The mode is activated from game pause menu.
When the mode is active, the game is paused and switches to third person view. You can move and rotate the camera in the area around your character to find the perfect shooting angle. Settings such as time of the day, hiding characters or adjusting field of view allow to set up the best scene. Additionally, you can apply various filters, frames, logos and customise the facial expression of your character!
For Playstation 4 and Xbox One, you can use console build-in functions to save and share screenshots (you can hide the photo mode interface before taking the picture).
