A couple of days ago, we shared with you some videos showcasing what Resident Evil 2 Remake could have looked like with fixed camera angles. While such a mod has not been released yet, I’m happy to report that a beta version of a first-person mod is currently available for download.
Created by modder Praydog (who was inspired by and used code from Kanan), this mod will allow you to play Resident Evil 2 Remake with a first-person camera viewpoint. Do note that this mod is currently in beta version and there is some head bobbing effects that could annoy some players.
It’s a pretty cool proof of concept mod that we are pretty sure that some Resident Evil 2 Remake fans will enjoy. Ironically, Capcom experimented with a first-person mode for Resident Evil 2 Remake before deciding to use a third-person perspective so I guess this mod restores Capcom’s initial idea.
To be honest, a proper and official first-person perspective would be one of the coolest free DLCs, so here is hoping that Capcom will consider releasing such a thing.
But anyway, those interested can download the mod from here and below you can find some videos showcasing this first-person mode in action.
Have fun everyone!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
