Snake eyes: Metal Gear Solid 5 now has an FPS mod

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes FPS mod

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is a lesson on how to do a good PC port, enhancing the game with improved textures and fancy lighting, and despite those extra bells and whistles, performance is great, and consistent. 

But what really sets it apart is how Metal Gear Solid can now benefit from the creativity of modders. That’s why we can now play all of Ground Zeroes in first-person mode. It makes things considerably more tense. Take a look at it in action, below. 

You can see how is changes things dramatically in YouTuber BenBlatcher’s video. I’ve got a real taste for playing third person games from a new perspective after fooling around in Grand Theft Auto V recently, so its appearance on Nexus Mods is serendipitous.

Go there and download it yourself.

It’s a work in progress, so there are still a few kinks, like objects vanishing when you get close. But Pao, the modder, has been updating his project, getting rid of the bugs.

Fancy sneaking through the rain in first-person?

Cheers, Kotaku.
