ArenaNet has announced new changes coming to their March 10th update for Guild Wars 2 that will finally see a first-person camera option added to the game, one that has been missing since the game's official launch three years ago.
Like other MMO's, activating the first-person view will be as simple as scrolling the camera all the way forward, and no restrictions are in place as to when or where you can use it. Finally, its time to see those vistas in glorious first-person view.
Of course like any update to an MMO it isn't just first-person view coming in the March 10th update, with additional camera changes being added. These include: a field of view slider for struggling users; a position slider split between horizontal position and vertical position; collision sensitivity that will determine when the camera will "snap in" upon how much stuff is between the character and camera; and changes to the camera now focusing on the player's head, which should make us Norn players feel rather tall compared to the puny Asura.
ArenaNet will be showing off the update in a Twitch stream later tonight, but further information can also be read in the blog update here

I've returned after not playing for two years and its super refreshing with all the massive updates to UI and combat. I had some big problems with the game's mechanics way back but they've all been ironed out. There's also that great sense that I can return at any time and not have to worry about a subscription.
