This section of the Grand Theft Auto V game guide describes how to unlock the first-person perspective in the game. We also describe how does the gameplay change after enabling FPP in GTA 5.
The FPP mode is available only on PS4, XONE, and PC. You can't use it if you play the game on PS3 or X360.
The most developed and awaited change in the GTA 5 was supposed to be a highly detailed view mode from a first person perspective. It moves the entire game in a new level, as it allows to look at the world in an unique way not only during the exploration of the terrain or during the fighting, but also when driving and flying machines.
To start it you have to switch between the camera modes using the touch panel, and of course stay on the right one. After activation, the view will be shown from the character's perspective which will highly influence the surroundings reception, steering and graphic effects. In connection with new camera mode, the creators have introduced a lot of new animations of the ways of moving and of fight, and, what's more, have reconstructed the appearance of cockpits of conducted vehicles.
When using the first-person mode options we can experience many new things but on the other hand - at least at the beginning - we can as well experience difficulties related to the free exploration of the world presented. At this point it is all about managing the aforementioned cars, motorbikes or helicopters. Looking from the hero perspective, the visibility range is significantly reduced, which translates directly into the quality of sense of direction and the opportunity to experience collisions. Well, you can get used to everything, especially when it implies great moments and breathtaking views.
