Ready at Dawn revealed its next game, De-formers, an arena-combat game published by GameTrust.
Reminds me of katamarI but as a multiplayer game
Actually looks fun
I'm honestly not surprised. that this is their next project.Everyone had high hopes for something major and this is what we get. A light hearted party game obviously vastly different from The Order. Looks meh.
I'm guessing that they didn't make much from the Order....
hmmmmm... OK? next game please...
they better make a free Order 1886 huge DLC to redeem themselves ..rather making new games ...although it looks different and maybe fun
Sony owns the Order IP, so RAD will definitely not be doing that
Well Im dissapointed a little. :(
Only little? :(
what i had in mind was since they can't do Order sequel with GS producing it, i really thought they'll create a separate world similar to Order - like what From did with Demon's Souls. But i'm deeply disappointed. obviously since GS is producing it they had to go UA.
Yeah, this seems like a massive step backward. This developer was on the edge of greatness.
I'm massively disappointed. So much potential from the order ip. Just needed to refine it and fix the complaints in the sequel.
I'm very disappointed. I was expecting a follow-up to the Order. Oh well, I guess in a few years maybe.
Haha that was the perfect way to describe this situation
It could still be a lot of fun but yea...
Same here. It's very rare that I get hooked by multiplayer-centric games so this is probably not for me. I guess it's not their only project though so hopefully [email protected] are working on another single player-centric game as well.
Why? It looks interesting, we need to give it some time until we learn more. Plus, apparently the studio is working on 2 or 3 games, one of which might be an Order sequel.
Why you got a disagree for that is beyond me.
Dis be what happens when people bash games and the studio loses money.
Hopefully this is just a side project and they've got a main team on something bigger... The Order 1887. I'll give this a shot if it's f2p or budget priced, but this is not what I wanted from them.
They're working on multiple titles. This seems like one of the smaller ones.
The reason they not doing The Order sequel is because PlayStation cut ties with them so they lost their right as second party to develop exclusive AAA games for PlayStation. So right they became a third party but sadly they not making AAA games for a while after been critize badly and not meetings sell expectations. So Gamestop offer them the chance to make AA games for them as a publisher so don't expect amazing games from any time soon. while The Order, PlayStation can either hires their First-party or Second/Third-party studio to make a sequel or a Reboot or put the Ip on hold for many years to come.
Yeah not my thing, looks weird too
Tbh i didnt expect a big AAA game. The order only came out last year
Yep, looks pretty lame. I really liked The Order.
Oh boy!... I wasn't expecting this (don't mean it in a good way). Are they trying to appeal to the Rocket League market?
1. This game looks fun and beautiful. 2. Rocket League usually has around 30k concurrent users online. Its loved by millions. Its a FANTASTIC game. 3. Whats wrong with variation?
game looks fun. I dont blame game stop to have a beta game out there from them. The Order was much worth a rental game. They need to prove themselves first.
I was hoping this was a joke. Guess not. Very very sad. Instead of a new Order title they chose to make this??? I got bored watching the trailer. Absolute pass on this crap. Sony needs to grow some balls, have them address some of the shortcomings of the first one, and make a kick ass new Order title. I really enjoyed the first one. Fantastic setting, lore etc. Instead we get this garbage.
This game will be published by Gamestop, Sony isnt involved one bit on this.
The Order has sold about 1.6 million copies...to DATE. It bombed big style and it was panned critically (subjective medium but still)
Quantum Broke only sold about 400.000 copies and it was hyped as Microsoft TLOU LOL!!!! So, The Order beat it unfortunately for you ;)
Source? Please don't say VGchartz
1.6 million equates to bombing big style ? lol
Which is why they're following it up with a kiddie platformer? With online multiplayer. Most studios when trying to make a name, establish a style, tend to keep to certain concepts. They don't dump everything for something like...that. Not unless they're going to be making those types of games. Use elements and mechanics as they go along.
The Order bombed? better check your source again.
On what planet is 1.6 million bombed big style. Those are good sales.
Go take a look at the best selling PS4 games. You will then realize that 1.6 million copies sold isn't a flop at all. It actually would make The Order one of the best selling games on the PS4.
1.6 million copies what? Lmao The Order was a flop deal with it
1.6 million for a game on a SINGLE platform is amazing. What are you smoking
@ItalianGamer It wasn't hyped in that way by MS or Remedy also...what does this have to do with The Order? Also, The Order was heavily discounted very quickly it was down to 19.99 new only a handful of months later. Just because it sold 1.6 million copies doesn't mean that was at the original MSRP. Though to be fair I paid 79.99 on launch day so they got at least one.
How are The Order lifetime sales relevant, How is 1.6mil sold a flop, Did it even sell 1.6 mil Why is Quantum break brought into the equation and why is the sales of this 2 month old game compared to the sales of a 1 year+ old game. And why compare them directly when the population on PS4 is almost twice that of XB1 Jesus the intelligence in these comment sections is astounding.
That's not a bomb. While I really enjoyed The Order, and thought critics were way too harsh on it, this game looks like more fun, which is ultimately what gaming is about. I'm looking forward to it!
Sony doesn't own Ready at Dawn.
Do they own the order ip? Cuz if they do... No matter how you look at it it's still disappointing they aren't working on the next one.
As Game4funz said, Sony DOES own the IP for The Order. They could definitely have encouraged them to make another and fund it. 1.6 million copies is not small potatoes. It is not a dudebro shooter and therefore the sell through is going to be lower than CoD (also it is a console exclusive so the audience is limited by comparison).
@game4funz: Given how the Order was received I doubt Sony would be as patient with them as they were before.
Uhh...............Not a Sony game.
Who said they were making this instead of anything? People can work on multiple things at the same time. They were probably working on this alongside The Order too.
Nodoze has totally dozed off!!! Sony own The Order ip not ready at dawn!! If Sony didn't have balls they probably wouldn't be bringing the last guardian out! Sony will more than likely put the sequel on another studio.
you havent even played the game. And i were to test this developer too with a small game. the order wasnt all that up to par besides visuals
I still believe there's hope for The Order, but that doesn't necessarily mean RAD has to be the ones developing it. Considering how egregious their cinematic affections were with the first, a new dev may not be such a bad thing. And I'm surprised at the amount of disappointment over RAD's newly announced game; then again, I thought TO: 1886 was crap. I personally like seeing these kinds of drastic transitions: RAD's last game: a title that almost-exclusively emphasized how cinematic is was being--to the point of suggesting a lower FPS as some kind of artistic ideal for them, resulting in a 6.5 hour railroading experience that goes so far as to essentially show contempt at the idea you were supposed to "play" it at all. And for the sake of realism, it was another game with a grim-dark tone. RAD's new game: a colorful, playful atmosphere involving weird balls hitting each other Okay...let's try to take away all the background behind The Order, its exclusivity, and whatever else. If you only knew the concepts of both games wouldn't this transition seem like great news? There's a healthier amount of fresh games, even in regards to shooters like Overwatch, that are embracing the fun in games again and not all so desperate to follow the usual AAA setup of 'dark' FPS's just to get some of the COD crowd momentarily.
Well seeing as they spent all that time and effort trying to push graphics for the Order and then got panned for their efforts, I'm not surprised they went for a simpler game.
Lol no big AAA for you, you aesthetically obsessed lunatics.
* checks date * Well, I guess it's not an april fools' joke.
Playing this will be awesome probably, just like Rocket League. I'll reserve my judgement.
Awe what's wrong people, were you expecting something really awesome like with all the effort they put in The Order then the gaming community just put them down so bad! So I bet they were like screw it lets just make something else, I mean why go through all that effort for all that backlash lol.
It's like they went from Park Ave. to the slums....awful.
Is the Xbox tag a mistake or is this multiplatform?
Probably multiplat. It is published by Gamestop
look bad omg from the order to this see what drugs those
not my idea of fun. ah well...
Game play over visual, but..when ready @Dawn does go for game play over visual, you now again have people panning the studio even before the freaking game goes out. Next stop if gamers keep this up.wait.. What do you mean Ready @ Dawn are only doing mobile games from here on out.... I tell you it seems Gamers are their own worst enemy at time's.
People aren't understanding that this is mostly a low budget game considering that gamestop is publishing it to. Anyone expecting them to do some major huge graphical order type of title under that publisher is out of their mind tbh
They complain about EVERTHING.
Looks like a mobile game for a tv console.
People disappointed that it isn't a sequel to The Order: 1886, Well, that's generally what happens when big projects end up not doing well. You get the idea that no one wants a sequel. They might return to it. Or not. It would be a little silly to make their next game something as big and financially challenging as a sequel to The Order, don't you think?
The Order supposedly sold around 1.7 million copies. That is a smashing sales success, even if it was critically panned. Ultimately, sales matter more than critical reception when it comes to sequels.
Do we know that 1.7 made profit or broke even? For all we know it needed to hit 3-4 million to make profit or break even. Let's also not forget The Order is only a year old. IF a Sequel happens,it would not be a year after.
Deafdani, Segata is correct. Not every game has the same budget. If GTA did that much on each of the available platforms, it might be considered a commercial failure since that was half a billion dollars. Sales do matter, but you have to look at general reception as well. I imagine it sold the way it did because of the hype surrounding its production values . It showed off an exemplary performance on PS4: absolutely stunning visuals, rock solid frame rate, and a cover system that worked very well for the game. It just didn't vibe with many people for a number of reasons like length and linearity. Anyway, word of mouth is powerful advertising. People likely preordered and got it before they had a sense of the game's issues, so yeah, it did well. Or it's entirely possible people waited on price drops. I did. Got it for $10. What I'm saying is you can't count on a sequel doing as well until they find ways to address the current issues with the series. It's too soon for a sequel in my opinion. I think it may have just squeaked by commercially, but a sequel with too many of the same elements would not bode well for the game.
