This is what they should have showcased last year.
The Order: 1886 has been receiving a lot of negative press lately, which to an extent is justified. Sony and Ready At Dawn haven’t shown much of the game, except a few visually appealing but bland demonstrations. To top that, Sony’s marketing of the game is somewhat questionable. The game is less than a month away from launch and there is no justified hype surrounding the game.
However, during the on going Taipei Games show in Taiwan, Read At Dawn showcased a new demo that showcased for the first time, wide open levels. Now ‘this’ is something that they should have showcased long ago but they didn’t for some reason. Check out the screenshot below and it reminds us of the early concept art that was released when the game was first showing during E3 2013. If The Order: 1886 has more of these open level sections, that Ready at Dawn and The Order: 1886 have my attention. Let us hope the gameplay delivers at launch, since it does look to be a visually impressive masterpiece.

In related news, PlayStation Europe tweeted this amazing poster asking players to be beware of Lycans. As you can see it has that late 1800’s vibe and feel to it and it matches the theme of the game pretty well.
Bonus: In a recent trailer for The Order: 1886, we saw several weapons in action such as M2 “Falchion” auto-rifle, Three Crown and C-81 MaschinenPistole. However, it seems that Ready At Dawn Studios might have showed off a new weapon as well. Check out the GIF below, when Galahad goes through the tunnel. (GIF via NeoGaf user)
