In September 2021, we shared a mod that allowed you to play The Witcher 3 in first-person mode. Created by ExtremeDotneting, the first versions of this mod had some issues when entering combat and fighting enemies. However, that wasn’t the only FP mod for The Witcher 3. Modder ‘crthdr’ has been also working on a similar first-person mod, and released last week a new version of it.
This new first-person mod for The Witcher 3 supports exploration, combat, horse riding, and sailing. As such, PC gamers can now fully immerse themselves into the world of CD Projekt RED’s RPG.
Do note, though, that there are some minor bugs when using this first-person mod. For instance, and in rare cases, it is very hard or impossible to interact with some objects in FP. Thankfully, you can briefly switch to third-person mode in order to interact with them.
It’s also worth noting that this mod brings some changes to the combat mechanics. For instance, it changes knockdown to stagger. It also changes roll in combat to jump. According to the modder, these changes should make your overall experience better when playing the game in this first-person mode.
You can download the mod from here. Below you can also find two videos that showcase it in action.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
