The Order: 1886 unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) skipped the Spike VGX Awards, and we were thus denied a new look at the game. Nonetheless, developer Ready At Dawn Studios has confirmed that the PS4 exclusive, which it is developing with some help from SCE Santa Monica, will exceed the initial E3 reveal trailer in graphical fidelity. This was stated by studio founder Andrea Pessino on Twitter:
@omek90 of course I am biased but yeah… graphic fidelity definitely exceeds the trailer. You'll see… 🙂

He also revealed that the cut-scenes in the game will be rendered in real-time on the PS4.

In development since 2010, the game is set during an alternate history timeline when King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table battle brutal half-bred enemies. As the timeline veers into post-Industrial Revolution London, the successors use tesla coils, zeppelins and other weapons to fight off the half-breds in a battle for survival.
The Order: 1886 hasn’t received a solid release date, though it is rumoured to be arriving in 2014, most likely by the third quarter of the year. What are your thoughts on the game’s looks thus far? Let us know in the comments below.
