Perfect Dark seems to at least have the ability to be played in third person
Most people assumed that Perfect Dark would be a first-person shooter, just like its predecessors. Although this is probably correct, it seems that the game will also have some third-person gameplay.
In a new job ad for a Lead Gameplay Animator at Crystal Dynamics, we can read that one of the requirements for the person applying is: “Deep knowledge of game systems (in particular, experience in third and first person with weapons , displacement, melee and ranged weapons)”.
Aside from the short trailer below, which was shown alongside the Perfect Dark announcement back in 2021, there’s not really much else we know about the title, other than The Initiative and Crystal Dynamics are co-developing the new adventure. Joanna Dark. It’s not expected to be announced this year, and the most reasonable assumption right now is that we’ll be playing this remake in 2025 at the earliest.
