The Order: 1886 is more than "just a cover shooter"

GRTV caught up with SCEE producer Gavin Russell to discuss the E3 builds of The Order: 1886.

"We don't want it to be seen as just a cover shooter," says Gavin Russell. "We have a lot of story. A lot of history within the characters themselves that we want to bring forward. And by literally just saying just run, gun, run, gun - and then giving you a cutscene. That's not good enough for us."

But it is a cover shooter at its core no? Just cause it has some survival horror elements added in doesn't make it different?

Actually...saying that, TLOU was like that and it didn't feel like a straight up cover shooter. I can kind of see what they're getting at.

All I've seen so far is cover shooting with some cutscenes in between. If it's more than just that then it would be good for them to actually show us more than just that.

This game is looking impresive visually. Hopefully they show us some more gameplay soon.

-- so therefore we are going to delay it another year while we rework the gameplay!

j/k ;)

well, it will be one of those defining moments of the current generation so yeah I believe it.

I enjoy cover shooters like Gears of War and Max Payne, the setting of this game is what sets it apart from the others. There are plenty of 2d platformers and not one person complains "oh man, another platformer." That's the only excuse fanboys and haters can come up with to diss the game, "awww maannn, another cover shooter!" This game will be great and I hope it's a lot like Gears of War just with better characters and story/setting while the action and gameplay is almost identical, aside from the QTE's which I'm sure will be extremely well implemented and only enhance the cinematic feel of the game. Can't wait for February, this is easlily my most anticipated game in a very long time.

I thought I was the only one who was highly anticipating this game but its good to find someone else who shares the same anticipation and to those calling it the Ps4's Ryse or The Hall way 1886 i can't wait for you to be sooooo wrong.

I bought a PS4 mainly for this game. First thing that surprised me were the graphics as I didn't expect a $400 device to be able to produce visuals like that. But then I got hooked by the setting of the Order.

The potential is huge with that game and I can't wait to play it and learn more about the story the game is trying to tell.

I just hope it'll turn out great.

I love the setting. I love the graphics. But every gameplay video I see just disappoints me. Slow gameplay in a cover shooter is a big no no, and throwing in QTE.. Blehh

Raf1k11540d ago

I thought I missed something when you mentioned Max Payne and then remember the latest Max Payne game. The originals were anything but cover shooters.

more than just a cover shooter ... ITS A STEAMPUNK COVER SHOOTER

not excited at all ... but really looking forward to all of the RPGs this summer/fall ... Diablo 3 RoS, DA:I, Mordor ...
