Destiny: Third-person Camera Toggle Needed

destiny third person camera


















Bungie's FPS Destiny originally began it's days as a third-person only shooter and most players who have experienced the thrill and enjoyment of sandbox games will agree that it should have kept that way or at least given players the freedom to toggle between cameras.Whilst the absence of a third person camera toggle is by no means a deal breaker to 'some' it's still a problem, especially when a game such as Destiny prompts you to create your own character, a character which you will see very little of outside secure areas.

 Skyrim did it the right way, allowing players to toggle between both first and third person view to their leisure without limiting the player's choice, something which is unfortunately missing from Destiny, a highly visual open world shooter.The problem is that Destiny is a first-person shooter with tons of customization, which can be troubling as a concept. It's similar to the original Elder Scrolls games, where you can spend all day creating your character's face only to never seeing it again once the game begins.

Bungie has a somewhat minor solution to this problem, when in non-combat quest hub you are given the choice to roam about in third-person, and during fights the camera will pull back during special combat moves so you can see them in all their glory, but you have to wonder if that will be enough.
If Bungle wants it's players to care about which armour they wish to wear (beyond stats), they're going to need to let players look at themselves a lot. Granted, a third-person view in combat would be a huge balance issue for competitive multiplayer but Bungie must can figure something out.

What's the the solution you ask? Well obviously a third camera toggle would be a step in the right direction and allows players to become more immersed in the story and scenery whilst taking pride in their outward appearance aka virtual vanity, do you want a 3rd person view for your character?


Helmet-free option

Alongside the third person view, there should be a helmet-free option seeing as you are able to customize your character's face at the beginning of the game, even if it's just for vanity reasons and you're the type of player who enjoys admiring your character's visual appearance. If Rockstar can do a reverse and imprement first-person to Grand Theft Auto V, there's nothing stopping Bungie from adding these features to Destiny.

  1. YES PLEASE!! This would both cater for FPS and 3rd person fans!

  2. Well, i always get some kind of sick when playing FPS and can't play for so long. TPS allows me to play longer... besides, the "cool" factor of seeing the looks of the avatar is always nice. Though Hybrid as in Skyrim would be best option as will fulfill everyone's needs

  3. I actually would prefer both, third person for exploration and general combat but i'd like first person for fine tuned aiming. I do that all the time when i'm playing fallout. I agree though that tps has an advantage over fps in terms of situational awareness.

  4. After playing Mass Effect I was interested in checking out this game, but then I find out like Planetside 2 they made the wrong choice in forcing first person. I can't play first person makes me sick, so I unfortunately will not be buying

  5. I think it'd be cool to have the option for exploration but I doubt the gunplay would feel half as good in 3rd person, though that's the way it is in Beth games and I still like having the option so I say add it in Bungie.

    I don’t get the appeal of first person games. I would mind if say you looked down and could see your legs, or your reflection was shown in glass etc. Rather than what first person games are which is floating hands in your screen. Personally after Gear Of War launched i thought all shooters would be like that. It truly is the best of both worlds. Destiny has missed a golden opportunity to end the horror that is first person perspective.

  7. Should’ve kept Destiny 3rd person, might’ve been better. Even though I’m excited for this I’m sick of fps games. It should’ve been an option to use fp or tp.

  8. I would have loved for it to have stayed in Third Person View, since i love that type of viewpoint. But I'm sure i will enjoy playing the game none the less.

  9. Seem to remember that at one point in its development the first Halo game was 3rd person only as well. It seems to be part of Bungie’s process.

  10. 3rd person is the best way to make the most ass-kicking-est games so that makes no sense. From third person there's a ton more you can do and see than in first person. It was probably hella hard to make that happen in an MMO. Sharing a big old world full of missions is going to be easier online in first person, plus that's where their experience is.

  11. i would love to play this game but i will not if the combat mode must be played in the 1st person.

  12. I would really like it to be like skyrim or fallout where you can switch camera perspectives. And I mean like in actual battles/exploration, not just social activities.

  13. I really wish they hadn't gone for a FPS. For me, the cool part about this game would be player / hero customization. The concepts of the enemies and player characters really look nice. I'd like to be able to see my armor and gear while playing.

  14. I still think its silly to put a big emphasis on armor appearance in a largely first person game. :/

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yes.......

    More options the better. I'd love for this to be an option for us to switch to 3rd person view throughout the whole game. I never understood why so much customization when you can't see your character.

  16. Toggled 3rd person view in combat areas would be great, I feel it's rather disappointing to be able to customise your guardian and not be able to see him/her unless you are in the city and other non-combat areas

    ReplyDelete
  17. Even if it's seldom used (like in Skyrim), the ability to switch to 3rd person at any given moment to marvel at the light bouncing off your new gear or at the animations would be very cool.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yes, make it happen. Bungie needs to see this...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Seriously, all of those wanting to see this game in third person need to start a petition for it!

  20. Here's your voice, have at it...and make it loud!

  21. I couldn't agree more with all of this.

    In this day an age, why isn't third person an option by default? We are now in next gen yet we are being forced into a way to play. Every FPS should be following SKYRIM's model. Bungie have made all the animations needed for third person play, and we see all our friends running around looking beautiful, so why shouldn't we be allowed to see ourselves and set third person?!

    I personally think the third person toggle should be in the options of the game, rather than mapable to a button. Their should be 3 options, Never, Social, Always. That way, the FPS fanatics can be happy, and so can the third person fans.

  22. yea i won't buy destiny because of this. As much as it cost to make this game you can even put that option in there! Mistake! There a loads of people who hate fp games and never touch them. Patch that!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I agree I wish they would at least give you the option to go from third person to first person I would love to see my character once I've created it see him in action hopefully they're here this outcry and make some changes

    ReplyDelete
  24. yes please add third person as an option to swap in and out of.
    I loved mass effect and this game reminds me of it except I cant play in third person.
    the only reason I have not purchased this game is because I would be stuck playing in1st person.
