The Order 1886_slides (6)

One of the games that PlayStation fans are looking forward to in 2014 is Ready at Dawn’s The Order 1886. The game is a PlayStation 4 exclusive and we think it will be one of the biggest games of 2014. The game takes in place in historic London as the main characters fight off against certain monsters who are a threat to humanity for centuries.

The game is feature on the cover of Gameinformer’s November issue and a number of details have been leaked out. New details include information about the graphics, the weapons and the indepth gameplay mechanics that the developers have been working on.

For more on The Order 1886, make sure you check its hub page. We have compiled each and every information about the game there. Below you will find the entire list of exciting new features that PS4 owners can look forward to.

  • In concept since 2005
  • Trailer graphics are what you can expect it to look like in-game
  • Everything in the world is rendered with soft body physics
  • Metal beams react for example to magnetic forces, bending and shifting in real time
  • Incredible attention to detail: Lens flare catches light as you rotate the camera, oil lamps flash independently in an underground scene, light bouncing off every object provides uncanny realism, insane attention to material detail like wood, leather and cloth.
  • Clouds and particles of dust float around lamp flames, subtely settling down on the camera lense
  • Ready at Dawn spent a lot of time making the weapons unique, giving each personality. Grounded in understandable science but also have behaviors that you wouldn’t expect
  • Examples of guns: Arc Gun like you saw in the trailer, Combo Gun has two different settings, you can blow enemies back with a non-lethal charge to make space as well as using standard rifle fire, Thermite Rifle can shoot a chemical onto enemies, using secondary fire to shoot flares to light them on fire, frag grenades can be used typically or hoisted onto the environment via spikes
  • Around 7th or 8th century, humanity splinters, with many getting ‘beastial traits’, becoming ‘half breeds’
  • Thus begins the conflict
  • Humanity basically forms a version of the Knights of the Round Table, in this case, The Order to fight off this enemy
  • Through a strange turn of events, they discover a substance called “black water”, giving them unusually long lives and unique ability to recover from injury
  • The Knights continue to age, but at a much, much slower rate which they use to battle for centuries
  • It’s basically a curse given they continuously see everything around them leave and die off, it’s both a salvation and a curse for them
  • This leads up to the 19th century and the changes facilitate the unique futuristic Industrial Age you see before you
  • You play as Grayson, known as “Sir Galahad” (guy with the porn stache)
  • A new threat emerges as parts of society (humans) begin to rebel against the rulership and are disgruntled with the inequality between layers of society
  • Battle scenes are chaotic and exciting, with use of cover, somewhat similar to of Gears of War
  • “While the focus is on third-person gunplay combat, The Order sometimes pulls back for slower paced moments of investigation and exploration.”
  • Ready at Dawn took a unique twist to QTEs, sometimes melee attacks occur during gameplay, time slows down and you can rotate your camera and find different things in the environment to give you an edge. These can range from dodging a punch or grabbing an improvised weapon for example
  • Focused on a very strong story driven single player now, not willing to talk about any multiplayer
  • Interactive cutscenes keep players in control of part of the action (like shooting) while a preset dramatic moment plays out.

Excited? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

    LMAO another Playstation movie confirmed QTE galore!

    • DarthDiggler


      You haven’t seen any implementation of QTEs into the game, but somehow you have seemingly secret knowledge of their prevalence in the title. If you bothered to actually read and comprehend the article describes a form of QTEs that do not sound typical at all.

      Don’t be so partisan.

    Not going to lie. I kind of wish I was getting this on the Xbox One since I’m getting that first. Its the only exclusive PS4 title I’m really intrigued by. Oh well. maybe I’ll pick up a PS4 after the holidays.

    • DarthDiggler


      Not the biggest Xbox fan but MS really gave me little or no reason to defect from the PS brand. The PS4 is going to be great for gamers and great for developers. Not saying the XBONE won’t come close but the specs an simplicity really gives Sony the edge. Most of the games I want to play at launch are Multiplatform titles, but given that Day One on PS4 I will have 5 extra games to play for free (with a $100 more in my pocket), I can’t see why anyone would buy XBONE at launch, unless you just itching to play a God of War clone. 🙂

      Titanfall is another story but that will not make it for XBONE launch, it’s all but confirmed that Sony will see Titanfall on PS4 as well. No way Respawn would risk leaving money like that on the table.

      I hear you on your reasons for not wanting to buy an Xbox One at launch, but to me it has the most potential of the next generation consoles. I’ll tell you why I want one at launch and it probably won’t matter to most people for the launch, but it does to me.

      I have a family who is spread across the world. We use Skype to communicate and while I was hoping Skype would come to the Xbox 360’s Kinect, i understand why it didn’t. Everyone in my family is getting an Xbox One so we can talk frequently to each other in the livingroom where it is just much easier to communicate. MS said that group Skype was going to be available at launch for up to 25 participants which will work out for us. My wife exercises alot and wants to do it with her sister and nieces, so they are looking at Zumba fitness and even the P90 programs which will cost a lot less and they plan on Skyping to each other while they work out for motivation. I know of people who go to the same gym and are talking about doing the same thing with the convenience of doing it at home. They’ll just unroll their mats in the living room and work out.

      We are cable subscribers through Comcast and personally I like what MS is doing with the TV integration. It has tons of potential there for interactive live content, but again we may Skype with friends and family and just watch TV together. I did watch the Halo world championships a few weeks ago and have even watched the presidential debates and thought that this capability to take polled questions, respond, and see instant results was really powerful and compelling.

      Games… yes all of what I said had little to do with games, but I like the Forza series, Rise looks mildly interesting, and while I’m not a Dead Rising fan, I think I will get it. I was a big Killer Instinct player when it first came out so that’s on my list as well. To be honest, yeah its a light launch with nothing spectacular, but to me over the years it has much greater potential than the PS4 simply because it has more usability for the entire family in my household and not just the gamers. I may get a PS4, but to me other than a few of the games, there’s just nothing interesting about it and is a modest upgrade over the PS3.

    @Obambush:disqus…….I bet MS is now wishing they had not passed on Heavy Rain. Also what you say is laughable due to the fact that Ryse: Son of Rome is a QTE fest and crappy rip off of the God of War games’ gameplay.

  • dave

    Wow, this game has the best graphics ever on any platform (including PC). GameInformer never lie, and they state The Order: 1886 has “the most stunning in-game visuals we’ve ever seen”!!!!!!!!!!

    Guess the PS4 is much more powerful than we ever thought.

    • guest

      Yeah, I could not beleive it but the trailer uses in game engine, f*cking amazing. I want a PS4 so bad.
