When it comes to how the game is played, Sony’s newest Santa Monica Studio God of War is meant to be played from a third-person perspective. This is how each part of the game unfolds. But now, a user has decided to mix things up and see what the game would look like from a totally different point of view, and the result is an interesting one that continues to highlight just how remarkable the animation work is in the game.
Seen in a new video from Speclizer, the user has created a mod to show us what the world of God of War looks like from a first-person view. The video highlights this perspective through the eyes of several different characters from the game, including Kratos, Atreus, and Mimir. With so many characters appearing much closer to the screen than normal thanks to this mod, it is much more remarkable to see how realistic the facial animations are in God of War as a whole.
The only disappointment in the video is that we can’t see what the match itself would look like from this perspective. Obviously that would be a much more difficult task to get it to work properly, but unfortunately we will have to keep imagining what it would look like. Some of the key scenes from God of War are the only sections that have been highlighted in this video.
It’s also worth noting that if you take a look at the video, attached above, there are some pretty major spoilers for God of War included. If you haven’t somehow played the game yourself yet, you might just want to see the first few scenes rather than see it all. Also, you should absolutely play God of War if you have the means to do so because it is one of the best games in recent years.
