The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt players on PC can now view the world in first-person through a mod that puts the third-person camera inside Geralt's head which makes for a fresh take on exploration.

One of the first things that a player will notice about The Witcher 3 is its vast and open world. There are a lot of trees and massive landscapes that can make great wallpapers if only Geralt was not in the way of an in-game screenshot.

Now, players can explore the game's world without having to look at Geralt all the time. SkacikPL has made a first-person mod for players who want to see The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's world literally in another perspective, GameSpot has learned.

The Witcher 3 mod itself can be downloaded through Nexus Mods, which is a gold mine for mods on various games. It is completely free but the first-person mod does not seem to be quite complete yet.

SkacikPL said that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt mod is limited to exploration only as the camera would instantly switch back to the third-person view once Geralt enters combat, PC Gamer reported. Still, it makes the game playable again for those who have already finished it once.

The Nexus Mods user began developing the mod in March 2016 and was skeptical on a public release as there were several technical issues at the time. Fortunately, he was able to squash most of the bugs which makes the mod playable now.

However, The Witcher 3 first-person mod camera itself is a little wobbly as the camera is directly seated on Geralt's head. SkacikPL was able to modify the values to make it barely noticeable but players with sharp eyes could easily spot the bobbing.

First-person mode during combat seems highly unlikely at the moment as SkacikPL said that he needs to understand more of the game's "subsystems" and free time is not something that he has more of. Other users could hopefully put in work to make the combat mode possible.

Users who are interested in the first-person mod for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can download it on Nexus Mods for free. Experienced modders could also help improve the mod even further.
