As shown in the videos above, Rockstar are even implementing a first person mode similar to that of Grand theft Auto 5. This furthers the immersion of the game and will really make gamers feel like a Train robbing, shop burgling and gunslinging outlaw.
As Arthur Morgan, a gang member during the decline of the Wild West era, you can rob trains, complete bounties, hunt wildlife, fish, play poker and experience the compelling story of Arthur Morgan and the Van Der Linde Gang.
