A Dark Souls 3 fan creates an ambitious mod for the game that completely transforms it into a first-person perspective.
By software Dark Souls Games are third-person action-adventure RPGs through and through, where players can sometimes switch to first-person mode when aiming certain weapons.

According to Dasaav, theirs Dark Souls 3 First person mod will be a “full conversion” while previous mods used clever placement to make the existing third person camera look like it’s providing a first person point of view. “In my mod, I plan to both attach the camera to the actual head of the player, so that it moves with the head, and to have the player always face towards the camera, with the movement being relative to it, ie Strafing, don’t turn around and go forward,” Dasaav explained. Dasaav compared the movement in hers Dark Souls 3 ego mod too Skyrimand while the video provided shows the mod in its earliest stages of development, it’s reminiscent of Bethesda’s open-world epic.

There are those who struggle to beat the game and achieve one Dark Souls 3‘s ends if you play the game as it was intended.
Dasaav made it clear that this is just a rough example of the mod in action and that there will be improvements with future updates. There are many great ones Dark Souls 3 Mods already exist and it will be interesting to see how this develops once work on it is complete.
