The Order: 1886 Won't Bore You With 45 Minutes of Shooting

If you hate those endless sections of shooting that litter first & third person shooters, rejoice: The Order 1886 will be more varied, according to Ready at Dawn's Ru Weerasuriya.

Will be one of the best games.
Mark my words...

Alexious1594d ago

I hope so, I like the setting a lot.

mewhy321594d ago

this looks really intersting. I hope that it isn't a Gears clone just in a different setting.

cleft51594d ago

I am glad to hear that because while I loved Bioshock, I loved the world and the exploration and characters. The shooting was solid, but I could have done without the game turning in shooting level after shooting level. The world was done so well I wanted to explore it and learn more about it. Instead it was here is the world, character, and story for 5 minutes. Now go and kill people for 30 minutes.

The game was very well done, but I expected more than just a shooter with a great story. I am not complaining about the shooting parts because it was fun, but that game could have been so much more.

pyramidshead1594d ago

Ditto, love period type games. Especially when devs can recreate the world as we only know it through books and articles, pictures and art and create an atmospheric game world.

Seems sorta horror-ish too, and I love me some horror games, especially with combat.

Seen a lot of hate for it being linear and stuff but we still don't know HOW linear. But some of my fav games I've played have been pretty linear. Open world & all the jazz that comes with it does not always equal a decent game.

DOMination-1594d ago

Cool. Uncharted was guilty of this as well as bioshock.

AsimLeonheart1594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

I agree. As much as I like and appreciate games like Uncharted and the new Tomb Raider, I really got tired of all those infinite bad guys. How many henchmen can thugs like Eddy, Salim, Talbot and an island cult possibly have!? It got really boring and frustrating because of hours of shooting at a time.

I hope so. I want this to be the game that makes me get a PS4.

Veneno1594d ago

The thing I'm hoping for most is an excellent, Naughty Dog quality storyline.

If I knew that Sucker Punch was capable of an excellent story, I'd be more excited about Second Son, but, I know the gameplay will be fantastic because playing Infamous is like crack. you want more and more.

WeAreLegion1594d ago

You don't think inFamous 1/2 had an excellent story? I loved that story!

360ICE1594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

I agree with WeAreLegion.
Sucker Punch has proven their storytelling capabilities with Sly and inFamous just as much as Naughty Dog has with Jak & Daxter and Uncharted, if not more.
Of course, The Last of Us is in a different league.

ColeMacGrath1594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

"If I knew that Sucker Punch was capable of an excellent story, I'd be more excited about Second Son"

Stopped reading there.

Veneno1594d ago

Infamous 1 had a good story because it had strong comic book sequences and kept reserved with the in-engine cut-scenes. The comic visuals were the identity of the inFamous story.

But then it took a turn for the Uncharted in inFamous 2 and became too dependent on the cut scenes. I just wish it could have stayed with its comic book roots because that's what tthey did best.


Yeah, The Last Of Us raised the bar on storytelling, but Sucker Punch was definetelly on the same level of Uncharted with InFamous... I would argue even a bit over it, but I love superhero stories and don't care so much about supernatural twists, so I'm probably a little biased there. Also, love the comic book style, here hoping they keep it.

Conzul1594d ago

Evil variation of infamous 2 was an excellent story. Cole actually became the beast he had been fighting for so long. Very tragic and well written. I was so surprised when I heard Nate Fox had based infamous 3 off of the good ending.

Don't get me wrong,I liked it, just thought the evil ending was better written.

ajkula1594d ago

Infamous didnt have the best grafix, but it's because everything else was so great!!!~

Sevir1594d ago

@Consul, the 3rd infamous was actually gonna be based off the Evil ending in Infamous 2, that was actually what was suppose to be canon to the series, but when the game shipped and trophy data started rolling in after people completed the game, they saw that the good ending was completed more, so they made a decision to use the good ending as canon

Tontus1594d ago

Naughty Dog haven't crafted a good story since the Jak and Daxter series.

What they do well is story-telling, a.k.a. the cinematography, character animation, amazing voice actors, great writing. The actual plot in all of the Uncharted games is absolute child-level rubbish. TLoU had a decent plot but it was very cliché.

I have faith that The Order 1886 will raise the bar for story-driven TPS games that TLoU set, it has a much more interesting premise, the weapons look very fun to use, the characters are mysterious & interesting, the visuals & animation are unbelievable... I just have a really good feeling about this game.

Razmossis1594d ago

Infamous has no story, it has a theme. Just finished infamous 2 today. I'm not even slightly interested in second son. However, I am massively interested in what naughty dog can do after The Last Of Us

I do not think that it is a clone.

Rimeskeem1594d ago

lets just hope it not another alien:colonial marines or something like that

P0werVR1594d ago

Lol! "One" of the best. The Best will be many titles and next year. Technological graphical leaps ahead of specs.

How can you know? Seriously, have you tried to game? Can you shed more light on the whole thing? Or are you just one of those who've jumped the hype train the moment they released the CGI trailer?

I like to be an optimist and get amped for a game but this is just... EDIT: Apparently someone posted couple of in-game screenshots bellow. Damn, it does look good.

MonChiChi1593d ago

Hope so. Love me some TPS

I will be testing the destruction in game. Bang bang

Alexious1594d ago

I don't think destruction will be a focus in this game. But, I expect it to be decent nonetheless.

isarai1593d ago

everything in the world is a softbody, which means destruction and interaction, so yeah i think its a focus

Destrania1594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

Could very well be possible. I have a lot of faith in this one for so many reasons.

TRD4L1fe1594d ago

That would be hard with Destiny, and The Division

kingrev1594d ago

If Destiny nails the online then they are some serious competition, I don't know how much The Devision is focusing on their story rather than their online component so we would have to wait and see but don't forget Titanfall either if that game is all what is being making out to be then it would be an interesting year to say the least.

Can't wait for 2014 !


I don't see either Destiny or Titalfall being that remarkable to be named GOTY. Not saying they won't be great games, I believe they will, but I don't see anything so unique or focus enough on the story to make it minimally worth the title for me (repeating: FOR ME)... But, hey, I would love to be wrong on this one, the more great games the better.

_QQ_1594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

and impossible with X ,Witcher 3 and MGSV

Imalwaysright1594d ago

With The Witcher 3, Dark Souls 2 and MGS Ground Zeroes coming next year? Doubt it.

Z_-_D_-_31594d ago

GZ is not GoTY material. It's essentially a demo.

Rainstorm811594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

I doubt Ground zeros will be GoTY....especially if it takes place entirely on that Military Phantom Pain on the other hand will be different story.

Right now my most anticipated games are Witcher 3 and Second Son

Imalwaysright1594d ago

Everything that Kojima makes is GOTY material.

mt1594d ago

we are not in 2014 yet it is game of the year ?? how is this possible ?

mt1594d ago

haha no you are not nostradamus you are his master.

_QQ_1594d ago

Its a Sony exclusive so obviously its GOTY without seeing any actual in game footage, just like Beyond 2 souls was apparently a GOTY contender before it came out.
That being said i'm always looking foward to a new game by a capable developer. but i'll hold my judgement untill i see it.

skydragoonity1594d ago

I am seriously anticipating this game..

Dark111594d ago

sounds too much like Uncharted.. Filmic, cinematic, script-driven third person shooter.

Next-Gen is here folks.

GarrusVakarian1594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

" Filmic, cinematic, script-driven third person shooter."

Which is a very good thing.

Lol @ disagrees.

Spurg1594d ago

Not for Next gen..... It needs to go with the trend of being more open like The division, The Witcher 3, Watch dogs, Destiny and if rumours are true Halo 5.
Early last gen games were had big environments but then as years past it somehow got smaller, you would think it would be get bigger.

Scipted diven sequences needs to stop unless they can find interesting ways to make it fresh for the player each time he plays that level.

Why not concentrate on A.I. Give me 45 mins of constant shooting...but give me the best A.I in gaming so it feels fresh everytime I play it.

GarrusVakarian1594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

"t needs to go with the trend of being more open like The division, The Witcher 3, Watch dogs, Destiny and if rumours are true Halo 5. "

Listen, im the biggest open world fan there is....but we still need script driven cinematic games too. When done right they are brilliant, as long as we don't get too many like we do with FPS games. Variety is good.

I_am_Batman1594d ago

@Spurg: It doesn't need to follow any trend. Every game designer should be free to make whatever type of game he wants. The diversity is what keeps me interessted in games.

ABizzel11594d ago


No it doesn't. If I want to play an open world or more "open" game then I'll go play those games. What The Order needs to do it make sure it does what The Order does best, and not worry about other games. No one likes a me too game when they can go play the original source material for the same price.

LOGICWINS1594d ago

The Witcher 3, Uncharted 4, The Order, Telltale: GoT, AC5. 2014 is the year of the cinematic third person game. Nextgen is here indeed and I'm VERY excited!

LOGICWINS1594d ago

I also forgot Tomb Raider. Damn, so many games to play :-)

Dark111594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

The Witcher has never been cinematic game
even witcher 3 is open world.

Rainstorm811594d ago

Tomb Raider....... Did you really say that?

better be 20-30$ tops....too early for Remakes/Remasters IMO

Twignberries1594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

So what exactly makes a next gen game to you @Dark11? Improving interactivity and immersion through cinematic quality sure does it for me. And oh wait... the fact that The Last of Us/Uncharted has had such universal critical acclaim for this exact reason means something. But hang on... you know better right?

Dark111594d ago

so you're saying because The Last of Us/Uncharted are good games .. every other game should be like that? lol .. how many cinematic game sony released? 7? 8?

oh well , i guess i'm the only one who want something new from next-gen.

Twignberries1594d ago

I think you're missing the point @Dark11.. You're making the cinematic quality of a game sound like it's a patented idea or some shit. It's the natural evolution of gaming. If you can't see that, then piss off to the video arcade and go play some rigid ass timewasters that haven't pushed the medium forward whatsoever. Inproving cinematic quality in gaming means the animators/artists are actually making an effort to improve things in gaming..

Dark111594d ago

lol you're the one that should piss off to watch a movie .. some of us here actually want to PLAY a game .. what a joke.

MestreRothN4G1594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

Twignberries, actually you're the one missing the point here.

You're like those people saying "CoD is RPG because, you know, you play a role, so it is a role-playing game, amirite?"

Saying the game is cinematic refers to how linear and canned it is, how little freedom you have to decide your paths, playstyles, make decisions, explore etc. It refers to linearity and how the game gets close to a interactive movie.

It has its ups and downs. Almost any dev agree that telling a cohesive and tight storytelling is close to impossible on open worlds, that linearity is the way to go to strongly telling a story. Also, it is the easiest way to create tight set pieces, memorable events, which is what some players want. Not to mention the reduced headache when you're doing the engine...

Obviously everyone wants better graphics and animations, but these refers to how cinematic games' graphics are, not the gameplay, which is how the term is commonly used and specifically here.

Also, bad language much?
