Is the game going to be third person based or is it just for dev?

I think that the game will come with both modes. But the player can't switch from one to the other. For example if you want to enter the combat mode the you will se first person, and when you are only going around then you will see third person...I don't know well......we will see biggrin

What do you think, is that a bad idea???

I don't know... switching between the modes might be glitchy.

I didn't play this game third person, but at the beginning, it just feels better to be first person.
Also jumping third person doesn't give me any 'trills' (or uhh... scaredomness? o_o) if i reach it or not..

I prefer first person... might also be better in combat, like oblivion.

Yes, I was thinkig of....when the player is in a dungeon or when he fights then he plays in first person view. When he is at the outside going around he will play with third person view. I think that would be nice and innovative?? Or not?

I think it will confuse the player.

Also, it destroys the mystery of ''you''.
You start in first person, unknown of your own character. Just like gordon freeman in half life.
Going third person just ruins that..

I'm sorry if it ruins your idea, but this are just my two cents..

That could be possible yeah..

How about this;
Once you found out who you are, you can go third person.

After you can do that, there will be a sneaking mission because you need to steal/rescue/kill someone/something because of the story.

Because, if you are third person, you can peek over walls and over corners, without enemies seeing you.
That's one of the biggest reasons i hate third person. However, in sneak it could be possible.

But ofcourse only if NPCs have enemy detection...

yeah, good idea but really very hard to implement....i think that this feature in a rpg isn't necessary. I think that it would be nice to travel in third person in the next chapters.....maybe I find another way to make the thirdperson usefull...

Or you can just make a third person & first person option so the player can switch between them easily..

I agree with Chaze007 in that you should have the option (but only once the player finds out who he is) to switch between first and third person. I don't know how hard or doable that is however.

I don't know I'm fixed with this:

When you will find out who you are, you're real aspect....there will be 2 modes, the combat mode and the travel mode.
Always when you want to switch to the combat mode it will switch with an animation to the first person view. Only there you can use spells, swords, bows, and
then when the fight is finished you can switch wiht another aniamtion to the thirdperson mode, but there you can't use any weapons, only go around.

And when you are in the first person view you move slowly, just like taking the target....if you want to ecape away you must switch to the travel mode(third person)
and run away!!! =) I think this would be nice nice nice biggrin

I'm also thinking of enable the third person view from beginning......because you can always look in the water to find out who you are XD bash
