It was rumored before, but this is still sort of surreal to write: the upcoming current-gen remake of Grand Theft Auto V will have a first-person mode.


Yep, if you decide to purchase Rockstar's massive open-world game again, you can experience it all in first-person, from bank robbery to bike stunts to airplane theft. Rockstar tells us that GTA Online will support first-person mode, too.

Rockstar announced the mode today on IGN, where they've got a trailer showing how you'll be able to play as GTA's trio of degenerates from a more personal perspective. Footage shows the player driving, shooting, and flying in first-person, which is hardly new for a video game but definitely new for Grand Theft Auto.


UPDATE: Rockstar's put the trailer up on YouTube, so you can watch it right here:

GTA V comes to PS4 and Xbox One in two weeks, on November 18. The PC version is out in January.
