You Can Play Mortal Kombat 11 In First-Person, If For Some Reason That Is Something You'd Like To Do

A new mod for Mortal Kombat 11 gives you two new camera options: third-person, like a third-person action game, and the up-close-and-grisly first-person.


Mortal Kombat 11 is gruesome in all the ways we've come to expect from NetherRealms' organ-shredding fighter, but what if you could witness all that viscera from a more intimate perspective? Well, stay away from me you weirdo; and also, you can!

Modder Ermaccer (via DSOgaming) has released the Custom Cameras mod on Github. It includes both first-person and third-person modes, the latter of which places the camera behind your back similar to what you might find in a third-person action game. The first-person camera is really the draw, though, letting you see your opponent straight-on.

A video shows the mod in action, and it seems to run pretty smoothly on the whole. Be sure not to use this in any competitive modes, though, because as a mod it could be determined to give you an unfair advantage.

Mortal Kombat released in April 2019, but it's been getting a steady stream of updates that has added new characters and even an epilogue story. An Ultimate Version release came alongside new DLC characters Rambo, Mileena, and Rain. A recent skin pack included skins based on the cult 1995 film.
