When "Grand Theft Auto V" arrives on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this November, it could be sporting a brand new first-person mode, if cached documents are to be believed.

What appears to be a draft post published early to the support site of "Grand Theft Auto V," Rockstar Games highlights a number of new features that would be exclusive to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC editions of the blockbuster.

Flagged up by a member of GTA Forums and, following deletion, for a while available via Google's cache as proof, the post announces "a brand new first person mode" for both vehicles and pedestrians, building on various fan-made mods created for the PC version of "Grand Theft Auto IV."

While the "Grand Theft Auto" series has always taken place from a third-person perspective, such developments build on fan-made mods created for the PC version of "Grand Theft Auto IV," making sense of detailed vehicle interiors seen in trailers for the overhauled version of "GTA V"; the feature was integrated into May 2014 Ubisoft release "Watch Dogs."

And as a red text bullet point on the list of "GTA V" reissue improvements, presumably awaiting ratification, is "Animals in GTA Online?"

That could mean that multiplayer pursuits could extend to hunting parties as one player adopts the persona of a deer and others track it down in the wilds surrounding the city of Los Santos.
