The Order: 1886 Dev Responds To Graphical Changes In New Build; Comparison Shows Improvements

GearNuke: "Ready At Dawn's Founder Andrea Pessino quickly squashed all the fanboy rumors of The Order: 1886 being "downgraded" when people started to compare the newly released highly compressed footage to the old build." (Andrea Pessino, PS4, The Order: 1886)

Prepare to be blown away at E3. I am sure The Order: 1886 is going to be one of the best looking game this year.
Cindy-rella  +   624d ago
i can't believe how beautiful the order 1886 is and will definitely get a ps4. i really like the style of the game and the story seems very much interesting along with the gameplay. the funny thing is I'm not much a fan of this sort of game but i can't wait to have it.

there isn't anything available on these new gaming consoles today that looks as good as the order 1886 and i can't believe insiders are saying uncharted 4 looks better. i really can't wait for the ps4 to be in my hands and to have this game later on. i definitely hope there is a the last of us bundle on ps4 because that game is ace

I'm amazed at the graphics on the The Order 1886. I was amazed at the first trailer this one destroyed the first trailer. I find it so hard to believe that Uncharted 4 can look better than The Order. My jaw hit the floor when I saw this new trailer amazing. Best looking game on consoles or pc so far.


Pc fanBoys sound so butt hurt pathetic and with hurt feelings because of their jealous of The Order graphics. There more to graphics than higher resolutions. Lightning, particle effects, texture qualities and shadow. The Order looks incredible better than any thing on pc . xbone can't do these graphics it's to weak. We all know high end PC have a lot of horsepower . But few people own high end PC and their so many different types of pc graphics card that developers don't use all their function and power. The Order looks incredible best graphics on any platform . The Order will be PS4 first real system seller.

You make your self look foolish when you don't give credit were credit is due. I will say that ryse has great graphics it may play like crap put it looks great. No ryse is not the best graphics on game consoles but the best on xbone.

My main gaming machine is a PC, with a PS4 chucked in for exclusives.

I must say, The Order looks totally amazing, i was actually god smacked at how this game looked and ran.

We all know that console games are optimised to the hilt due to same hardware, while PC games are not, due to the myriad of different components. There is only one game on PC that really pushes the graphical boundries and that is Crysis 3 and it is crap to play.

Guarantee this, The Order and Uncharted will steal E3.

@EvilSnuggle, You sound like a huge Sony fanboy. Its okay to have a preference to a certain console and its okay to only buy one console because maybe you might not like the games on the xbox, but do you really think that the xbox one cant produce a game that has the visuals of the order. Ryse has most certainly not maxed out the console yet and i'm sure the sequel will squash it, and I'm sure Halo 5 and Gears 4 will probably have the visual fidelity of the infiltrator demo, even tho Halo 5 uses a different engine, im sure they can pull off those same effects.

Sony and Ready at Dawn should have given more thought to revealing new game footage via Twitch! It is compressed and has just added some negativity discussion to their product. Hopefully they release a high quality video of the same footage. I can't wait to see more on the E3 stage.

Just because you can run a game in higher resolution doesn't make it "next-gen". Sorry, but old game is old. Doesn't matter what resolution you're running it on. It means little.
GarrusVakarian  +   624d ago
It's getting annoying that we are still using such low quality video players in the next generation. Last gen it wasn't so much of a problem, because games were only 720p (and many were under that). But now, we have higher resolutions, high res textures, more detail...and it's all going to waste on crappy YouTube videos.

I mean, look at that comparison gif, the newer build looks like a damn PS3 game because of the crappy quality (mixed with the darker tone). I bet devs are equally annoyed that their hard work is getting shown off in such an unflattering way.

I think more devs should do what Evolution studios has done with DriveClub and set up a dedicated page for high quality, 1080p captures. But maybe that's asking too much......

Yes, it's about time developers & publishers look for better ways to show off their games. I could imagine that Sony's marketing department tried Twitch to see peoples interest and response but they probably didn't expect such a bad quality. I can imagine them being pretty disappointed as well, it would've been much smarter to just send the footage to Gamersyde.

Wow. So you're using a non-contextual alpha build from February?

Insane. And two outlets is not "every" outlet.

It's a shame... you were using old impressions of DriveClub to downplay it in the present too, even though there are more recent impressions and it's been super positive. The rumblings from judges week is that The Order impresses and impresses largely, in terms of gameplay as well as graphics.
Sevir  +   623d ago

2 outlets that out of 30 press doesn't equal everyone. Secondly, that preview from Feb was also very much hands off, so those two outlets only stated that the build they saw was early. Exactly what Colin Moriarty of IGN said. Not that it played like shit. Those are your words. Run along XBO troll.

Looks like a downgrade

90% of clothes details were removed. All the moving parts etc. Guy to the left with a beard now just looks plastic. I just don't believe in ceremonial/combat gear excuse. Next they'll say characters also had a skin treatment to make it smooth. It's not just clothes detail but also character detail and weapon detail. Many 3d elements turned into a texture. Game still looks fantastic, one of best one there (atleast until release) but I hate when they lie.

If you can't see the downgrade then there's no hope for you. Press disagree as much as you wan't, it doesn't mean you're right.

You were saying the same thing about inFamous: Second Son before it came out, downplaying its graphical elements. And after it came out looking absolutely pristine, you were lying about it having been downgraded even though there was conclusive proof it received an upgrade rather than a downgrade.

This is damaged image quality captured from a Twitch stream, you buffoon. You can "see a downgrade" because it's a poor quality source.

People will disagree with you because you are known for downplaying graphics of Sony exclusives and then when it's proven to be bullsh*t you stick to your broken guns.

Look I know that several exclusives received downgrades on the Xbox One (Like Ryse, Forza 5) but that doesn't mean that the same will happen to Playstation exclusives. Like Sucker punch said since the Playstation 4 is more powerful than the Xbox One developers so have no reason to downgrade their games on it. Because the games even without a downgrade will still look better than the Xbox One version.

This was their response to people claiming that they downgraded Infamous.

The character models in the new build looks better to me because its looks natural/more realistic while the older build looks a bit more like the musketeer.

The art direction in the new build looks better.
Stapleface  +   624d ago
IDK how they look more realistic. In the old build the woman had an actual flesh color to her skin. Now her skin looks like she came back from the dead. Is she a vampire? I thought they were the enemy. If she isn't a vampire, she is very sick. Or Irish.
BluEx610  +   624d ago
I'm liking the new skin tone, seems to go well with the setting. The lighting in the new build looks insanely better. It kind of tricks your eyes thinking you're watching a really good CG movie.
Stapleface  +   624d ago
No it doesn't trick your eyes into thinking your watching a CG film. LOL I watched the same feed. The graphics were good, but not mind blowing. How does having the skin of a dead person fit into the setting? Even if I go into a dark, damp ally way in an old city, my skin is still going to be the same color. It's not going to look like I just crawled out of a morgue.

Usually, just saying, usually when new and improved hardware/consoles are released, then graphical quality improves. It is clear the graphics are mindblowing, but you clearly can't see that due to the fangirl glasses you're wearing.

New build is far too monotone for my liking too.
So much damage control going on in here.

For those saying it is more realistic for the time and setting... facepalm. Foliage was still green, red brick was still clearly distinguishable from brown wood or grey walls, shop fronts were still full of colour. Clothing could have colour too.

I don't like the new colour filter and change of costume. I thought reviewers had played an early build of the game looking brilliant and colourful? Is this just a style choice (strange one imo) or are they downgrading to meet spec/release date?

This looked cool but now it looks less cool, I still think the game looks great but not better than the previous footage... I look forward to playing...

No he doesn't... If you wanna believe what a dev tells you go ahead but everyone pointed out the downgrade in Forza 5 and now this time The Order gets downgraded and everyone just ignores it and thinks its just different art direction and better shadowing... Its hypocrisy...

"everyone pointed out the downgrade in Forza 5…"

It's hard to miss those Forza downgrades, though some people still deny it happened.

You might as well have not posted those top two links. There's no way a sane person can compare them.

The double pic link, yeah I think the new pic looks better than the old one. The uniforms are different but the dev talked about that. The skin tone is different but a different color can hardly be called a downgrade. Overall the newer pic looks less like a video game and more like a CG movie than the old one does.

The last link… that's quite a comparison… a picture compared to your word that the game looks less cool now.

If there has been a downgrade, and I don't see one yet but I don't rule out that it could happen before release, it's nowhere near comparable to the Forza downgrades which any honest person with average vision can easily see.
HaydenJameSmith  +   624d ago
I'm allowed to make my own intial opinion... and honestly this isn't fanboyism, I am really looking forward to this game. It looks like a major downgrade to me, I still reiterated that I think its still good looking but not better than previous footage. If there making sacrifices for facial animations that are pre rendered I do not agree with that. I didn't deny Forza didn't get a downgrade but I still think Forza 5 looks great and same applies here I think The order 1886 has been downgraded but still looks great. That is an honest opinion, not fanboyism...

Btw that last link was concept art, not in game footage... I was just showing that because I thought it looked cool...

Why cant the first two links be compared ? it shows a downgrade... detail is absent in the sign, bullet holes missing on wall etc. I realise its compressed video but that doesn't remove details/colour from the game...

Your saying the absence of colour is better ? how so ? Im sorry but I think your being fooled... they removed more colour to make the CG look better

I'm sorry but if you had an honest opinion toward this footage and this footage alone you wud admit details have been downgraded, and colour removed, in favour of better facial animation of pre rendered cutscenes... This is just my initial opinion and save judgement till game release or full featured demo at E3 but my point still stand the game has been downgraded... If you don't want to see it, that's your problem...

I don't know what you're seeing but when I click those top two links I get the equivalent of a low res youtube video vs a blu ray. I just don't see how they're comparable. Of course compression can hide details.

I don't understand why you think a change in color can lead to improvements in facial animation.

I'm not really convinced yet that I want to play this game because I haven't seen anything other than the visuals that wowed me, but I do think it looks amazing visually and I honestly don't see a downgrade.

The pic and his same trolling statements here and there betrayed him. So please don't continue arguing with him, because even if the devs explain everything he won't get convinced.

Anyway the game looks very good and even better than before, looking forward to higher quality video and to the E3 live stage demo. :D

@Plastica - Yeah when he started PMing me saying a different color would free up more resources I knew what kind of person I was dealing with.

Cry more, maybe the tears will blur your vision and help you look past the massive Forza 5 downgrades and dem card board cut outs might finally look 3d to you lul

I know, yeah I'm sorry but you'd have to be a complete idiot to defend that image... I still think the game looks good to but it is clear as day that they have made downgrades to details...
MysticStrummer  +   623d ago
What's clear as day if you look at the raw image is that the newer pic is a lower res and therefore more blurry. More blurry = Less detail
DigitalRaptor  +   623d ago
Of course people have seen that image, and it doesn't spell anything of a "downgrade" as you wished it did.

The image is taken from a low-resolution and blurry TwitchTV stream. The fine details of the original source are marred by the way it was decided to be shown. Sony should've just posted a high-quality 1080p download and we wouldn't have the usual suspects crying "downgrade" even when they continue to be proven wrong time and time again.

Remember this?

@ HaydenJameSmith

You'd have to be a complete idiot to not realise that people are comparing high-quality assets to poor-quality assets. Do you have no knowledge or understanding of image quality?

And from your post above there, you seem to actually believe that colour gamut affects the quality of the image or what they are able to do in the engine. You clearly don't understand game development or the science behind imagery if you believe that - and if you believe compression doesn't affect details in the frame, again, you can't know what you're talking about. I can't believe people can be THIS delusional or stupid.

looks downgraded. plain and simple....
Darkstares  +   624d ago
One of the problems is we see these things in poor controlled environments. YouTube and compressed videos are never going to be optimal.
Illusive_Man  +   624d ago
This game is missing roughly 26% of the pixels of a true 1080p game. The fact they are still pimping resolution is sad, but the fact they lie about it is even worst.
AnteCash  +   624d ago
Hey man i saw you boxing, goood stuff illusive man
purp13m0nk3y  +   624d ago
Ummm. Not sure what your trying to say exactly. The devs have been completely open about the resolution, the aspect ratio and their reasons for using them.

They have also stated several times that the game would be easier to run in full 1080p with a less demanding AA.

The choice to use extremely demanding x4MSAA and the reduced pixel count were calculated and deliberate and IMO have played off with the gorgeous visuals.

The devs have been nothing but transparent about this issue.

Good try, but fail. Back under your bridge. By your reasoning a bluray disk with a 16:10 aspect ratio is poorer quality due to having less pixels than a full screen bluray. Same pixel density dude. Just a different aspect ratio.

Do you also dis a director if he chooses to film his movie in an aspect ratio that is not "full screen" on your TV?

Nine_Thousaaandd  +   624d ago
Couldn't have said it better myself...well said!

I have no doubts...that the The Order will be in the top picks for GOTY! The choice for presentation and x4MSAA will pay off big time...I see no downgrades, but a game that will set standards high for this generation. I believe RaD will deliver a next gen masterpiece!
Illusive_Man  +   624d ago
A BluRay is not rendering a movie real time using computations from a GPU. This game is being presented the way it is because the developers cannot achieve full screen 1080p without compromises to their vision. There is no need to feed us bullcrap, the game still looks excellent.
ArbitorChief  +   624d ago
Hard to judge if it was downgraded considering the footage shown was low resolution and the frame rate was all over the place, but it's similar to Infamous where they've made changes to the build and it looks worse, but honestly it doesn't matter, game visually looks great, but the gameplay looks fairly meh.
Speak_da_Truth  +   624d ago
"looks worst" I love this haters i feed on their jealousy and it makes me want the order even more infact i'll be getting the collectors edition and btw inFAMOUS looks great
ArbitorChief  +   624d ago
Well IMO, the previous build of The Order looked better, am I wrong for thinking otherwise? I didn't say Infamous look bad, I even said The Order still looked great visually. Jesus you fanboys get upset so easily. End of the day, game looks like a poor mans Gears of War gameplay wise.

bleedsoe9mm  +   624d ago

MRMagoo123  +   623d ago
yeh that compressed footage sure looks less detailed, I wonder if there is a reason for that , cos it cant be its compressed and all right cos that wouldnt lower detail huh derp.

You xbone fangirls really need to either try A LOT harder or not even bother because this is just sad.

Lol infiltration clothes, are the walls also some kinds of infiltration walls as well as infiltration weapons lol downgraded obviously.
JMyers  +   624d ago
The game looks better, and the facial animations are top notch !

This is all Sony needs to show before E3. Let everyone else tease and hype with talking the talk. Sony will just walk the walk.

Graphically it seems as there actually is a downgrade. From the face and the lighting to the room. New build is much more dark and foggy, while the previous showed much more crisp and detailed environments (the photo with all the characters lined up). The clothes are worse then before, I actually preferred the previous builds detail. I can't fully judge until I see more footage, I won't trust E3 footage because that consists of a lot of bullshots. I'll probably receive many down votes from you Sonydrones (funny because I myself love Sony), however you are the same people who believed Watch Dogs didn't receive a downgrade until the final product was shown and went to bitch about it. Stop being a drone and see what's in front of you.
Ethereal  +   623d ago
Man I am getting pumped for this game. So unique!
HollywoodLA  +   623d ago
My understanding is that Sony decided to show the brief video on twitch, as a response to Microsoft's price drop - but the action itself indicated that they were planning on showing this at E3, and had to respond immediately to their competition, instead opting to show it via Twitch.
Shane Kim  +   623d ago
Why don't all the xbox fanatics just get a PS4 and play this amazing game instead of being so jelaous.
HollywoodLA  +   623d ago
I don't care about any of this. I just watched the video -- oh my god, it looks great.

Gears of War in 1886.

Love it. Can't wait. AAA.
Kratos_Thy_God  +   623d ago
lol at people saying the game was downgraded. Have you even seen the picture?
system22  +   623d ago
Yeah. I think it actually looks better
