First impressions: The Order: 1886 and Bloodborne - Rappler

Rappler had a chance to take both games for a spin during an exclusive media event held at Imperium e-Sports bar and Video Game Lounge.

The story is too old to be commented.

I think both games will be great.

Bloodborne will be challenging as hell and satisfy every gamer who loves hard to beat games and Souls fans.

The Order 1886 will be a heavy story driven games that will satisfy those who yearn for a great single player experiences like Bioshock or TLOU.

I really hope both games becomes commercially and critically successful games.

jb2271980d ago

Yup, I totally agree on both counts. The single player genre needs a shot in the arm to prove to publishers that its still a viable market. I do my part by buying these games day one (assuming the games are quality well built experiences), hopefully other like minded players will do the same. I'm not ready for the future of every game being always online or multiplayer only or pay to win or mmo or what have you, the problem is that single player games don't have the benefit of that persistent revenue from online subs & microtransactions, so these games will need to sell twice as well to prove they are still moneymakers so I'm really hoping they sell gangbusters.

Letthewookiewin1980d ago

In the case of The Order depending on how it ends I hope there will be DLC that actually adds to the experiance like Last of Us: Left Behind did. Also hope there will be a new game plus, I'm really not a multiplayer guy except for the occasional BF4 match. And most of the time in co-op I find I have to deal with other people's stupidity, (come on it's tough dealing with my own) and it ruins it. Needless to say I'm really excited for this SP game.

jb2271980d ago


Haha yup, that's pretty much me too. About the only co-op I can do is in the same room w/ my brother while we co-operatively fail at whatever we are trying to do.

For some reason I hadn't even thought about dlc for The Order but now that you mention it, I'd say that game would be ripe w/ potential for it. The multiple characters & deep storyline are practically begging to be expanded upon, The main game could be 40 hours and judging by a lot of the prerelease stuff from the devs, they'd still have plenty of story to tell. Then there's all of the cool weaponry, a dlc could add even cool guns & devices that would be interesting. Don't wanna put the cart before the horse but I'm really thinking this is a game world I'd really like to revisit after the main story.

showtimefolks1980d ago

bloodborne we all expect to be amazing but i think its The Order 18886 that will surprise many. I can see and expect the order to get mostly positive reviews

Its ready at dawns first game on home consoles, so give hem a chance. They will only get better and i can see sony buying them

Dirtnapstor1979d ago

The Order will most definitely provide a memorable experience. So looking forward to it! Crossing my fingers for DLC.
If anyone hasn't checked out their newest website, do it! It'll be obvious to anyone that RAD does have plans to continue this franchise. Stoked!

Well said Dark Ocelot. Bubs up for u.

I'm really excited for the order. I love a great story above most everything else and it would appear that there's a solid game and second to non graphics to go with the story. I'm pumped to give it a go.

DarkOcelet1980d ago

Thank you :)

I am very excited for The Order too.

AndrewLB1980d ago

I stopped reading as soon as I came across this:

"The game runs at 30 frames per second, ideal for achieving a cinematic feel."


Sounds to me like the author was parroting a press-release from the developer.

And to compare this game to Bioshock has got to be the most ridiculous thing i've ever read.

I know it's knit picking, but Nikola Tesla was living and working in the United States in 1886, the year he founded Tesla Electric Light & Manufacturing. Kinda lame when Dev's put famous people in countries they never lived or worked in. Had the setting been France in 1882, it would have at least been historically accurate.

frostypants1980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

Wait...are you seriously nitpicking the historical accuracy of a game that prides itself on an alternate historical timeline? What is this I don't even...

DarkOcelet1980d ago


Why are you so negative on a game you clearly said you will buy day 1?

" The game looks incredible. I'll be getting it the day it's released for certain."

I honestly cant tell if you are serious or trolling sometimes lol.

DialgaMarine1980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

Yes... Because they had Airships, Subways, Arc Guns, and fully automatic rifles in 1886... Nikola Tesla working in Britain is the only thing that seems a bit historically out of place there... -_-

Maybe I'm crazy because I'm gonna guess here, and it's a really wild guess, but this might NOT actually take place in the real 1886. IS your mind blown, because mine sure is.

Wizard_King1980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

30FPS is the point when you need to consider upgrading to a better system, not aiming for it as a standard lol.

Sad that people defend this.

Awesome games = Linear, QTE, No coop, no PvP, 6h-8h

Another mediocre game destined for the bargain bin in under 3 months aka. Uncharted.

It's a video game not a biography...

You do understand that most video games are fictional?

Take Dying Light for instance. Do you see Zombies running around in central Europe?

How about The Last Of Us... I'm sure you do realize that a fungus that infects the brains of insects probably wouldn't have much of an effect on the human brain.

Fiction isn't a new concept, it's been around for thousands of years.

You need to find another hobby.

Bloodborne>>>the order

bloodborne is for those who want to know a good gameplay "hardcore gamers"

the order is for casual gamers who just want graphics instead of the rest.

DigitalRaptor1981d ago (Edited 1981d ago )

Bloodborne is for those who know what to expect from Miyazaki.

The Order: 1886 is for those who know what to expect from a linear third-person action-adventure game (as defined here: ).

Yeah... I think we're past the point of the "gameplay" argument being used against it. The vast majority of the latest impressions have rated the gameplay as solid and satisfying, whilst the graphics and story are so immersing that sometimes they have no other impact but to overcome the gameplay. I don't care. I know I want to experience this game.

The fact that both these games are releasing as big PS4 exclusives within a month of each other, is testament to the diversity of PlayStation brand, and as such defies the casual label. I'm looking forward to both and I'm certainly not what is defined as casual.

ic3fir31981d ago

the order is another Ryse,driveclub and killzone SF, amazing graphicz, but sucks on another things.

Linear, QTE, No coop, no PvP, 6h-8h is to small.

Another medíocre game

"Linear, QTE, No coop, no PvP, 6h-8h is to small."
Yettttttttttt I loved wolfenstein and countless other titles ooooooo so gtfo so to you every game needs those to be good boy bye👋 .

Hellsvacancy1980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

"No coop, no PvP"

Please stop talking, as will I

morganfell1980d ago

"Lol this guy."

It is quite satisfying that we will never have to read an informed opinion by this person. This is particularly true concerning The Order.

I am quite happy with his and similar opinions because then The Order becomes like a secret which you do not have to share with those that do not deserve to hear it.

mkis0071980d ago


Funny, you just described Bioshock (just substitute QTE for pipedream hacking).

Don't think that game got any flak.

<<Insert The order 1886 is Ryse, QTE 6-8 hours looooong lol no gameplay only graphics comment here>>

Aloy-Boyfriend1980d ago

What a stupid comment. unappreciative gamers like you should stop playing video games

OB1Biker1980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

Yea I just wonder why people bother replying instead of just flagging it as trolling

Master-H1980d ago

Bloodborne and the Souls series >>> 99% of games, so that's not saying much.

PeaSFor1980d ago

im probably a bigger "hardcore gamer" than you and im getting both games ic3fir3, U MAD BRAH?


that's what i thought!

jznrpg1980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

I have been playing games for 35 years , and i want to play both.

LightDiego1980d ago

Now people will start to complain of The Order: 1886 because there is no PvP?
The haters are looking desperate now.

PeaSFor1980d ago

the haters and negative nancys are blatantly straw grabbing at this point.

DanteVFenris6661980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

I feel like the director of bloodborne is making his series play more like the dark fantasy manga bezerk. Large weapon on one arm, gun on the other, and can move at high speeds despite the massive weapon. If we can get gut's arm cannon I will be sold 20times over and make me a guts character

Actually I think from software should make their next release a berzerk game. Just mod it to be berzerk story and character that would be the best thing ever as the current gamplay would work quite well. Sadly I know that will never happen

Stapleface1980d ago

Looking forward to both. It's looking like a very nice line up for early 2015 so far.

hemmo19861980d ago

While i had my doubts about this game I'm very quickly starting to change my mind. Can't wait to try this game out.
