Is the game in first or third person?
You can zoom out from 1st person to 3rd person and there are some cases where 1st person is forced at the moment.
Do I have a third-person view when piloting a ship?
There’s currently no ship-wide 3rd person, only when you’re running about. There have been some mumblings by the watercooler about external cameras, no actual design on them yet though.
