This game has the chance to be truly amazing.
ZodTheRipper  +   271d ago
Amazing isn't enough to describe the potential it has :D
It inly needs the right execution.
Blackdeath_663  +   271d ago
its looking great so far i just hope it has depth to it as in not just a 10 hour gameplay session and thats it.

will be one of the best games of 2014, ready at dawn are very underrated and only 50 or so people in the whole development team, it wouldn't surprise me if that number grows after this game for their next blockbuster
GribbleGrunger  +   270d ago
It's clear they're going to try and ground the mythos of this game so I'm more likely to believe the creatures will be things were familiar with but not exactly the same. Werewolves are an obvious choice, but they're likely to be similar beasts that history (in relation to The Order) have misinterpreted as man becoming wolf. Vampires also seem a possible choice, but once again they won't be as we know them, they'll be mutations that enjoy human blood, not immortals that have lived for centuries. Expect all the London myths to be reinterpreted for this game. Jekyll and Hyde and jack the Ripper to name but two.

As far as plot goes there's some pointers in this if you read between the lines and bare in mind that all great story telling doesn't 'tell' it 'shows'. We see that when one knight dies they are immediately replaced with another. Expect a major character to die in the first three hours of this game! we see that mutation is rife which means no one is exempt from it's effects. Expect at least one of the member of The Order to have a hidden secret!

I predict by 2015 Ready At Dawn will be part of Sony.

Looks impressive so far.

The background reminds me of Metro.
Callediceman  +   271d ago
Back story seems pretty interesting. Looking forward to seeing/hearing more
nategrigs  +   271d ago
sounds like it could be interesting.......now lets see some gameplay
dboyc310  +   271d ago
Wonder what other mutants we'll fight against. Ware wolves for sure. Would be cool to see some monsters from the Van Helsing story. The setting and time period is what interest me the most. Really is setting up for an immerse experience.

Bet you a nickel that we'll see at least one dragon.
nategrigs  +   271d ago
It actually reminds me a lot of the xmen. Maybe the mutants aren't inherently aggressive/evil, but have been forced to conflict with "normal" humans after centuries of oppression. I hope SSM doesn't just make them mindless beasts.

Also, there has been talk about a big focus on the melee combat in this......it would be cool if you could play as a beast (warewolf) at some point.
dboyc310  +   271d ago
I wouldn't say mindless beasts but I'm pretty sure if a half-breed were to just change into lets say a ware wolf the aggressive behavior would follow. I agree with you on how it's similar to the whole x-men battle of Human vs Mutants
Tontus  +   271d ago
This isn't SSM's game they just share technological expertise with RaD, why would they make them mindless beasts? This is a completely different kind of game so I'm sure the enemies will behave differently to GoW.

Also since when were beasts mindful? If the beasts still retain some humanity that could be interesting but straight up beasts should behave in a more feral and mindless manner.
sigfredod  +   271d ago
Vampires for sure, maybe some gryphons, trolls?
stuntman_mike  +   271d ago
how about a jeykll and hyde like in extrordinary league of gentlemen. fighting him on the rooftops.
Angeljuice  +   270d ago
What beast do you mix with human genetics to get a vampire? What beast would you add to create a troll? (maybe we should ask Belking).
Griffins are half lion, half eagle (no part human) so its a bit of a stretch to be able to include them also.
I'm expecting a whole new series of previously unseen monsters, apart from the obvious inclusion of werewolves.

cannot wait to see some gameplay, the tech head in me will squeal like a little schoolgirl, and the gamer in me will also squeal like a little school girl

"In the London of 19th Century the conflict between mankind and the half-breed continued, even in the terrible district of Whitechapel, one of the many districts that will be remembered by the posterity. This area has become a major turning point in the battle over the years.
The development of science and the industrial revolution has become a mighty assets for the human race.
Enormous airships patrol the sky of london, and at times they are at anchor at enormous mooring towers to monitor the city center. The railway powered by electricity has become the blood flow of the city, connecting each district. With their technology humanity has the advantage over the half-breed for the first time."

These kind of story's are always interesting. The human rebellion Vs half breed or monsters. The struggle, pain animosity each side is experiencing.

Very interesting story arch so far.
Trust me this game is going to be the first real next gen game changer these guys aren't messing around there ready to knock down doors and blow minds!!! Boom...
KingofGambling  +   271d ago
I agree with that this game is going to be a real next gen, but the first game going to be real next gen is Infamous SS.

Imagine if Sony released a trailer on Christmas...I would die XD I think (and hope) that we'll see some gameplay in January.
CalebZachary8411  +   271d ago
Probably my most sought after game right with the division.
Mr Lahey  +   271d ago
Ok, I know i'm a bit baked, but this has to be the most awesome story and setting EVER!! Seriously! Half-breed mutant monsters, knights, 19th Century Whitechapel district, Enormous airships, politics!

I'm so hyped right now!
nategrigs  +   271d ago
Haha. I dont think that ive ever seen politics followed by an !
DigitalRaptor  +   271d ago
That potential, right there.

I'm also hyped, but when they show the gameplay.... holy sheet!
Sharius  +   271d ago
never forget.... streampunk!!!
HammerKong  +   271d ago
yeah you are right they have a realy amazing theme and the trailer shows they have executed well atleast the art style and feel to the ,fell to the city with amazing artstyle and mysterious looking envioronment exits me very much ,these people have get a great idea with amazing sounding story and so far it sounds more interesting than any new ip ,quantum break is also having amazing story arc and plot and having amazing art style but this sounds more interesting but they now needs to show the gameplay and this behavour from them making me nervous because its their first home console game and we dont know any thing about them and i'am pretty sure remedy will apply their best work to quantum break and it will be amazing ,on both conoles oder is my most anticipated ps4 game and quantum break is my most anticipated xb1 game and both have not shown their gameplay but have released amazing looking trailers ,i hope this stand on expectations and create a franchise which can become face of ps4 with a great rich universe like the halo which is to xb.
Letthewookiewin  +   271d ago
I can't wait for 2014. I really should enjoy the present but I can't with such a great PS4 library looming in 2014.
BabyTownFrolics  +   271d ago
I purchased both consoles. A friend asked me why. I said I purchased the xbox1 to play with you and I purchased the ps4 for the amazing exclusives. Games like this are what I game for. New experiences that take place in richly detailed and imagined worlds.
HammerKong  +   271d ago
this looks amazing and will be amazing but xb1 is also having great exclusives like quantum break ,halo,titanfall,fables and many unannouced exclusives ,you are gona play amazing exclusives from both sides and Microsoft is now 24 1st party studios which means more exclusives,gaming is gona be more amazing and i'am too having both consoles.
HighResHero  +   271d ago

ltachiUchiha  +   271d ago
Im really hyped for this game but they need to stop teasing us & show us sum gameplay already. I really hope this comes out 2014.

tigertron  +   271d ago
I need to see some gameplay! PLEEEAAAASSEEE!!!! I'M DYING HERE!!!!
ATi_Elite  +   270d ago
I agree!

SO much HYPE about the Story and the Graphics but the MOST important element has been left out.

No Gameplay Video.

Me personally I'm starting to think it's more of a story that stops every now and then and lets you slightly control the characters but not fully moving them around.

I mean hell all this time and No Gameplay video is kind of a bad sign.

Hopefully I'm Wrong!

Funny because reviewers make it seem like the ps4 has no games lol. Smh. Thanx for that image.
Inception  +   271d ago
From the background story, it sounds like they're planning this to have a sequel...if not a trilogy.
DigitalRaptor  +   271d ago
Need to see what they're forging with 1886 first, but I think it could make a great series, just like Assassin's Creed.

They could potentially do any time period they wanted if turning out sequels and it would be awesome, as it's still the same underground group of people trying to relinquish evil at a key moment in history.

Inception  +   271d ago
From the looks of it, yeah it could be as big as AC. New protagonist, new timeline, and according to the background story even the enemies not just the mutant but also with humans and technology too. Ready At Dawn & SSM really have good material in their hands to create a couple of sequel if they done it right.
italiangamer  +   271d ago
It was already confirmed that The Order will be a series, they're even planning something for the TV. Knowing that will be a series, it brings hope to see Ready at Dawn become a Sony first party :) Here's the link with the news:


It's in italian so please use Google Translate :P

Wow that's new to me. Grazie mate and bubs+ ^^
