The Order: 1886 is the closest thing we’ve seen to a proper PS4 must-have, but can a 19th Century cover shooter convince? Ready At Dawn creative director Ru Weerasuriya seems to think so.
The small amount that we have seen was stunning imo, cant wait to see and hear more about it.
It's probably one of my most anticipated PS4 games - I hope it pulls it off.
I've still the purchase a PS4, this could be the game that sways me, from what I've seen and heard it may turn out truly epic.
Order can definitely serve to be a great IP for Sony. I'm still crossing my fingers for coop with friends, but I think the game is going to be fantastic either way. :)
We really haven't seen anything on this game, monsters, weapons, exploration, puzzles, story etc... I'm glad they are holding back on info. Ready at Dawn know what they are doing, and they will deliver a solid experience no doubt!
Pfft, you don't reveal the cool stuff until E3. Everyone knows that! ;D
stunning yes but hope it's not just a typical cover based shooter.
I dont get it why did you get disagrees.
Because from the small amount of gameplay we've seen it's got a generic style of gameplay. But graphically it's amazing, the gameplay wasn't mesmerizing at all.
One of these " Next Gen" games need to just be absolutely awesome & amazing in almost every way possible. I still want to see that " Ahh haa" moment where I finally realize what Next Gen GAMEPLAY actually looks and feels like.
Truly a unique idea.
A linear third person shooter... INNOVATION!
Yea because nothing screams innovation like an FPS with a Yank space marine, who saves the day.. Hoorahhhh! This setting is far more unique than your beloved Halo's. Whoops, just realised I could've been talking about Halo OR Titanfall. You're really letting your stealth trolling skills down recently. Your insecurity has just been beaming through your comments lately.
ha ha ha titanfall ..... SO INNOVATIVE. see what i did there? ya thought so, now go troll somewhere else.
@FlunkinMonkey Not sure where I mentioned Titanfall or Halo? All I said was this game wasn't innovated, but clearly my comment upset you so much you resorted to games that weren't even mentioned. But are you suggesting that Halo has brought no innovation to the FPS genre and that The Order 1886 will bring more innovation than Halo ever did? I laugh at that, Halo 2 says hi XD Also, what am I insecure about? If I want to play this game, I can play it, I have a PS4.
He hasn't even seen that much of the game and he is dismissing it. Marked for trolling.
I'm referring to: 1 - Your avatar, which clearly indicates you praise Halo. 2 - Your constant love you show for Titanfall.. Is it really that hard to see why I placed the reference? The premise of the setting is FAR more innovative than Halo, yup.. Steam punk era set in London, compared to Halo's? haha. Yea... As for the games innovative mechanics.. it isn't out for over 7 months or so, and you've seen 3 minutes of gameplay.. Neither of us can judge that until it is out, i'm not saying it is more innovative game play wise, because i haven't seen enough. You are a joke. You don't own a PS4, you are just are just second account troll, and a bad one at that.. everyone knows it. Time to make a new account there soon, mate? Maybe jump on this thread with another?
@arbitorchief A linear third person shooter.... sounds like gears of war or quantum break. You are an obvious troll it must hurt that bungie is favouring the ps4 this time round huh?
Pretty much most games released are not innovative anymore, it's how they are executed. Very good chance the next gears of war will be a linear third person cover based shooter, won't stop fans of the series from enjoying it if it's fun to play. From the small gameplay trailer I have seen of the order I think it looks great and a game I will hopefully enjoy. So yea a game doesn't have to separate itself from the crowd to be a great game
@DjPlonker "You are an obvious troll it must hurt that bungie is favouring the ps4 this time round huh?" Dude if you going spew stuff like this make sure you get the facts straight. You are an obvious troll it must hurt that ALL DEVELOPERS are favoring the PS4 this time round huh? There i fixed it for you. Please dont let it happen again. LOL
I'm still dubious about this - yeah, it looks good and it has some nice ideas, but Ready At Dawn aren't exactly known for their innovative game-making and top-tier production values. Still, I have high hopes!
I know this is RAD's first big console project and i know they don't have a huge rep. But they shouldn't be doubted so easily. The God Of War games they did for the PSP were very well received, as was the God Of War Origins collection for PS3. They did an excellent job. They are also made up of ex-Naughty Dog members ;) Going from those games straight into a huge next-gen project is no easy task. But im optimistic about them as a studio and The Order 1886.
Someone pointed out to me that Rocksteady didn't have a great track record before they did the Arkham games. Never count out an aspiring developer with ambitious ideas. ;)
Before LBP Media Molecule didnt have a huge rep. Same with Halo and Bungie. Crash and Naughty Dog. Titanfall and Respawn. Everyone has to start somewhere. All of those games had great positive buzz before they were even out. So does The Order. People believe in what that can see. And like Lukas said, RaD arent exactly noobies. Theyve made many great games (based on someone eles IP) but I think thats what driving them to prove themselves in their own right.
I just see dishonored all over again.
They made good games before (on the PSP) so I have hope that this game will be good.
Then again, little else is.
i seriously can't wait for this game
I like the Order and it's premise a lot but I wouldn't go so far as to call it Sony's most important new IP.
What is then? Other than Drive Club which new IP has a tenth of the hype The Order does? While like any game, the system won't hinge on its success, but it's certainly the current poster boy for what the systems capable off and in that respect a hugely important title.
what new IP would be more important?
What is then?
Something to be announced at E3 perhaps?
The only other new IPs are Drive club and maybe the Last Guardian. So out of these two what would you choose? Unless you have some secret information for us.
@above Way I see it is this- you start throwing around titles and what not like "Sony's most important and new IP" you set expectations that become a burden. Once the game comes out even if it is great, it won't live up to those lofty titles and ambition it's been given. It will then be considered a let down and be trashed by MS and NIN followers and everyone else under the sun. The Order is a game that has lots of potential and made by a group of people whose games I liked quite a lot. I rather have expectations set in reality and be pleasantly surprised than to give it titles it can't live up to. Finally it's only PS4 first year- if its "most important and new ip" is coming out in the first year somethings wrong. I expect such a mythical title to come out when developers have a greater grasp on the system, what it can do and be made to do, and the unique innovations they can do only with PS4.
because its fresh and it looks wonderful. i cant wait
The game has huge potential and I think we're all in the same boat waiting in anticipation to see how it turns out. However from the gameplay I saw, I was hugely unimpressed. Sure the graphics were good but nothing in the gameplay made me want to buy or pre-order it, granted it must have been an incredibly early build but there's plenty of work to do for it to become the most important new ip. I hope they deliver, because the story does seem like something that would really interest me
Holding my breath about this one. I seen an article were it was stated the order was overly cinematic and there was not enough gameplay.
The most journalist have gotten to play is 15 - 20 minutes... How can they know how much gameplay is in the final product?
Where did I say final product? Thought it would be obvious that it was only a piece of the game. Stop trying the ol N4G trick of nitpicking comments. I err on the edge of caution when it comes to games and from this footage there is a lot of unnecessary breaks in gameplay. https://www.youtube.com/wat... Sorry im not excited about a 3rd person cover shooter that is yet to show anything worth getting hyped over.
How am i nitpicking? My point is any journalist that says its overly cinematic based on a small segment of gameplay, is making unfounded assumptions... And obviously you agree with them since you're getting defensive... What if right after that segment its just straight 20 mins of gameplay? Or a 10 minute cutscene? None of us know... Too early to cling to that as an "issue" Btw, I'm not trying to get you "hyped" for the game... Tbh I don't care wat you like... Just pointing out how shortsighted the journalists you mentioned were
In the first gameplay trailer, the gameplay mechanics was very shallow . hope we will not be disappointed in terms of gameplay ! the graphics is king btw !
"hope we will not be disappointed with gameplay but graphics are king" lol what a joke of a statement that is. gameplay should always be more important than graphics.
where i said that graphics are more important or even as important as gameplay ? Gameplay is most essential aspect of a game ! @daniel2115: i said graphics are king because the order's graphics is king compared to other next gen games so far !
@walker i mustve misunderstood you then, i thought you meant "graphics is king" as in graphics are more important than anything
I will get flame for this but I think Sony should invest on a AAA game that can take advantage of PSN + so they can bring in more subscribers like what MS did with the Halo franchise. Killzone isn't that franchise and since the Order:1886 is single player only, I think it will slightly better than inFamous: SS in terms of accolades and sales. It will sell millions, no doubt, but I have a feeling why Sony made an investment in partnering with Bungie in promoting and getting extra content for Destinye is that they want that game to be the AAA game that help sells PSN +. It is still a third party game so don't know how that will turns out but I am hoping we will see a PS4 exclusive game that will set the online community on fire announce at E3.
I think PS Plus is doing just fine without a "Halo".
PS+ is just fine lol if ppl are not jumping on PS+ they are missing out especially if you have more than one Sony console. I have Vita, PS3, and PS4 it is really hard to keep up.
Ps plus doesn't need a Halo the instant game collection will do the trick so yeah take your Halo advise somewhere else maybe Nintendo
The graphics alone will sell this game, they are jaw-dropping. The gameplay just has to be serviceable lol.
graphics alone will not sell the game. maybe to a few people, but not the majority. why would u want to play a game with crappy gameplay? thats what games are for
I said serviceable gameplay, that does not mean crappy.
Yea. Until the next new ip, then that one will be the most important new ip. Same story just and differnt name.
This is the one game that had me excited for next gen. When this was showcased at E3, I was sold without any gameplay footage. It just looked like a breath of fresh air. Then after reading this article on IGN, I began to worry that I would be dissapointed when the game actually released. http://www.ign.com/articles... "The brief 10-minute hands-off demo I witnessed confirmed some of my fears. The portion of the adventure I saw ran relatively poorly, with sudden, sharp transitions between scenes, audio issues, and a lagging framerate. Ready at Dawn’s CEO and Founder Ru Weerasuriya was quick to point out that this sliver of the game wasn’t QA tested and optimized at all, and that there might be problems. But I was left wondering how this could be the best 10 minutes of the game the studio had to show, especially when he reiterated that The Order would indeed launch in 2014." Anyhow, I'm still looking forward to picking this title up at launch and deciding for myself. I just hope RAD can deliver, because we sure could use some decent new AAA IP's this gen.
" Ready at Dawn’s CEO and Founder Ru Weerasuriya was quick to point out that this sliver of the game wasn’t QA tested and optimized at all" Forget IGN, or any other websites opinion, just watch some livestreams on the PS4 app when it releases, make your judgement off that.
Why show it when it wasn't tested though? I never understand that. They know the press is there to analyze it. Why show something that isn't ready?
"just watch some livestreams on the PS4 app when it releases, make your judgement off that." True! I really love that LIVE stream app on ps4. I was watching gameplay of Outlast the other day, and gameplay of a few Japanese import games. One game was called DREAM CLUB I believe lol. I laughed for 15 minutes straight at how quirky of a game it is. Dream Club http://www.youtube.com/watc... PS: This guy has the best PLAYSTATION YouTube page ever... He has every PS4 and every PS VITA game it seems. With a mix of American releases and Japanese releases as well. Check him out.
@ incendy "Why show it when it wasn't tested though?" To stop getting hounded by entitled gamers, like they were for months on end. Demanding gameplay from them. Better to show a snippet of unfinished, unoptimized gameplay rather than have the pressure of people constantly asking and doubting. "Why show something that isn't ready?" Name me a developer who doesn't show off footage of their game from before it goes gold.
I like the art style and atmosphere. Beyond that they haven't really shown much that I liked though. The combat looked stiff, the camera looks confined and so many scripted events with QTE's. I will hold judgment until it releases but as of now this one I am very worried to hype.
They've shown too little of this game to deem it as a must-have, at least for me.
I have to see more it's to sketchy at this point.
Correct me if I a wrong But isnt Ready at Dawn a multiplat studio that sony paid for content from. This is not even one of there first party studios. How about Drive Club? The game looks beautiful but lets hope e3 shows some first party magic as that is what Sony is known for not usually paying devs for content. I just hope they have more then ps3 remakes coming. Something just seems amiss at sony and there first party like they are going more for buying content and slimming down there first party offerings like ms did last gen. Time will tell as it worked for ms. Ms on the hand seems to be going the first party route by opening a number of new studios that last year past sonys offerings before even sony shut some down.
To all who are doubting this game and RAD studios remember they are ex naughtydog devs and the God of war games on the psp where awesome I have no doubt they will deliver
The Order 1886 The Last Guardian Guerilla Games new IP Quantic Dream new project Media Molecule new IP
Can't wait to play this. I also want to see Guerilla Games new IP.
im sure we are going to see one more sony exclusive aaa title this year besides drive club and the order. so they dont have to shoulder ps4 on their own this holiday season anyways i hope they dont. thats a tall order for any developer.
