I would think you would want only 1st person view for a game like this.  I would think it would make it more realistic and would allow you to be snuck up on.  I haven't played the first Darkfall but if I was in 1st person view all the time I would be paranoid about what, or who, could be sneaking up behind me and would be looking around at all times.  I would think 3rd person view would take away from the hardcore aspect of the game.  I'm looking forward to trying it regardless.

hell yeah ill be playing it...

the first few months of Darkfall was amazing, sure there was bugs and other isseus but some of the battles where just massive.

 

You had 3rd person view for melee and normall moving around, but it was not zooned out very far so yeah you could get snuck up on and i think that was the idea behind it..

A lot of first person view games can give me a siezure. Very few of them won't. Like Planetside 1 first person view didn't bother me at all, Planetside 2 though it does and gave me a siezure trying to play it, so I cannot play it when it comes out. I'd prefer to not have to try out a game in first person to see if it's going to make me ill. Nothing against DF, I just can't play a lot of first person view games. As for the sneaking up on you part, I played Dark Age of Camelot and it wasn't first person view and people could still sneak up on you and the game was very exciting, you never knew who would pop over and kill you while you were out in the frontiers killing mobs.

What happens when you log off your characters????.....

The third person is a very close third person, it's not one where you can scroll out and look around. It's a fixed camera not far behind the character. You still have to look around constantly to make sure you're not being stalked. The new sound system should make the game truly epic for anyone running around solo.

The only time you can really pan the camera around is when you're on a mount or sailing a ship.

This is a video of the older DF1.0 game, may want to turn the audio off. It shows the combat in first person, third person, and ship combat from the captains view. Once again the game will have new graphics, surround sound system, user interface, spell system, etc etc etc, you can find much more info at forums.darkfallonline.com.

That doesn't look real shaky or quirky, I may actually get to try the game out. Will have to keep an eye on it for new gameplay videos to see if I'm going to be able to try it out for myself. I did have to turn it down though, my goodness, that guy's voice......

Better than the original I would say :D

 

Also, of course I will be trying it out, anything else would be an outrage!

I played the original for a couple of months, but didn't like it that much. Maybe I'll come back to check UW, but won't be at launch for sure.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

Nah, I am done with PvP focused communities in general and the memory of 'Forumfall' pre launch for this game still makes me shudder.
