Have you ever wanted to play Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes in first person? Yes? Then you’re in luck! Thanks to a new mod, PC gamers can play the game from Snake’s own perspective.

“It’s brilliant,” writes YouTuber BenBlatcher. “Not being able to see what’s round corners makes things much more tense, and you’ve gotta be really careful and try and get a good view on things beforehand. You’ve got to rely on your senses a lot more, and it’s obvious [in his video that] I wasn’t.”

The mod still has some work to be done however, as several bugs including vanishing scenery/items, animation issues, and a semi-disappearing Snake plague the mod.

“You can’t see character models if you’re right next to them,” says Blatcher, “as with the third person camera, things disappear when you get too close. Of course it makes picking up items a little awkward, but altogether it’s nowhere near enough to turn me off of the mod.”

 If you’re interested in checking out the mod, bugs aside, you can experience Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes in first person mode by downloading Pao’s “FPS mod” right here.

  • Uh oh now I might want to play it. Well not for the price, but all prices come down especially when the full game is released.

      I always wait until the big steam sales to buy the majority of my PC games, I’ll probably pick it up now in the next one!
