Indiana Jones Game Will Reportedly Feature Both First & Third Person Camera Perspectives
Bethesda and MachineGames’ upcoming Indiana Jones game will reportedly feature both first-person and third-person camera perspectives.
Speaking during the latest episode of The XboxEra podcast, co-host Shpeshal Nick stated that, from what he had heard, Bethesda and MachineGames’ Indiana Jones game is going to feature both first-person and third-person camera perspectives. Something like in Starfield, then? Not quite.
According to Nick, unlike in Starfield, players will not have the option to choose their preferred camera perspective at any given time during gameplay. Instead, the game will alter between both the first-person and third-person camera perspectives on its own, based on the section of the game that is being played. In other words, some sections will be played from the third-person perspective while some will be played in first-person.
Nick added that he didn’t know if this aspect of gameplay has been finalized, but based on what he had heard, this is how MachineGames has envisioned the gameplay. If we were to take a guess, it’s likely that sections involving heavy platforming will be played from the third-person camera perspective, while gunfight encounters will be played from the first-person perspective.
The upcoming Indiana Jones game was announced with a teaser trailer that was full of enticing indications about where the game may take place. It showed a passport, a hat, and a whip, among other things. Even more fascinating is the presence of what looks to be a plane ticket to Rome and the year date 1937. This date sets the events of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in the franchise’s history. The game may involve Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolini based on the era and location. In addition, the notes on the desk hint to the involvement of the Vatican and the US government.
