‘If they think our game is shit, it’s fine by me,’ says The Order 1886 CTO

Bold words there, Ready at Dawn.

The Order 1886

The so called ‘blowout’ of The Order 1886 last week was extremely disappointing– it was just a three minute long video that showed a generic third person action game with the same misguided focus on cinematism that defines so many Sony first party games. The day that the video went live, I openly expressed my disappointment at it, and apparently, I wasn’t the only one either, because Ready at Dawn Chieft Technology Officer Andrea Pessino responded to the criticisms leveled against the game.

“An Important clarification: I didn’t write here because I want to interfere with the discussion or influence the general opinion or even less intimidate anyone,” he began.

“If one thinks our game is Shit [literally: liquid shit], it’s very fine with me. : D Of course I’d prefer a different opinion, and I’m sorry that we failed to attract a possible user, but for sure I’m not hurt or angry. An opinion is an opinion – and we’re talking about entertainment here, not a matter of life or death.

“We do our best and we’d like to do things that a whole lot of people will like, but it’s stupid to think that everyone will like them. Even more so today, given the costs and the lower development chances, it’s important to create projects with a lot of personality and polarizing choices. Some will like those choices (we hope many will!), some will be indifferent, some will hate them… and that’s fine.”

Those are reasonable words, and at least he is willing to accept that not everyone will like the direction his game takes, and is willing to take it in his stride.

Pessino also discussed the game’s release date.

“I can’t comment on the dates. Believe me, all I do is put myself in trouble for the things I say on Twitter. Have mercy. : (”

I might not necessarily like what I see of The Order, but I really do like how Ready at Dawn is conducting itself. It’s refreshingly honest, and they have a fan in me.

    LOL even the developer knows what trash this is. LOL have fun Sony Ponies on your indie box LMFAO!!!

      Evil and deranged fanboy shill. The Order will be a good game.

      PS4 has the superior version of all console AAA multiplats, The Order, Driveclub, MLB 14: The Show, Deep Down, Uncharted 4, TLOU Remake, more dev support including indies, free to play games and MMOs like FFXIV and Warframe, and unannounced 1st party games (Gran Turismo, God of War, Media Molecule, Quantic Dream, etc.) Titanfall 2 and future 3rd party games will almost certainly be on PS4. All of Sony’s 1st parties during the PS3 years are still active and working on PS4 games.

      Recently Sony has filed trademarks or had leaks for no less than 6 games. Entwined, Kill Strain, Blood Borne, Dark Chronicles, Project Beast and Guns Up. Expect a big E3 reveal of new games.

      PS4 games not on Xbox One: Killzone, inFamous Second Son, Dynasty Warriors 8, Final Fantasy XIV, Warframe, DC Universe, Yakuza Isshin, MLB 14 The Show, Bound by Flame, Injustice Gods Among Us, Knack, Natural Doctorine, and a ton of indies including Resogun

      Sony has more 1st party studios actually working on PS4 games (not mobile or cloud or whatever) and 1st party franchises.

      I actually agree with you on the game ps4lol. It looks good. You don’t have to trash the other console to make your point though.

    • ps4lol

      Both consoles will have good exclusive games, but it’s obvious PS4 is more powerful and will sell more this gen.

    • jent

      It is obvious your dislike of the Xbox One guides every post you make (at least as far as I can tell from your visible posts). You could say that I defend the Xbox, but in the end a significant motive of yours is to tear down the focus of your hate. You should think about how you want to be known in this online community.

      There u go again with ur pathetic self, give it up man ur so lame all u do is go on sony articles to hate, if the xbox is so fun why are u always on so y articles hating?

  • GK15

    I think it looks cool. Just nothing that special, and certainly not the apex of next Gen gaming that some fanboys make it out to be.

    It is good to see the PS4 finally have some AAA’s worth talking about. When I get my PS4 eventually, I would like to play it.

    • Georges

      Actually I think they are not very good at promoting the game.. It looks incredibly realistic and immersive IMO

  • Crapgamer

    You can just picture Sony executives saying “We need a game like Gears Of War, but not Gears Of War”. Why’s Sony charging to play online with the PS4 if most of their first party titles don’t have a multiplayer mode?

    • ps4lol

      Servers still cost money, amazing concept. 3rd party game online isn’t free on Xbox either.

      The Order will be a good game, thanks.

    • Watch dog sack

      Because not every game needs tacked on useless multiplayer. When is the last time you played a third person shooter for months on end online.

      And the Gears of War reference is stupid. The Order looks nothing like Steriods men of war.

    Are games art or entertainment; make up your mind, industry.
