Another day and another video about The Order: 1886. If you were hoping to learn more about the game, you best lower your expectations before you watch the video.
The entire video is narrated by one of the developers and he speaks about the lore of the game. He goes on about how they used advanced game capture technology to truly blur the lines between gameplay and cinematics. Too bad he didn’t say anything in regards to what the game is actually about beyond what we already knew.
Even if you read the accompanying blog post by Ryan Clements, you will not gather much more information. His entire article goes on at length about how good the game looks and how well the controls work. Two things that can only be truly judged in person and which opinions can differ greatly.
I like to look for the oddities and I found a goodie here:
Do you see what I’m talking about? If you scratched your head and mumbled “but that’s a PS3 screenshot”, then you see what I did. Was this or is this game being developed for the PS3? My hope is that it is just a PS3 theme but why would you want a PS3 theme for a game that you can only play on the PS4? So confusing and so silly.
If I could give Sony and Ready At Dawn any advice right now, it would be to just shut the publicity machine off for awhile. The game has already been delayed, so you should just save this stuff for E3 and beyond. Your embarrassing yourselves.
