The Order: 1886: Built to Last, Rival Assassin’s Creed

In this modern era of movies, games, and even books, most publishers don’t put their money forward unless expanding into a trilogy or other similar franchise opportunities is a possibility. The difference between many IP’s and The Order: 1886 is that its foundation was made to support an ongoing narrative that arches over centuries.

I hate it when they start pitching these games as massive sagas. Concentrate on making a great single game, then if it's well received make your sequel. Otherwise you're potentially setting yourself up to fail.

The Order: 1886 has more than one universe as far as I understand. I think it has potential to be an amazing franchise.

goldwyncq1201d ago

The Order: 1920 set during the roaring twenties would be awesome.

Alex, we both know that's not why you want this game to flop.

@Alexoepp

LOL seems like youre so insecure hoping for a game to flop on a system you dont prefer.

"I hope this game flops. And hopefully they are already far in development on the sequel before they realize that no one is buying their game."

What a disgusting, bitter comment. They clearly had the vision for The Order to be a franchise before they made it, hence the numbers after the title. How could you wish that it would flop? Why would you wish that on any developer who has spent years putting so much hard work into their game? This game is how they will pay their bills...i just....ughhhhh, people like you are the worst, letting your dislike of a certain company (in your case, Sony) bleed over into developers and games.

You are an embarrassment to true gamers, seriously. Why did you even buy your PS4? All you ever do is bash it.

I agree, but theres a difference between jumping the shark with a line up games and setting up a universe for more stories to thrive in.

ThisEndsNow1202d ago

They should at least see how this game goes then decide if they should make more.

majiebeast1201d ago

If you look at RaD's track record you really dont have to worry.

kamisama1201d ago

You do know one of the basis of this game is to start a new franchise jeese people think

showtimefolks1201d ago

when it was revealed and shown for the first time it got some negative feedback which i think will help the game in the end. Can't wait to see how the latest build is shaping up to be at E3

my gut tells me this game will be an early 2015 title but i want it in fall 2014(but if 3-6 extra months mean we get a much better game than i for one don't mine the extra time)

MrSword1201d ago

I disagree, Making the story up as you go is bad and would cause inconsistencies + plot holes.

It is much better to set up the outline all the major points before you start, if it is enough for more than on game so be it.

rivencleft1201d ago (Edited 1201d ago )

I already have the feeling that the ending for the game will leave us with a cliffhanger, open to more games. I'm definitely okay with that but you're right, they should concentrate on a great single game before worrying about future installments, but most developers are already thinking about future installments usually before the game is released. I'm thankful for certain trilogies (Mass Effect) as they were truly great games, but I'm curious as to whether or not Bioware was thinking about part 2 before 1 was even out. I think The Order will be an amazing game, I simply cannot wait for it.

While I agree that the devs should test the waters first, there's really no stopping them from conceptualizing a big franchise from the get-go and sharing it to the world.

The realization of that concept will depend on the appeal of this game, whether critical or sales or both.

Speak_da_Truth1201d ago

My most anticipated announced game of 2014. can't wait see more at E3. i researched about these characters especially Sir. Galahad and they're really interesting

hello121201d ago (Edited 1201d ago )

Its going to have problems this game, as its only got a single player campaign. What do you do when you finish the campaign?

The best selling and most played games, have both least nowadays.

In lot of ways multiplayer lasts longer, as it can be more easily supported with DLC

From the trailers it looks good. How it plays is still unknown?

DigitalRaptor1201d ago (Edited 1201d ago )

* Biggest and most epic facepalm ever seen *

What do you do when you finish the campaign? Am I actually hearing this? Please somebody pinch me. Slap me and tell me people can't be this stupid.

Comments like yours makes me feel old. And not in a bad way. What happened when you finished Shadow of the Colossus? What happened when you finished Resident Evil 4? What happened when you finished Half-Life? What happened when you finished Shenmue? What happened when you finished Alan Wake? What happened when you finished The Last of Us?

New-school casual gamers like yourself are too easy to spot.

Squeaky_door1201d ago

When I finished TLOA I played the online multiplayer for awhile

hello121201d ago (Edited 1201d ago )

I have been around playing games since the Super Nintendo days, so don't assume you know me, when you don't.

We have moved on and people like to keep playing a game when they've finished the campaign. You pay a high price for buying a game in store. So i want to keep playing it and not have it sitting on the shelf gathering dust. Maybe your happy with a single player game only, i prefer if it had multiplayer too, more so when the Order is tagged as a shooter.

Legion@

Your comparisons are dumb. Would you watch Die hard 1 the movie and not bother watching Die hard 2?

Comparing sandwiches to games now?

FalloutWanderer20771201d ago (Edited 1201d ago )

Agreed. I will be 32 this month and yes, I love to play games just as I did when I was a young teenager.

I've been playing games for over 20 years and some of the changes in the game industry and even more so, with the fans these days is for lack of a better word, disheartening.

Every games has to either be Multiplayer,co-op or in some way mimic whats presently popular or it is a failure in the eyes of fans and/or critics...Depending on who you ask.

I fear for the day if/when the Single-player game dies.

That will certainly be the day gaming dies for me.

Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy particular competitive multiplayer games and once in a while,I am in the mood for some co-op with a stranger or a friend but never,ever will those modes and game-styles replace a good solo adventure in a single-player game for me.

To each their own.

All I ask is for those players who exclusively enjoy only multiplayer/Co-op, please leave the single-player games alone.

Not every game needs a tacked on additional mode in order to enjoy or have Replay value.

WeAreLegion1201d ago

What do you do when you finish a book? Or a movie? Or a TV show? Or even a sandwich?

GarrusVakarian1201d ago

Guess you won't be buying Quantum Break then, huh?

gamer11381201d ago

Quantum break has multiple endings and hopefully even playthroughs based on decisions made at the junctions in time. I played ME1 & ME2 through at least twice each time, because decisions you made affected the game. This is where I think the Order will struggle. It looks like it should be a bioware RPG in the vein of Mass Effect but is coming off as a Gears of War style action game. With the later it needs a co-op or multiplayer segment to keep interest. With the former replay comes through experiencing different outcomes to the game. NOW, i know Read at Dawn have talked up the branching QTE(where's all the bashing that Ryse got, btw) which sounds really cool, but if you can't influence the narrative then ultimately it's not really going to add much to the experience. I guess we'll get solid answers at E3! It's one to watch.

PrinceOfAllSaiyans1201d ago

The best looking game releasing this year. Can't wait. But it better not turn into an every year thing like AC.

FalloutWanderer20771201d ago (Edited 1201d ago )

Subjective opinions withstanding...I almost "corrected" you. If it were not for The Witcher 3 being delayed until Feb. 2015,IMO that would of been the best looking game of 2014.

I definitely believe it will be a contender for GOTY and best looking game come 2015.
