The Order: 1886 Dev on Gameplay: Gunplay Is "Very Satisfying;" Spectacle will "Blow People's Minds"

There's a lot of talk about The Order: 1886's graphics, but what about its gameplay? Ready at Dawn's CTO Andrea Pessino promised good things even on that front.

I can't wait to blow off enemy heads with the lightning arc gun

Personally, I really hope they improved the thermite rifle. In the demos I played it really was a bit too convoluted. let alone that people did not understand how it worked, but it really felt too "spray and pray" for my taste even when you did know the mechanics.

What's weird is that the thermite rifle is one of the few things I've really liked about the game they've shown. I thought that concept was awesome and when I read people just not understanding how it works, I was (and am still) truly baffled.

I know I haven't played it, but it seems really simple to understand and just a matter of style of gunplay.

@Christopher: the concept IS relatively simple, but the whole weapon was, during my early gameplay, extremely imprecise.

I sprayed the thermite, then centered the grendade perfectly in the middle of the cloud, and for some reason it didn't hit or ignite at times, while other times it worked well. Whether the enemies were actually ignited by the fiery cloud, killed or even wounded at all was also quite hit and miss. Kind of felt like a lottery.

I'm hoping it's just a matter of development. Gonna have another hands-on event on Monday and then I'll know :D

What you described is exactly how I imagined it. You really want to use it in spaces where they can't run and just litter the area with thermite and watch them burn. Not good for open area use.

Have fun with the hands-on event.

I will have to say the shotgun has thus far impressed me most for its in your face brutality.

my jaw dropped when i saw that.

I hope the game does good critically so people that was knocking it down can suck it. I'm doing my best to keep myself away from spoilers with so many new articles popping out with gameplay videos 😰😵. If the story is engaging enough then this will be another franchise to keep our eyes on. I can imagine sequels where we'll be battling out with different half breeds. Really hoping for vampires and what not.

well....what dev wouldn't talk up their game lol


I've also been called a Sony Fanboy on here when I say something about Microsoft

funny how that works?

but seriously take that fanboy crap elsewhere and think objectively, a dev talking up their game is the same as blowing smoke

doesnt matter what systems its coming to, I would say the same thing.

Talk of the Order has been predominantly about graphics.

It's nice to hear about the gameplay for a change.
