In recent years, Capcom has consistently enjoyed success across its long-standing franchises, with the Monster Hunter series continuing to break records, and Resident Evil Village is on the cusp of that success. A few days after its launch, Capcom said it had sold 3 million copies of the Resident Evil Village game globally. This popularity also contributes to making Resident Evil 8 the top choice of PC modders.
TPS for Resident Evil Village
With a diverse amount of mods, the creativity of the fan community is clearly demonstrated. By transforming game characters into other popular or well-known characters. Mods can also get pretty weird at times, like changing the head of little Rosemary to Chris Redfield, and while modding the game’s camera to a third-person perspective is perfectly normal, it now leads to the unusual.
The two recent game releases are both remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3, with a convenient over-the-shoulder perspective. But Resident Evil Village brings players back to the first-person perspective of Resident Evil 7, and the main character Ethan Winters. And if anyone who has played through RE7 knows, not a single scene in the game Ethan reveals his true face. All images related to him have lost the first part. Making the fan community extremely curious about the face of this lucky man. Although there has been data research in the game’s setup file and found complete creations of Ethan Winters. But if hope the third-person mod can let players see his face. Even if it’s just once, maybe you should check it out for yourself through the video below.
The mod works but not good for now
Modder called FluffyQuack created a third-person camera Mod for Resident Evil Village, and included a video showing how it works. Through the Mercenaries mode, the biggest reveal of this mod is that it shows the Ethan Winters character model… without his head. This is likely mainly due to the game’s usual camera placement. In addition, this mod in progress also has some strange points, including the camera will sometimes go through the wall. Ethan looks in the wrong direction while shooting, the camera switches back to the first-person view when being shot hit, and Ethan fails to interact with certain items. FluffyQuack says he’s still working on fixing mod issues for Resident Evil Village. While Capcom probably doesn’t intend to release for a third-person mode.
Besides that, FluffyQuack also experienced some interesting things related to this third person. Like replacing the main character Ethan Winters as Cassandra Dimitrescu wandering around Beneviento House with the third-person view. Using its perspective to hide certain elements is not new to game developers. CD Projekt Red did the same thing with Cyberpunk 2077 and the game’s character movements. Based on the fact that players won’t be able to see themselves throughout the experience, the third-person mods for Cyberpunk 2077 have “solved” that, but also create a few strange things like parts of the character model that do not move or move near the center of the body. Resident Evil Village is currently out on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Google Stadia.
