News: The Order: 1886 new details released


This week saw the unveiling of some new details for Sony’s upcoming PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886.

Developer Ready at Dawn kicked off the announcements by revealing that the game will run at 1080p but only at 30fps.

“Currently we do not aim [for] 60 frames per second,” explained Ready at Dawn boss Ru Weerasuriya in an interview with German gaming website Play3. “In a first person shooter that [surely] makes sense. Also fighting games are undoubtedly predestined for 60 frames. But for us, the cinematic experience is in the foreground [basically focus] – presented in full HD 1080p. In favour of spectacular effects and the highest resolution we restrict ourselves to a fluid 30 frames per second.”

Many gamers had hoped that 1080p and 60fps would become standard this gen, but with Sony’s Killzone: Shadow Fall and the upcoming inFamous: Second Son both running at 30fps it appears that this is not the case, at least not yet.

The second piece of information came from Ready at Dawn co-founder Andrea Pessino who confirmed that The Order: 1886 will not contain any form of multiplayer.

“No multiplayer, it is a single player, third person action adventure game. :) ” Pessino said via Twitter.

He added: “[It's] better to do one thing well than a whole bunch half-assed. :) We are trying to make a SP experience you will enjoy.”

With the game seemingly sharing a lot of resemblances with the Gears of War series, many had assumed that it would feature multiplayer. This not being the case may not be such a bad thing however, many singleplayer focused games are often for the worse as a result of tacked on multiplayer modes.

The Order: 1886 is currently set for release late this year and is shaping up very nicely indeed.
