Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Open Mod is in early stages of development. This Early Access is a polished, stable build meant to showcase game mechanics and customizability features, a decent amount of content to play with and to recieve feedback while also building our community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Open Mod will be in Early Access until we feel we scaled it enough. Even though it currently has enough content to even be considered a full game, what we plan for this game is much more than what it currently is. The time we will be in Early Access could mean one year or 5 years, depending on the budget. We have plans of updating this game long term therefore there isn't really a point where we can say "look, it's done". Thats because we will always look for ways to improve and scale.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will include much more content, more maps, more co-op game modes, better and improved mechanics etc.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game has enough content to be considered even a full game. It has got 3 PvP competitive game modes, 3 casual PvP game modes and 2 PvE game modes (Zombies and Extraction) , enough to give the players some idea about what it going on here. The PvE Game modes are behind a 2$ (Zombies) and a 6$ (Extraction) paywalls but now can be redeemed for free if you join our Discord and get the free store redeemable key.

Unlike PvP game modes which will always be free, all future PvE game modes will be unlockable by purchasing them, The price will be decided based on the cost of production. This aspect has been explained in Devlog#2 here: https://youtu.be/YwW20bt1OAs?t=1053 (timestamp included).”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“As stated above, PvP side will always be free in Open Mod, during and after Early Access, and the PvE side will be under a fair paywall, mostly based on the cost of production.

This aspect has been explained in Devlog#2 here: https://youtu.be/YwW20bt1OAs?t=1053 (timestamp included).”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Any aspect of the game can be voted within our community, we want to stick close to our community.

We are also preparing a local skin system where you could load textures for any attachment or weapon by URL and play with those skins locally.

We will also work for our community by adding custom, personalised items for the ones who want that.”

About This Game

Open Mod is a free-to-play, tactical, extreme hardcore first person shooter with immersive aspects that may not have been seen before. This game is being brought to you by only 2 developers with a great passion for FPS games, trying to bring more immersion in both casual and competitive scenes. Open Mod's goal is to grow slowly and steadily and become relevant in the FPS scene.


The gameplay should be on point. This game is addressed to players that like immersive tactical, extreme-hardcore, round-based no-respawning competitive game modes and want to get immersed fully into the battle. Our primary focus is on the Defusal (Demolition) game mode, since it's a 'standard' competitive esport game mode and we, among other objectives, want to become an esport. But our approach to it is rather harder than traditional Defusal game modes, the player has to enter a planting/defusing code manually using the numpad keys after memorizing it during the round. This, combined with the aspects of our gameplay that will be mentioned below, we believe make for an unique immersive fps tactical experience that has a real chance of becoming something.




However, we've recently added casual PvP game modes such as Domination but made it in our own way, using the tablet to hack objectives, TDM and DM along with a PvE Zombie Wave survival game mode and a PvE Extraction style game mode with cosmetics looting so that our players can have fun on various levels, not only competitive. (*Note: to avoid any confusion, we will mention here too, PvP will always be free in Open Mod along with every weapon and attachment being unlocked. However, the PvE side will be under a fair paywall. Additionally, until the game gets a decent playerbase we've decided to make the zombies and extraction free for a limited amount of time (basically until the game has a decent playerbase, no exact date. Side note: once redeemed the player will keep those game modes in their account even after they will be paid again), so that the players can have some fun solo or with a friend while we build a proper PvP player base. To receive FREE zombies and extraction redeemable store keys join Open Mod Discord at: https://dsc.gg/openmod)

We recommend watching the entire Open Mod #3 Devlog to see details about the defusal game mode, domination and the zombie wave survival game mode. Link to it HERE

Core features of Open Mod:



- There is no in-game HUD, we've moved everything except the crosshair to a tablet that is a core element of the game. The tablet will be used to check the minimap, text chat, see equipped loadout, see objectives etc. There is much to say about it but to save you the reading of a lot of words you can simply check THIS short video which shows an overview of the tablet.


- There is proximity voice chat and an animated radio voice chat that players can use to communicate. But with caution as the enemy could hear you talking if you are in their range. So when the player is in enemy area they can use the Left hand animations to communicate or the text chat from the tablet. Those mentioned features of the gameplay have been showed more in-depth in Open Mod #2 Devlog HERE


- There is no scoreboard or killfeed during the round, only at the end of a round and at the end of the game. This should cause the players to get immersed into the battle and communicate via radio when they took somebody down, since there would be no other way of knowing how many enemies are alive unless the player calls it out via radio. There is also no hitmarker on HUD or hitmarker sound so you wont really know if you hit the opponent, enhancing the realism of the battle,


- Our new mag system was rewritten from the ground, the player can carry only 4 mags per weapon, we've added a mag check system and animations and a reload type that keeps the mag so you can use it later, that takes slightly more time to perform. To save you the reading of a lot of words you can simply check THIS short video out, which shows you an analysis of how the new mag system, mag check and reload keep mag works.



- There is a decent Tarkov-like weapon customization system as well as some cursed attachment setups available for you to play with.
- We've recently implemented the attachment skin system which allows the players to equip a different skin for any part of the weapon or match the attachment skin with the gun skin.

This new system is presented in Open Mod #3 Devlog from our youtube channel HERE, timestamp included. Please check it out to see more.

There is also THIS, shorter video which shows how the inventory works.

Later edit: there are 2 additional systems for the weapon customization system:
-custom local skin system, unprecedented in any fps game, this system allows you to load textures in the game by URL for any weapon and any attachment! Video HERE
-attachment moving on rail system, this should make our customization menu complete! There is freedom to do anything now! Video HERE



- There are quite a few first person experience customizing options, such as the custom weapon positioning, custom and independent fields of views, dual render and non dual render scopes, preference options such as "should sprint override aim", minimap being static or follow the player and many more preference/personalization options to get the best skill out of you!


- There is also the ability to pick from a variety of weapon animations, such as reloads/draw/inspect. There are not too many weapons that have more than one reload/draw/inspect animation currently, but some do, such as the AKM, Scar or the pistols. There will be many more added in time.

To learn how to switch your weapon animations watch this video HERE, timestamp included.


- There are 12 slots where you can equip left hand signal animations. You can either toggle them by the F keys (F1, F2, F3 etc) or by holding the middle mouse button to select from the wheel, then tap the middle mouse button to play it. To learn everything about the left hand animations check out THISshort video, timestamp included.


- There is a smart watch that will show the round timer, health points, armor points and a green signal icon if you're playing Defusal or Domination, which will let you know you are in the range of the objective, therefore you are able to capture it, or in Elimination there will be a hazard icon showing you the zone is getting very close to you.


- Open Mod uses highly realistic scope shaders with realistic vignette and eye relief. We've got both dual render and non dual render scopes in-game but the non-dual render ones do not look tunnel visioned but highly realistic too, due to our shaders and our custom rendering passes allowing us to pull of non-dual render realistic scopes, almost performance-free.


- Our controller is written from the ground with a lot of features in mind, such as a realistic leaning (click HERE to see what we mean by that), sliding, left hand anims, left handed mode, hip aiming/point shooting, double animation sprinting with pre-sprint animations and perfect blending to aiming, realistic aiming down sight, custom IK weapon positioning, free looking, head nodding (head moves in the direction you are free looking), 4 vaulting mechanic types and more. Every action you do is seen by other players exactly as you see it in first person. It is also a full body controller meaning that if you are as crazy as us and not feel good if there are no legs or if the legs are not part of an actual full body, then this is for you!


- Unprecedented Custom IK interactions with doors and other interactable objects! This deserves a separate paragraph because those interactions are the best interactions you've ever seen to this day! The hand actually reaches and touches the door knobs or the door locks! This system was created for Open Mod VR version but now we've managed to implement it in Open Mod PC Standalone version too! It was not easy but it is totally worth the effort!
- Those doors can also be leg kicked, breached with C4 or with the battering ram (not all doors can be leg kicked, but all doors can be C4ed and Rammed)
- Interacting with a hybrid scope will be done with the hand actually reaching it and toggling it! Same for flashlight or laser toggling on/off, it's done realistically, hand reaches and toggles them! You can see how that looks HERE (keep in mind the animations are just placeholders at this moment, they will be revamped very soon)
- We've created Realtime map variants, where all the lights are realtime and could be destroyed by players by shooting them, or control them through light switches or turn off entire houses by turning off the main house power source. You can see a video of how that looks HERE


- There is a point budget inventory system that balances the loadouts so that players manage their points how they want, depending on their preference. This system is similar to Insurgency Sandstorm's and is designed to prevent fully maxed out loadouts.


- All weapons and attachments from the game are unlocked from the start, there is no pay to win scheme, absolutely everything will be unlocked, the only thing that gets in the way is the point budget system mentioned in the above paragraph. However, there are and there will be weapon skins and attachment skins that will be paid. Player model skins will always have their color scheme (dark swat-ish blue for military and dark red-ish for terrorist team) so nobody can say that we will sell camouflage skins for player models. There will also be paid animations. Basically some cosmetic items will have a price in our stores to help us sustain the game.




Open Mod has been built with scaling in mind, meaning that adding more content of all kinds into the game such as weapon skins, attachment skins, charms, tags, animations, even weaponery or custom maps, can be added in a matter of hours into the main game. Also our latest implementation of Unity's Addressables system allows us to have as much content into the game as we want, without having to load it all at the start of the game, but only when needed. With those said, we strongly believe we could add more content in time and at some point we could become the game with most customizability. We've already got 500+ skins available for a large variety of weapons and attachments, and 300+ attachments to choose from, plus individual weapon parts. Building content on top of this will eventually result in a highly populated with content game.

DO NOT FORGET!! The essence of Open Mod lies in the concept of community - we are close to our community, listening to feedback and encouraging people to express their preferences or even getting involved in any matter regarding the development of the game, as well as integrating user-made content in the game such as skins, charms, animations or even custom maps. The community functions on our Discord server Open Mod Republic; make sure you check it out to stay updated on things we have done, features that we are currently working on and plans for the future.

Additionally, in our Discord you can find a few in-game weapon and attachment 3d models that could get you started with modding right away! Show us what you got!
