The Order: 1886

Galahad's Tinder profile just got better, because The Order just got a photo mode


Prepare to right swipe
Apr 13
Left swipe, left swipe, left swipe. That's what scores of Victorian-era London ladies did when they saw Galahad on Tinder. His profile was so boring -- just a bunch of pictures of the back of his head. Also, his bio said he ... read

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


But, I found The Postal Service
Mar 12
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... read

The Order: 1886's launch trailer sure looks nifty


Cinematic as all get up
Feb 19
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... read
Not enough chaos
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... read feature

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


Take cover, Galahad!
Feb 04
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... read

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


'We build a world purely for the purpose of making more than one game'
Jan 13
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... read

The Order teaser ditches 'cinematic' for creepy singing children


Lil Bobby Paige, innit guv'nuh!
Jan 13
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.  read

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


What a horrible night to have a curse
Dec 26
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... read

Maybe just steer clear of The Order: 1886's police station


I don't think you'll like what's in there
Dec 15
Ready at Dawn released a new trailer this morning imploring prospective The Order: 1886 players to "join the London police." Before you rush into things headfirst, take one minute to watch what happens to those law... read
Not saying we should 86 this order, but, hoping there's more to it
I finally played The Order: 1886, Ready at Dawn's upcoming PS4, monster-filled, alternate-London-history third-person shooter here at Paris Games Week. I still really want to like it. I like a lot of things about it. Well, ma... read feature

Creating The Order: 1886's Half-Breeds


Ready At Dawn talks making believable monsters
Jun 26
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 ... read

Order The Order's two collector's editions


Pre-order The Order in order to ensure it comes out
Jun 18
I think we missed these during E3, but Amazon has The Order: 1886 up for sale (listed to come out February 20) with its two distinct  "Collector's" ($80) and "Premium" ($150) editions. So you true, true fans are going to need to double up and knock your mother's ashes off the mantle to make room for two statues.  read

Sony gives us a peek at PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886


Spooky!
Jun 09
Sony gave us another look at The Order: 1886 tonight during its E3 media briefing. Check out the foreboding new trailer for the recently delayed title above. Looks creepy as hell. I love it. read
The Order: 1886 delay

The Order: 1886 has been pushed back to 'early 2015'


Originally targeted for quarter 4 of 2014
May 27
At a recent preview event for The Order: 1886, Sony revealed that Ready at Dawn is now targeting an early 2015 release date for its game. Previously, it had been aiming for a quarter 4 release in 2014. Contributing factors to... read
But we still don't have much to go on
Sony seems reluctant to let us see too much of The Order: 1886 at once. In February, Dale had a chance to check it out in a hands-off demo, and his biggest takeaway was that it looked absolutely stunning. After finally h... read feature

The Order: 1886: Handsome men with guns & nice coats


Say "chowder"
Feb 26
I may have been expecting something else out of The Order: 1886, for whatever reason, but I'm settling in to its identity as another cinematic (maybe the most cinematic) cover-based third-person shooter. I think it's all the fancy dress and mustaches that are convincing me. It looks like you beat up Hitler in this gameplay trailer, too. You don't, but it looks like. read
Impressions from the first gameplay showing
Sony and Ready at Dawn have been tight-lipped about upcoming PS4 game The Order: 1886 up until now, and even with what they showed us last week, it seems that they're still just barely scratching the surface. But it's not lik... read feature
