It goes without saying that Ready At Dawn’s newest game, The Order: 1886, wasn’t received as the smash hit that they had hoped and expected it to be. The pre launch leaks and controversial game length, which of course will vary from player to player, followed by the post launch conversations regarding overall quality and those debatable “cinematic” black bars did little to cement its place in history as a classic.
But having said that, the game certainly did nail its vision of an alternate timeline London where the modern equivalent of the Knights of The Round Table do battle with steam punkish weaponry. The trailer shows a brief jaunt through some of the game’s action sequences with some dry British banter being thrown in between Galahad and Isabeau.
The delivery of Galahad’s lines, which come quickly and without missing a beat are perfectly countered by Isabeau’s wounding retorts. The Order may not have shocked you in terms of gameplay, but it’s characters are certainly charming.
