Fans of the classic Resident Evil games, here is something special for you today. YouTube’s ‘Enveloping Sounds’ has shared two videos, showcasing what Resident Evil 7 could have looked like with fixed cameras.
In order to achieve this, Enveloping Sounds combined a free camera script with another that adds a head to Ethan Withers. The free camera tool is slightly buried inside this third-person script that players can download.
From the looks of it, this is – at least for now – a proof of concept project and nothing more. In these videos, Enveloping Sounds showed Ethan exploring the Baker’s mansion. Ethan can interact with all objects, open doors, draw his weapons and reload. Unfortunately, though, there isn’t any combat in either of the videos.
We should also note that this project is not yet available for download as a mod. And, at this point, we don’t know whether Enveloping Sounds plans to release a proper “Fixed Cameras” mod for the game.
Still, these videos show how close to the original/classic games Resident Evil 7 actually can get, all by simply changing its camera viewpoint.
