Witcher 3 mods have added a first-person camera in the past, but the latest version of the concept creates truly intense and immersive combat.
An impressively immersive mod for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt puts an entirely new perspective on tracking, fighting and slaying monsters. The final entry in CD Project Red’s beloved role-play series lets players explore a massive open world and bring Geralt’s journey to a definitive ending. Some fan creations like a Witcher 3 Henry Cavill gear mod add amusing new items and weapons to the adventure, while other mods completely overhaul the monster hunting experience.
Upon release in 2015, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was immediately regarded as one of the greatest games of all time. Improving and expanding upon its predecessors, Wild Hunt allows players to explore an expansive fantasy world while completing a huge range of different quests. The game’s narrative design received particular praise, since every side quest features its own storyline and delves into an aspect of Geralt’s character. Mods have allowed fans to make their own changes and improvements to the game, with one popular concept being a first-person mod for Witcher 3 which has been recreated and improved by various modders.

Improving upon past attempts at turning The Witcher 3 into a first-person experience, Nexus Mods user crthdr recently launched the Gervant First Person mod. As reported by PC Gamer and shared to YouTube by brandonzxcv, this new fan creation lets players actually engage in combat from an immersive new perspective. The mod allows for up-close and personal battles against The Witcher 3’s various threats, which is something that past mods were typically unable to accomplish. Custom animations let players attack, block and cast Signs from Geralt’s point of view, making CD Projekt Red’s masterpiece look more like Skyrim.
Mods are an excellent way for gamers to make fun additions to The Witcher 3, but some modders are simply interested in maintaining the game’s already-established content. One Witcher 3 mod fixes missing lore, making it generally easier for players to immersive themselves in the title’s dark fantasy setting. Typos and spacing issues are fixed throughout the game, making it easier to actually read the game’s extensive journal and appendix entries. Lore inconsistencies are also changed, making journal entries more accurately reflect in-game events so players are never left confused.
The Witcher 3 and Skyrim have frequently been compared by fans, and the Gervant First Person mod bridges the gap by giving The Witcher 3 truly immersive first-person combat. The title was not developed with a first-person perspective in mind, but crthdr has gone the extra mile by making animations fit perfectly with the new angle. The project allows players to fully embody the White Wolf Geralt as he purges the world of inhuman monstrosities.
