Bloodborne fans just don’t quit.
Modders Garden of Eyes and Zullie the Witch have teamed up to create a first-person mod for Bloodborne. “It is finally time for Bloodborne to be played as a first person game!” Garden of Eyes wrote beneath the mod’s trailer. Fans can catch glimpses of boss fights in the trailer, and oh boy do some of ’em look even more terrifying up close. The sheer scale of these beasts are amplified via the first-person POV, and some of the attacks are made even more gruesome and stomach-churning, such as visceral attacking a giant pig. Altogether, the first-person Bloodborne mod looks like a fun experience and a good excuse to return to Yharnam.
“I was approached by [Garden of Yes], who wanted to make a Bloodborne First Person mod. I volunteered the framework of my Dark Souls III version,” Zullie the Witch wrote on Twitter. “With a little adjusting, it’s essentially the same experience.” Garden of Eyes states that the mod will be available “very soon.”
According to Eurogamer, the first-person mode will be activated by equipping the new Great One Hat, available from the start of the game. “Garden of Eyes had to edit some of the holding animations for some of the weapons so they had a proper view when wielded,” Eurogamer writes. The floating hands make the game almost look like a PSVR title, which — yes, please. I wouldn’t mind exploring all the horrors Yharnam has to offer in virtual reality.
This first-person mod is next in a long-line of fan-made Bloodborne projects, such as the PS1 “demake” and Yarntown, a Zelda-inspired tribute to Bloodborne. You can watch the trailer for the mod below.
