Grand Theft Auto V for Next-Gen Receives a First Person Mode



If you thought Grand Theft Auto V for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One was just a graphical rehash of what was already released, think again.

As revealed by IGN today, Rockstar has developed a full first person mode for Grand Theft Auto V and it looks absolutely stunning. Below you can watch the first trailer for the mode provided by IGN.

Rockstar had to essentially rebuild all their animations for the first person mode as animation director Rob Nelson explains, “You have to change pretty much everything. I mean, if you want to do it right. We have a very solid third-person animation system, but you don’t just put the camera down there and expect to see the guns, aim, and shoot. All those animations are new when you switch to first-person, because it all has to be animated to the camera, to make it feel like a proper first-person experience that I think people would expect. All the timings have to be re-evaluated.”

The IGN preview of the first person mode for GTA V goes into a lot more detail about how it works and all the changes Rockstar had to make to the game to implement it properly. You can read that article by following the link.

Pokémon Developer Game Freak Emphasizes Original Game Creation




Game Freak, best known for the Pokémon franchise, is starting to emphasize and prioritize original game creation.

In an interview with Video Game Chronicle, Masayuki Onoue, a director at Game Freak, says that the company has launched Gear Project, an initiative in which developers pitch ideas during slower periods between big releases to create more original games other than just Pokémon.

Onoue also spoke about Production Team 1 and Team 2 at Game Freak, the first prioritizing Gear Project for the company as a whole and the second focusing on Pokemon. He noted that Gear Project allows the developers to gain more experience working on different platforms such as PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, as well as transferring new skills and techniques they learned back to the Pokémon team.

Some of the games that Game Freak has released so far through Gear Project are HarmoKnight, Pocket Card Jockey, Tembo the Badass Elephant, and Giga Wrecker. Game Freak is also developing Town, an RPG game that was shown off in a Nintendo Direct back in September 2018 and is due out this year.

Additionally, Game Freak is working on Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, the latest entries in Nintendo’s flagship franchise. Both of those are set to release later this year.
