The Sims 4: How to Go First-Person


Since its launch in 2014, The Sims 4 had only allowed fans to look at their Sims and the landscape from a third-person perspective. However, in a patch update that came out in November 2018, fans were finally able to see how their Sims live their lives through their eyes when a first-person camera was released.

If you leave your Sim to their own devices, the camera will follow their gaze and you can see what the Sims are doing in a more personal way. The first-person view will even work with pets, so if you want to live your life as a dog, now is the time to shine in The Sims 4.

How to get into first person in Sims 4?

On a PC, you simply have to press Shift and Tab at the same time to enter first person. As a third person, the mouse is used to control the Sim and their actions. Use the left click button to interact with the world around you.

The walls and doors have proven to be a bit tricky in the first person view, but using the right-click button allows the Sim to traverse rooms with ease. The same action is used to get out of first person view.

On PS4 and Xbox One, it is the same action to enter first person mode. Just press the right stick. To move the Sim, use the right stick. The selection of items or options is the same as in the third person view.

With the problem of reaching other rooms, direct the Sims gaze to the desired door / room and click the O button on PS4 and the B button on Xbox One.

For some people, motion sickness can be a real killer when played in first person and can make the experience unpleasant. The Sims 4 has incorporated a field of view that can help fight it.

On PC, scrolling the mouse wheel allows the player to increase the field of view and using the right stick helps to adjust the view for both PS4 and Xbox One.

Some things just don’t look good in the first person

Some players prefer the immersive aspect of a game and put themselves in the shoes of its characters. It’s great to be able to see the world of the Sims from their point of view, but don’t confuse the world of the Sims with the real world.

While it’s great to be able to see the Sims ‘world through the Sims’ eyes, some of the actions your Sim can take don’t look as good in a first-person view. If you expect to get a close and personal look at WooHoo, you will be wrong.

He comes across a buggy, with the Sims’ partner with his eyes closed and then some lovely fluttering hearts. I guess WooHoo shouldn’t look that way.

If it wasn’t Woohoo that players were rushing to experience in the first person view, then it was death. The downside to being in first person is that you won’t be able to see the reaper, which has always been a huge part of death in The Sims 4.
