The new NEXT 1.5 update for No Man’s Sky came with a new feature which players have been really expectant of. Now, players can switch between first person and third person view while walking or flying.
Players on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC can all use this features as soon as they start playing for the first time. One great thing about the implementation of the third person is that you can now select different options whether you are playing the game while in a vehicle or on foot.
For example, you can choose to play in third person view while playing on foot and switch instantly to the first person as soon as you enter a vehicle.
In the guide below, we will show you how to switch between first person and third person view in No Man’s Sky.
