An update has been released for The Evil Within 2.

This first-person mode is located in the General settings (Options General).

The first-person mode is a free update to the game and it should automatically download. The community began clamoring for this feature to be officially extended to the rest of the game, and the development team at Tango Gameworks has listened.

Producer Shinsaku Ohara shared his thoughts about the process and challenges of bringing a first-person perspective to a third-person game. Should it not be one's cup of tea, though, Bethesda has said that players can switch from the game's default third-person camera perspective to first-person at any point while playing by simply flipping a switch in a menu.
