If you’re playing The Evil Within 2 on PC you can access a hidden first-person mode.

Although The Evil Within 2 was clearly designed as a third-person adventure, you can get that Resident Evil 7 vibe by going fully first-person.

Check out eight minutes of the game in first-person in the video below.

To flip The Evil Within 2 into first-person mode on PC you will need enable the in-game console.

You do this by creating a shortcut and adding “+com_allowconsole 1”. Then start the game from the shortcut and bring up the console while in-game by pressing the insert key. Next type “pl_FPS 1” which will switch the game to a first-person mode.

While you’re in the console, you can also enable cheat mode by typing the command “idStudio”.
