Ready at Dawn's Deformers is in a much better place

The Order: 1886 studio Ready at Dawn recently came out with a multiplayer-only blob action game with a cute aesthetic, a nice 'n' chunky game feel, and a melodic soundtrack from Austin Wintory. Those were the positives. Unfortunately, they ...

Ready at Dawn's Deformers has had one troubled launch

Did you know that the studio behind The Order: 1886 has a new game out? It's true. Released last week, Deformers is an altogether different concept from Ready at Dawn, trading out a cinematic romp through alternate-history London for little...

Ready at Dawn's arena combat game Deformers is out April 21

It's been months and months since Zack told us about the squishy arena combat game Deformers, and I'm still tickled by the fact that Ready at Dawn, the maker of The Order: 1886, is also behind this. As a quick catch-up, Deformers is a game ...

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 then I called yo...

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 screen. But, Chr...

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 where half-breed c...

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 PlayStation thre...

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) affix multiplayer ...

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

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-bringers. On s...

The Order: 1886 sure is, uh, cinematic

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, mainly its aesthe...

Creating The Order: 1886's Half-Breeds

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 the...

Order The Order's two collector's editions

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...

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 the delay were...

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

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 an...

The Order: 1886: Gritty, cinematic eye candy

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 like they didn't w...
