Only for the brave.
A hidden console command lets players turn The Evil Within 2 into a first-person survival horror.
As reported by DSOGaming, the modification switches the camera from behind the shoulder of Sebastian Castellanos to within his tormented grey matter.
The line of code necessary for the change seems to have been left in the game by developers Tango Gameworks.
Due to the fact that there is a first-person section already in The Evil Within 2, it is unclear whether this is an Easter egg for savvy fans or an experimental tool used by the development team.
If you want to experience The Evil Within 2 from the perspective of Resident Evil 7, follow the short guide below.
- In your Steam library, right click on The Evil Within 2 and select ‘properties’ and ‘launch options’
- Type in the vacant box ‘+com_allowconsole 1’
- Launch The Evil Within 2 and whilst in-game, hit the Insert button on your keyboard
- Type ‘pl_FPS 1’ in the console, which should activate the first-person mode.
