Like GTA 5, Red Dead Redemption 2 Is Playable In First-Person

Red Dead Redemption 2, like Grand Theft Auto V before it, will be playable in first- or third-person. The third-person camera is the default setting, but you can choose to play from a first-person perspective if you wish.

As was the case with GTA V, the first-person perspective can help bring you into the experience at a deeper level. Riding a horse in first-person gives you a new sense of perspective and place, while combat can feel more confronting. Some wacky stuff can happen, too. In my session, I was walking through town in first-person when I got run over by a horse who was trotting by. With a third-person camera I would have seen it coming.

GTA V launched in 2013 without a first-person option. It was added to the game when GTA V launched years later on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
