Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is more than three years old and there are still mods coming out for it. In September, we informed you about a mod that let gamers play as naked Quiet and today, modder ‘JinMar’ released a mod that lets gamers play as Ocelot from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
JinMar has vertex edited Ocelot’s head to match the one from the original Playstation 2 game, and used some pachislot screenshots and wallpapers to create his textures. In case you weren’t aware of, Metal Gear Solid 3 saw a port to the FOX Engine for pachinkos, and the modder used the upgraded 3D model of Ocelot as a reference in order to create the new textures.
Now as we reported earlier this month, the latest patch for Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain appears to be breaking mod support. As such, I don’t know whether this mod is compatible with the latest game version or it requires the previous one. Since this is a model swap though and not a mod altering the game’s gameplay mechanics, it should be compatible with the latest version.
Those interested can download the mod from here. After installing it with SnakeBite, you can select the Ocelot model by using the IH and selecting Ocelot (5- Appareance Menu > Ocelot).
