Remember how you had to mod The Evil Within just to get rid of its weird aspect ratio? How times change.
If you haven't played The Evil Within 2, here's a mini-spoiler: there's a segment of the game that you play in first person. And given that one part of the game is playable from that view, it makes sense that it would be possible to play the rest of the game in first person too.
Question is, how do you do it? DSO Gaming found a way, writing that PC users could unlock the camera by going into the developer console and toggling a quick setting.
If you're curious as to what the game looks like from this perspective, here's a short video:
To unlock the mode, you'll need to first unlock the developer console. You can right-click on The Evil Within 2 in your Steam library, go to launch options, and then add +com_allowconsole 1 here. (I'm using PUBG as an example here.)
From there, hit the insert key to open the console in-game. Type "pl_FPS 1", and you'll be able to play the entire game in first person.
It's not the way the game was designed to be played, so you might have some issues interacting with the environment and seeing some prompts that you'd ordinarily see without trouble. But having first person also adds a sense of intensity to proceedings, which makes horror games all the more, well, horrifying. And that's part of the fun, ain't it?
