Dead Space fan mod turns the game into a first-person experience
A fan-made mod enables the original version of Dead Space to be played in first-person mode. Reverse Engineering Gamer created the mod, first released in 2008 and available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, turns the third-person game into a terrifying first-person survival horror experience. The mod can be downloaded from Nexus mods and required several months of tweaking and tuning to make it playable while retaining the difficulty of the original game.
The original Dead Space by Visceral Games, and its 2023 remake, showed the protagonist Issac Clarke’s back and body, which features health and other HUD elements. The mod eliminates the elements and turns the game into an FPS experience, enhancing the scares and difficulty. The mod creator admits that there were some frustrating times while making the mod, but overall, had a lot of fun working on the project. Players will have to apply health packs into their faces without knowing their condition while running from enemies.
