  • Ready At Dawn: "We Blame Ourselves" for The Order’s Debacle

    Developer Ready at Dawn has been testy with a lot of irate gamers in earlier weeks, the founder and CTO Andrea Pessino of the studio told Game’s princess and Italian source that it was the teams fault. She stated:

     "I just have to blame ourselves. In some way, it’s obvious that we’re not communicating our intentions…It may be a lack of our ability to communicate our vision. It seems like everyone is trying to find, not a problem but rather dishonesty, it seems like we’re trying to hide something. I thought we had been very clear since the very beginning, about what we were trying to do."

    She went on to say that their game is "rather unique and specific" and that it was not just about the frame rates and "a couple polygons here and there." Hoping that the studio will do a better job in presenting their future projects, so that will have a "little faith that what we're saying is true." This was a very diplomatic way of approaching things, The Order: 1886 is a game that currently it seems that every one is loving to hate. There may be some truth to what Pessino said.

  • Ready At Dawn Done Explaining "Clickbait" Rumors

    Finally they did it, they pissed the devs off. Ready at Dawn the studio responsible for The Order: 1886 has seen a lot of doubt and hate over the past few months.

    Right now not many people can blame them, especially not Andrea Pessino for his reaction on twitter regarding various tweets about the constant - and largely false - negative headlines. One recent headline talked about the game's length (claiming it was only five hours), supposed graphical downgrading, and other accusations.

    Pessino like any human being has decided to stop responding to the stupidity. His final response was I am done commenting on clickbait rumors about game length, "downgrade" idiocy and such nonsense. Don't bother asking.”

    The game itself hasn’t generated the best attention from the gaming media as a whole, one could always say that it was the studios fault for showing gameplays and trailers that didn’t exactly wow the viewers. At the same time gamers not a majority but still a large amount are extremely hateful and childish these bunch are what might have forced Pession the write such a message.

  • The Order: 1886 Gameplay Controversy and Delay

    the order

    The Order: 1886 is one of the most anticipated upcoming titles, not only because it is a PS4 exclusive but also because the tech and story of the game thus far looks very intriguing. It is a single player experience set in an alternate Victorian London.

    Although the game was set to be released by 2014’s holiday season it seems that the developers had decided to push the launch back a few months. At a pre-E3 Sony event, Ready at Dawn chief Ru Weerasuriya explained their decision to Eurogamer,

    "We want to hold true to something we've talked about in the past, which is delivering the experience without having this ebb and flow of: oh, this was really great and that was kind of meh, because we sacrificed a little time on it."

    "We have an open discussion with Sony all the time. We said, 'Look, we can achieve the quality you expect everywhere, but delivering on this is going to take a few more months.'

    "It's not that long. It's worth it if we can deliver on the promise we made."

    The developers have gone for what can be a called a seamless “filmic” experience. The high visual fidelity allows them to create beautiful visuals which cannot be separated from the cut scenes, creating a beautiful unique experience. According to the developers this has been a greater challenge and they are learning as they move forward.

    In my opinion it is commendable that they are taking the time to polish the game to its best state instead of just pushing it out the door. Maybe this decision will play in their favor as new issue arose with fan uproar concerning the new gameplay video for the Order. According to those who are complaining, the game looks repetitive and uninteresting.

    Check out the video:

    Honestly from that short video there is little that can very little that can be assumed. All I got a sense of was a very polished cover mechanic and beautiful visuals. Since it is a 3rd person shooter it will definitely have similarities to other games but calling it boring just based off of what we see here seems illogical. Well that is my opinion, what do you guys think?

  • The Order 1886: Almost Max’s Out PS4


    The Order 1886 is a truly unique looking IP and PlayStation fans are really hyped about its release. Naturally people have been looking for all that they could find about this game, and it seems we finally got a bit more info.

    Recently we got to know a bit more about the story and there was even a gameplay video. Now we get to find out how pretty or visually impressive this game is going to be. Gamepur asked Blooper Team Marketing Manager Aron Cender and about The Order. Although Cender isn’t a part of Ready at Dawn’s new IP but he is part of the Blooper Team who are developing the PS4 exclusive Basement Crawl, so he probably understands quite a bit about the PS4 and similar matters.  When he was asked whether The Order 1886 will be maxing out the PS4 he said,

    "I don’t think it's maxing it out, but I believe it should be pretty close to it. I hope we are gonna see more games of that visual quality in the future, since that was the reason next-gen was introduced."

    He went on to praise the details of the game’s environment which are supposed to be amazing, and a key factor in the game. Well the good thing is that the new consoles are so accessible that developers can start making great games from the start. As I said before, this is a great era for gamers.

  • The Order 1866 Will Be Shown in it's True Beauty this E3

    the order 1866 e3 2014

    The Order 1866 is one of the top PlayStation 4 games that has been announced so far, and although we don’t really know that much about the title, there are a lot of gamers out there impatiently waiting to see what the title will have to offer.

    I don’t think we’ll be treated to anything that special for while yet in regards to the Order 1866, but I do believe that E3 will be a very important event for the upcoming game, and I think the developers behind the project, Ready At Dawn, will use E3 to it’s “full potential.”

    And by that I mean gameplay reveals, details on the game, release date announcements, and maybe even more. E3 is still quite a far way away though, and there are plenty of titles coming before that point which will satisfy our undying first for next gen video games.

    For those that really cannot wait for The Order 1866, here’s a bit of information to keep you at bay a little longer.

    This week Ready At Dawn confirmed that The Order 1866 will be a single player only title, which means, although there won’t be any way to enjoy the game with your friends online, it means that Ready At Dawn can put all of their focus into a decent standalone singleplayer experience, something which I think we have all deserved for a very long time.

    Secondly, it’s reported that The Order 1866 will run at 1080P at 30FPS on the PlayStation 4, and it’s not entirely impossible that the game will also come to the PlayStation 3. Let’s hope the game lives up to it’s hype.

  • The Order: 1886 - No Multiplayer, Runs at 30FPS


    More news has been revealed about the highly talked about PlayStation 4 exclusive, The Order: 1886.

    It seem the developers have decided against a multiplayer and will only be creating a single player experience for this game. This decision seems to be quite popular with a number of developer these days.

    Andrea Pessino, Ready at Dawn founder, was asked a number of questing on Twitter and one them included the question – whether there will be a multiplayer component to the game. To this the response from Pessino was a simple:

    "No multiplayer. It is a single player, third person action adventure game."

    Pesseno went on to explain this decision which was basically “better to do one thing well than a whole bunch half-assed”. I believe many people like me totally appreciate this sort of mentality when it comes to developing a game.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with a single player experience. Who doesn’t know about the masterpiece BioShock Infinite turned out to be. Even Infamous Second Son will just be a single player experience. So no multiplayer though cuts out chances of co-op too which I guess a lot of us will miss. However, we really can’t gage that now considering we still know very little about the game at this time.

    More regarding the technical side of the game, GamingBold recently reported that the game will run on a native 1080p and at 30 frames per second. Studio boss Ru Weerasuriya they “are not currently aiming for 60 FPS”. Guess that is because 60 FPS is not that big a deal for a third person shooter. Wonder how the general gaming community will react to this. 

  • The Order: 1886 Preview

    the order ps4

    Ready at Dawn, a development company known mostly for their handheld games for the PSP, seems poised to take on the triple-A game industry in the next-gen console war. They released a preview of their next title, The Order: 1886, a third-person action title set in during a fantastical take of the Industrial Revolution in England. The game will have you play as Galahad and the clandestine Order on a quest to protect humanity from forces of the dark. He will be accompanied by three allies from The Order, and as you might have guessed from a secret organization protecting the world from evil, the history of the society itself is wrapped in mystery, and they go way back. Templars, anyone?

    The game will feature tons of cool weapons that you will peruse to fend off the power of evil in the game. However, the game itself will be a linear, story driven adventure which will deliver various environments and gameplay situations to the player. However, the most interesting aspect of the game, at least to yours truly, is the idea that the game will be set on the very real Industrial Revolution period, and that there will be real historical people that you will meet along the way. The designers have said that they are taking some artistic liberties when it comes to the accuracies of these historical people and the chronology, and it seems that the plethora of conflicting ideas and theories during the time will come to the forefront during the course of the quest.

    The late 19th century England seems to be the perfect setup for some gun-toting action adventure game, however there is still no words yet on how open and interactive the game environment will be. We will just have to wait and see if this new IP is going to be one of the highlight of the next-gen console war. If it is, you can expect us to have modded PS4 and modded Xbox One controllers available for use in The Order.
