Did flying over perilous gaps with your grappling hook make your stomach drop? Were you always calm, cool, and collected as the Wolf or did you spend hours flailing against the enemies of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice before the mechanics finally clicked? Well, if you have Sekiro for the PC and want a novel reason to dive back in, a new first-person mod turns it into an up-close and personal experience. (And, just hazarding a guess here, probably makes it harder.)
Made by modder Zullie the Witch and released on Nexus Mods, the first-person mod is a Cheat Engine 6.6 script for the 1.04 patch version of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Apply it and, as promised, you'll see the game from a Wolf's-eye-view. From Zullie the Witch's trailer for the mod, you can see that in first-person view your arms float in front in a manner reminiscent of many virtual reality games. Parenting the arms directly to a first-person camera would likely require much more work in the way of new animations and tweaks to the gameplay, but here it looks like you're getting Sekiro's core gameplay as-is, just from a different perspective.
For visibility's sake, you can toggle whether or not the Mortal Blade is shown, as it can clip through the plane of the view if enabled.
There are all kinds of mods for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice available at Nexus, but we're still particularly partial to the one that replaces the Chained Ogre with Shrek. If you combine the two mods for a first-person ninja takedown of Shrek, please be sure to let us know in the comments.
