Bethesda’s Indiana Jones is likely to mix up with 1st and 3rd person, exclusively on Xbox & PC
A user with contacts in the development of the Indiana Jones title assures that the game will have sections in the third and first person, but that it will not be possible to change the perspective with a button.
The publisher Bethesda Softworks and the developer MachineGames, authors of Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, announced a few years ago a new Indiana Jones video game, which will arrive at a date yet to be determined on Xbox Series X / S and computers. Even though we have known about the existence of the title for some time, the truth is that the details that we have received so far about its history and gameplay are rather scarce, although new information has recently been revealed from Nick Baker, co-founder of XBOX ERA.
Baker states that, according to several sources close to the development, the Indiana Jones title from MachineGames will mix third-person and first-person sections, so the game will change perspective depending on the situation in which it finds itself our intrepid archaeologist. The same user points out that, although they have not specified how and under what circumstances the perspective changes will occur, he can ensure that players will not have the possibility of switching between the first and third person at will.
Todd Howard promises a unique mix of genres
“I would say it’s a mash-up. It’s unique, it’s not an intentional thing, so it does a lot of different things,” Todd Howard, head of Bethesda Softworks, responded to an interviewer when asked if the game would be an adventure. action in the style of the Uncharted saga or the modern Tomb Raider trilogy. Howard describes Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark as his favorite movie of all time, and insists on the idea that the title is “a love letter to Indiana Jones”. It should be noted that the story of the game by the developers of Wolfenstein is based on an idea that originated in the creative mind of Howard.
