The Order: 1886  



Creating The Order: 1886's Half-Breeds


9:00 PM on 06.26.2014



Here's Ready At Dawn discussing its thought process behind the beasts of The Order: 1886.

The scariest thing about the Half-Breeds? "They are smart," says game director Dana Jan. "To me, I think that's actually the scariest thing about them. When something can look at you -- size you up -- and be your equal, if not above you, I think it becomes very, very scary."

It's often the monsters that have a hint of humanity to them that end up being my favorites. I'm not so sure about The Order's Lycans being particularly "believable," as far as creatures that could exist outside of fiction, but I see where they're coming from in terms of a design exercise.

Embrace the bomb: The Order is $40 right now on Amazon

If you were hesitant to go all in with The Order: 1886 when it first came out last month, then now may be a good time to see what this cinematic adventure is all about. Currently, Amazon is offering the game for $39.99. Considering the oft-debated length of the Sony exclusive, this just might be the right price for the more stubborn of us. [Amazon]more

The Order: 1886 won't find safety in the London Underground

I was waiting for a cross-town train in the London Underground when it struck me. I've been waiting since February to find a game that would look and sound like a movie. So, I changed my plans; I rented a PS4 and a TV, and t...more

Game News Haikus: The Order: 1886, Pokémon Shuffle, and more

The first episode of Game News Haikus went over pretty well with people who watched it. If you're one of those people, thanks for taking the time. If you're not, maybe watch that one and the new one and every future episode?...more

The Order: 1886's launch trailer sure looks nifty

Well, I don't know what to believe anymore. This trailer has explosions, lycanthropes, and action up the wazoo. Everything looks so pretty, and the mustaches look real enough that I'm trying to pet them through my computer s...more

Review: The Order: 1886

The Order: 1886 opens up in a fairly gritty fashion -- a first-person sequence involving a near drowning, by way of water torture. It begins with a bang, thrusting you into this unknown, and frankly frightening world whe...more

How short is too short? Controversy over The Order: 1886's length

Although the embargo for The Order: 1886 is Thursday morning, many gamers have gotten their hands on the title this past weekend and...they've completed it. Since there is no multiplayer component, controversy has been s...more

The Order: 1886 collector's edition is unboxed, under fire

Third-person shooter protagonists spend a bulk of their time glued to chest-high walls, so it's fitting that the highlight of The Order: 1886's collector's edition depicts this very action. In this unboxing video that P...more

Expect The Order: 1886 to be a series, not a one-off

As a single-player only, narrative-driven game, The Order: 1886 feels a tad quaint (in a good way), as even the most classically cinematic, narrative-driven things of recent years (Last of Us, Uncharted, Mass Effect) aff...more

The Order teaser ditches 'cinematic' for creepy singing children

I'm still a bit wary of the PS4-exclusive The Order, but if they've last minute reimagined the game as a collection of Scary Stories to the Tell in the Dark sung by disgusting children, they might have a good 2D horror game on their hands. more

The Order: 1886 trailer tries taking cues from a Gears of War classic

This feels vaguely familiar, doesn't it? A somber trailer punctuated by an eerily haunting, soft-spoken song. Gears of War struck gold with this approach many years back with the "Mad World" trailer. The Order: 1886's a...more
