First-Person Play in ESPN NFL Football?
Visual Concepts released a bit of rather interesting information regarding their upcoming pigskin release, ESPN NFL Football. What's so interesting? Well, it seems that a first-person mode will be available in the game. In this mode, the camera switches an "inside the helmet" view and the sound effects change from the all-encompassing noises on the field to magnifying certain effects, such as the footsteps of blitzing linebackers and the thuds of falling offensive linemen.
How this new feature will execute in real time and how well the game plays in this mode are still yet to be determined, but it's certainly a different twist and one we'll be sure to look out for when the game ships in early September.
