It has been done before in Grand Theft Auto IV, but even the idea of an authentic, Rockstar-created first-person mode in GTA has always seemed a bit farfetched. But according to an apparently cached version of a removed blogpost on the Rockstar website, the mode could be introduced in the PC edition of Grand Theft Auto V.
Adding to features like the video editor, the cached document also makes mention of first-person modes. “A brand new first person mode for vehicles that shows the interior of the vehicle, including working speedometers, tachometers, dash lights, and more,” the post reads, as spotted by a Reddit user. It also lists a “brand new first person mode while on foot.”
If the cached blogpost is real then its probably a work in progress document that was erroneously published. It was published September 12, which is around the time Rockstar announced release dates for both the PC and new-gen console editions of the game. So even if the cache is real, there is a high possibility that the feature will not be implemented in the final game.
But still, it’s just fun to imagine it happening. Grand Theft Auto V releases for PC on January 27.
