Shown off in our hands-on with the game, first-person mode can be turned on and off at any time (on the PS4, this is done by clicking the trackpad to cycle through the camera modes until you get to first-person), and applies to the entire game, barring cutscenes.

Based on GTA Online, it seems likely you’ll also be able to play Red Dead Online – the game’s multiplayer mode – in first-person.
