Become Geralt With This 'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt' First-Person Mod
Although released over a year ago, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt still remains one of the most-played video games, thanks to two enormous pieces of DLC.
The final piece of DLC, Blood and Wine, served as the end of Geralt's story, leaving many gamers left with only feelings of sad nostalgia once the game was complete. It's the final piece of content ever for The Witcher franchise of games, meaning that life as Geralt — at least, as gamers know it — is officially over.
"For the last time become professional monster slayer Geralt of Rivia and explore Toussaint, a remote land untouched by war, where you will unravel the horrifying secret behind a beast terrorizing the kingdom," reads the official description for the DLC. "Blood and Wine is a 30-plus hour adventure full of dark deeds, unexpected twists, romance and deceit."
For those that don't want to see an end to Geralt's journey, though, there is a new way to relive it: through Geralt's eyes. Modder SkacikPL created a mod that changes the camera perspective during the game, so that players can tackle it in first-person.
The mod isn't complete and still needs some work, but SkacikPL released several videos about its progress. The latest video shows that the camera moves realistically with Geralt, making the game's camera see everything from Geralt's perspective.
Some things that SkacikPL wants to continue working on includes making the mod work better in combat (so far, it goes back to third-person as soon as Geralt goes for his sword). For those who still want to try it out, though, the mod is available for download here. SkacikPL plans on updating players on the mod's progress on the official CD Projekt Red forums.
This mod is only available to PC players of the game, so for those on consoles, you can still revisit Geralt's world and change things up by making some different choices to get a different game experience. It's hard to say goodbye, so why not play it again and again?
There is also Gwent to look forward to: CD Projekt Red took the card game from The Witcher 3 and turned it into its own video game. Beta signs ups are now open, with the beta officially beginning in September.
"If you enjoyed Gwent in The Witcher 3, I think I don't have to convince you to sign-up for the beta. If you hadn't [sic] tried it yet, there's no better time," CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwiński said in a press release. "Go register, play the beta for free starting from September and share your feedback with us."
