The Order: 1886 Engine Targeted PS4 And PC Specifically Because Of Performance

Manually added light sources helped with shading.

the order 1886 ps4

We’ve already talked about how just how pretty The Order: 1886 is on the PS4, while the game lacked quite a bit when it came to the story that went along with the game, the graphics were among some of the best of the current generation of consoles. During Ready at Dawn’s Siggraph 2015 presentation the company touched on a number of techniques it used to bring the pretty including using an in house engine specifically geared this time towards putting out a game that would only be able to run on the PS4 and a PC.

The developer used this engine to put together their real time lighting solution, among other things. The fact that during cutscenes, there wasn’t any way to change where the camera pointed was certainly helpful when adding various dynamic light sources in order to add to the shading of the scene and therefore making it look more realistic. The company says that the light sources were actually all added manually, depending on where the developer thought it would make the scene look the best.

The company also released a couple of screenshots (which you can see below) showing the game running on a PC at 60fps. Ready at Dawn says that the target platform for the game was always going to be either PC or PS4 though their engine can be adjusted to be on just about any console if the tweaks are done right. The company had previously said and reiterated that the way they put the Order: 1886 together would have made it impossible to be hosted on another console.

Thanks, GearNuke.

    LOL, they still pushing this epic fail of a game that even had downgrade from the first e3 showing?

    • justerthought

      There is no denying the superb quality of the graphics in this game even if it has had a downgrade, but the game just fails due to lack of content and poor value for money. It’s far too short. Not worth the money.

    • SpaceJockey

      Well even this is better than anything that Xbox has.. Jesus Xbox doesn’t even have a game that looks as good as uncharted 3 on the PS3.. Not to mention every 3rd party title playing better in ps4 in the first place.. Tbh I don’t think you could do anything to save the Xbox brand at this point.. Never mind though you’re always welcome on our console

    • Rodney Patrick

      Whatever you say xbotmk1

    • *Also On PC

      Every 3rd party title plays better on PC. And PC Games don’t get downgraded like Uncharted 3. I don’t think you could do anything to save the Playstation brand either.

      They are more than welcome to join the PC Master Race though :^)

    • SpaceJockey

      Haha consoles rule your life PC boy. You think about them all day talk about them all day long.. PC must be a disaster hahs

    • *Also On PC

      PC is anything but a disaster. Consoles are hilariously awful.

      You must be really upset to watch the game you claimed could only run on PS4 run at twice the framerate and without the black bars on PC :^)

    • SpaceJockey

      Yeah pc is so good that you literally have nothing better to do than talk about consoles all day..
      No one even cares about PC. what are you even doing here, both you and PC are redundant 🙂 PC has no good exclusives anyway but we’ve already established that havnt we.
      Next you’ll fall back into your old easy of finishing every sentence with the word shill.. Haha hey you enjoy your mobile/Facebook games though kid. You’ve worked for them 😉

    • *Also On PC

      PC has more and better exclusives than POS4 this year. And next year. And the year after that :^)

    • SpaceJockey

      Bahaha that my friend looks like a bargain bin haha
      Nice try though.. Funny.. So like I said ZERO good exclusives like we had already established:) on day you’ll have a console kid

    • SpaceJockey

      Ahh good so you agree that PC has nothing then.. Just a bunch of jumped up mobile games.. 😉 nice try.

    • *Also On PC

      Still in denial that PS4 has no games :^)

    • SpaceJockey

      Sure that’s what I said.. Hey, if I was poor I’d get a PC..

    • freekface

      You have changed your name “Xbotmk1” but you still talk complete crap so why change your name yet again?
      You are an obsessive fanboy.

    • SpaceJockey

This has been my name for over a year.. I only bought a ps4 this gen.. you must be new here because most of us know each other 😉 don’t show your self up 😉

    • 2econd gpu unlocking

      Quantum break said hello we hear.

    • SpaceJockey

      But but the 2nd gpu 🙁

    • 2econd gpu unlocking

      We haven’t asked for it to be unlocked yet.
      And could agree it’s best to it locked out all generation as we can do the 2nd GPU in a virtual space with DX12.
      We may ask for that in 2018 or early 2019.

    • SpaceJockey

      Who’s the “we” you’re referring to hive mind? It’s even more funny when you realise you actually believe what you’re saying haha.. Jesus

    • 2econd gpu unlocking

      Ryse also spoke about graphic awards 🙂

    • SpaceJockey

      Lol ryse

  • d0x360

    I see I see but on ps4 they removed 33%/of the screen with bars so they didn’t have to render those pixels but still call it 1080p… Just like evil within

    • justerthought

      Yes that is a con, but the XB1 version would need to remove 50% of the screen with thicker black bars in order to make it run.

    • d0x360

      Why are you bringing Xbox into this… This has nothing to do with Xbox. Nothing.

      I can tell you one thing. it was an Xbox game it would have been fun. Thanks Phil Spencer.

    • SpaceJockey

      Lol fun Phil spencer! Cheers for the laugh! XD. You know that it still renders behind the black bars don’t you?
      Just like until dawn.
      Hey they could have done that rediculous compressed 1080 that MS is trying to fob you off with ;).

    • Rodney Patrick

      You sound stupid, do us all a favor and stfu

    • SpaceJockey

      You’re a little stupid aren’t you. Problems reading English? Idiot.. I’d go into hiding if I’d just said that.. Do you understand. That I don’t even own an Xboxone? Probably not jungle joe.

    • freekface

      900P at 30FPS is terrible for this sort of game.
      The PS4 is just weak, as are it’s few games and it’s abysmal online speed.

      Stop being a blind fanboy and wake up.

    • SpaceJockey

      So you hate ps4? Who cares

    • *Also On PC

      The console peasant black bar excuse when the video of the PC version has a completely black bar free picture and 60FPS

      Hilarious. Make more excuses for your Peasantstation poor lack of performance and I’ll keep laughing

      Weren’t you idiots shilling that it could “Never” be done on PC a few months back? Yet here it is on PC, no black borders and 60FPS :^)

    • d0x360

      No it doesnt render behind the bars.  Go ahead and post on their forum’s.  I’ll wait for a linkm. Evil within only renders without the bars on PC if you force it to
      KthnxBye

    • SpaceJockey

      So if a tree falls in the woods and nobody is around to hear it fall it doesn’t make a noise? Ahaha of course it’s rendering behind the bars.. Unless it’s rendering the bars too.. Think about it.. Sure you can force remove the bars on PC,

    • Orion Wolf

      “30fps was for the filmick look” yep I can clearly see that now.

  • Rodney Patrick

    Xbotmk1 come,come wherever you are

  • justerthought

    The article inferred a contradiction in the last sentence when the dev claimed it would be “impossible to be hosted on another console.” There is no contradiction. They claim it can run on other platforms “if the tweaks are done right.”

    By reference to tweaks, they mean reducing the quality via optimisation to run on the inferior XB1 hardware. But to run the same quality as PS4 remains impossible. No contradiction.

    • GHz

      Stop adding nonsense and passing it off as real information. Stick to what the developers said and stop with the the stupid armchair developer comments. It’s old and we all know that garbage you speak are all lies.

      According to Sams, Ready at Dawn’s engine and tech is fully multiplatform, and can do what the studio has done with The Order: 1886 on Xbox One and PC. http://www.gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2015/06/08/the-order-1886-developer-ready-at-dawn-expanding-in-new-directions.aspx

      See how easy it is to find the truth? And its much more beneficial too for all gamers.

    • Orion Wolf

      “What we did on the PS4 for The Order: 1886, we can also do today on Xbox One, PC, and on an additional unannounced platform.”

      I presume he’s referring to the NX.

    • *Also On PC

      It was Oculus Rift. Not NX. Though Square let the cat out of the bag that NX was Unreal Engine 4 capable, early. So they could add NX.

      At least NX is something to look forward to. Unlike the nogameststation 4.

    • Orion Wolf

      Wouldn’t the Rift be part of the PC platform?

    • *Also On PC

      Oculus are hiring studios as part of their “Platform” like Insomniac and RAD was on their developer list as making an OR game. Developers and OR consider it a “Platform” in of itself though it requires a PC.

      Nintendo didn’t want developers confirming anything for NX or even hinting at it which is why Square had to backpedal so quick on the Dragon Quest XI announcement.

    • Orion Wolf

      Hopefully the Rift does prove to be more than just a trend.

      Anyway, appreciate the info.

  • *Also On PC

    What was that about “PC never being able to run The Order” again? Oh and here it is. Running without the black borders, at full 1080P, at 60FPS on the PC.

    John Derp? Where are you. You have some explaining to do :^)
