More About Third-Person MMORPG

The third-person view in MMORPG is used to create an entirely new experience, and visual style, which is based on the classic model of storytelling. In these games, your character explores the world on its own, and player can watch the hero's actions from the side; some developers choose to mix these systems and create the projects with unique variable visual style. The first and the most straightforward system of view in Third-Person MMORPG use pre-scripted and fixed angles of view; this method allows developers to create the most cinematographic and picturesque scenes because all views of perspective can be prescribed and programmed manually. The fixed third-person camera is one of the oldest methods of this visual style. Another technique of camera movement is a tracking camera. This type of graphics has several significant disadvantages and bugs, such as the incorrect representation of specific angles of view; also, it can't be changed manually by the player. Still, this type of graphics is comfortable enough for active and smooth gameplay.

The most advanced type of camera in Third-Person MMORPG is called an Interactive system. It's improved version of the fixed camera view, which can be customized by the player and automatically fixed by the artificial intelligence of the game. This system allows to get a unique experience of smooth third-person gameplay with no bugs and distractions; even though players can change the angle of view manually, most of the work is still done by AI, which helps to play the game with no worries.
