Ready At Dawn Defends QTEs In The Order 1886, Won’t Go ‘Crazy’ By Including It Every 3-4 Minutes

There will be many QTEs but they will be compelling, says Ready At Dawn’s Marc Turndorf.

The Order 1886

The Order 1886 is perhaps the closest thing we have seen to CG graphics in real time in a video game. There is no doubt that the title sets a new benchmark in video game graphics but there is a genuine concern regarding some of its gameplay mechanics. One of them being the quick time events. Generally speaking, most of the gaming community find QTEs to be bland and a unnecessary addition to enhance gameplay.

GamingBolt raised the same question to Ready At Dawn’s Marc Turndorf and whether players will come across QTEs more often.

“I don’t have a specific answer to that, but once every 3-4 minutes?…No! As much as necessary,” assures Turndorf . ” There are many kinds of QTEs. There are really compelling ones at the end of a boss battle or just a melee encounter which makes it more gratifying and gives it some branches which are really fun.”

“Then there are some little things like opening a door and things like that. There are plenty in the game, as many as necessary but we don’t go crazy like “Oh! It’s been 4 minutes, we don’t have a QTE, we need a QTE, ahh! What are we gonna do?!” It’s not like that. We tried to place them in compelling manners that users can really enjoy,” he said to GamingBolt.

As I mentioned before, we are big fans of the technical achievements of the game but we are still slightly on the fence about its gameplay. Given that there are several months remaining before its launch next February, we hope that the developers will have a surpise or two up their sleeves.

    The gameplay simply looks pathetic for a next gen game.
    That and no multiplayer whatsoever and the BS graphics excuse make it a worhtless title.

    • DarthDiggler

      That opinion is surprising coming from a coward who won’t take credit for it.

      Care to add something useful to the conversation or you always a Negative Nancy Boy?

      The Order will be a good and fun third person shooter with gameplay
      variety and a strong story. It will review and sell well. You should
      give the game a chance or wait for more details before condemning it.

      They JUST SAID there WON’T be many QTEs in the game. This is in contrast to Ryse WHICH IS ONE GIANT NEAR-CONSTANT STRING OF QTES. This is GOOD NEWS.

      It’s clear deranged microsoft fanboy shills have invaded this article to spread lies and hatred.

  • Quetzalcoatl9999

    Gonna get this when it’s cheap, it doesn’t seem to be a first day purchase.

    • Chuck Green

      I don’t think it will take long for this game to hit the bargain bin.

    • ProAssassin84

      Honestly every game now a days hits bargain bin pretty fast do to all the COD wolf hair cut pot heads ruining the gaming community.

      What’s a wolf haircut?

      The Order will be a good and fun third person shooter with gameplay variety and a strong story. It will review and sell well. You should give the game a chance or wait for more footage before condemning it.

    • DarthDiggler

      LOL Yeah we have seen SO much of the game that we can deem it a bargain bin purchase now. LOL I think we have plenty of time to make a decision on this.

      You can put the shovels away a funeral for Ready At Dawn is grossly premature.

    the damn “CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE” is one of the main reason of Killing the HardCore Gaming

    • DarthDiggler

      How does giving a game some aspects of a summer blockbuster movie killing the game? If its a good game to begin with the cinematic aspects only add to the experience.

    • DLConspiracy//

      Its what happens when these consoles can’t hit 1080p constantly (both) then they shoot for res/graphics instead of gameplay. Then in the end gimp the PC version (not the Order obviously).

    • Not_true

      Exclusively 1080p 60 FPS games on PS4: MGS V, CoD Ghosts, FFXIV, Tomb Raider, MLB The Show 14, Resogun, Trials Fusion, Diablo 3, Project Cars, Metro Redux, more.

      The Order will be a good and fun third person shooter with gameplay variety and a strong story. It will review and sell well.

    • DLConspiracy//

      Not quite sure I follow. I wasnt attempting to condemn the game.

    • ProAssassin84

      define hardcore gaming.LMFAO. People like you are destroying gaming because you think COD and BF are hardcore experiences so we get sequel after sequel.

    Can’t wait to see the Ryse QTE haters enjoy these QTE’s. :D

    • DarthDiggler

      @midnighter20c:disqus

      Its not the QTE’s themselves it’s how they are done. Heavy Rain had heavy QTEs but they made it directly apart of the gameplay and expanded it’s narrative manner.

      I never played Ryse, but I heard rumors prior to release that suggested it wasn’t AAA caliber.

    • Not_true

      They JUST SAID there WON’T be many QTEs in the game. This is in contrast to Ryse WHICH IS ONE GIANT NEAR-CONSTANT STRING OF QTES.

      This is GOOD NEWS yet evil, malicious, lying microsoft shills have swarmed into this article to spread lies and hatred as usual.

    • Rooster41

      The developers said that there would be QTE every 3-4 minutes that’s almost on par with RYSE but it’s ok cause it’s a PS4 game right right?

    • Not_true

      He said “Once every 3-4 minutes? No.”

      Did you not see the “NO”?? He said QTEs were ***NOT*** going to be every 3-4 minutes.

      Furthermore Ryse has QTEs far more often than 3-4 minutes, they pop up every single time you get to execute an enemy and more.

      You fail at reading comprehension, fail at facts, and fail at being a rotten fanboy.

    • Havok

      I think you misunderstood what he said. Here’s what he said, in regards to how many QTE’s will be in the game, “I don’t have a specific answer to that, but once every 3-4 minutes?…No!”

      I’m not, like most gamers, a fan of QTE’s, but many games have them to some degree. It’s just the degree that I care about. I didn’t end up buying Ryse just for that fact even though it looked like an amazing game. It just gets far too repetitive using them.

  • PC_Is_The_Master_Race

    They are downgrading the QTE’s now. How apt.

    • DarthDiggler

      How are the “downgrading” anything? Just saying something doesn’t make it true. PC is the Master Race for MS Office.

    • ProAssassin84

      Why do you care you will never see or play this game and many many others do to you having a niche PC and no games to play.

    • Not_true

      Can the moderators please ban this mustard peasant troll again. It’s been banned multiple times on dualshockers, gamingbolt, cinemablend, onlysp, gamepur, and pretty much everywhere on disqus. All it does is spread lies, ignorance, and hate about consoles and PS4 especially.

      The Order graphics have not been downgraded from earlier in game footage.

  • EmpeRawD

    Let the Sony Pony hypocrisy continue

    • Not_true

      They JUST SAID there WON’T be many QTEs in the game. This is in contrast to Ryse WHICH IS ONE GIANT NEAR-CONSTANT STRING OF QTES. This is GOOD NEWS.

      Nobody is a hypocrite for calling out Ryse for being a massive string of QTEs and praising The Order devs for saying they’ll make QTEs infrequent.

      The Order will be a good and fun third person shooter with gameplay variety and a strong story. It will review and sell well. You should give the game a chance or wait for more details before condemning it.

    • EmpeRawD

      The point is that Sony clowns such as yourself condemn any type of gameplay, graphics, resolution ect. ect. not on a Sony console. QTE’s are considered boring gameplay until they show up on a Sony game. 900p is not next-gen, until it shows up on a Sony game. The list goes on and on. And there is a huge difference between mandatory QTE’s and non mandatory QTE’s.

      Couple questions……how many accounts do you actually have? Are you on Sony’s payroll? Do you actually play games? Your history says no!

      Happy Grazing little Sony Pony

    • Not_true

      Xbox One has some good exclusive games. You are wrong, ignorant, lying, hateful, and evil.

      Exclusively 1080p 60 FPS games on PS4: MGS V, CoD Ghosts, FFXIV, Tomb Raider, MLB The Show 14, Resogun, Trials Fusion, Diablo 3, Project Cars, Metro Redux, more. PS4 is more powerful, that has always been the point.

      You are pure evil and full of hatred and lies.

    • EmpeRawD

      You have no life! Your goal in life is to defend a piece of plastic to the very end!

      Happy Grazing little pony : )

    • Not_true

      Another typical dumb, delusional, malicious, constantly wrong microsoft fanboy flinging feces and screaming like an imbecile.

      You are massively stupid and hateful yet delusional, hypocritical, and constantly wrong.

      You are pure evil and full of hatred and lies.

    • EmpeRawD

      You’re the one in caps genius. And there goes the typical copy and paste strategy that you use when you’re losing an argument.

      Happy Grazing little pony. : )

    • Not_true

      Evil, ignorant, full of hatred and lies.

      You are pure evil.

    • EmpeRawD

      Loser!

      I would also like to point out how my original comment, only made mention of hypocrisy and you immediately brought up QTE’S.

      Happy Grazing little pony : )

    • PC_Is_The_Master_Race

      COD, FFXIV, Tomb Raider, Trials Fusion, Diablo 3, Project Cars and Metro Redux are 1080P 60FPS on PC.

      Tomb Raider should be advertised as “Sometimes hits 60FPS” since the frame rate is usually around 40-50FPS anyway.

  • Tom Krager

    So this is another game I’m not going to be playing then . . . Job well done guys.

    Opening a door, finishing a boss fight, and taking a sippy.
    Can’t think of anything more compelling than that.

    • Bobbbbby5

      You’re making an awful lot of presumptions there (including a very predictable “you don’t like X so you must be a shill for Y!”)*
      My comment and opinion are completely valid because it’s based on all that I’ve seen and read. It’s liable to change, just as yours is. Except, seeing as how you keep spewing that copypasta, maybe not.

      *For the record, the XB1 is the least likely console I’ll be owning this gen.

    • Not_true

      You upvoted obvious fanboy hate comments in this article.

    • EmpeRawD

      And you have been known to up vote your own comments! You also are in great need of an actual life. I predict 5000+ comments by the end of this Summer…..ban hammer or not.

    • Not_true

      You are lying, evil, and wrong.

    • Bobbbbby5

      Yeah, that’s a little something I do because I get a slight kick out of seeing how far PS fanboys will obsess over numbers.

      I like the Playstation brand, just not the following.

  • Psionicinversion

    its a day 1 for me…. commenting day 1 to say how $h1t it is and laughing at the peasants

    • Not_true

      God gamers have both a great PC and consoles, and find ignorant mustards screaming their lies and hatred disgraceful.

  • d0x360

    This game looks absolutely stunning. Unfortunately is also looks like it has the most generic boring gameplay of any AAA release in the last 10 years. Cover shooting and qte…yay.

    • ProAssassin84

      Last of Us had cover shooting and it was a masterpiece. Enough said. That is like saying this game has guns gonna be boring. LOL

    • d0x360

      The last of us was a masterpiece because of its incredible story telling. The actual gameplay? That was also very generic and boring. Over simplified stealth gameplay with unsatisfying shooting. Oh my epic.

    • Not_true

      The Order devs have already stated there will be a strong emphasis on story.

      TLOU gameplay is considered great on the highest difficulty mode, where all tools must be used to survive.

    • Not_true

      The Order will be a good and fun third person shooter with gameplay variety and a strong story. It will review and sell well. You should give the game a chance or wait for more details before condemning it.

      “Cover shooters” are among some of the highest rated games in the history of games.

  • ProAssassin84

    All the hate. People has only seen maybe 5 minutes of the entire game. Uncharted 1-3, Last of Us was cinematic experiences and they one all Game of the Year awards and are critically acclaimed. I since lots of jealous PC sim players and XB540P comments on here LOL. This game will be a masterpiece wait and see. If it is not I will gladly come apologize to all of you.

    People seem to forget how talented Ready at Dawn is as well as a endless budget being a Sony only developer.

  • Rooster41

    I don’t know if PlayStation fanboys can read but the article clearly states that there will be QTE every 3-4 minutes of gameplay but the fanboys are saying that it’s not really that much QTE, are you guys kidding me

    • Not_true

      He said “Once every 3-4 minutes? No.”

      Did you not see the “NO”?? He said QTEs were ***NOT*** going to be every 3-4 minutes.

      You fail at reading comprehension, fail at facts, and fail at being a rotten fanboy.

    • Duke

      Awkward moment when you read it wrong and everyone else reads it right.

  • Cassive

    I don’t love QTEs, I don’t hate it either, if it’s implemented correctly

  • Failz

    QTE lol No thanks. Bring me real games. What are PS4 owners going to do after they finish the campaign full of QTEs? Where’s the MP? At least Ryse had a MP.
