You can play Red Dead Redemption 2 entirely in first-person

Red Dead Redemption is one of the most impressive virtual worlds we’ve seen, and you’ll be able to experience it up close.

There are a range of camera options you can switch between at any time, moving the camera closer to Arthur Morgan in third-person, or even going full first-person.

You can play the entire game in first-person if you want, just like with the remastered edition of GTA V. In Red Dead Redemption 2, this new viewpoint allows you to really appreciate the detailed gun loading animations and the small details in the environments.

If you are travelling by horseback, you can also initiate a cinematic camera and hold X to travel to your destination automatically, for when you just want to take in the scenery.

It’s all about options, which sums up our time with the game. You can read our Red Dead Redemption 2 preview for our initial impressions.
