Sony recently released a new video for Ready At Dawn’s ‘The Order: 1886’.
Titled ‘Narration and Revolution’ the video features the studio’s Game Director Dana Jan who briefly discusses the reason for the game’s setting being in an alternate history London. Jan also talks of Sony’s newest console, and how working on the platform allowed them to cross the boundaries of believable characters. Thanks to complicated motion capture technology at the team’s disposal, Ready At Dawn hopes to deliver an experience where players will no longer feel like they are playing a game. They plan on accomplishing this by blurring the line between gameplay and cinematic cutscenes; the same character models and detail featured in the cutscenes will be present when engaging in firefights, running etc. Based on the footage so far the developer seems to be on the right track.
Looks more like a scene from a movie than a video game.
It was recently revealed that The Order would not be making the company’s expected fall 2014 release window. It has been delayed until early 2015, so the developer could spend more time polishing it up to deliver the type of game they promised. We can expect to see more of the intriguing new IP in less than two weeks at this year’s E3.
