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

What a horrible night to have a curse

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 attempt doesn't quite achieve the same effect that Epic's video did. No surprise there; not many trailers do. Still, it nails that contrast between potential peril and "it's about to go down" that ensures audiences that this night won't be so silent.
