or a Z/28?

That's a good point.

Yeah, I have a bias against 8-bit games, but when a game is fun enough I completely forget about my bias. For example, FTL, Defender Quest, and Rogue Legacy.

Wow you guys, build a bridge and get over it. I have it on the console along with other console only games, it is worth it. A gamer buys games and systems that we enjoy. Hell, unless you are very young, we all had consoles at one point or another - if you didn't, go get a NES, GameCube, SuperNes, and Genesis, as you are missing some of the best gaming of all time.
Never owned a console, and probably never will. Kinds of games I liked to play in the past weren't on console (RTS, RPG, FPS) and these days most console games come to PC and I've got more games than I can play in my lifetime regardless.

I was trying to make light fun of the fact that consoles were marketed for children and that most of us started gaming on consoles, when we were obviously still kids.

Gaming in general was marketed toward children 20-30 years ago. Everything has grown up.
