Here are the very first impressions of the game I’ve been working on – The Order 1886 – with a stunning trailer that has officially been announced to the public during E3 at the Sony press conference in Los Angeles. The game itself is still in production but so far I can say that I am already extremely proud to be part of such an exciting and creative challenging project.
Ready at Dawn have been best known for their PSP titles: Daxter and God of War: Chains of Olympus – which have won the independent studio multiple awards in the industry. During the press conference Sony announced that The Order 1886 will be an exclusive title for the Playstation 4 and is co-produced by their Santa Monica studio.
To mention is that the footage you’ll see is being rendered in the actual engine using Ready at Dawn home-made technology.
The crew over at Gameinformer have recently visited the studio on-site, covered a feature on their November edition and talked to creative director Ru and Andrea about the history of the studio. Both are sharing insights on how this game came about, speaking with the key members of the development team.
“The Order: 1886 offers a fascinating glimpse into a past twisted by strange events that alter the course of history. Players step into the shoes of a knight who is part of an ancient order sworn to protect humanity from the threat of monstrous half-breed creatures. Ready At Dawn’s fascinating fiction for its new franchise draws inspiration from ancient mythology and legend combined with actual historical figures; the result is a story we can’t wait to experience in full. This fiction is buttressed by an action-packed shooting mechanic fueled by awesome and unusual weapons, like a rifle that can spew blasts of lightning. The Order’s incredible visuals and technology speak to what we can all look forward to in the games designed from the ground up to run on next-gen hardware like the PS4.” Gameinformer 2012
