Resident Evil 2 in first person view

Resident Evil 2 in first person view

You probably are already aware that a certain praymod has made a mod for Resident Evil 2 allowing to play the game in first person view, just like in RE7. If you're interested, the mod can be downloaded right here and is very easy to install. FOV can be tweaked, along with a few other things, and even the effect that darkens the edge of the screen can be deactivated. Here's a video to show you how it looks. Because of the character's animations, playing RE2 in first person mode is a bit similar to what you have in the latest Rockstar games, as there is some definite inertia when you move around. That being said, it's still a very nice addition to an already great game.

I watched the first video of this mod 2 days ago, at the time someone had already finished the game in Hardcore mode using it. This is a great mod indeed, though I prefer to see the characters models and outfits.

There's also a "Fixed Camera Angle" in 3rd-Person mod that's being developed, it's not out yet, but shouldn't take very long. Link to the videos below:

When it's finally finished, the results will be even better. There's also both a Cheat Engine table and a Trainer that allow you to swap character models, so you can play as:

Leon (in Claire's Campaigns), Claire (in Leon's Campaigns), Ada Wong, Sherry Birkin, Annette Birkin, Marvin Branagh, Robert Kendo, Ben Bertolucci, Brian Irons, Hunk, Tofu . Link to a video below.

This is what I love about PC games, the flexibility to make the game experience exactly the way you like it, adding, changing and/or removing things. Since RE2R is an excellent game and very popular, the modding community is already doing all kinds of mods for it. I can't even imagine all the insane stuff people will have created 1 year from now - perhaps a "Top Down" perspective, that would be interesting.

I saw the mod that made the camera fixed like in the old games. Fun mod for the nostalgic.

The first person mod is great, I love it. Now please someone make a VR mod so I can be at the police station myself and kill those bastards.

    KORNdog It's a better story than any of the movies though. Easily. Although that's maybe not saying much. (57 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @b0vril: it's basically a more refined, more fun version of the Arkham games. That's a good reference point for whether you'll like it or not. Liking Spiderman himself obviously helps. (1 Hour ago)

    b0vril Whilst Spiderman looks like a good game, I can't help but feel like I would get bored pretty quick. I'll probably wait till it's way cheap. (9 Hours ago)
